When it comes to squeezing into tiny apartments, Sydneysiders are certainly at making it work. But cohabitating with your feline friend in tiny digs certainly sets a challenge, thanks to cumbersome, ugly and stinky litter boxes. The versions at D&C Lifestyle are stylishly suited for small spaces. There's a range of choices from the Cat Condo, a complete self contained apartment for cats thru to the Modko FLIP or the sensationally uber MODKAT.
This may be the biggest source of cat smell in your home, so turn your attention here first.
Scoop the litter boxes daily, if not more often. And, of course, get the waste out of your house! Scoop the hard bits and discard in a plastic bag. Knot the end so that smells do not escape. Place in the outside garbage bin.
Use unscented litter. Like air fresheners, scented litters only “mask” smells. Plus, lots of cats are turned off by scented litters and may choose another location for bathroom purposes. That will definitely make your house stink!
Sprinkle baking soda in the bottom of the litter box. Many people swear by this method to help minimize odours.
Change the litter frequently. Experts recommend a couple of times a month. Also, each time you change the litter, wash out the box with mild soap and water.
