If you're as tired of scooping up cat litter as I am, investing in an automatic self-cleaning cat litter box might be just the thing. But before throwing down the cash, take into consideration if your cat prefers open boxes, lots of privacy, or cozy spots when using the litter box. Automatic self-cleaners have come a long way over the years from the loud contraptions that scared both you and your cat. These machines are quiet and efficient and do all the dirty work for you.
Now here's a subject you never thought you'd hear about in conjunction with New York Fashion Week: cat litter. Let's face it: it's not the most stylish of subjects. And neither is cleaning out the litter box, though it's a necessary responsibility of being a pet parent. The good news is that — in addition to eco-fabulous cat litter options — there are a wealth of fashionable and functional litter box choices that go beyond the old pan-and-gravel standbys. So just in time for the kickoff of NYFW festivities, we thought we'd highlight our picks of the . . . er, litter.
Can you spot the piece of kitty furniture? Well, naturally there's not much to choose from in this picture, but the ModKat box is far from an eyesore in this scene. In fact, its style just captured Best Accessory at the International Contemporary Furniture Fair! Even though we're just getting a product peek for now, I've already spotted seven features that make this product stand out . . . on top of its swanky design. See for yourself inside!
When I first spotted this on moderncat, I thought it was a prototype for a futuristic creation. However, much to my surprise, the Litter-Garage ($180) already exists. According to the manufacturer's website, it only takes an hour of installation (provided you have an existing cat door) and is a safe way to stash the stinky box in the garage without worrying about a feline taking a nap under your car. And how well-prepared you'll be come clean up time – there's space for a scoop, waste bags, and even antibacterial handwipes, too. Kitty's poo stays out of sight, while your lil kitty-poo stays on the top of your mind.
