Cats are often very particular about their litter boxes. This guide will show you how to make a sifting cat litter box that your cat will love using.
What you need to make for it
In order to make your own sifting cat litter box, you will need the following supplies: a storage container with a lid (we used a Sterilite container that is 18.5 inches long, 12.75 inches wide, and 7.5 inches high), a piece of mesh wire that is 18.5 inches long, 12.75 inches wide, and 1/4 inch high, a metal hanger, and a can opener.
How to make a sifting cat litter box
A lot of cat owners know the struggle of having to constantly clean their cat’s litter box. Not only is it a hassle to have to constantly scoop the dirty litter, but it can also be pretty smelly. The good news is that there is a way to make this process a lot easier: by creating a sifting cat litter box. This box will automatically separate the clean litter from the dirty litter, so all you have to do is dump out the dirty litter and replace it with fresh litter once a week. It’s a simple project that anyone can do, and it will make your life a lot easier.
Benefits of having a sifting cat litter box
It is a great way to cut down on the amount of litter you need to use each month, and it also makes it easier to clean your cat’s litter box. By using it, you’ll be able to remove the clumps and solid waste from the litter without having to dump out the entire contents of the box. This is a great way to keep your cat’s litter box clean and fresh without having to spend a lot of time on maintenance.
Tips for how to make your cat use the sifting litter box
One of the best ways to get your cat to start using the sifting litter box is to keep the old litter box in the same spot. Place the new sifting box next to the old one and slowly start moving the old one further away. You can also try sprinkling a little of the old litter in the new box to help your cat make the transition.
As your cat gets more comfortable with the new box, you can start to slowly decrease the amount of old litter. If your cat still isn’t using the sifting box,
it might help to prop the door open a little bit so she can see inside. And finally, patience is key! Your cat will start using the box when she’s ready.
Final step in the process
The final step in this project is to put everything back together. Replace the top of the litter box and replace the screws. If you want, you can add a little bit of silicone adhesive around the edges of the hole to make sure that the litter doesn’t escape. Finally, fill up the sifting tray with litter and your cat litter box is ready to go!
