Last week brought a new kitty into our household. This has increased my resolve to keep the litter situation under control. Some of the ways I do this are obvious – find a litter that works, clean it out every single day. One of my methods is a little unorthodox, and worth sharing.
Kitty litter and baby diapers, not so different after all. Both are stinky, both are constant. About 6 months ago I started using baby products to manage litter. I found some cheap diaper bags at a dollar store (100/$1), and got a Diaper Genie at Walmart for under $15. Every day I scoop the litter into the bags, and lock it away in the Genie. The bags get emptied when the Genie is full, about once every 6-8 weeks. The first round of liners still hasn’t run out, which means it’s pretty affordable. Having the disposal right next to littler box means I clean it out more frequently.
And best of all, it keeps things smelling MUCH fresher.
