I saw your article on the outdoor cat litter box. We are looking at building one, and had a few ?'s
As we are looking to have a kitty door to an outdoor enclosed kitty litter box ~ we were wondering if 1) does nature self-clean? 2) is there much odor after a few years of use? 3) what happens in winter? 4) any additional advice welcome
Thanks inkera for your interest & post! To a certain extent nature does self clean it's self and depending on how far from your dwelling will depend on how much of a potential odor problem you may have. Raking out the box weekly and replenishing the oil dry as needed will go a long way to solving any odor problems. If odor persists try using a deodorizer for the litter box, such as Arm & Hammer. Discard the leavings by placing them in plastic shopping bags and putting in the trash or burying them in the yard. If snow is heavy in your region, constructing a slanted roof to keep out the snow is advisable( just insure it is sturdy & well constructed). Hope these tips help! Best of luck!

Why would a litter trained cat suddenly begin to use the house as his litter box?This did not just start. He's now been doing this for a little while. One vet I asked seemed to think it was stress.
