LOOOL Love the last step, Azerane

Since my mother’s visit has put ideas in Chewie’s head, he now has a litterbox in every major room in the house. He loves to just sit in them and chew on hay while thinking about world domination.

The box in the master bedroom is a medium-sized clear IKEA storage box. http://www.ikea.com/kw/en/catalog/products/40102978/ The one in the guest bedroom is a white high-sided IKEA organizer box. http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/40234709/ The box in the living room is a large cat litter box.

The bedroom boxes are used less frequently now that his highness enjoys toileting in his living room box (something he never did before my mom visited). So they get a thin layer of newspaper, a medium layer of the purple paper litter (Kaytee Clean and Cozy) and a thin layer of hay for his nibbling pleasure (and to reduce the amount of purple shreds of paper that fly out when he launches). They only get changed when there’s enough waste to require a change.

The living room box gets half a puppy pee pad folded to fit the bottom of the box, a thin layer of newspaper, and a generous layer of hay. Chewie arranges the hay the way he likes, usually toileting in one long half of the box while snacking in the other. On alternating days I either flip the snacking hay on top of the toilet area to provide a dry surface again and top off the snacking area, or I clean out the box completely. It’s quick and easy to change out (I roll up the mess and put in bin bag, then wipe down box with water/vinegar spray before rebuilding) and there’s very little waste of materials.
