We are big on urging people to replace litter boxes annually for two big reasons. No matter how much you scoop and clean, even use Anti Icky Poo cleaner once or twice a month to help with litter odor control they still get stinky after awhile and this can bother the cat. And goodness knows we don’t want to do anything to cause a cat to develop “litter box aversion.” Another plus to replacing boxes annually, we help to ensure a nice neutral smelling home for all who enter it.
But, we also detest land fill and waste. So what to do with those old litter boxes? We posed this question to our Face Book fans and here are the replies. If you have a clever idea, email us and we’ll include it in a future newsletter. Please put “uses for old litter boxes” in the subject line.
Debra: “Use to establish seedlings.”
Tara: “A flower box”
Jody: “My partner uses them to store messy garage stuff”
Sandi: “I knew a man who used one when changing the oil in his car”
Brenda: “I use aluminum roasting pans, cheap. Dump out soiled litter, put pan in the recycling bin”
