Covered litter trays have had a huge surge in popularity over the past two decades. These litter trays have a top and a bottom, with a hole or a flap in the entrance or in the top.
Pros of covered litter trays
The closed-in design greatly reduces litter tray odours spreading throughout the home.
Less litter scatter
Some cats like to try to dig their way to China in the litter tray, the enclosed litter tray prevents cat litter being flicked out of the tray.
We don’t have to look at their waste
Let’s face it, nobody wants to look at clumps of feces and urine in the litter tray between scoops.
Prevents dogs accessing the litter
Some dogs will eat urine if they have easy access to the litter tray, not only is this revolting, but it can potentially spread disease.
Some cats prefer the privacy that a covered litter tray offers.
