You need to post this on ikea hacker http://ikeahacker.blogspot.com/
They would love this. I love Ikea a lady on Craigslist just gave me about 2,500 worth of Herman Miller desk tops Free because she had no legs for them and I went to IKEA and bought the legs! Now I am designing a really nice craft / Sewing room. If I still had a kitty I would build one of these. I'm passing it onto my best friend for her spoiled kitty Cloehy! Great job!

This is ingenious. Cat litter is always horrible no matter where it is, this is a brilliant brilliant solution

Always in need of supplies, especially fabric- let's do a personal swap. I'll craft in return for fabric (I am a fabric tart)


shop the swap, my shop

I thought I'd share my solution too.  When I did this a few years ago my budget was closer to $50 so I found a storage container (similar to this one at Target but cheaper http://tinyurl.com/cktoc5 ).  I just cut a hole in one of the sides without using a kitty door.  The nice thing is that I can store extra litter and the "litter locker" in it as well.  I lined the bottom and sides with vinyl to make cleaning easier if he missed the litter box.  It worked great for a while until my cat decided that peeing on the carpets is way more convenient than a litter box.  Now we have two boxes out in full view to tempt him back to the box.  Hopefully we can enclose the box again soon.  We are just afraid to make any changes and upset him into using the carpets again.

i have the exact same problem with our new apartment and was contemplating the exact same thing. i saw those ungodly expensive ones you can buy online, now i know it can be done relatively cheaply. i was even looking at ikea too.  Great job!

I already have a cabinet that would be perfect for this! Right now my cat is indoor/outdoor and only uses a litter box when she is being house sat or when it snows.  But we are moving soon to a town that's nearly 300 miles away and I am terrified she is going to freak out and run away so I plan on trapping her inside for a few weeks and this will make that much more pleasant!

That is a really good idea. I don't know if our cats would use it though. They track their litter all over like you wouldn't believe.  Angry  And your cat looks like one of our cats. Smiley

Me + Craftster = LOVE. Wink

Thanks for posting this - I showed this to the BF and he loved it too, a couple months later we have our own! 

I tried to shop Ikea because the dimensions were PERFECT (we have the same box) but they wanted $300 to ship to ND for a $150 cabinet....ummm...yea, probably not!  We found one on Walmart.com and had it shipped (free!) to a local store - You really saved us, this was the perfect solution!   (and the kitties love their new privacy so I'm sure they thank you too!)
