Life with a pet that can do its business indoors makes Sunday mornings a little more restful, but not necessarily sweeter.

Kitty litter, for all of its wonderful practicality, can create quite a mess. There are strategies for helping your cat cope with missing the box from time to time and things you can try to reduce the smell. But the straight poop is that some folks just can’t make peace with the concept of an open box in the bathroom.
If your concern is more philosophical than actual, here are some nifty ways to dispose of your dilemma:
Sweeten the Pot
Try a scented or natural product, like a litter made of pine to at least alter, if not completely eliminate, the odor.
Automatically Change Things
A self- changing litter box sweeps the solids from the pan, keeping litter from staying in the box where the cat goes. They can range from basic to extreme, but they can be well worth the scratch if you hate to clean the box. Plus, if your cat is prone to urinary tract infections, a self-changing box will help to keep bacteria from growing close to where your cat will be going.
