If you have a storage space in your kitchen that houses all of your cat essentials, put the litter tray in there, too. This clever design by Dominic McKenzie is simple, but you may be best off finding someone who is handy with a jigsaw to create an entryway. Slot a shelf in to split the cupboard in two, and pop a scoop and some bags on top to keep everything together.

    The tracking of kitty feet and spillage when pouring litter creates the problem of litter grinding into carpeting, not helpful if your renting. I recommend putting a large tray under the litter box, the extra litter and the waste container. The kind of tray used under washing machines to catch water from spills works well. They are cheep, usually white plastic, with edges, & about 30″x30″. If it should break, it is easy to replace at a hardwear store or any place.that sells washing machines. They could also be used as a large feeding tray.
