At what point on the the graph do automation and cat security meet?

I want to automate cat litter scooping, however, I do not want to frighten our cats or take away their sense of territory. Can these goals be reconciled? [more inside]

Comparing Crystal Litter

We've recently bought a ScoopFree self cleaning litter box. It is wonderful but we didn't want to keep buying the disposable litter trays for $30 a go so we bought a Forever Litter Tray. Now we need to buy some crystal litter to use with it. [more inside]

No Cat Pee Smell Litter Box - Does it exist?

Okay, sorry for this gross question I am about to lay on you. I clean my cats' litter box on a pretty regular basis, scooping it daily (okay, almost daily) and then washing it down when needed. It is large size. What I am finding is the cat claw scrapes go down to the base and it's like the cat pee seeps down into the actual plastic of the box and just makes the box permanently stinky. I tried litter liners and it was a disaster - they ripped them to shreds and it was just extra mess to clean up. Does there exist like a stainless steel litter box base or that material they make space ships out of or something?

What cat litter doesn't stink up the place even when it's clean?

We need a new litter brand! We have 3 cats and a relatively small space in which they live. The recent heat wave has not helped matters. Ideally the new litter will not stink up the house with odor-covering chemicals. Help? [more inside]

My cat has taken to pooping and peeing all over our flat. Several trips to the vet haven't stopped it. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to stop this?

Corn cat litter question

Last month I switched over to a corn cat litter. (This one) And aside from the kitten occasionally deciding the scattered bits of litter are food, it's going quite well. But how 'flushable' is this litter? [more inside]

My dog loves the litterbox but my cat doesn't.

PetOwneratWit'sEndFilter: my cat is picky about the litter he will use. The dog loves to play in the litter and strew it around the floor. A covered litter box prevents dog from strewing litter all over the floor. The cat won't use the covered litter box. Is there a solution which will please all of us? [more inside]

Where does the litter box go?

Cat owners - where in the house do you keep the litter box? We're getting ready to move into a new home, and are having a heck of a time figuring out where to put it so that its (a) easily accessible by our furry friends, and (b) out of sight, out of mind for any humanoid visitors.

Cat Smells and Odors

PotpourriFilter. As anyone who shares a house with felines soon becomes aware, with cats comes a certain...odor. (Or, as we refer to it in my family, "eau de chat.") Besides the obvious sanitary measures, I'm draining my life savings by investing in deodorizers (which are rarely effective for more than two or three days). Does anyone out there have recommendations for killer potpourri or other scent options, not including candles?
