Redoing the litter box area

We're you thinking, "Haven't heard from Todd all day, wonder what he's doing"? *grin* Anyway, what I've been doing is playing Wii Sports, taking the outside Christmas lights down, burning trash, vacuuming the living room and making the cat litter box area neater, cleaner, and easier to keep clean.

For the last few days I've been thinking about how we can keep the cats from getting so much litter on the floor every time they use them, like what you see on the right-hand side.

While I was at it I wanted to keep so much from going behind, under the middle, and next to the boxes on both sides, like this

What I did was build a frame to sit on top, which would seal the edges and middle, using this wood and double-sided tape. Was going to use screws, but figured the tape would be easier.

This is before it was put on the boxes. It's upside down and those white strips are the tape

So I vacuumed all the litter under and around the boxes so it would start clean anyway

This is what they look like with the framing on top of them

Do share how that works out! We even tried one of those horrid covered boxes and our cat STILL managed to hurl littler half a metre out the front of it. Nice idea!

Thanks Lee! :-)

I will let you all know how well it works. I did notice this morning that there's still a *litter* litter in front of them, that could've been from just getting out. Need to get a mat to catch the litter on their paws. Was at the store today, but forgot. Maybe next trip :-)
