Cleaning litter boxes isn’t fun, but cats’ instinctive use of litter boxes is one of the reasons cats are some of the most popular indoor pets. They use the restroom in one place that you can easily clean and you can place them in a designated area that is just for the kitties. There is a wide range of litter box options available for any of your cat’s toilet needs. Some litter boxes are easy to hide away and designed for a single cat, while others are best for multi-cat households.

Ideally, a litter box is unobtrusive, doesn’t smell bad, and is easily accessible to your cat. Some litter boxes are easier to clean than others. Choosing the right litter box depends on your cat’s preferences, size, the cat litter you use, and the space you have available. Let’s walk through our top selections for the best cat litter boxes available.
