Best Covered Cat Litter Boxes

While cats generally tend to be pretty tidy and self-sufficient, litter boxes can get real messy real fast if you’re not careful. With covered litter boxes, you can trap in some of the smell inside and keep unsightly used litter out of plain sight. Covered litter boxes also give your feline the privacy their looking for when doing their business.
