When you are traveling with your cat long distances a litter box is a must have thing to have otherwise you’re going to have a big mess on your hand later on in their carrier. Luckily there are some really nice portable and disposable ones that you can use for traveling.
Why Get A Portable Cat Litter Box?
Cat litter boxes in your home are quite large and bulky and are annoying to bring around when traveling. A portable cat litter box on the other hand is easier to bring a long with you as they can fold for easy storage so they are easier to travel with. Disposable ones on the other hand are just that – ones that you can throw away after your trip.
Types of Portable Litter Boxes
There are two types of litter boxes for travel that you can go with and the one you need depends on your traveling habits.
Fabric: These are the kind that are made of fabric and you can reuse more than once. Best of all they fold and can be stored away when you aren’t using them anymore. These are a good thing to invest in if you travel a lot, want to use them more than once and don’t want to keep buying disposable ones.
Disposable: These are the kind that are used for a certain amount of times and you simply throw them away. These are really good if you don’t really travel that often and just need something for one time use.
Don’t Forget To Get Good Litter
Some of these actually have the litter included but if you are going to get a litter box you should also get really good litter along with the litter box so it minimizes odor. You are going to be in an enclosed space so you are going to smell their waste a lot easier than if you were in your house.
The litter that I always use is the “Ever Clean Everfresh Unscented Clumping Clay Cat Litter (click here for the chewy.com link)Ever Clean Multi-Cat Clumping Cat Litter (click here for the chewy.com link)“. I use this brand because it works the best to remove and block odor the best out of everything that I have ever tried. You can go three weeks and not smell anything. Its crazy how good it works.
