Create a Litter Box Privacy Zone with PetFusion

I’m in the middle of a “catification” project in my apartment, and one of the areas I needed to take a good look at and change was the litter box area. Lola and Lexy’s litter box is in the living room. It was previously in a boxed-in corner, and if one of them decided to engage in “litterbox stalking” the other was pretty much trapped. And the tracking! Oh, the tracking! Even though I use a good, low tracking litter, it would still get on my carpet. It was also placed next to a bookcase that I would frequently need something from, and when I had to open it I would have to move the box. We all needed an update!

I’m happy to be partnering with PetFusion to re-do our litterbox situation by creating a Litterbox Privacy Zone.

Create a Litterbox Privacy Zone With PetFusion Litter Products


PetFusion has a fabulous litter line. When you put them all together, your cat will have their own private area to… umm… do their thing. Let’s dive into each product.

Betterbox Non-Stick Litter Box


I had previously been using a semi-covered litter box, and I wondered about switching to an open one. Would the girls kick litter all over the place? The veterinary recommended Betterbox non-stick litter box's dimensions of 22 x 18 x 8" (with a 5" entryway height – which is great for older cats) really helps keep the litter from going all over the place.

The Betterbox is made from ABS plastic, and what I really love about it is the anti-microbial, non-stick coating which reduces sticking up to 70% and assists with odor control. I do not have to repeatedly scrape the bottom of the box to scoop out the clumps, and there is no residue left on the bottom of it. Scooping is so much easier now! I wondered if the non-stick coating would really help with odor control, and I’m happy to say that it does! I stopped using any litter deodorizer for the duration of the review, and I did not smell the box when I walked into my apartment. (And we’ve had some really humid days here in the North East.)

I did a full litter change so I could report on the cleaning process. It was a breeze! The non-stick coating makes it so easy to clean with just some dish soap, water, and air drying. No smell, no lingering odors, no hard scrubbing needed.

QuickScoop Litter Scoop


The QuickSoop Litter Scoop is generously sized and measures 13.2 x 4.8 x 3.2". It sits flush against the bottom of the box for faster scooping and allows for faster sifting. It’s designed to scoop forward to capture the litter so you don’t have to dig down to be able to get everything. It’s larger than the scoops I usually use, but I liked it right away. Probably because it also has a non-stick coating, and the scoop doesn’t get as “gross” as my previous scoop.

ToughGrip Litter Mat


The ToughGrip Litter Mat is available in Large (30 x 23"), which we have, and Extra Large (38 x 26"). It is made from a tough, thick, hygienic silicone; has a tall outer lip; raised ridges; and anti-slip bumps underneath to keep it from sliding. The ToughGrip mat is also anti-microbial as well as water and stain resistant. 

It’s super easy to clean with my hand vacuum and wipes down easily.  (It also stands up to my larger vaccuum.) I like the side spout that makes pouring unused litter back into the box very easy without it getting all over the floor.

Is it good at trapping litter? It is!

There is a lot less on the floor and less tracking on my new carpet. 


Portable Cat Litter Disposal


I had something like this product before and didn’t really like it. I was pretty much resigned to the fact that I’d never use something similar again, but the Portable Cat Litter Disposal has changed my mind. The locking handle, silicone gasket, and non-toxic charcoal cat litter deodorizer (which lasts up to six months) keeps any odors at bay. I don’t even know there is used litter in it!

This fixed waste receptacle makes daily (or more frequent!) scooping easier because you can dispose of the waste right next to the litter box easily and without a mess. The disposal bin comes with a complimentary roll of biodegradable, compostable bags, but it easily accommodates any bag you want to use with the clips on the sides of the removable inner pail. (The included bags can hold up to 2 weeks of waste.) The dimensions are16.7" tall x 9.5 x 9.5 and it fits easily next to the litter box. (Refills for both the charcoal filter and biodegradable bags are available.)

You can easily carry a full pail to the garbage can by the handle. No mess and no fuss.... litter disposal at it's easiest. 


ModestCat Litterbox Privacy Screen


The Pièce De Résistance of our new privacy zone is the Modestcat Litterbox Privacy Screen, and this is my favorite in the collection. This is what stylishly separates the litter box area from the rest of the room. You’re probably wondering “does my cat really need a privacy screen?” Yes, they do, and so do you!

This gorgeous 3-panel room divider stands 3 feet tall and is 4 feet long. The two-way hinges are flexible, allowing for easy configurability 
(Z-shape or U-shape) to fit your space  The semi-transparent panels are scratch-proof, easy to clean, and let in enough light so your cat doesn’t feel trapped. The best part for us? It allows for multiple entry and exit points so neither of the girls is trapped when her sister feels like stalking.

The privacy screen effortlessly conceals the litter box, gives your cat privacy and personal space, and helps reduce the spread of litter.

At first I thought our new privacy zone was a little awkward, but I quickly got used to it. I rarely go into the bookcase next to it, and if I have to all I have to do is move the screen and I have plenty of room. It is very effective at reducing the spread of litter. There is so much less tracking on my new carpet, which makes me ecstatic!

You don't even know there's a litter box back there! 


If you're wondering if your cats will knock it over, Lola and Lexy haven't. It's been up close to two weeks (as I write this), and there have been no problems. Even the "after dinner zoomies" were no match for it. 


Putting it all Together





After I shot the video I moved the litter mat further toward the front of the box because I didn't need as much in the back. The walls of the box are high enough to prevent a big mess back there. Moving it up helps cut down on tracking even more. 

Here's our final setup:

The Final Verdict


I give the PetFusion litter line a definite two thumbs up. And I'm sure I can speak on Lola and Lexy's behalf and say they each give it four paws up. They accepted the new layout right away, and I think they like the new litter box better than our previous one. They have plenty of room to move around in it, they can dig to their hearts' content, and there is a fast and easy escape if one of them gets a little too rambunctious and wants to get too close to her sister when she's using the facilities. (Yes, Lola, I'm talking about you!) 

All of the products are of high quality, are very well made, and come with a 12-month warranty for any issue resulting from a manufacturer defect.

When you live in an apartment, you make use of every inch of available space and you do the best with what you've got. Lola, Lexy, and I dream of the day when we have a larger home and they have an entire room for themselves. Until then, I created a functional, appropriate litter box zone for Lola and Lexy while keeping my living room looking stylish. The new set up is easier for all of us to access, is comfortable for the girls, and keeps our environment neater. It's a win for all of us girls here at the White house! I highly recommend the PetFusion litter line to all cat parents.

  12. The privacy screen is a really cool idea! I don't have a cat, but if I did I'd totally be interested in a set up like that. What a nice way to give your pet some privacy, while also blocking the litter box from sight for the people.

  13. Great review! I am definitely interested in some of these items.

  14. The size of a litterbox does seem to be an important feature. I know that mom's cats stopped wanting to use theirs as they outgrew it.

  15. This is a marvellous set up and I love the disposal option. It waves so much trouble and effort. The litter try is substantial and I love the high sides too.

    This is a fabulous option for indoor cat owners.

  16. I think the litter box is one of the things that keeps me from wanting a cat. But I put a bag over my hand and pick up dog poop. No, it doesn't make sense. :-D

  17. This is awesome! My mom has two cats and she’s always trying to work on the litter box area. I will have to pass your blog along to her!

  18. I love that screen, what a brilliant idea. Great review and if I had a cat I would for definite invest in this

  19. We have two bathrooms - one near the front door in a little alcove under thw stairs, and one in the utility room. But We still manage to get litter on Our Paws and drag it all over the place.

  20. Briliant mat! Thank you for the review, your cat is so cute!

  21. That is a lovely new bathroom, thanks for the tips!

  22. The litter mat looks great! We have always had a problem with our cats tracking. I have a separate litter closet area that only the cats can access (or our dogs will enjoy a treat) but we still find litter randomly around the house lol

    ReplyDelete
  23. Wow! What a great cool potty space! Every one deserves a little privacy!

    ReplyDelete
  24. It looks like a great set up! Your new carpet is really pretty, I'm glad that you don't have a problem with litter tracking.

  25. I would love to test out that box! I love how big it is. Litter mats are a no go here though - every time I’ve tried one, Musette decides that it’s the perfect place to pee. I use a pelleted litter so thankfully they don’t track too much. I have boxes everywhere since I have a large furry family. I wish I thought the panels would work here. I can’t use covered boxes and hiding them would be great. But I know they would just get knocked over. Wildest cats live here lol

  26. What a nice setup!!! I plan on rearranging the girls' litter box area once I get this home office cleaned out!
