Why Even Use Cat Litter Box Liners?

Cleaning the litter box is one of those chores as a cat owner that has to be done. Can we make changing the cat litter easier?

Using a cat litter box liner solves the problem of the cat’s waste being stuck to the bottom of the box. No more scooping along the bottom of the litter box.

The whole litter liner, litter and all is tossed away or the litter is scooped as normal and then litter and bag disposed of when necessary.
But…

Not everyone likes litter box liners because they can tear and move about and fall back into the box.

The solution is to get a liner that has elastic around the edge.

The liner needs to be thick enough to withstand some clawing or scratching.

The elastic is around the edges of the cat litter liner, and that keeps the liners in place.

Litter box liners can sometimes to scrunch up when the cat starts digging in the litter.

Even if the sides of liners (without elastic edges) are over the edge of the box, once the litter is added, the liners can frustratingly fall back into the box. Grrr

Elastic litter liners fit right over the edge of the box and, with the added advantage of being secured by elastic, they are less likely to move about.

The elastic eliminates the problem of the liner falling back into the box when the litter is poured in. You still need to be careful about pouring the litter in to the box.

Avoid dumping the litter into the box, as the force of the litter being dumped may still cause the liner to pop off from the box.

Pour the litter with some control and keep an eye on the liner.

Using a liner in the litter box makes the job of cleaning up faster, cleaner and more efficient. Read about the different types of liners and how they work.
