Cat Litter Box
OK, I know this is not technically a kitchen question, but...
We decided to remodel the mudroom/pantry off the kitchen at the same time. This will involve changing our full bath (bathroom with a stand-up shower) into a Powder Room by eliminating the shower stall, and using the extra room for a pantry. The cat boxes are in that shower stall now. If we eliminate it, where can we put them?
KD said he could make something under the sink cabinet for them in the bathroom. But I can't imagine the stench in there and trying to clean it. As it is, the poor cats "miss" an awful lot. A friend suggested putting a pet door in the basement door and relocating the whole kit and kaboodle to the basement. But we have no toilet down there, how in the world would I empty it daily with no toilet? Suggestions for where to put the litter box so that it isn't smelly, isn't gross, is cleanable, and ideally, so it doesn't track litter all over the room ???? Thanks.
