On my pet sitting travels, I stumbled across an awesome invention at my kitty client’s house! They had made a cat litter genie out of an empty cat litter bucket with the snap-on lid. I was in awe, and immediately wished I was still using traditional litter so I could make one for my house!
The next time you need to buy litter, purchase the big square container that has the snap-on lid. The one used in this tutorial is from Tidy Cat, but other companies have this type of container as well. Follow these simple steps below to make one for free!
Step 1: If your container is not empty, transfer the rest of the clean litter to the old container for storage.
Step 2: Grab an old plastic grocery bag or a smaller sized trash bag that’s big enough to fit nicely inside the container. If the bag doesn’t for snugly over the lip, tape it down or use a giant rubber band to keep it in place.
Step 3: Scoop your litter pan and put the contents into your new genie. Close the lid and store beside your pan or wherever works best in your home.
There you have it! Now at this point you can decide to craft it up a bit. Feel free to paint and bedazzle it to match the area it’s stored in. You shouldn’t be able to smell anything, but you can stick a small odor absorber to the top of the lid for extra protection. Let me know what you think in the comments. Happy Scooping!
