We do the same, except we keep it next to where the dining room table is stored (or under it, if its set up). For weekend trips we don't bother cleaning it, but we'll usually clean/change the litter once or twice during a longer trip.

We got an enclosed litter box and a mat for in front of it. He still gets litter outside the box/mat area, but not much, and it vacuums up easily.

Yeah. I love traveling with our cat - he's too much fun to leave home. And he has food allergies, so we either have to kennel him or get someone to stay at our house if we're going away for more than overnight.

This subject is the one probably the highest concern we have as we prepare to become full-timers. With two Chihuahuas (one who will litter box dive for nuggets) and a 17 year old Siamese cat we need a solution that keeps the AS from smelling like a little box and keeps the litter box diver out of the box.

We have a FC 25FB. Right now that plan is to commit one of the storage compartments to the little box and cut access hole between inside and the compartment with cat door on the inside. I’ll be doing this in the next few weeks and post pictures as we go along. Hoping this works as moving the cat box around the cabin is really not a good long term option. We will see...

Is there any chance that your cat would use a top entrance litter box? That would take care of your little diver. My little Chi is guilty of that at times but he's also trained to the box so I don't have the option of using the top entrance else I'd be blocking his access too.

For what it's worth, my solution was to put the litter box in the shower. My 2017 International 27FB has a glass shower door that my cat can't open, so I cut an access hole in the bedroom/shower wall. The hole is six inches in diameter, and I placed a 6" plastic marine deck plate (basically a trim ring with a screw-in cover) on each side. This way my cat has easy access, but my friend's dog can't get to the pan.

Any smells stay inside the shower stall, and can be sucked out the top by its exhaust fan. In normal use I place the deck plate's cover over the drain so that no litter can go near it. I use clumping litter, and I don't want that stuff fouling my tank or dump valve.

When it's time to shower, I screw the deck plate's cover into place in the shower wall and lift out the litter pan. A small dustpan and brush take care of stray litter. (I also have a wire-mesh drain insert that catches hair and lint.)

This system has been working well for over a year. The cat likes it, and my friend with the super-sensitive nose no longer complains about smells. :-)

Very good idea—thank you. However we have twin bed configuration so no side access to the shower low enough for that to work.

We had thought about a top entrance but with limited floor space we didn’t want to be tripping on a little box or smell it in anyway. When our cat poops the whole neighborhood knows it so getting it outside the living space is important to us.
