Litter Box

OK those of you travelling in a Jayco Melbourne Class C, where do you put the cat's litter box? (Please no snide remarks if possible

many years ago... The cat would travel in it's carrier while on the road... once at camp and parked, the litter box went in the drivers side floorboard - the cat carrier sat on the drivers seat so it was close by... Once the main door was secured, the cat was free to roam the class c.

Having it easy to clean/dispose of by opening the drivers door... worked out.

We put ours in a cardboard box in the shower. The box prevents any liter from going down the drain. It can be a pain to use the shower but most of the time we use the bath house for a shower.

We always used the camp ground shower, so the shower in the motor home was the obvious spot. Worked out great....

Great idea. I'll give it a shot today! Thanks

X2... with some some modification.

In the TT, we always kept the litter box in the bathtub. The high sides of the bathtub prevented, very little, if any, litter from finding its way beyond the tub. When the tub was needed by us, then we'd temporarily relocate the litter box outside the bathroom, placing it on a throw rug to catch any tracked or tossed out litter.

When traveling, we used a 3' x 2' Boots & Barkley vinyl, folding cat carrier, purchased in Target. The carrier occupied about 2/3 of the back seat floor in the GMC HD-2500 crew cab. It was roomy enough to accommodate a small litter box, food & water and, of course, the kitty.

The carrier had a two zipper door. One night, we learned that the door wasn't escape-proof when our cat figured out that if she pushed her head against the two closed zippers, she could them to move open enough to get a paw through the opening and, from there, enlarge the opening until it was large enough to get out. Imagine the heart attack we about had when a 13 pound cat suddenly came plopping into the front seat of the pitch dark truck. MEOW!

After that episode, the DW squelched any repeat performances by tying the zippers together using a twisty-tie from a bread wrapper.
