20170523_131730.jpgMost full time rvers that have pets have dogs. Some of them do have a cat. We are among the latter. Some of you may be thinking about the smell of the litter box in such a confined space or having it being out in the open for anyone to see. We have an enclosed litter box for our cat Samantha. It stays underneath our jack-knife sofa. We have experimented with several kinds of cat litters and we will continue to do so until we find that perfect one. The key to keeping the smell away is just to be sure to clean the box often. We also have found that the litter mats don’t work as well as they claim to at keeping litter from transferring from kitty’s paws. An inexpensive indoor/outdoor grass mat (plastic/astroturf) works really well at trapping the litter as she jumps out of the litter box onto the floor. She doesn’t try to get outside. We got a small harness for cats for her on Amazon and she finds it comfortable. We put a leash on her and take her outside for exercise. We have a carrier for her that looks like a small duffle bag with plenty of places in it for her to look out when we need to put her in the truck to travel somewhere else. She has no problem with living with us in the RV and she is getting used to travelling.

Check out the links below for items such as the harness, carrier, and food/water bowls that can be mounted to your rv floor, and other kitty rv essentials from Amazon.
