I made a "Cat Closet" for them, a room of their own. I was tired (sick and tired) of having the litter box out in the open and their food and bowls as well. I took everything out of the former coat closet and the Cat Closet it became. The litter box, food bowls now have a place of their own and we don't have to look at the litter box anymore. (thank the Lord). I had Jeff take the door off and he hung a window treatment in its place. I love that the cats can go in and out and the door isn't in the way anymore.
