Hello everyone on Katzenworld,

The second thing I wanted to do was to get the HOL box and make a litter box holder of it to reduce the amount of litter lying around everywhere. The HOL box is a simple storage box and can be found in two sizes. I don’t really have that much room so I decided to go for the small one. Again the boys were everywhere and even helped with unpacking the box. After assembling (that was pretty easy as well) I decided where the cats should enter the box and used a jig saw to make the hole (I had to lock the cat’s into another room for their own security for this step). I sanded of the edges and used the VARIERA drawer mat to lay out the interior of the box. This as well seemed to be accepted very well 🙂

    1. I thought so, too! Some people even make a hole in the lid and let the cats enter the box from the top, which leaves more space for the litter box inside 🙂 I have a second box and I will most likely do that with that one.

  1. Reblogged this on Sari's Corner and commented:
    The second part of my guest post about DIY for cats on Katzenworld.co.uk is online now. Again the post is also available in German. The Link can be found in the post! Head over there and have a look if you are interested!

  2. What a clever idea! Looks nice, surely gets adequate airing, controls stray litter, gives the cats a bit of privacy (with the ability to see what’s happening outside the box, too — the best of both worlds!), is attractive, and could be capped with a removable cushion to give kitties an extra high spot to lounge. The only thing missing: someone to dig out the waste instead of me! Ha!

    1. Haha… that last sentence made me laugh! Thank you I am pretty satisfied with it as well and I indeed put something on top and the cats just love to be up there while I am busy getting myself presentable for yet another day 🙂

  3. Again, I don’t have an engineering degree and am not a DIYer. Neither is Ms. Cali. It is a very different and interesting looking product!

  4. That is a nice idea, I think the cats would like that because they can see around them and not feel trapped.

      1. Yes, all over the country. Here in Ottawa we have the biggest, (and I mean BIG…) in all Canada. Well, it may be “fairly easy” to make but my specialty is cooking. Just come over anytime for a lovely golden Tarte Tatin…
        Sarina, ( what a beautiful name!) you are invited too. I will put both of you to work….

      2. Oh… that sounds so great! Unfortunately Canada is a whole ocean away 🙁 It is actually one of my long term dreams to come over and visit this country… We will see how and when that will happen. Until then I am sorry but I think you will have to do either with out them or you have to do them yourself. And, yes I am pretty fond of my name as well 😉
