  • In the bathroom, or put it in a hall closet but leave it slightly open. You can also get a covered litter box.

  • I put our litter box in a room that we closed off with a baby gate. Get a gate that has wide enough bars for the kitty to slip through. A good way to tell if it's wide enough is to measure the width of the kitty's whiskers from edge to edge. They actually use them to help them know if they can fit into an opening. Keep in mind though, this kitty will I'd get something with plenty of slip through room.

  • Bathroom....i thought about getting a kitten before i found out i was preg. again...but i decided against it. put it some where your son isnt allowed, he shouldnt be in the bathroom without you anyway...other than that the kitchen/ laundry room.....i wouldnt want it in my kitchen though

  • get one of the covered ones with the carbon filter in it. then if you have to put it in a small enclosed room like a closet, it won't smell.

  • If you have two bedrooms, you could put it in your bedroom and use a hooded litter box. We keep ours in the bedroom. The bathrooms are too small for a litter box. We'd have to step in them to use the shower or toilet. Ick! However in our previous apartment, the bathroom was large enough to keep it in there. Maybe take off one of the cabinet doors and put it under the sink?
