It’s Purrrrrrfect! Sadly, still too “advanced” for Feta – it’s hard for her because she can’t bend her leg 🙁 This is literally my goal of our PT exercises, though – get her able to be mobile enough to use a normal-ish litterbox like this! For now, all the sides have to be short so she can pull herself in with her leg sticking straight out way-confused

I have one more suggestion then;) You already have the floor protector—put a pee pad on the floor protector then add litter directly on both pee pad and floor protector. Bless Feta’s heart for even making the effort! Really she is trooper! Charliebear made the suggestion in another forum of just adding a pee pad and litter on top. I think thats a great idea! If what your doings woking just stick with that! 

Give Feta extra treats & chin & ear scratches from us!heart

I finally went ahead and made a new post with some of the improvements we’ve been making to our DIY cardboard litterbox method –

Litterbox Mods for Severely Disabled Kitties

It’s pretty much impossible to do anything “flat” with Feta, since she is a SERIOUS digger, and will shred something like a pee pad in no time flat! (Even if it’s outside of the box being used as a litter mat!) I wish we could, though – would make my life so much easier!

I think the moral of the story is that every kitty is different, and we just have to trial and error until we figure out what works for each individual >< Not a fun process, I have to say, but I hope by sharing what we’re doing some of these tricks may help other people and kitties struggling with similar issues!
