If you have an indoor cat, you have a litter box. And changing the kitty litter frequently may keep odors at bay, but finding a suitable place to keep the box itself is another problem entirely, especially if you live in a home with little square footage.
However, with a little creativity and ingenuity, you can easily conceal your cat's litter box, or even transform it into a stylish part of your home.

Blogger Amy Walton, a self-proclaimed "crazy cat lady," shares her home with three cats, but her furry friends' presence doesn't detract from her home's decor. Using only a table, a curtain panel and a spring curtain rod, she created an adorable way to hide the litter box.

Lesley Clavijo built this cat center from old porch boards, and it not only serves as an attractive way to conceal the litter box, but it also keeps all of the cats' items organized. And of course, it provides them with a place to escape from the dog.

When blogger Mary Ostyn found herself raising both kittens and toddlers simultaneously, she needed a place to store the litter box away from grabby hands. So her husband cut a hole in the wall under the stairs that led into the under-stairs closet, and her kittens had a safe place to do their business — and hide from the children.
