How to Keep Your Cat Out of Your Children’s Sandbox

Tips posted on December 17 2015 by

Have you been struggling to keep your cat from mistaking your children’s sandbox for a luxury-sized litter box? It can be frustrating, unsanitary, and a lot of work to replace the sand in your child’s sandbox because of bit of confusion. Here are a few measures that can be taken to prevent your cat out of the sandbox.

Keep the Sandbox Covered

If you permit your kitty to roam outside, then you should invest in a good cover for the kids’ sandbox—and make sure to cover it every time. A covered sandbox will help keep the sand clean and pleasant for playing while keeping your cat and other creatures out. After all, not just YOUR cat might see the sandbox as a good place to go.

Keep the sandbox covered up when the kids aren’t playing in it is a sure way to keep the sand pristine. You can use a tarp that is tacked down securely or a piece of sealed particle board or check out online tutorials for your particular sandbox design.

Keep Your Cat Indoors

The surest way to prevent your cat from using the sandbox as a litter box is to keep your cat indoors. By keeping your cat inside, you can rest assured that your children’s sandbox is safe from your cat’s waste. You can also safely assume that your cat’s lifespan will nearly triple by simply making sure it stays indoors. With far fewer threats to its safety and also fewer opportunities for misadventure, you and your cat can enjoy each other for many years to come, and without any unpleasant incidents involving the sandbox.

The Litter-Robot cleans up after each use, so no matter how many cats you have, the litter is fresh and clean every time.
