5. Solve the litter box dilemma. For cat owners, figuring out where to put the litter box can be a logistical headache. No one wants to know what's going on in there while they're eating or watching TV. A lot of cat owners opt to put the litter box in a laundry room or a guest bathroom, where people don't spend a lot of time. Just keep in mind that it should be in a low-traffic area where your cat can be alone. Keep a broom, plastic baggies, extra litter and a scoop in there for easy cleanup.
