Cat Litter Box Barre VT

RVing with cats is a unique and challenging experience. These are tips to consider before taking your cat RVing. The issue of where to keep a cat litter box in an RV is often so controversial and challenging – it frequently results in violent arguments among otherwise mild-mannered RVers. In fact, I was tempted to side-step this issue altogether. However, unless you can train your cat to use the toilet, cat litter boxes are an unavoidable component of RVing with felines.

RVing with Cats – A Primer


By Julee Meltzer

During the last few months, we have received a number of requests regarding information and advice on the subject of RVing with cats. Since there is very little likelihood of a book being published on the topic of RVing with cats, I’ve put together a brief primer on this dubious practice.

Let me start out by stating that RVing with cats is nothing like RVing with dogs. Practically every RVer takes their dog with them these days. As a result, there are books on the subject and they even show a dog in one of those slick “Go RVing” ads seen on TV.

Furthermore, RVing with cats is often so unpredictable and weird – you’ll probably wonder why anyone would consider traveling with them in the first place. Our first excuse is that we’re suckers for strays. In other words, all of our cats were originally homeless. Our second excuse is that we secretly like cats but don’t quote me on that. At any rate, here’s what I know so far.

Step One – Getting Your Cats Used to the RV


If your cat is new to RVing, you’ll need to get them accustomed to your RV. This is normally a simple task with a dog but with cats, you’re up against 30 million years of psychic baggage. In a nutshell, all cats begin with the assumption that every RV is filled with dangerous forces that have to be found and eliminated. It doesn’t matter whether you travel in a refurbished 6-foot trailer or a brand new million dollar luxury motorhome – all RVs contain dangerous forces that must be exorcised. These typically include evil spirits, invisible aliens, cat-eating monsters, shape-shifting dogs, cat-sucking vacuum cleaners, silent predators, and exploding mice. Hence, when a cat first enters an RV, they will invariably perform a room-by-room search to rid the RV of these treacherous forces. If you have more than one cat, you may even hear them shout out “clear” as they declare each section safe. It takes most cats at least 24 hours to purge an RV of all its embedded demons. For reasons that aren’t entirely clear, older Airstreams seem to take a little longer.

Resolving the Cat Box Dilemma


The issue of where to keep a cat litter box in an RV is often so controversial and challenging – it frequently results in violent arguments among otherwise mild-mannered RVers. In fact, I was tempted to side-step this issue altogether. However, unless you can train your cat to use the toilet, cat litter boxes are an unavoidable component of RVing with felines.

Based on a cursory review of online discussion boards, it appears that a good number of RVers keep their cat litter box in the shower (or bathtub). We’ve tried it and can testify that this particular option has some advantages as well as a few shortcomings. The good news is that the litter box is generally out of the way. Plus, when you want to do a thorough cleaning, you simply remove the litter box, vacuum up the stray litter and run the water to wash away any res...
