When we got PopTart, it had been a really long time since I had owned a cat. Thinking back on owning a cat is kind of like childbirth – you remember the little ball of fur you cuddled with and loved, but you forget the pain that is scooping a litter box. I don’t even remember what it was like scooping Samarai’s litter box, and I was really bad about it with Promise. Actually, I think at that time in my life, when I was going to school full time and working full time, my roommates actually had to do it. They weren’t happy about it.
As I was surfing the five shelves of a thousand different cat litters before we brought PopTart home, I couldn’t figure out what to use, so I got this clumping cat litter that came in a box. I thought it would be great and easy to use, and it was great and easy to use, but the scent blew me out of the house when I opened the box. I have allergies to basically all airbornes and this scent had me sneezing in seconds. It did a good job of covering the odor of the cat box, but I felt so bad every time PopTart went inside his domed cat box because I was just certain he was going to pass out from the smell.
I did a survey on Facebook of some friends who are at owners, and the overwhelming majority said that they used World’s Best Cat Litter™. So I was like, “Yeah, that’s what I’m trying to figure out! What IS the world’s best cat litter?” and they said “World’s Best Cat Litter”. It took a while for me to realize that it was the brand’s actually NAME. Hey, cut me some slack, I have blonde roots.
We bought our first bag of World’s Best at PetSmart, but check their store locator to see where you can purchase it near you. We completely replaced the old litter with the new with no transition period. PopTart was previously a foster cat and he took right to his litter when he came home, so I figured there wouldn’t be an issue, and I was right.
In a litter, I was specifically looking for something that was clumping AND septic safe flushable. We wound up getting a Litter Genie that we absolutely love, but before we found that, we were seriously considering flushable cat litter. It’s just that we have a septic tank and I know that clay litters aren’t septic safe, even if they say they are. World’s Best Cat Litter is made with sustainable corn and is completely septic safe and 99% dust free. The bag looks really small, but there’s a lot of litter in that little bag, and because it uses less product to clump, it lasts a really long time. A small bag really does last a full month with our one cat.
Since we’re done with large bins of litter, we decided to wash out the one that we had and dress it up to hide PopTart’s food, extra food dishes, and any left over litter in. Kyle is a little bit of a nut about wanting the house to look nice, so he picked this wrapping paper out all himself, washed the bin out, and ModPodged the crap out of it. He’s the domestic one, y’all. It just works for us.
I was SO proud to come home and find that my husband had not only made this beautiful bin to hid our cat’s food and extra litter, he had photographed the whole thing with this blog post in mind.
You might wonder why on earth we would even want to make such a thing, but let me tell you. PopTart apparently took lessons from Sarge, our Diabeetus Dogge, and he eats whatever he can get his paws on. It took him very little time to figure out that he could rip into his bag of food and gorge himself on it, so we had to find a way to hide his food so that he couldn’t get to it. We didn’t want to spend more money on enclosed food bins, we have those for the dogs, and we’re looking for ways to reduce waste. This old box happened to be the perfect shape and had a hinged lid that makes it easy to get to the things inside.
And the World’s Best Cat Litter? We genuinely love it. Yeah, it’s not as flowery as some of the other litters, but I know that it’s safe for my kitten, I can flush it down my septic system if need-be, and it does a bang-up job clumping. Not to mention it lasts a really long time so I’m buying less litter. It really is the world’s best cat litter.

Now, to make your own pretty catch-all for your cat’s gear, use any old bin you have in your house, preferably the one your old litter came in. Wash it out, and gather the following supplies:
- Plastic bin, washed & dried
- Sponge Brush
- Wrapping Paper of your choice
How to make a container to hide your cat’s food and/or litter:
- Make sure you wash the bin well. You might have to wash it a few times to get all the smell out, then dry thoroughly.
- Measure bin then your wrapping paper to size.
- Use sponge brush to wipe the ModPodge onto the bin, then apply wrapping paper. Allow to dry 30 min.
- Use sponge brush to apply ModPodge to the outside of the bin to protect the wrapping paper. Depending on where you plan to keep the bin, you may want to use ModPodge’s waterproof glue.
- Allow to dry before using.
