Small cat litter trays may be preferred for a number of reasons, and these range from having small cats or kittens, needing a travel solution or only have limited space at home.
Corner litter trays
One solution to limited space is a corner litter tray, as these are quite small and make the most of all of the available space in your home. Corner litter trays can fit into all of the nooks and crannies and can also be quite discreet, offering the cat plenty of privacy.
We have reviewed some recommended corner litter trays on a previous post, as this type of tray is set to become more and more popular as people’s lives become busier and modern homes become smaller.
Litter trays for kittens
If you have just bought a kitten into your home, then litter training will be part of introducing her to being part of the family. Although it is sometimes recommended to use a standard sized litter tray for kittens (as they grow quickly), some kittens may just find these trays too big and put them off the idea of the tray.
As basic and small cat litter trays can be quite cheap, then a good way to introduce her to using the litter tray is by using a smaller tray for the first few weeks. This will get your kitten used to using the tray before upgrading to a larger tray.
Although cats don’t always make the best travellers, if you are planning to be away from home for a night or two then this would be another good reason to use a small cat litter tray. A small tray will fit into your luggage and will also be suitable for overnight visits to hotels, friends and family.
Other reasons people may prefer small cat litter trays may be if their cat is convalescing after an operation or if their cat just prefers it!
