One of the worst problems with cat roommates is the litter box. It is a stinky thing that everyone detests. I have found that the clumping/scooping litter makes it easier for me (the cats don't really care). But the real problem is with the box. I have tried a number of them over the years.
Of the regular old fashioned litter boxes, I like the covered ones the best. Keeps a wee bit of the stench contained and it keeps most dogs out, which is always a good thing. I also like a larger box. I tend to have cats who are larger than average and I like them to be able to turn around in there.
I also like to have the box up on a small table with something solid to help them jump up to it. This is because of my back. It takes a bit more floor space, but it is worth it in my opinion.
A few years ago I tried a new box that you rolled over to collect cat clumps in a built-in drawer. Then the drawer slid out and the stuff could be dumped in the trash. It worked very well except that it wreaked havoc with my back. If I could have put it up on a table and secured it some way, it might have been ok. But I did not think of that at the time. Hence, I am back to the covered large size on a the table in the utility room.
