We are in the process of redoing all of our floors and it’s such a big job. At the moment we are doing all of our stairs and the lower floor. This means the litter had to be moved temporarily. The litter was moved to a different floor in a different area of the house. First I was worried they would not find the litter and continue to use the usual area and secondly I was concerned about odors. Our cats are quite perceptive and knew where the litter was move to and used it, even our older cat. The Litter Getter was fabulous in keeping odors from permeating throughout the house.
