    whatever you do use wood pellets, these things are great. I been keeping indoors cat for years and use regular kitty litter and I never get used to the odor. But i recently bought wodeen pellets and they fricking magical, no smell at I only get a whiff of cat piss and shit when I'm cleaning the litter box.

    There are closed litter boxes and fragrances to try to control the smell but your apartment is too small for a cat and it will smell anyway, I would recommend you to get something else

    You can get litrerboxes that are covered, are top-down entry, etc. There's a big variety and some are specifically made to mitigate smell. So long as you take out the shit and piss every day and do a weekly or bi-weekly deep clean, there reallt shouldn't be a smell.
    The bigger issue is size. The regular litter trays you see in pet shops are actually way too small. But, the biggest one you could find might not be covered or odour-mitigating.
    ALSO if you adopt an older cat or when the cat you have gets older, arthritis may stop them from effectively using a big litter box, so you'd have to upgrade to a fricking xxxl shitbox so they don't piss on your walls because squatting becomes painful. Speaking from experience.

    Good luck.

    Why is putting the litter box in the bathroom next to the toilet not an option? My cat was fine with it when I lived in a one bed/bath apartment.

      My bathroom is tiny. The toilet is wedged between the wall and the sink. No room to do what you do. My only option would be maybe to keep it in the bath tub and remove it when I shower.

              Cat spreads litter anyways, they aren't people, they don't wipe their feet. They will track shit across the whole house until they feel cozy enough to lick it off.
              >Every other day
              The litterbox reeks immediately after use and MUST be cleaned immediately after use. Every other day is doggay turd yard tier, no matter how carefully you scoop. The cat will stir up the sand anyways.
              >Full clean every month or so
              Even doing this every week you will notice a smell when you get back home. You need a litterbox liner and should be changing it every few days. If you don't want to waste litter just keep it in a temp bucket but keep in mind, any litter that has been used is contaminated and does smell.
              >2 cats
              I have one and can still smell it when the litter shit is in the basement and still step in litter at the TOP of the stairs. Carpeted stairs.

                and it basically has solved the problem of litter being tracked anywhere. My cat only tracked shit when she was a small kitten and if I saw her step in it I would bring her to the sink and just clean her myself. Eventually she stopped stepping/sitting in it.
                >The litterbox reeks immediately after use and MUST be cleaned immediately after use.
                This is the most important part of controlling the smell OP. Flushable litter helps with this. I scoop into the toilet immediately.
                >>Full clean every month or so
                Must be done AT LEAST weekly. I don't use a liner but I just put the box through the dishwasher by itself. Scrub it hard with harsh chemicals if you don't have one.

                You know what a dishwasher does right? It cleans dishes. It gets to 150+ Fahrenheit which is more than enough to totally sanitize any trace amounts of cat pee and poo. It cleans and disinfects it way better than I could by hand. I also clean my dishwasher regularly.

                Do you know why dishwashers themselves need cleaned? Because they are sterilization devices. Shit builds up in the nooks and crannies. Lazy, gross homosexual. Please show me your cat so I know if I see that cat I know not to eat there.

                here is how you cat:
                SCOOP LITTERBOX ONCE A DAY OR MORE
                USE A LITTERBOX LINER
                CHANGE IT AT LEAST EVERY 3 DAYS
                STOP REUSING THE LITTER AFTER A WEEK
                BLEACH CLEAN LITTERBOX ONCE EVERY ONE OR TWO WEEKS DEPENDING ON CONDITION
                LITTERBOXES DO NOT GO IN KITCHENS BEDROOMS LIVING ROOMS CLOSETS DINING ROOMS OR ENTRYWAYS, THEY GO IN THE BASEMENT OR IN AN OUTDOOR ENCLOSURE

                Anyone who disagrees with any of this is DISGUSTING. Period. You are fricking vile. Cats are meant to be clean animals, but clearly that condition isn't contagious. You live in a house of shit and piss. The cat would be cleaner living in a literal dump.

                I trimmed raw chicken with a kitchen knife today. Wanna know what I did to clean it? I put it in the dishwasher. That's it. Nothing else. And I would rather lick cat shit than raw chicken.

                >third worlder would rather lick cat shit (which is never fine) than eat raw meat (which is fine if it's freshly killed and you eat around the worms and cysts if present)

                My homie unless you have an autoclave you can't sterilize shit. Dishwashers kill 99.99 percent of bacteria and germs. You think your bleach soak is gonna sterilize the litterbox? Good luck. Scrub the litter pan, then dishwasher, then use it again. It's fine. It's not a big deal. It gets clean.

          If a rat can be happy going in and out of a cage, and a dog can he happy in a hobo's cardboard box, as long as they can leave and go places with you, then so can a cat.

          The only stipulation is the animal must leave the apartment with you a few times every day. WITH you. Not roaming alone. Roaming pets are wild animals like raccoons and foxes and are defacto food for each other and all other animals.

            It gets literally buried in their paws, it will never get all of it

            That's why the best thing you can actually do is build a catio and put the litterbox there. With any luck, between hanging out in the catio and the added distance walking across turf will clean them out better. As a plus your cat can go outside without dying 16 years too early.

        Yes, kitty litter will smell. It will either smell like fresh litter or dirty litter. Make sure to change it and clean it thoroughly if you have guests coming over. Covered litter boxes are a meme, best course of action is to scoop immediately.
