# 5 DIY Top Entry Cat Litter Box For Under $5 Dollars!
This DIY top entry litter box is the cat\'s meow! It\'s roomy and allows for more privacy for your cat to do its business. With this top entry box there will be less litter tracking which means a cleaner floor. It is completely enclosed on four sides which means no more splattering for those cats that like to paw around in their litter boxes and for those who can\'t always seem to keep their butt inside the litter box. With the tight lid and top entry, there is less chance of crawling babies and dogs getting in and playing with kitty-poo. This box also fits large 30 gallon trash bags which can be used as a liner for clean and easy disposal of cat waste. Standard litter liners can cost as much as 50 cents, or even a dollar and up, but regular trash bags will range around 15 cents and up, and one box can last nearly a whole year (depending on how often you change out your cat litter).
