In this project,I will show you how to convert a cardboard moving box into a disposable and foldable cat litter box, to use when you are traveling with your cat, thus saving luggage space in your car and travel bags.
Step 1: Materials and Tools
Cardboard moving box.
A pointy screwdriver ( used to punch holes in wood before putting screws in ).
Step 2: The Design Part I
1- Draw 2 lines on all the box sides like in the first photo.
B= 5 cm
A= 1/2 of the remaining distance (2A had to be < the width of the box, otherwise when you fold it it wont fold in all the way)
Once done, press the pin pointed screw driver along the lines to create a bend line.you ll need to do that on the inside too.
2- Draw a wide enough circle on the front side for your cat to go through, then cut it out with the precision cutter.
Step 3: The Design Part II
1-Cut the front and rear sides out with the cutter, and place them aside.
2-Tape the bottom and top sides with the masking tape.
Step 4: Assembly
Super glue the front and rear sides to the box.
Cut out 2 small banana shapes each around 4 cm wide and glue them on the doors.These will serve as door stops.
Step 5: Last Step
Cut out a small rectangle in the rear side ( serves as ventilation ).
Now that everything is assembled, push the doors upwards, then fold the box downwards like in the second photo until it is fully folded.
Tape it around to keep it folded.
To use it, simply unfold it, pull the doors downwards, then place around 2-3 kg of litter in it and introduce it to your cat :).
