We used to keep it in the porch but is the bathroom ok?

We've always had ours in the bathroom. Seems the most logical place really, it's where all the pee and poo goes! grin

Why would it not be? Providing there aren't long periods when the door is shut when someone else is using the bathroom of course.

I would say it's fine, (I have one in the bedroom at the moment blush)

You might want to leave one down in the old area for a bit, in case kitty has other ideas.

Thanks everyone! I think it's because we have a bath in there? Bonkers I know!
Porch is only next to the bathroom so shouldn't take her long.
It just means it's out the way of toddler and gives us room in the porch.
Thanks again!

It's fine but you will need to keep the door open of course and as a pp mentions, if the bathroom is occupied for long periods of time your cat won't have access...

I wouldn't contemplate having a litter tray in my bathrooms. If I had to have one, it would be in the utility room downstairs. Failing this, it would be as close to a downstairs back door as I could get it

However I appreciate not everyone has a utility room. But just because I wouldn't do it doesn't mean that you shouldn't.

I have mine in a recess in the dining room which I never use. It would be in the bathroom but the bathroom is too tiny.

Wish I could keep mine there. It has to go in the kitchen!

We keep ours in the bathroom, it's the logical place to me (if you've got room of course). DH has just finished replacing our bathroom and designed it with space for the litter tray!

We have one in the downstairs wet room ( extra large loo room) and until recently, one on the landing...not ideal but our elderly Portia kept peeing there so we had to!

Mine used to be in the kitchen by the back door but moved it into the bathroom as for some strange reason my clumsy cat ended up tipping it over confused so it's been put in a corner inbetween the toilet, wall and sink!! Un-tippable nowgrin

Mine is in the downstairs toilet, it fits in nicely between the toilet and the wall. Catface only ‘uses’ it occasionally to go in and kick the litter out all over the floor when I’ve upset him somehow- he much prefers to use the flowerbed in the back garden (I should be thankful that at least he’s only going in MY garden as far as I know 😳!)
