Hide the litter tray under a simple side table by covering it with a curtain. Simply loop a piece of material beneath the table top and allow it to hang down. You can even create a little entrance by hooking part of it open.

Play with the design

Fun playpens like this are always available for pets online.
Although the sheltered space underneath is often used as a bedding area, you can easily add a litter tray.

Make a little entrance in the base of a piece of furniture such as this laundry basket to camouflage its real purpose. Your bathroom is also a good place to hide a tray from guests and becomes the cat's own en suite.
