Are plastic garbage bags acceptable for use as liners in my cat’s litter box?

Unfortunately, plastic garbage bags do not make appropriate liners and can create a host of problems that could lead to litter box aversion. Problems arise when ill-fitting garbage bags move or create folds that can result in pools of foul-smelling urine. A cat’s nails also snag easily or become stuck, further creating an unpleasant association with the box that could potentially redirect your cat to eliminate in inappropriate places. Cleanup would also be quite unpleasant for cat parents if the bag is riddled with holes. At Modkat, we offer durable tarp liners that allow a cat’s nails to glide, are rip-resistant and make cleanup a breeze.
