If you’re a cat person, you get it. Cats are awesome. They’re cuddly, adorably cranky, have minds of their own, and their reaction to a simple paper sack can entertain you for days.

I mean, they’re truly the cat’s pajamas.

But with all the fabulous things a feline can bring into your life, there’s one aspect about kitties that really stinks — the litter box.

It’s the worst! Yet it’s a small price to pay if you love having a cat climb and pounce around your house.

But what if you could have your cake and eat it too? What if you could have a litter box that was cleverly disguised and blocks the odor…right in the middle of your living room! Wouldn’t that be purr-fect?

One Reddit user, Oddly_Specific, did just that. She came up with a brilliant solution to kitty pollution…

The first thing she needed was a secondhand dresser. One was found at a recycling center for $45. Next, the drawers were removed.
