Rating is based on packaging. I've ordered this item a few times due to moving, litter box is a solid item, but the only consistent feedback, issue is how it's packaged. In my humble opinion due to it being so light it gets tossed around like a volleyball. I watched the FedEx driver toss my box up in the air, smile, and drop it, literally, on my porch. I walked out asked why he did that and he just looked at me and said sorry ma'am. The box was dented up, pictures attached, there was only a piece of brown paper in the box. I'm lucky it wasn't cracked, as has happened previously. I highly recommend to literally bubble wrap the litter box for added protection or put FRAGILE on your box to hopefully ensure it is respected a bit more.
I like this litter box because of the filter and the ability to "enclose" the litter smell. I am a converted cat lover...and did not want pet cats at first...so my expectations for a litter box were very high. We have two cats and I'm about to purchase a third one of this litter box for another room in the house. We use a flushable litter to be environmentally conscientious and clean the boxes once a day. These boxes contain the smell well and we keep a litter mat in front and vacuum it once a week. I love the carbon filter feature too. They are easy to clean. The connection of the detachable hood is a little weak, so remember to lift from the base and don't try to lift the box with the handle on the hood top.
The best thing I can say about this is that it is big. However, the latches do not connect properly. Always at least one (usually two) do not catch, so I cannot pick up the box to move it unless I remove the lid. The other, bigger problem is the door, which only swings one way. My cats can go in but they cannot get out. This has led to one of my two cats being hesitant to use the box. I've had to remove the door, so that kind of takes away the 'benefit' of the filter. Cleaning two or three times a day, there's still odor. I would not recommend this box. I feel like I paid extra for features that do not work.
I have 2 cats, one of which tosses litter all over the floor. I needed a covered box, so I purchased this one and it's exactly what I wanted! They aren't lying when they say this is jumbo. It easily contains an entire jug of litter. I was worried that my cats wouldn't use this with the door flap, but there were absolutely no issues for them to figure it out. It's also easy to scoop the waste from he box. Well worth the money!!
I have two boys who are a healthy weight, but one is just larger than an average cat. He makes the other look like a baby. I wanted to make sure they had enough room and get a closed litter box because they live in my office and I wanted to contain the smell and litter. This works perfectly for those reasons. And if we go away for two days, this holds a lot of litter for them. I have two for them and they’re perfect. The reason why it only has 4 stars is because the latches are a pain in the tail to lock sometimes. They’re WAY better than other latches I’ve dealt with on other litter boxes in a sense that I don’t have to worry about them coming undone if I have to carry or move the litter box. The minor issue is that you have to make sure the lord and box line up in a certain way so you can lock all 4 latches. Other than that, great box!
For $40 I thought this litter box would be a 5 star home run. Sadly it was not. The size was exactly what I was looking for but the front flap will not come out enough and has two exposed holes on both sides allowing the smell to come out into the room. The reason I purchased a litter box with a flap on it was to keep the smells out of the room. Would not recommend this other than for the size is perfect!
I've tried so many litter boxes for my male feline friend, and I always end up with urine seeping through the cracks of the box. He always pees in the back and in the same spot, but it was no problem for this litter box! Great odor control and easy to clean. Worth every penny.
We wanted a litter box that had a filter to trap bad odors. This box seemed to fit the bill unfortunately due to a design flaw, gravity holds the flap door permanently open, rendering the filter pointless. Might as well have an open tray. Very disappointed.
I was worried a bit based on some reviews regarding the door. But it works perfectly. The key is to make sure the lid is perfectly clipped to the base and lock it well (four locks). My cats love this little box. strongly recommended.
Our cat had grown to 22lbs and the old litter pan was not working very well. This new jumbo pan has made it a lot easier to keep it cleaned because he is able to fit all the way inside. I should have made this change sooner. Now Micah and Art are both happy.
