We bought four of these boxes for our three cats, as one is getting old enough that jumping into our deep litter boxes could become challenging. The litter shield isn't easy to secure to the litter box, if it does at all, so ours are just set on top. A rowdy cat might knock it off. Other reviews mentioned the grooves at the bottom of the litter box, which do collect pee and present a challenge to clean. If the box is maintained well, however, it doesn't appear to be a big problem and will probably encourage us to empty the entire box and replace the litter more often, if litter becomes too difficult to scoop out. The included scoop is fine.
The sides are just what was needed, but the bottom of the pan not being totally flat presents issues when cleaning clumping litter. The 2 front corners collect the urine/litter and it's like cement to remove. Then there's an inch-wide lower area around the entire pan that makes it "not so easy" to complain. Whoever designed it must not have cats! Just make it a flat bottom with corners that easy to clean, not dig out.
Really like this box. Slippery coating makes cleaning easy. The only down side is that the bottom is not flat. There are "channels" that run from front to back along the sides. If you put sufficient litter (2"+) in the box it does not present a problem. If the litter is allowed to get low, however, I imagine that cleaning would be a bit more challenging. The side are high enough to prevent my girls from missing the box and they also do a good job of keeping the litter in the box. Overall, I'm really pleased with my purchase and would buy it again.
I have 2 cats who feel like they have to dig to China in order to leave their deposit in the litter box. I was hoping this would be high enough to catch the flying litter and it is! I appreciated the scoop and box that came with it. I'll be ordering more of these.
I went through extensive research to find a good kitty litter box that would not break the bank, and this si the perfect set up. Is not too big or too small and love the fact it has high walls around it so the kitty litter does not fall all over the floor. Comes with its own scooper and little box fo put it in. My Persian cat loves it and instantly used it with no issues and when she tries to clean by pushing the sand everywhere it stays in. Love it!
Good at preventing litter scatter. Assembled easily. Nice that the scoop holster clips on to the rim of the litter box.
The upper sidewall to box connection does not keep urine in the box! It pass out between connection and then to the floor. This is a design defect.
Happy to have a new box and this one was very affordable. The opening and the raised sides are perfect. the downside is that the raised sides piece does not click into place, it just rests on top, so it can easily get knocked askew.
Purchased 2 of theses litter boxes to replace the old ones. The cats love them & use them regularly! Highly recommended
My cats and I love this litter box. The sides keep the litter in while they are kicking it around. The scoop and container are great. I clean the litter box and put the scoop back in its holder.
