ORDERED THIS SIFTING LITTERBOX. ALTHOUGH IT WAS VERY WELL MADE, AT 82 THE LITTER SECTION WAS HEAVY FOR ME TO LIFT. CHEWY CREDITED MY ACT. AND IT WENT TO SAFE HAVEN IN WELLS, MAINE.
I almost didn't buy this because so many of the reviews are unfavorable about the poop, etc, getting stuck in the grates... Then I kept reading, THANKFULLY - and someone stated the obvious! The grated part does NOT go on top, it goes in the middle (like the photo and the instructions clearly show). you lift the top pan, pour into the grated pan with 3rd pan under it, then lift the grated pan to let the unused little sift out into that 3rd pan. simply pour the clumps from grated pan into a bag to throw out. Replace in proper order. This saves me a bunch of time and nobody likes scooping individual clumps/poop. I use the Worlds Best Litter with it and it works great.
It was time to replace my Jungle Beast's litter box and I decided to try a sifting style box even though these are geared more towards clumping litters...I use the non-clumping crystal litter. Why did I wait this long to try the sifting box?! It is like a single-step 'scoop and rake' that is far quicker and more efficient than my scooping the solids and raking the litter in a jumbo litter box. Less time scooping and raking, even less dust generated with an already low dust type of litter. Very easy to lift the sifter and not at all heavy since the most solids left in a day are a couple boom-booms. Plus efficient sifting for the rapid evaporation of liquids from the crystals. Highly recommend this box with non-clumping crystal litter.
I thought I would try a three piece sifting litter system. But I forgot why I use the biggest tallest litter box you sell. My cat likes to poop off the side. The sifting part worked great. But the wet stuff sticks to the bottom, so it is not completely without the need to scrape and scoop. So far not great.
I have a big cat, so this is nice for that, the only reason I didn't give it a 5 star is because the litter sticks to it so you cannot sift it so well through the sifter. I did get scoop which helps that, but I seem to have just made more work for myself.
Generously sized pan. Easy to use siffing system. I plan to replace the second cat pan with one of these too.
Not sure why some people are having trouble getting the sifter to work. I use Tidy Cat clumping cat litter and I had no issues. Also the size works great for a larger cat.
If you keep the grate in the middle like it's supposed to be it works fine. It is hard to dump without making a mess as litter will be falling through the sifter while you are pouring. It is VERY difficult to maneuver if you are older like me. Remember you are picking up a full litter box to dump. Lightweight litter would be ideal but that is still to heavy for me. When I was a bit younger I can see how this would be easy enough (aside from the mess dumping it) its also not very deep so if you have a kicker that is another mess you have to deal with. I have given up and gone back to scooping out a regular litter box
This litter pan is sturdy and a nice larger size. There are not holes but longer slits in the holed pan. This is not working with my litter type, as slits are too large. Additionally, some waste goes thru the large slits, making litter cleaning poor.
This litter box works perfectly and sifts the clumps well. It is very easy to use and we love it! 10/10 would recommend
