I have a good kitty who does use the box which is very large however, she gets in a corner and raises just slightly high enough to eliminate outside. The urine goes under the box and "ferments". The high sides stops the outside mishaps and the 80% coverage of the top stops the kick out of the silicone litter that is invisible until you step on it and crunch - YUK! Add an adequate mat and life is so much better. My gal is 15 y/o and didn't hesitate to jump in. Will buy another soon.
I would definitely recommend getting this large stainless steel litter box. Easy to clean, doesn't hold bacteria or odor. One thing I noticed though, that Dr. Elseys Ultra cat litter, which tends to stick at the bottom of plastic litter boxes too, really sticks on this smooth surface in my experience. I have changed to a different litter that clumps but doesn't stick to the bottom.
I received the litter box today and love the quality of the stainless steel litter box but the front corners of the plastic top part were cracked. I had to contact Chewy for a return and replacement, which was super easy using their online chat feature. Chewy was great about processing the return quickly and I hope the replacement isn't broken because like I said, the bottom portion is nice and heavy duty. I only took away 1 star because the plastic top doesn't click into place but just sits on top of the metal box. One would think they would come up with a top that fits more securely, especially for the high price tag.
It’s large but the sides aren’t high enough without the overly loose plastic second piece. Also, cats don’t like tinfoil (that’s why you put on kitchen counter or living room couch to keep them off), the stainless steel is a lot like tinfoil, so best to put plenty of litter in. More litter, when cat stands on top of all that litter then it makes the sides less tall, so not great for my big make cats. The loose sides move when touched by cat tail which my cats don’t like. I found Smart Paws High Sides litter box to work much much better, so I recommend that. Although I wish that one had entrance on shorter width so multiple cat boxes don’t have to take up as much space being long side opening. What I love about both boxes is there is no top, although people like enclosed cat boxes, cats do not, so at least not as likely to develop bad habits, which is most important.
This stainless steel litter box meets all my needs. I wanted a litter box that didn’t hold in waste odors as plastic litter boxes often do. (check) A litter box that allowed for easy scooping and elimination waste didn’t stick to bottom of litter box. (check) A litter box that didn’t add further concern to our current and growing landfill issues. Being that Stainless Steel will last a lifetime in comparison to plastic litter boxes needing to be replaced often, because they become so yucky. (check) And finally a litter box that was big enough to accommodate my growing fur baby, with a bit of privacy from an open top enclosure. (check) The iPrimio Stainless Steel Cat Litter Box, X-Large fits all of my wants. Glad my research for the perfect litter box paid off.
For being over $100, I would expect the extender to clip into place or make a tighter seal against the base. One of my cats peed closer to the edge and it leaked down the outside and under the litter box. Really wanted this to work because it is more sanitary, but disappointed with the overall performance and money I spent.
I decided to invest in these litter boxes after reading reviews that they are more sanitary and will last longer than plastic, as plastic can be scratched and hold bacteria. These metal boxes do in fact scratch. The bottoms and sides are covered with scratches, which I wouldn’t mind, but the finish comes off and then they rust. I now have two very expensive rusting litter boxes.
Only shortcoming is that the top does not connect to the bottom stainless steel pan...nor is it sealed ,so urine can leak out IF a cat aims high....
I love this stainless steel cat box it’s is perfect it’s the right size and the clumps come off the sides pretty much all in one piece. My kitty has all of his claws and this will actually save me a lot of money cause I won’t have to replace it every 6 months. Thank you so much
This is the best litter box I have had. I would never bother with a plastic one again. It doesn’t absorb smells! It’s smooth, so scooping is easy. It cleans up great. Someone else mentioned that the plastic side panels are loose and come off. I secured the plastic sides to the stainless with some packing tape. They are sturdy now. It was worth the investment. I won’t ever need to buy another litter box.
