I was hesitant to get this litter box after reviews said their big cat broke the lid. But my giant Maine Coon mix has been using this for a few weeks now, and it hasn't been an issue! This box keeps the dogs out, and has drastically decreased the amount of litter on the floor. I am only disappointed that I didn't buy this sooner.
I have an 11lb girl and she fits in it well but if you have a bigger cat I would look into something else. Brought her home from the shelter where they had a typical pan litter box, so I was worried she might not take to it but I picked her up and set her on the ledge and she jumped right in and peed. It’s good at keeping down the litter mess from pawing it out of the box, but when she jumps out you can hear litter scatter on the hardwood, I’m assuming it gets in-between her toes when she’s getting ready to jump. The mat does help with that but I’m still having to do an extra sweep to keep the litter off the human toes in the house. I think they should make this model in a bigger size. 4/5 human rating: minimal scatter, almost looks like a trash can so it’s not really an eyesore, fits in small spaces 2/5 cat rating: I get litter in my toes, I have to hop in and out of my toilet, if I’m bigger than 12lbs I’m probably uncomfortable
I really like this litter box and so do all 3 of our cats (2 kittens and a 1yr old). Smooth inside makes it easy to clean. However, it does not prevent dogs from sticking their heads in. That's the only reason why it's not getting 5 stars.
It's a nice box and keeps the dogs out. My biggest issue is the lid falls in & then they can't get to their bathroom. I might drill a hole for a thin stick to keep the lid in place.
I really liked this litter box initially, but after a few days, I noticed that the paw print circular notches that are supposed to keep the lid in place didn’t line up with the holes correctly. I can only get one to fit in place, so the lid is crooked. No matter how many times I’ve tried to fix it, I can’t get it to stay. My cat has literally fallen into the litter box multiple times because the lid basically gave out. I have seen images of other reviews where the notches seem to be correct, so I think maybe mine was just faulty?
The new kitten likes it, Older cats haven't tried it. I like the fact litter doesn't scatter all over carpet. Plus like that it doesn't look like the average litter box:)
Just in case anyone else sees this and thinks it is white and pink it is white an tan. I was very disappointed I thought I saw pink. Other than that, its pricey for what it is. The scooper is so small I would never use it. I do not find it worth 40 dollars at all. Good thing for sales. I need it to keep my kitten from playing with her poop otherwise it would be returned.
So disappointing.. I have the regular size version of this box and LOVE it! I ordered another in XL. TERRIBLE!! The plastic is soo flimsy. The notches do not even latch all the way. The lid collapses in with minimal pressure. NO WAY this thing is going to support my XL cat or even one of my smaller kittens.
This box is a good idea in practice, but not execution… the way that the box latches makes the lid unstable. When I got the box, one of the buttons that holds the lid in place had to be bent outward to even get the lid to hold itself up. Every time I remove the lid to clean this box, it’s a pain to get back on, and it’s gross having to touch so many areas of litter covered plastic to wrestle with this thing. I heard a ruckus in the middle of the night last night and the lid had fallen into the litter box. Poor kitty was traumatized :( Hope he will use it again. (Pics included. It’s walnut litter, that’s why it is brown.) I don’t recommend this box. While the litter-catching grooves kind of work, the little button latches are more hassle than they’re worth, and kitty winds up tracking so much litter anyway.
We have bought this product a second time, because we love it so much! All the liter stays in the box and off your carpet! My cats LOVE to jump inside easily and do their business! It comes with a smaller scoop but it works too. The box on the inside has a smooth gliding surface, so it scraps easily! LOVE IT!
