I've bought two of these and they are perfect. All the reviews I read said "too small" or "poor quality," but honestly, I have no problems with it! It fits a standard size litter box, and my 20lb male can fit in the opening and doesn't have any issues turning around in it. 10/10 recommend that you buy this if you want a more stylish design for the litter box!
I love the look of this cabinet as it was going in our office as a side table. We have three cats and this was goi g to be our 4th litter box and we wanted this one to be hidden. The other three are in the sunroom. The look is beautiful. The problem…. Is it’s small inside and it has “vent” holes opposite the opening and our “boys” shoot their urine out the holes!!! What a mess. So we put in a board, smelly after it gets wet. So we put in a higher litter box, barely fits, urine goes down under the box now. Ordered per pads that we change every few days (costly and bad for environment). This is cute as a side table which I guess it will become and I’ll just get a lidded litter box. Not a great idea.
As much as I love this, and I do my UTTER frustration with this piece is that the opening can only be on one side. I have two of these in a small apartment which leaves the opening facing the couch no matter which way I try. My second frustration is the opening is small and shouldn’t be a circle for the fact of a deep litter box ends of blocking the entry. I’m very limited in my place and the boxes need to be in the living room, as said I love this but the ere should be options to choose which side the opening sits..not all homes are alike.
I was super happy with the look, but the placement of the entrance circle is too low and makes it hard for them to get into it, past the side wall of the litter box. I tried it out for a week, to see if they would still use it. They wound up peeing over the side of the litter box inside, because they couldn't turn around. I had to clean up urine from the bottom of the inside of the cabinet, underneath the litter container, and from the carpet, since it leaked out of there. Ultimately, I don't know what to do with the cabinet. I have no need for a pet bed hideaway, and I'm afraid if I did use it for that, they'd be too used to peeing in there already. It's in the garage for now, and I might see if I can donate it somewhere. Just sad that the size didn't work out for our boys' needs.
We tried to use this as a litter cabinet for my male cat 1.5 years old he hasn’t had any previous health problems but ended up getting a urinary blockage due to stress. There were no changes in his life or ours besides the introduction to this litter box cabinet so my vet and me narrowed it down to that being his most likely stressor even tho we kept his original box as well. As this condition is most common in male cats I would not recommend it as a litter box to male cat owners. And to note while this was not the cause of my cats flutd it is genetic even tho we did not know he had it at the time the box itself gave him no health issues but it was a major stressor for him and exasperated his symptoms to the point he needed a VERY costly surgery. The bottom line as stated by my vet is most cats do not like covered boxes. It is also very very small for a litter box and the whole to get in is very high up and made more narrow as the lip of the box even if you get the lowest one obstructs half of it. Despite all this it is well made and my cat love’s to play hide and seek and with toys in it and it’s a good spot for when he gets spooked and needs a place of just his own do while we do not use it for a box I do not regret purchasing it as it looks very nice in our house and allows him to have his own space. And despite the first half of this review being negative I would purchase it again just not for litter box purposes nor would I recommend others use it as a litter box it is not worth the risk! But it still is lovely.
First off: I saw people complaining of ill fitting components and I believe I know what they did wrong as I did it at first too... make sure the back is rotated correctly or you will have the issues others had. If it isn't fitting it's either oriented wrong or a bad part. This thing goes together with ease. That being said: This item is not designed to allow you to choose which side the entry way is. This could EASILY be allowed and is generally available in items like this unless they offer it in either orientation. This is a huge problem for me based on where it is going. I am able to make it work but it is NOT what I wanted and it doesn't 100% serve what I purchased it for. There aren't other enclosures like this as tall as it is and that is something I particularly needed. So I'm fairly sad about that, especially as it's an INCREDIBLY easy thing to fix on the manufacturing side. I could even redrill but have far too much on my plate. Also, in closing... I otherwise think this cabinet is phenomenal. It's sturdy, beautiful and BIG. Cats generally DO NOT like doing their business in enclosed spaces and having as large an enclosed space as possible is fantastic. My smaller cats have already used it and my larger as sniffed at it. I'm hoping he will come around or decide he doesn't care about having the location available to him. Otherwise I'll just remove a door which is also a solution to the opening being on the wrong side....
I love the look of this cabinet and I think it's sturdy enough for what it is. It is also great for preventing litter tracking if you put a litter mat inside and outside. The cats are forced to walk across the litter mat, unlike my open boxes where they just LAUNCH out the side spraying litter everywhere. I can't rate it 5 stars for a few reasons. It is a bit difficult to find the correct size litter box for it. You can go with the smallest you can find, but they tend to have very short sides also. I need a litterbox with a small footprint and tall sides. I might have to buy a plastic tote and cut a door to get the dimensions I need for this. My cats like to pee way up on the side walls of their boxes, so if I use a small box in this they will pee all over the inside of it. I also wish you could order left/right versions. There are a few places in my house where this cabinet would be a great fit, if only the door was on the other side.
The vent holes are too low so the litter just gets pushed out. Then the hole for the cat to get in is too low and the litter box covers half of it. The door hinges are too loose and the magnetic hold is not good.
I really like this enclosure, and I’ve had a few different ones. Taller than most and looks like a piece of furniture. Good for apartments. You can keep the feet off if your kitties don’t like to jump up into it- my 2 seniors have no issue with that. I just bought a second one (got a good deal) AND if you don’t like the colors…. You can decorate it with like a contact paper. I have the brown/orange one. I did my doors a beige and it looks great. Definitely worth it for me and my kitty kids
Using the feedback, I made a couple modifications to the containment and now it is perfect for us. How this came to be: My 16-year old told me, in his own way, that he required a litter box in the wet bar. This is a very public area with guests and so I started my search for how to accommodate his request. This has been perfect. First, I purchased a jumbo disposable litter tray and custom cut an access dip so that my boys could make it in the hole and into the litter. Have not had any problems with access. Then, I added two hooks inside to suspend the litter scooper and litter spray. (See photos) This allows me to keep the most common litter tools right there and out of the way of the boys. Every morning I clean the box. I slide it out, scoop, then vacuum the inside of the cabinet. I spray with litter spray and return it. Then I vacuum the floor at the opening and general area with my Dyson cordless. This system allows the cats to use the litter where they need it, keeps the cabinet and wet bar from smelling, and reduces litter tracking greatly.
