I never thought I'd love a litter tray...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Catit Jumbo Hooded Cat Pan - Tiger Design (Misc.)
As the title says, I never thought I'd love a litter tray up until I bought this beauty! As far as looks go it's pretty bland, and the zebra print detail doesn't really do much for me, but what this tray has done for my life is nothing short of amazing. Let me explain:
I have three cats who have always used the great outdoors to go loo, up until a few months ago, when, one by one, they started destroying the house. It wasn't their fault as they were each diagnosed with different illnesses that unfortunately meant that when they had to go, but for someone not used to scooping litter at all, having three cats frequently using a small tray at unpredictable hours of the day did not a happy owner make.
Cue this big boy! Granted, it takes a HECK of a lot of litter to fill it up, but BOY does it last! I use this tray in conjunction with large litter liners and clumping cat litter (average brand, from my local supermarket), and it suits all three cats for approx. a week or two. The litter depth means that whilst my cats are happily burying their refuse, they don't reach the bottom of the tray, so it doesn't stick to the sides (whilst the liners and the clumping litter do even more to prevent this). The large size means that even my largest boy (a 6kg monster) can happily tuck his whole body in and manoeuvre whilst he does his business - he even has room to spare! One of my cats is an energetic digger - she literally flings the litter outside of the box when she digs, but with this box that isn't a problem.
I don't mean to say that I leave the litter for a week, but with a single scooping in the morning it'll last until nightfall, and vice versa, and with regular top-ups, it lasts the week. Again, with three cats using it.
I took the door off, as I don't think that the cats could quite figure out what to do with it, and overall it made the space seem quite claustrophobic for them - I think that was a design idea more for us humans than for the cats.
Overall, I hope that I have described a simple yet brilliant litterbox, one well worth the money.
