Rated 1 out of 5 by DasK Do NOT purchase
After a few months of trying to figure out why the cats were upset at the new litter box I found the issue: this litter box encourages my cats to do their business facing inward. Since the door flap never closes the cats continue to get excrement on the floor right outside the box.
The door never closes, this was something I thought I could deal with, but the smell that is allowed to escape is just too much. If the door was to remain shut it would need to be at a 15 degree angle to that of gravity. As it sits, the door always has a 1-2 inch gap which lets out the smell and, in the case of occupancy, liquids.
This is going in the trash after 2 months. Save yourself the trouble and find something else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by bigblueeyes52184 Wonderful litter pan
I have two cats and needed to have two litter pans. I bought this litter pan and am about to buy another and get rid of my old one because the Whisker City one is wonderful. My kitties love it and it's super easy to clean.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MoxiesMama SOLVED MY SCATTERED LITTER PROBLEM
Ex-Problem #1 - new kitten flicks litter like crazy
Ex-Problem #2 - poopy smell
This litter pan solved both problems.
I have taped the flap up/inside with sticky tape until kitty gets accustomed to it. It IS cheaply made, but I got it on sale for a bargain, so no complaints here.
Even with th flap taped up, he doesn't flick litter outside the pan AND I don't smell anything - I can't even tell anymore when he's used the litter box! [I use the "sWheat Scoop original" litter and I'm happy with it.].
The left slide/clip is a little troublesome and it takes a few seconds of jiggling, but I only need to remove the top when replacing the litter liners & cleaning/disinfecting it so it's not a problem. I didn't have any problem removing the label. I just did it carefully.
I am a happy momma!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Tolana Better than Nature's Miracle
I originally got "Natures Miracle Advanced Oval Hooded Litter Box" for my digger. It was too long for the nook I have due to the pour spout at the end. It also seemed a little narrow, even though it was so tall.
Size: This Whisker City pan is actually wider at the bottom than the Natures Miracle oval pan by nearly an inch. That makes all the difference for my 14-lb kitty.
Latches: It's true that the hood latch locks are stiff, and that the hood is hard to get off even when they're unlocked. But you don't need to in order to scoop daily. The top of the hood with the carbon filter flips up.
Flap: On the box I bought in-store, the flap didn't stay in, but I didn't plan to use it anyway. Unless your cat likes to go standing up, I don't think it's necessary.
