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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by KGrey My cats love this box. This is litter box number two but they like it the best. They don't like doors that only open in one direction which makes this one great as the door swings both ways. The fold back hood is great for cleaning and I like it much better than my other hooded box that I have to take the lid off entirely. When the other hooded box is ready for a replacement, I will be buying another one of these.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Nacf Do Not Buy this one
Don't buy this box unless you want to spend the better part of an hour peeling the label off the door flap. No matter how careful I was the label would only come off in tiny pieces, there are still remnants that I can't get off, to say nothing of what all that picking did to my nails.
It appears to be cheaply made but the size was right and I wanted one where the top didn't latch so it would be easy to remove the top to scoop which I do several times a day. It can be left unlatched but the latches still catch on each other making it difficult to lift the top.

Rated 1 out of 5 by barbcat Bought several of the original before it was made by Whisker City. Since the top hinge on the hood flips completely open, my cats liked the boxes because their heads weren't closed in. Needed to replace them, so I bought two of the current boxes. The construction is terribly INFERIOR to the original. I have to fight, tug and pull to get the hoods off and then fight to get them back on. The latches to lock and unlock the hoods DO NOT work. The boxes are not cheap $ wise but very cheaply made and not worth the money AT ALL.
