I LOVE this litterbox! I currently have 5 cats of my own. I also foster adult cats and kittens for a local shelter. I purchased this new litterbox for my foster kitty. When scoop able litter is used in this unit, all I do is use one hand to remove the lid with one hand and dispose of the clumped litter. I dislike other units where you have to bend over, unsnap something (or attempt to), and then remove the lid. I enjoy being able to pop in the room, quickly remove the lid (since it just lays on grooves and isn't fully attached), and move on. I also like how I can take out the swinging door until my foster is used to it. The box being on a little incline is also a plus. The little clumps so easily no matter where the kitty goes in the box. A friend of mine let me borrow a covered litter pan that was flat, in the shape of a triangle, had 2 snaps and a hinge you had to lock on each time you used it. This litterbox is FAR SUPERIOR to that one. Plus, if you need to move it, you just pick up under where the 2 sides meet and easily move it. Can't wait to purchase another to use as a backup for my Boys when they need more than their electronic CatGenie self washing litterbox! Great buy!

Rated 2 out of 5 by Trisha71 Not well constructed
I purchased three of these handle, hooded litter pans from PetSmart for my multiple cat household, and because of the price compared to other hooded litter pans. The hood does not "fasten/lock" to the base so you cannot use the handle to "pick up" the entire litter box to move in order to clean areas. Also, urine escapes between the hood and the tray which makes a daily cleanup.
I have PetMate carriers (which are well constructed for transporting my pets)... when you use the handle to pick up the carrier, the entire unit is intact. Why aren't these litter boxes? I will not purchase this particular hooded litter product again, or recommend it unless improvements to it are made. I hope future PetMate handle, hooded litter pans are better constructed.
