Petmate® Hooded Wave Cat Litter Pan
poor-do not buy
Bought 2 of these in the store today and they're going back tomorrow. As I was getting ready to set up the first one I noticed one of the tabs that holds the door on was broken. So I proceeded to the second one. The door was intact, so I thought ok good. There are 2 MAJOR flaws with this box:
1) the top doesn't latch to the bottom. It just sits on top of it.
2) the door does not swing freely in both directions. It hangs up at the top and you really have to force it to get it to swing open.

Not awful, but the design is flawed
I bought this litter box to replace an older hooded litter box that had outlived it's prime. Brought it home, set it up and everything seemed to be going fine...until my cat used it. He has a tendency to bolt out of the box once he's done doing his business and when he did the ENTIRE top of the box went with him! Since the top doesn't clip or lock to the bottom it lifts off VERY easily. Later that week, the door fell out. After reattaching the door numerous times over the following week (as it kept falling out), the holes eventually stretched and no longer held the door at all, rendering that part completely useless. I suppose if you have a very gentle cat this would serve the purpose, but it's not for active cats.
