Petmate® Top Entry Cat Litter Pan
21.99 New Available
Petmate® Top Entry Cat Litter Pan is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Perfect for cats who don't aim My senior cat just "goes" -- no squat, no nothing -- so a top-entry design is essential if I want the urine to actually land in the box. I've had other top-entry boxes before, so here's my two cents, the good and the bad: The first top-entry box that we used for years was similar to this, but grooves instead of holes in the lid (so litter accumulated -- gross), and the lid snapped down all the way around (like a Rubbermaid bin), so the litter would go flying whenever you opened it. BUT, she wasn't peeing out of the box onto the carpet, so that was a win for us. When I couldn't find that one anymore, we tried the Whisker City one that has more of a clamshell design, with the seam midway up. It seemed great, until after a week I moved it to give the box a thorough scrubdown. O.M.G. -- did I mention she doesn't squat, but just lets it hit the side of the box? Midpoint seam= midpoint leak. There was a pool of urine that had come through the Whisker City seam and secretly accumulated under the box. My wood parquet has never been the same. If I could have returned a used litter box, I would have. Positives on this Petmate one: --Your cat is really going to have to make an effort to miss the box. --Most of the litter falls back into the box instead of staying on the lid. --It's easy to open the lid to clean it, and I don't have to find a place to set down the lid while I work. --I have an arthritic senior (who can jump but not squat) and an older kitten, and they both use this no problem. A few cons: --The black lid looks snazzy on the shelf, but after a month of cat scratching and owner cleaning, it gets white spots. The manufacturer should choose a more neutral/ durable color. --None of the other reviewers seem to understand what the bump is for. It's a molded handle, so you can hold the bottom when you dump the litter out. It's STUPID. (So, Petmate -- even the people who know what it is don't like it. Ditch it.) I get why they put it there, but it's waaay more trouble than it's worth. It's just an obstacle to scoop around. --Some people are peeved about the hinges. I like them better than my old Rubbermaid-style lid that would stick and then pop off. If there's a bunch of litter on top of the lid, then I just knock it back into the box before I open it. Don't go throwing the lid all the way open right away. I open it slowly so that most of the litter falls back through the holes, and then I vacuum the little bit that accumulates next to the hinge. I bought two of these boxes, and one has tighter hinges than the other. (one stays attached when I open it, and one doesn't.) So, if you don't want the hinge, find a looser one. So, this Petmate one, it's not perfect. And if you are buying a top entry to keep the dogs out, or the odor in, it may not be your best choice. But if you have a cat who doesn't know how to aim, this is definitely the way to go.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not the greatest The holes in the lid are a nice touch to drain litter, but the top lid itself is pretty flimsy. Whomever elected to design a LUMP into the bottom of a litter box was not thinking really clearly. There are better choices, and one of them is any size open top plastic box of your choosing, and you'll have about 20 bucks left over when you're done. If the cats like it and the dogs stay out its a winner at our house.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flimsy Junk. Not worth the irritation Looks clean and sleek but has flimsy top that you will spend more time trying to reattach than cleaning your box. At 35 bucks a pop, you would expect higher quality

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much less litter scattered on my floor!! I bought this litter box after trying a hooded one for our new rescue kitty. I was a little concerned that the Kitty (being so small) would have a hard time entering and exiting this one. No worries, she did amazing. and the scattered litter on my bathroom floor is almost nonexistent. I still put a small rug in front of it for the few that don't fall off on her exit

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Improved litter tracking I was looking for a litter box that reduced litter tracking without breaking the bank. I have two kittens that love to really dig up the litter to hide there business which caused a mess all over my kitchen. This top entry box fixed our problem by greatly reducing the amount of litter being tracked out to the floor by at least 95%. I also love the design of it because the actual litter is hidden from plan sight and not a lot of guest we have would ever be able to tell it's a litter box. I noticed a lot of past reviews pointed out about the bottom Hump holding used cat litter and making it difficult to clean out, I'm happy to report the manufacturer has changed that to a newer version and it's now completely flat without any humps or lines to hold the litter at the bottom. The lid itself seams well made to hold the weight of an adult cat but I wish it didn't have the hinge, I wish instead the lid just popped stright up this way I can pour the litter that's sitting on the lid back in to the box, with the hinge it swings out so any litter that sitting on the lid will just go on the floor, I altered mines with a razor to cut the hinge out so now it's much better. After trying many cat litter boxes this has to be the best one till date and the best one I ever used to keep the litter where it belongs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for families with dogs! And less mess... I've used 3 of these boxes for over a year now for my two cats. Got them originally to keep the dog out - but turned out she wasn't that interested in litter. I keep them because they have so much less mess falling outside of them than a traditional box! Two improvements I wish they could make 1) I wish the bottom didn't have the indents - makes it harder to scoop the litter. 2) I wish they had a larger size that was a bit taller. Our 10-12 lb cat fits in here great, the larger 15 lb cat doesn't quite fit comfortably but he does use it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it and so do my pets! This is my second one. Our family increased. This litter box is great, since I don’t have to worry about my dogs trying to mess with the used litter.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Safety concern We had this litter box for 10 minutes when our cat's toe got stuck in the holes on the lid. If we were not sitting there to help him out, he would have tried to jump off and really hurt his toe. We returned it immediately.

I had one of these before and my cats had no problem using it, even big and sturdy enough for my 14 lbs. Siamese. Question: Is that dumb little divot thing still inside of it? Newer remodeled versions seen on other sites don't have it anymore.

Asked by: Cat Man Doo
Yes, the divot was still in mine (purchased early 2018)

How do older cats manage with this style of litter box?

Asked by: SueTenor
Our cat started using this at age 6 and got used to it in no time. If your cat is able to jump up on chairs, they should be able to use this box.

How can I get my cat to use it

Asked by: Tyre kc 02
Each pet is different but most cats will take to it without too much effort. It is recommended to first add litter then place the pet in the unit on top of the litter. Close the lid. Most cats will scratch around and then many times do their business and then jump out. In some cases this process may need to be applied several times before they get it. Also, make sure the cat is old enough to make the jump in and out.

I’m interested at this item but seems like there is no matching liner plastic bag for it! I was at the store to purchase it but they said there is no matching plastic bags! And these are tall so regular plastic liners don’t fit! Please let me know!

Asked by: sara_dds54
When the item was originally released there was not a liner made for this item. If the liners are not available on Petsmart.com then you can locate them at www.petmate.com under Item #29248.
