When you think about it, litter boxes for cats are just not made very big. Is this phenomenon for our cats' benefit or for ours?
I don't know the answer to the question, but I know that cats need some space to move around when they hop into their litter boxes. They need to pee or poop and then bury it with dirt (aka kitty litter), and jump out of their boxes and get out of town before any predator catches on that there are cats around. That's natural cat behavior. But don't fence your cat in so that he can't bury his scat, shake himself off and exit his box comfortably.
The Catit Jumbo Cat Litter Box is 22 inches long, 17 inches wide (18 inches wide outside), and 18 inches tall, as one customer wrote, plenty of room for three average size cats to sit in at the same time. It is one of the largest litter boxes I have seen and it has a few other special features too.
With a litter box flap door 10.4 inches by 9.6 inches, there's plenty of room for a large cat to enter and exit. If you flip the door inside towards the ceiling of the box, it will stay open, if your cat is bothered by it. This feature is handy for you too, when you remove the soiled litter daily.
The Catit Jumbo Cat Litter Box also comes with a carbon filter attached atop the box in front of the handle. The filter is used to remove odors, but sometimes cats seem to tear them up. Of course, there are many other products that can remove litter odors that are less accessible to your cats! Catit makes Magic Blue odor remover which comes in a small pad that attaches to the inside top of the litter box, or you can use one of the top odor removers I've reviewed here.
This litter box has four 'locking tabs' that make it easy to dissemble the box for cleaning and/or for removing disposable litter bags. The box itself weighs about 5.5 pounds, but with litter, it's going to be quite heavy depending on the kind of litter you use; lighter weight cat litters are available here on Amazon.
Of course, the Catit needs to be cleaned weekly, like other litter boxes, with a gentle soap (dishwashing soap is fine) and water. It's easiest to rinse outside with a garden hose. Make sure you wear protective, disposable gloves and a mask to protect yourself from toxoplasmosis, if your cat goes outdoors.
For my cats, big is better when it comes to litter boxes!
That's the buzz for today!
