You live in a Mid Century Modern and you want it to look swank, but you have cats. Your kittehs are hip but the litterbox not so much? No worries, I have two groovy litterbox reviews for you.
The first one, pictured above is my favourite. But we have an older kitty very set in her ways and paranoid of anything new, so we have runner up reviewed below, which is her choice.
The ModKat Litterbox Kit includes a nice scoop, very nice reusable liner, comes in colours too. And I’ll admit, $129.99 sounds like a lot, especially for a box that isn’t self cleaning, as my other one that’s in storage does and cost less actually. But that thing was way bigger than it needed to be, didn’t have an effective lid to contain the spray of litter and was absolutely in the way and a mess.
On the Modkat, the box has a flip top lid. See the square button up at the top in the picture? You gently push on that en voila, the top opens up so that you can clean the box. See the inset spot toward the back side? that is where the scoop attaches. You must remove that first, then push the button to flip the lid, preferably when your kitty is not on the top of it. I bought a 2nd liner so that I can thoroughly periodically clean the liner and let it air out but the liner is sturdy! Hydra really sinks her claws into it every time she tries to cover her scat and the thing maintains.
Now, I believe I bitched about the fact I had wanted to order a 2nd liner at time of purchase, in fact yes, I know that I bitched about it! When I ordered my groovy litter box, I had to order that liner separately and had to pay extra shipping for that. So, you can do yourself a favor and click on this link for the Modkat litter box plus 3 extra liners, $169.99. This doesn’t help me now, but it helps you. 🙂 I am just happy they listened to me…to help you.
This box won design awards and really is stunning eye candy. We actually get compliments on it and who does that really, you know…walk into somebody’s residence and exclaim what a nice looking cat box they’ve got? Anybody? I can assure you that, prior to this puppy coming through our doorway, nobody EVER complimented us on our litter style.
This is a well made, well designed item, it holds up well, is easy peasy to clean, contains odor and litter well and I love it. The cats, with the exception of Seven, who is 12 and uses the other litterbox I’ve reviewed directly below, love the box too.
And now we move along to the French designed Poopoopeedo, ($89.99) which also comes in colours.
This box comes in fun colours like hot orange, that we have, hot green, a lovely dark gray and like the other box, it is roomy and easy for the kittehs to get in and out of.
This box is solidly made. The top lifts off for cleaning. There is no liner. There is a paw print cut out at the top that is both cute and allows you to grab the top and remove it. Inside the top a think scoop is provided. It is a bit flimsy but works and is made the way it is so that it will fit neatly inside the top of the box.
It makes a great 2nd box. Also, this one too, garners compliments. I don’t know about you but my day is just not right unless somebody woos over my litter box choices.
I’ll state right here that there are a few great looking boxes on the market and I am reviewing the top two in my opinion and the ones that I chose to buy myself. We have one fairly sizable cat, one old cat and 2 rambunctious kittens so I wanted to please everybody, including my design ethic. Some of the other boxes look great, but are too big for our space or too cramped for a big kitty. These are both accessible and roomy while not taking up alot of real estate.
What one will you choose? Know your Kitty! I knew Seven would never think of hopping up and down into a box to do her thing after years of stepping into one. Yes, she is very capable physically, but mentally she is too skittish. So she (and the other kitties) like this box. The kittens use both boxes basically and Seven only uses the Poopoopeedo.
Regarding cat litter, I adore the Okocat Natural Wood Cat Litter. We just have it on auto ship. It is now the only brand we use, after going through numerous brands to try and squelch the level of stink enough to please my husband. After years of suffrage, he no longer complains. I cannot expound enough to you how damn good that feels. Click on the green wording to check it out for yourself.
Between these covered boxes and this litter, life is golden. 4 cats and I scoop the boxes 2x a day.
