We purchased this about a month ago and it's okay, but the clips that fasten the top to the base are very awkward and don't fasten properly. One of our cats prefers to live up in the bedrooms so we keep her food and tray on the upstairs landing, and we carry the tray up there in our arms rather than the handle because we don't trust that it won't fall apart and cause a mess.
Big enough for my Maine coon- trouble is that because it is so big, it weighs a ton when full of litter and the weight compromises the structure. It is not actually very sturdy. Having said that, is very reasonably priced and you could afford to replace it now and again.
Not large enough, especially not long enough for my Maine Coons. I have to leave the lid open at all times otherwise it would be unusable small. One of my boys stands with his paws on the entrance part of the lid and that part cracked in the middle and on both sides of the lid.
I love how deep the tray is, the mess is minimal, lovely looking tray. The downsides is that it is very flimsy, the two clips on the sides connecting the hood to the tray are cheaply made, do not secure the two parts together, on multiple occasions the clips have failed when I've picked up the tray resulting in mess everywhere, very annoying. It's ok but I wouldn't recommend, worth spending a bit more on a good sturdy tray.
I have been very disappointed with this box. The positives are - it's a good size, strong and sturdy, easy to fetch lid off, flap removeable. The negative for me - one of my cats likes to spray whilst inside the box unfortunately and sadly urine leaks out from the seams. I always use puppy training pads underneath as a safeguard but a leaking box is a no-no for me.
I agree with Angie. The good things: Good size for cats who like a good turning circle. Strong handle makes lifting easy.
Now the not so good: The locks are stiff. Also, as its a big tray its a bit cumbersome when it comes to cleaning the lid.
And the downright useless: There is no 'cage' for the filter. I found one of my cats chomping her way through the filter - it was so easy for her to lift the filter off the top. SO, it defeats the object of having a filter.
Have to agree with others about the filter - such a stupid idea having it uncovered - the kittens went for it straight away, so I had to take it off - at the moment I have put it back and placed the perspex door over it as the kittens are unsure of using the box with the flap on, so it has temporarily solved the problem, but it definately needs looking at. Otherwise quite a good box.
Some great ideas including deep tray, bag holder, but find it annoying that with the hood correctly shut the swing door catches on the box/bag holder instead of moving freely. Means you have to lift the filter section slightly so it passes/swings with ease, not ideal. But for the money...
