It’s empty in here!
I have had cats for years and over them years have had numerous litter trays but they have all had the same problem they all leaked. Now i have found the solution - no more cat urine leaks and also looks good as well. Yes abit pricey but for me and my cats it's worth it.
I bought one of these thinking they were really expensive but went off the reviews on here, I was not disapointed, it really reduced the litter comming out of the tray, so much so I got a second one. Love them, really worth the money to stop the litter tracking all over the place.
Admittedly, I was reluctant to spend this much money on something made from plastic. (Kudos to the ModKat marketers for this.) Nonetheless, after years of our dogs getting into our cat's litter to feast on his feces, I was fed up... so I bought one of these. I worried that it would be another failed effort to keep them away, but it has done the trick. We've had it for two weeks now and it has changed our domestic lives dramatically. No more worrying about cleaning up the litter right after the cat goes. We can even leave it overnight (yes, we did an experiment to see if the dogs could get into it in the night--they couldn't). Our dogs are small, around 9kg, so it possible a big dog, like a greyhound, would be able to stick its head in and continue feasting... so it may not be a solution for large breed owners with this problem. I was also worried the dogs would tip the container over, but they haven't. It is quite heavy and seems to stick in place. I was also pleasantly surprised to see that the grate at the top actually works for catching litter. Our cat is a notorious digger and we used to need to vacuum twice a day to both collect the tracked litter, as well as the pet hair in the house. I'm pleased to say that the litter tends to stay in the box with a few stray pieces landing right outside when he jumps out. The only thing that seems silly to me is keeping a scooper on the outside of the box. We leave ours in a bin next to the toilet just as before, because honestly, that part seems a bit unhygienic. Overall, I'm very happy with this and I have found it was worth the money.
I bought this because my 10week old kitten was scattering litter all over the place and then trailing it all through my flat. I have a really small flat and nowhere I could obviously store a large hooded litter box without being unsightly. I opened the Modkat about an hour and half ago. It certainly seems easy to change and clean. I let Martha watch me fill it up and add some litter from her old tray. Then followed an anxious time - Martha spent much of this time siting on the top and looking inside anxiously; I spent most of it anxiously waiting to see if she'd go inside (while pretending not to) because, while it's attractive for a litter box, I don't really want what, if she doesn't use it, is just a very expensive blue box. And success! She just used it, had a good dig around and then popped out...with no litter on the carpet. I'm not convinced it will be 100% effective at containing litter that gets on her paws but it certainly contains that which she throws around. Negative points: 1) no filter - while it does contain the smell reasonably well it's not smell free 2) even though I knew the dimensions it still a lot bigger than I expected though I suppose it needs to be big enough for a large adult cat 3)not convinced I'd want to use the scoop and then just hang it there on the side when it's possibly not entirely clean. Despite these small things I would say that overall I'm very happy with it. It looks a lot better than a standard tray and seems very effective at containing the litter.
So, I have two previous reviews about this box, as I love it, but was disappointed with the lid design as the button you press snapped off both my boxes. I got two new lids as replacements and the button design is now altered so if it snaps off again they don't have to send you an whole new lid, just the button itself as it detaches now. Maybe the new lid design is standard for these boxes now. I would hope they last longer than the old design did... Still wouldn't use any other litter box. Happy to have working lids.
The yellow modkat arrived, I want to point out it is a pale lemon colour (very nice colour) whereas the picture on this site makes it look a grubby dark beige!! I was frustrated though by the fact for weeks zooplus hasn't stocked the black version and now they're reduced them again in price...all very frustrating. My modkat did have a bad scratch on the front but as I needed it urgently I didn't return it (I had waited for weeks for the black version to be stocked again and couldnt wait any longer). I definately recommend this litter box though, so much easier on the eye that other designs and there is no anti-litter tracking mat. Though one of my cats manages to track litter everywhere still :(
The price of this box is enormous but I think the amount of work it saves makes it worth it for me. My cat is a digger and kicks litter all over the place when using a traditional tray. Hopefully he'll be around for another ten years at least, and this litter box can prove its worth.
I got a blue Modkat recently for the bathroom as we wanted a litter tray that looked nice, was easy to clean and would help prevent tracking. The modkat certainly met all of those requirements and my selkirk rex loves it. I also have two ocicat boys who use it, although it seems a little cramped for them. No problems with the button yet - I've had it a month and the liner is starting to wear but it still works perfectly for now.
Just bought the yellow box two weeks ago and our cat used it straight away. No problem at all. It's very easy to clean, just flip the top. No hassle with removing the top. Good use of space and looks nice. Toilet cleaning no longer a hassle...lot of money but after evaluating pro and cons, worth it.
After 2 weeks, I had to remove the old litter tray next to the Modkat box then wait with baited breath. Finally, my cats used the modkat litter box and have voted with paws raised! It is very stylish in looks (I love it!), there is a definite reduction in the amount of litter that goes on the floor and it's very easy to remove the clumped waste (I don't even need to tilt the lid, it probably helps that I use the worlds greatest litter though). I'm so pleased I'm going to buy another one. The only downside is the brush that comes with it, as other reviewers have said the brush bit ends up in the litter when you're trying to scoop out waste and I wouldn't want to attach a dirty scoop to the box so I use a different scoop.
Our two 12 week old kittens took to this straight away. Being only babies they were kicking the kitty litter all over the show in their old box and making a right old mess, so although this was a pricey purchase, it's been worth it's weight in gold. Very little litter escapes, and even at 12 weeks our two knew what to do with it straight away - no accidents in the transition, which was a better start than we expected. Yes it's a lot of money for what is essentially a plastic box, but this is an attractive item in the home and I have not yet seen a similar design on offer anywhere else. Expensive? Yes. Worth it? Absolutely.
I left it a few day's to write this review. The litter tray is an excellent design. It looks good in the room and is easy to clean out. As long as you put the hole side into the corner of the room you get very little on the floor. I wouldn't say it has got rid of all litter on the floor but I suspect it may make a difference to what litter you use and how easily it comes off their paws. For hygeine reasons I would definately recommend this product. I did buy it on offer and got an additional 10% off due to it being my first order so it was £89, I think the price is a little steep but it does make your life a hell of a lot easier.
Like others I hesitated over the price. Especially as was not sure if my 3 month old kitten would take to it. She loves it. She also loves sitting on the top of it staring out at her domain. It's easy to clean and looks great in my lving room. Even better am not standing on bits of litter
Have had this for a few weeks before writing the review. Very pleased with this product, despite what seems a high price for a litter tray. I have cats who go mad trying to cover their mess - usually sending the cat litter everywhere without covering anything! With this, which they took to straight away, they can go mad as they like and nothing escapes. What a great idea the cleanable liner is - easy to clean, very strong, etc. Can't recommend this highly enough.
I first saw this litter tray a few months ago and liked the look of it. I am a sucker for things that look stylish as well as do what they are supposed to do so thought i would give it a go. I had a large hooded tray but i was getting fed up of not only cleaning out the bottom and my cat tearing at the filter, but also having to clean all inside of the lid too which held a strong smell of urine. I was unsure at first about using a reusable liner as i like things to be hygienically clean and i had visions of the bottom of the bag getting...well i wont say. lol anyway my modkat tray came and i (sadly) couldn't wait to fill it with cat litter and see how my cats reacted to it. I needn't have worried as they took to it straight away.I had originally got it for our new kitten and kept the hooded tray for my cat but he saw her using it and quickly joined in. The tray is large enough for my cats and my kitten. The reusable liner clings to the inside of the tray which makes for a perfect fit. What i love the most about the tray is how easy it is to clean. The inside of the tray I give a quick wipe round with soapy water and rinse after i remove the liner but there is usually no need for this anyway. A quick wipe with a wipe will be sufficient. The lid easily flips up or can be slid out to be wiped over. There is never any smells coming from it. I know as i put my nose by it to make sure it is clean! lol The liner you just empty out and again clean over it or wash it out. The mess seems to just magically empty out and doesn't stick to the bottom of the bag as you may expect. There are no fiddly clip parts or handles to have to clean with a toothbrush or that gathers dust as my old tray did. My other tray also looked grubby on the outside as the material stained. The modkat is made from a nice smooth non porous material that stays clean and can be wiped over with an e cloth or damp kitchen roll. I love the little brush that hangs on the side for visual reasons but admittedly i don't use it as I wouldn't want it hanging on there after using it to scoop kitty poop so i use a seperate one with no brush, but it can be used to just dust the top of the lid that traps bits of litter in as by the way, the holes in the lid keep litter to a minimum that gets tracked onto the floor. They really do dust off any bits of your cats feet. Needless to say, I no longer have my hooded tray now and I am purchasing another modkat. If you love things that do what they say, is simple to clean and looks stylish then this is for you. Yeah it's a little on the pricey side but the simplicity of it and how it makes what was a fiddly job, a much easier task then i am all for paying a bit extra.
well done Great litter tray my cats took to it right away a lot bigger than i imagined holds a lot of litter highley recommend thankyou zooplus
very clever idea, the cat litter falls off cats feet into the box as they climb out and not all over the floor, my sphynx cats love the privacy, It looks great not like a litter box, my cats took to it straight away, I would highly recommed, A little on the pricey side but great when on offer, but still worh it good colour choice, wouldnt buy normal litter trays ever again.
Got rid of old normal litter boxes and now have two of these Modkats in different colours. I've got a tiny bathroom and can still fit two of these next to/under the sink. Perfect! Cats have no complaints either :) I use it with "World's best cat litter multiple cat" and just flush away the clumps. So easy and fast!! No litter spills at all, it's quite amazing. Such a relief not to have to constantly clean up litter all over the floor! I find the scoop very good, the big holes in it means you sift thru the litter fast, which I like. Works very well with the litter I use anyway. Never going back to old-type litter box.
We purchased this as we thought it looked nice. The design is wonderful - it looks stylish (it is a bit large) and my cats love it, they prefer it to the other litter we have next to it. It gives the privacy to the cat using it and it allows you to put quite a bit of litter in it. On the negative side - and this in no way is anything to do with the design...my cats still spill some of the litter out (not as much), the scooper is great and has a little brush on the side but sadly I find it too big and the brush gets in the way when scooping poop and gets dirty therefore. On the whole I think a lot of thought went into this litterbox. Both my hubby and I love the design, it is novel and it does stop litter being strewn about due to gravity. Mine two sometimes leap out without jumping on the shelf, which then spills a bit but overall it is good litter box. Not sure if it warrants the price tag.
I was initially put off by the price, until I bit the bullet and had it delivered then realised its absolutely worth the cost. It's extremely well designed and has all but completely eliminated the daily chore I had of sweeping litter up that our insane Abyssinian had flicked everywhere. The cats took to it straight away with no hesitation and I'm very glad I bought it. The supplied scoop is the best I've used and looks great clipped to the side of the box. A great product albeit quite expensive.
have been really pleased with the Modkat - despite the cost. box means that you can have a greater depth of litter which allows for more digging and helps make sure everything is absorbed. there's been little or no tracking from the box and both kittens adjusted to using it very quickly. looks good, easy to keep clean, cats like it and so do I. Only downsides are it is quite a big capacity so needs a lot of litter to get started to give a reasonable depth. And at the moment despite earlier comments replacement parts (liner, scoop etc) are hard to come by in UK. so a torn liner at the moment would be a real problem. Zooplus don't list liners on the UK website, and following correspondence says they will be on the EU website but the replacement liners aren't in stock at the moment. Otherwise good but expensive
I bought it for my 3 months old siberian kitty and I was sure she will have to grow up for this litter box. Couldnt be more mistaken. She discovered it very quickly and use it more often than a normal tray or Litter Robot. And do not make any mess around (cant say it about other litter boxes). It looks very clean and elegant, is easy to clean, have a nice fancy spot to place a litter scoop and my kitty likes it. The only thing I would improve is a color - my white one looks more like a cream /ecri and does not go too well with popular white glossy furniture. I recommend it anyway ;)
we have been using our modkat for just over a week now and so far it has been a huge success. our two british short hairs were a little confused for a few hours as they had only ever used a basic tray but they worked out what had to be done and were soon using it like pros. our litter tracking problem is now solved as nothing comes out. its easy to clean and looks great. well done zooplus for acting upon the suggestion to supply the replacement liners so quickly as that was also a concern that we had.
This is made of high quality material and we love the choice of colours. Our cat took to it no problem. What we love about it is that it is a simple minimalistic design as well as does the job it was designed to do. The only thing is, ZOOPLUS we appreciate the variety and update of your products to keep our cats feline happy but please please please, can you also supply the re-usable liners for this product. I have contacted the creators behind MODKAT and they are available.. it's not helpful to buy a product but have no way in UK to source the accessories or refills. Thanks
