Best Cat Litter Boxes

Looking for the right litter box for your furry friends? For every cat in the house, there will need to be a litter box. But not every litter box is created equal. Litterboxes should be easy for cats to access, should keep the litter inside the box and conceal odors, and also be spacious enough for your kitty or kitties to use without feeling crowded. While there are motorized versions out there, it is not necessary to go high-tech for this essential pet parent product and still get all the convenience associated with those units. The top cat litter boxes on the market right now are the Catit Jumbo Hooded Cat Litter Pan, the Iris Cat Litter Box with Scoop, and the Omega Paw Self-Cleaning Litter Box. Which one is designed to meet all of your cat's needs while keeping the budget under control? Read on to get the lowdown with these most frequently asked questions.

  2. Is one box built for multiple cats?
    Reply

    Both the Catit and the Omega Paw are spacious options with enough room for two cats to fit inside. However, it is recommended that each cat have their own litter box as that is what many cats will prefer.  Some cats prefer the ability to really dig down into the litter. The Iris box has high sides so kitty can toss the stuff as much as they want with scattering the stuff all over the home.

  3. Do you have to scoop the litter in all of them?
    Reply

    If coming close to touching soiled litter is not the thing, the Omega Pay litter box allows the user to clean the litter by just rolling the entire pan over. A clever grate inside catches the clumps and deposits them in the collection tray when you flip back upright. Simply empty the tray. The box will need a good scrub from time to time. The other two require scooping.

  4. What is the most durable litter box?
    Reply

    The most expensive box is the Catit Hooded Cat Litter pan that is priced at nearly $50. But with this price, you are getting a higher level of quality. It is made out of heavy duty plastic and includes a flap for kitty's privacy. It also has a carbon filter on the top to reduce smells and replacement cartridges can be purchased as needed. The lid snaps closed so the cat can't dislodge it while jumping in or out and the high sides prevent leaking and accidents.

  5. Which litter box is enclosed to block sight and smell?
    Reply

    Both the Catit and Omega Paw are enclosed pans. Both come with clips that keep the top secured to the bottom. However, the Omega totally blocks the view of the waste as the inner catch tray collects clumps. Pull out the tray and empty it into the trash. With daily cleaning, there is almost no smell when it is cleaned on a regular basis.

  6. Can the sides or top be removed?
    Reply

    Not every cat wants to enter an enclosed litter box. Take the top off of the Catit without a problem, but if it is taken off the Omega it won't function as a no-touch tray. The extra-high sides come off of the Iris if the cat is having difficulty getting inside or if they are extra large.

  7. Do any boxes come with a scoop?
    Reply

    The Iris litter box comes with a bonus scoop, making its low purchase price even more attractive. A scoop is not needed with the Omega and you will need to spend even more money for one when the option is the Catit.

  8. What color do boxes come in?
    Reply

    The Catit is only available in gray. The Iris arrives in an opaque white plastic. The Omega Paws is available in black, brown, and gray with other fashion colors appearing from time to time. It also features chrome-colored clips giving an appliance-type appearance that will blend in with a contemporary laundry room.
