Petmate’s Hooded Pans offer your cat privacy while containing litter scatter, keeping your house cleaner.
While shopping in a department store, I noticed that basic litter boxes for cats cost more than a dishpan. The litter boxes were priced at over $6.00 each. The dishpans were priced at $1.29 each.
Whisker City™ Extra-Large Hooded Cat Pans cats far prefer to use a large deep box, when the litter is deep enough it has time to clump before reaching the bottom and cementing to the side or bottom of your box
Overview The Littermaid ML980 Mega is one of the more popular entry-level rake operated cat boxes on the market, The unit is not quite as different from most of the other rake operated pet pans, however it’s certainly the highest ranking affordable cat waste box on the market. The litter pan provides a spacious, high walled, classic design in order to cater to multiple cats big and small. The high wall design is designed to stop litter from being kicked out of the sandbox, the LitterMaid also comes with a anti-trailing ramp which is meant to stop the common problem with litter trailing. The LM has the capabilities to house at least 1 week worth of litter before needing to be changed, the unit takes disposable trash containers however the Litter Maid provides reusable alternatives for people not looking to spend more on branded containers. The LitterMaid LM980 handles odor quite well and is reinforced with carbon filters to knock out offensive cat box odors.When comparing covered and uncovered boxes of equal size, a covered litter box takes up the same amount of floor space that an uncovered box does but is effectively much smaller for your cat since his head cannot extend beyond the perimeter of the pan.An open litter pan is generally the most basic and least expensive design. They are commonly constructed out of plastic, however some disposable models exist, in the shape of a rectangular tray with outwardly sloped sides 10 to 15 centimeters (3.9 to 5.9 inches) high. Open litter pans allow for maximum ventilation which may increase cat comfort. Also, they show the waste most visibly which may encourage owners to scoop the box more frequently. Litter pans with low walls may not contain litter when a pet scratches or digs, some animals who eliminate standing up may be able to urinate/defecate over the walls. Some designs include a detachable rim to help catch litter when the animal kicks to bury their waste.1. Considering cats’ needs first. Felines prefer litter boxes that are placed in low-traffic, quiet areas that have expansive views. These spots are sometimes found in living rooms, family rooms, kitchens, and bedrooms. Although favored by felines, these locations often do not win the popular vote from the resident humans.
