Big box for big cats!
Everything stays in the box and nothing sticks to the sides. Odour are well controlled because cats have room to cover their offerings. The dimensions are accurate. It fits under a side table.
Functional and sturdy enclosed let pan.
High entry door and top-hung swinging door help to contain litter when kitten buries her efforts. Sturdily built clips hold top and bottom together securely and are strong enough to allow the whole thing to be lifted by top handle - even when filled with litter. Clips disconnect easily to allow for easy access for cleaning. Deep bottom plan hope ample amounts of litter and unit is large enough for a multi-cat household. Aside from that, it does what it's there for. It's a litter pan... What else can I say?
Perfect for cats who are afraid of enclosed places
I bought this because I was tired of cleaning up the mess my cat makes when digging in his litter and covering up his business. I've tried other covered litter pans in the past, but my cat was too nervous about going in a dark enclosed space. Also, I found it awkward to have to find a place to put the cover down when I cleaned out the litter box and hard to tell when it needed cleaning. This covered litter box with a translucent lid worked out perfectly for both me and my cat. It's clear enough to let light come through, so my cat is more comfortable using it. The reflected light also helps me tell if the box needs cleaning, without having to remove the lid. I put a hook on the wall behind the litter box, and that's where I put the lid when I take it off. I am so happy about how much easier this has made my life. Laugh if you will, but I smile every time I see my cat use the box. And all for a ridiculously low price.
A great pet product!
I was looking for a replacement for two of my previous covered litter trays. They were almost seven years old, had become very brittle and were cracking. As well, the lids no longer fit and could not be locked so I could no longer use them. After looking for ages, and checking out many different makes and models, I finally ordered two of the Van Ness product online. They are terrific: light weight, well constructed, translucent which is great for our diverse mix of cats, some of which are very skittish and their locking mechanism works so well. These covered litter boxes are so safe and save us so much cleanup time. Since we rescued 26 cats some five years ago but still have 10 still living with us along with an eleventh that chose our house as his home, we will be replacing our remaining five with more of the Van Ness boxes, as we can afford to do so.
Nice Litter Box but No Handle
It's a nice Litter Box. However; it was missing the handle on top. :( They didn't have any in stock, so I couldn't get a replacement handle.
Better than the last one!
So this one came well packaged. The last one had no packing materials in it. I wish it was as translucent as it looks in the stock photo. (So the cats can do their business, without feeling closed in.) You'll see from my pic, that it is not. It's good for odor control. I handle it with care, because after the mess the other one came in, the plastic does feel like it would crack easily. Another con, cleaning the litter. That cute so called 'elegant' design does not make it easy to scoop the litter. You have to get in there and dig out the litter. It doesn't come out in a rounded ball, because the corners are not smooth. I've tried 2 different scoopable litters, with the same results. To buy or not to buy? For me, I would buy this 'type' of litter pan again, but not this one in particular. Mainly because of the way the pan is designed. You want to get in, scoop and get it done. Not work around a design that doesn't allow the litter to clump properly.
Dont expect the iridescent Teal color in the ad!
I ordered a new ombre teal shower curtain i tried to be cute with a matching litterbox LIKe the picture Shows more of a iridescent Teal. I recieved a Very Blue litterbox that i had to force the latch to fit and its missing the handle for the lid..
I bought this cat pan for the second time as the first one came with a broken lid from top to bottom.When the second one came the cat pan lid was also broken again this time at the snaps. I was extremely disappointed and had reported it both times. I will be very wary of ordering any products that can be broken.
Van Ness Cat Pan
This arrived with severe cracking all along the edge of the bottom half of the pan. What could have caused that kind of damage? Is the plastic that cheap?! Good thing Walmart has an easy return policy. Only because of this will I take a chance & get another one delivered. I'll be posting a review on that 1, once received.
Very fragile. Do not buy.
Used for less than 1 day. Bought 2 for our 2 cats as we travel and wanted extra volume. Both came with broken plastic at hinges. Not critical so tried to use them. Bumping side of box with our metal scooper cracked the box. Not durable at all. Returned both and bought 2 different units in store which are working great.
Mocha and I both like it.
I really like the overall size and the depth of the litterbox. I had to remove the swinging door since my 16 y/o cat wouldn't go in. No biggie. It works really well for me.
Locking cat pan
I found this to be an excellent product that my cat took to right away. I especially like that the lid locks in place so my cat can't keep knocking it off, It's easy to pick up even when it has litter in it and the filter keeps it from smelling
Thin plastic. It was shipped with something heavy and loose in the box. It was cracked and broken. I returned it and would not bother with another one. Bought something better
Waste of money. The door doesn't work and the hole is too small. The plastic is very cheap and a hinge broke off. The cardboard box it came in would work a lot better. I can't return it, so I'm out 20.00 for nothing.
Bottom was broken and missing a latch that clips top and bottom together. Will not purchase anything else. Very unhappy
Good litter pan, but not as large as I expected
I bought the litter box because it was listed as giant. Tho it is a nice litter box, I wouldn't have called it giant. I was expecting it to be a lot bigger. It is no bigger than my older covered litter boxes, and they weren't called giant litter boxes.
Door is hard for the kitten to swing back and forth.
Very nice looking but only big enough for a kitten. The bottom of the floor box is very small. I should of read the sizing better.
I like the see thru so I know what's in there and my cat loves it
Broken upon arrival
The clear half of the litter box arrived broken.
