It’s empty in here!
I unfortunately bought two of these and on both the catches on the sides snapped off the first time I used it. The green lid cracked and none of my cats (7) like the misaligned flap. The lower front in principle is nice for my elderly cat but once she is in she struggles to get out because of the way the flap catches on the inside.
It is big enough for a large cat, hides the business nicely, easy to carry even when it's full. Fun colour
I thought it would be just another litterbox, but I really like the design of the lid, it makes it very easy to clean the litter only opening the lid.
bought 6 months ago. The top broke within a week. it is quite small. Now a large crack has appeared down the center of the tray and is completely unusable.
I had reservations after reading the negative reviews here, but fortunately they have proven unfounded. Yes, the door doesn't close tightly, but the cat doesn't seem to mind. The filter takes care of any odour problems, and provided you handle the thing normally, it's perfectly sturdy. I am the clumsiest person alive and I have yet to break it. Would recommend.
Very good product for the price you pay. And quite comfy for the cat as well!
I unfortunately bought 6 of these. The catches break off so they are unusable with the lid which leaves you with 6 uncovered trays, not nice! Would not buy them again.
I also have a more attractive box, but it's lower & smaller, & they definitely prefer this one, especially the extra depth at the back which is where they prefer to go anyway. The plastic is very smooth & easy to keep clean. The catches are a bit fiddly, but it's not a problem, & once they're definitely latched it's easy to lift with the handhold under the filter. It's good value all round.
Does what it say on the tin. Has been used daily by my Maine Coon girly for the past two years. I unclip the lid, carry the tray to the bathroom (under feline supervision) scoop the solids and clumps, flush and repeat every day. Would buy this in a larger size. The girly is still growing.
The hole between the door and the tray's wall is about 1.5 inches due to shape of the constraction (the door stands vertically, but the wall is not). Trying to place original filter into it, I teared one. It is not easy to put it in! Clicking system does not work properly. There is no handle. Nice thing that is does not smell badly as plastic could do. This tray can be good temporary solution only.
Lean on the lid to put pressure on closing the badly designed side catches and the plastic will crack. Such a shame as the high-backed design is good.
Really like this and I think my cats can tell color as I have a grey one too and they prefer the green one.......The only reason I am buying another one is because winter is here and I need an extra litter box.....We usually take the flap out as the cats are not happy with it......
An attractive and light-weight box. However, mine has just snapped clean through on the top after I lost my balance slightly when fastening lid and lent on it apparently a bit heavily (but not much). Still it is so cheap on this site I'm buying another and will remember never to lean on it! For some reason, kitten seems to want to eat deodorant pad, so I don't use it!
My kitten Little Chico loves the hooded litter tray....uses the flap...doesn't get as much litter everywhere now plus it does help with stinky kittens... It just fits where I wanted it... You do need to buy extra filters though...washing them doesn't get rid of the smell... Chico and myself are very happy...
One of the incredibly weak side-clasps had fallen off in transit, and when fitted together the doorflap seemed to be completely the wrong size! I would definitely recommend that you avoid this particular item. I shall be sticking to the Catit brand in future.
I have just previously posted that this litter box has a poorly fitting door and overly tight clips at the side. On consideration, after re-reading one of the posts on here and seeing photos of other boxes, I find that I also have had the door on the wrong way round and, after changing it I find it fits perfectly!! I was given this box already assembled and didn't give it a thought but it does, perhaps, prove the need for assembly instructions. I stand by my comment that the clips, whilst not impossible to open and close, could be easier.
Flexible but flimsy side clips held on by a thin, easily split seam. One of mine has now split, so the top no longer attaches to the base. I can no longer lift the box by it's handle. Cannot be fixed.
my 3 cats love it not sure of flap but soon in and out no problem very good for money easy to use very pleased
The plastic is very thin, the door is a poor fit and the catches are rubbish. Do yourself a favour and choose something else!
My Bengal didn't like the original covered tray we had and so used normal trays for nearly two years. I bought this one on the chance the opening top would help her get used to it. She now uses it with the top down and flap on and never goes near the plain tray. I am definitely going to get another for when our la test family addition arrives.
This works so much better for our 2 kittens than even a high sided tray because they were making such a mess with the litter. I was a bit concerned it would be too small for them both but they're perfectly happy sharing at the moment. One of them did pee in the handle on top of the box within a week of using it though, and soaked the filter, so we decided not to replace and use it without - the smell has been hardly noticeable since we changed to clumping litter. Great for a compact space.
just found out, i put the door on back to front, thats why ther is a need for instruction booklet
very impressed with delivery, but wen i opened the box, there were no instructions with it, it was simply enough to assemble though. my only niggle with this item is, there seems to be quite a large gap between box and flap. hopefully the smells and litter will stay in the box. hopefully i have put it together properly, thats why instructions would have been helpful. this is the reason for a four rating
Bought 2 of these for my two cats, on my daughters recommendation. Perfect solution for the frantic digger and also for the geriatric, unreliable squatter. I've not attached the cat flaps, as both my cats are creatures of habit and I thought it might be too far out of their comfort zone. I also don't click the top flap down, so that I can easily get to the beastly clumps. Maybe all covered trays are as good as these. But these were very reasonably priced. I just wish I'd bought them 8 years ago so I hadn't had to have the endless battle with scattered litter and unspeakable mess. The 17-year-old particularly likes the privacy. Also the extra filters are fab as there are 6 in a pack. Highly recommend.
My two cats have been using this for a few months now. It is well-made and a nice deep tray but there are some things which make it more difficult for me, whilst fine for the cats. Firstly the catches are very stiff and I have arthritis in my hands, so I have to ask someone else to do them for me when the tray needs a complete clean and refill. Fortunately the flap lifts up enough to allow more frequent removal of lumps. Recently, I have actually stopped using the catches which fasten the tray to the hood because of the inconvenience and have to carry the entire tray from the base instead of being able to use the handle. Secondly, unlike other covered trays I have had, the flap (perhaps because it is designed to lift up for cleaning?) does not fit tightly into the base of the tray so the smells are not so well retained inside. All in all, despite the relative strength and durability of this tray, I would probably not buy another like it.
Bought this a year ago, my cat Bluebell is now 16 months old and still loving the privacy of her cat toilet. It's good value for money, easy to clean and very stylish.
I have three of these and they were exactly what i wanted, love the colour and they are nice and big, just the job!
What I really liked about this litter (apart from the price) was the fact that the door piece raised so high and out of the way. Our new cat had never been used to using a litter and for a start we just had the tray, which was fine, apart from the fact that the litter went everywhere when she covered up. This new litter has introduced her slowly to having a hood over the top. Now all I have to find is a suitable mat so it doesn't tread off her paws.
Having had this a month I am having to replace it. My Maine Coon jumped on the top of it and broke it. It was perfect for my raggies to use, easy to clean, etc. not Maine Coon proof. :)
I didn't think my five would be clever enough to work one with a door but they love them. I bought four and they are very good at reducing odour and tracking. At this price an amazing buy!
I've already got a similar litter box and was going to buy the same one for my other cat but unfortunately couldn't get it anymore. So I decided to buy the Savi Nestor litter box. It's a good size, nice colour and good prize. However, I was quite disappointed that the door doesn't close properly. In fact there is quite a big gap between the lid and the door which means that it still smells. Also, the catches are quite flimsy and it's quite fiddly to get the lid onto the tray. Wouldn't buy one again. Great service from zooplus as always though!
I bought this litter box due to the great reviews on Zooplus! However, although it looks great, is easy to clean and my two Russian Blues adore it, the flap does not shut properly allowing the ODOURS to escape. A further disadvantage is that lots of litter gets kicked out from the box causing a dreadful mess. I have discovered a better litterbox on zooplus that we the owners love and so do our cats. I would avoid this product.
My 2 Bengals love these trays. We bought 3. They are very neat and tidy, look much better than our exsisting trays, but smaller and fiddly to clean, I put more litter on the floor than they do! When her Mum is using they tray her daughter pushes the door on her nose. It is also great watching the younger one getting out of the tray, she can't work out how to push it and contorts herself to come out underneath with the door swinging inwards. A good buy.
This tray is fab great to empty no taking off the lid just lift up flap, and wow what a bargain so worth it. Also great service from zoo plus
I bought this when my cat kept kicking her litter around the kitchen floor. Plus the smell was disgusting. Bought this on special offer in colour green its lovely and bright. Easy to take lid off and on and also you lift the flap if you cat is scared of the flap like mine. No litter or smells escape and easy to clean. Will purchase again in future.
We bought two of these trays and I was disappointed that the door doesn't close properly. Because the lid is at an angle and the door hangs straight down there is an inch or two gap between the door and the lid. This allows smells to escape (one of the reasons we got a covered tray). The trays were posted badly too (one tray on either side of 20kg of food) so one of the clips was damaged and we had to fiddle to get the tray to fit together properly. The trays other then that are a good size and easy to clean. Probably wouldn't buy them again though.
Very good buy
This box represents good value for money. The lid felt a little flimsy but once assembled it was fine - this is a very sturdy litter box. My only gripe is that the catches are not of the quality I was expecting. I had assumed they would resemble the catches on a Savic cat carrier. They are a bit fiddly to start with but fine once you get the hang of them. The filter in the lid really does work! Wish I'd bought one years ago! Best of all the cats have taken to this new covered tray straight away. NB. The Savic ASEO litter tray is exactly the same size/shape as the base on the Savic Nestor - you just need to remove the rim on the ASEO and the Nestor lid fits perfectly.
This cat litter box is best one yet! It is slimline, but big enough for my cats to use comfortably. It is very easy to carry and most importantly to clean. I am buying another one right away as I am very pleased with this item.
It is a bit bigger than looks pictured.. but is very sturdy. I was disappointed when my cat got in it and still tracked litter out with it...(mainly our point in buying a covered litterbox). We will try it for now...
