Top Cat Litter Boxes

As rated by finicky cat lovers...

1. Whisker City Cat Jumbo Two Compartment Litter Pan

Whisker City Cat Jumbo Litter Pan

This cat litter box is the most popular one here. It receives rave reviews for it's size and quality. It boasts a 30 pound cat litter capacity! This big-boy was made with large and multiple-cat households in mind.

Pet owner review comment:

"This very large litter box is wonderful...just make sure you have the room for it. I have 3 cats and 6 litter boxes, I have a very large male cat (18 lbs) and originally bought it for him, but all my cats use this box, in fact it is the only box they have been using since I bought it. It is not as sturdy or thick as a smaller litter box, not sure why. I do like the two pockets but they could be larger, they are great to hold bags for the kitties waste."

Another review comment:

"This is the best litter box that I have ever purchased. It has no corners where wet litter can accumulate. The curved surface makes cleaning very easy. The size of the box is perfect and keeps litter from being scattered on the floor. I have a pet charity that does cat rescue and adoptions. It used to take me 45 minutes to clean all of the litter boxes. It now takes less than 15 minutes. I have recommended it to other fosters in our group and they all love it."

2. Omega Paw Cat Litter Box

Omega Cat Litter Box

Introducing the wildly popular Omega Paw self-cleaning litter box. With the fabulous reviews it gets, it is a true bargain, with a reasonable price tag. It uses a roll-away method, no electricity or filters.

For those who have considered an automatic litter box but have been discouraged by prices, this might be the perfect choice.

This unit recieves an average rating of 4.5 stars, based on 387 reviews and counting! That is a lot of reviews, because this is a best seller among cat owners.

Pet owner review comment:

"We've had this litter box for 2 months now and absolutely LOVE it!! It takes less than 30 seconds to have a completely clean box and disposal of the waste is a breeze....

The cats had no problem getting used to the box. It works exactly as advertized and is actually easier to clean than we had expected. We highly recommend this box if you're looking for a quick, easy and mess free way to keep your cat's litter box clean."

PS: Is this for really huge Maine Coon cats? Probably not. We've included it because not all Maine Coons are huge. And this box is so well-loved. Also, you will want more than one box in the house anyway.

3. NATURE'S MIRACLE High Sided Cat Litter Box

Nature's Miracle Cat Litter Box

Our favorite litter box is almost identical to this one. Leo loves how big it is, and I love how deep it is. It has a nice smooth bottom for easy scooping, too.

With the super high sides, and easy entrance/exit, I find clean up a breeze, and stray kitty litter is reduced.

With an average 4+ star review, this simple box does the job.

Pet owner review comments:

"I bought two, one for each cat, but I probably could have used one as they are very spacious litter boxes. They make it so much better for my two babies and I don't have to clean them twice a day."

"I was having a hard time finding a hoodless litter box with sides that I considered high enough. When I first found this, I thought it felt a bit flimsy, but it's held up well! My cat is a litter box-scratcher, and this has sustained a few good scratches since we got it, but I don't imagine it needs to be replaced for awhile. It washes out nicely when I change the litter, and it doesn't hold odours! We're really quite happy with it"

4. NATURE'S MIRACLE Advanced Hooded Cat Litter Box

Hooded Cat Litter Box

For those who prefer a covered cat litter box, reviewers conclude this large box is a solid choice. A covered box can be the perfect solution for a cat who likes to dig and make a mess, at a reasonable price.

Pet owner review comment:

"I bought this because one of my cats is pretty large (20 pounds) and there aren't many covered boxes on the market for the big cats. I've had mine well over a year and it's worked great and no issues. Again, the large space inside is perfect for my cats--highly recommend it. Cats need a good amount of space inside to do their business/feel comfortable. I will be buying a new one very soon--highly recommend!"

5. Petmate Hi-Back Cat Litter Pan

Petmate Hi-Back Cat Litter Pan

This attractive model gets solid reviews. The high sides make for less mess.

It's a good solid choice for multi cat households.

Pet owner review comment:

"I have 3 young indoor cats in the 12# range each, so we're talking a lot of bodily waste. This tub is easy to clean with its rounded corners and I like the higher sides. I do have to make sure that there's 3" or so of litter inside to prevent the clumps sticking to the corners. Other than that, nice product for the price."

6. Iris Cat Litter Box

Iris Cat Litter Box

Another top choice for a covered style. This one features a clear top for viewing the "status" inside, as well as removable swing door and paw-cleaning grid. This litter box offers a hinge top for easier access and a waste tray. A litter scoop is included.

Pet owner review comment:

"I have three of these boxes and generally usually only use one at a time unless we go away. Our cat is 15-lbs and has no problem with this box. The litter catcher is not very functional as he steps over it both entering and exiting the box. So I've put the cat carpet from 3M in front and that works wonders. The box hold a sufficient amount of litter and cleans up easily with soap and water. I did take the door flap off as my cat is long and his head sticks out so without the door he doesn't mind. I would have opted for a larger box but this just fits under my powder room sink. I would recommend this product it has held up well for over 3-years at the time of this rating comment."

We've included a variety of cat litter boxes, to suit the needs of every household. There are large, extra large and jumbo selections. If you have a Maine Coon kitten, you'll soon find him outgrowing a standard size litter box!

You'll want one box per cat, plus one extra. Many cats don't like to share cat litter boxes. The mats are extra handy at keeping the litter "contained", especially if you are using natural cat litter.

For much more on the subject, check out our page on Litter Box Care. It deals with choosing a type of box, where to place it, and much more.

Cat litter boxes are no one's favorite chore, but hopefully this selection will get you on your way to making it as tidy and painless as possible!
