We are rating our new litterbox=^Y^=
Here is Mom's rating.....B, why?
(Momz turn) Toy likes to just jump in the pan which, popped the lever off the lock so the cradled pan moved. Toy liked it but that is not how it should be so I put scissors in front of where it came off of the lock. (not really a big deal)
Under the cradled pan is a wide funnel where the dirty litter goes but.....since two of the Boyz, (identity with held) pee on the wall of the pan lid a second problem occurred. The pee would trickle down past the back of the drawer where it just lined up with the funnel, then (yuck) go down the back of the drawer to the bottom of the unit where it would go out the opening on the slide bar for the drawer that holds the dirty litter!! Do these designers even own a cat???? It is a great idea but not fully thought out or tested with male cats, that's for sure!!!
Any who, I had to tape the long hole closed with Tyvek tape and put a piece of Tyvek tape on the funnel back bottom, (not attached to the drawer), to get the pee to go into the pan. WORKS!!! ...(light bulb!)The drawer pan should flare our more to fix that problem.
Sounds like a bit of work but after getting used to how I had to tweak it, no time at all. My laundry room is right off my kitchen so I look in on the pan an just pull the lever (handle) back and forth so the next Boy doesn't have to step into yuck and I don't have to scoop all day! Of all the pans out there, (and I have tried most) this is the best!! ;)
