We’ve got 4 cats. The two males are rather large (big not fat). The largest is 2-3x the smallest, all fully grown. We also have a dog. Incidentally, this means that the boxes in the past needed to be of the covered type. One of them is uncovered and in a place that the can’t get to. So the largest cat, and maybe some of the other ones preferentially prefer the uncovered one at least 99.9999% of the time. It is getting to the point where we might have to stop using the uncovered one and move the (new) litter box, and so I need a replacement that he will use instead of pissing on the bathmat or weird corners :(.
The covered boxes I have are basically like this. The dog is a standard Dachshund, so pretty short but tenacious. Some of the open boxes with high walls might work except they usually have a low lip on one side.
Basically I need one where he won’t feel so confined. A very large covered one may work, but I wouldn’t know without pulling that trigger. Do large cats like top entry? Or any advice about getting big cats in there? Can they easily be trained to do so?
Easy to clean is nice. I prefer using a shovel; I don’t like sifting ones that require 3x as many steps and I don’t need a self-cleaning one.
