Iris Oval Top Entry Cat Litter Box

Am now the proud owner of 3 of these boxes. Two cats, three boxes. This became a necessity that I hoped wasn’t necessary, but alas, it was! You can read more about how this all came about here. But more importantly the top entry box was a must. I used a box, well it was actually a bin. It worked just fine for some of my sharp shooter stand up cats. They would get in the box, turn around a few times. face out and would pee on the back.


All was great, until Lily came to live with us in December 2020. The breeder told me she uses top entry litter boxes for all cats and kittens as she had a few standers over the years. So I decided why not try some high-sided storage boxes. They were wide open with lots of room and reasonable priced. Picked them up at Lowe’s. Everything was working fine, until one day when Lucy was watching Lily pee and then went over to stiff out the edge of the box. Lily had grown a little taller and with the litter in the bottom, she hit the top holes in the box when she was against the back edge. So now I have two storage bins that are no longer litter boxes!


Lucy had been using a high-sided box by the time I picked her up at 4 months old. Being little didn’t affect her ability to pop in and out of the box. I have been using these boxes for 2 years and they look just as good as the day they arrived. I don’t use the scooper, only because I already have a longer handled one. Scooper looks sturdy enough, but a longer handle would have made me switch.


So I read a comment of one cat getting it’s paw stuck in one of the larger holes. I think it is sort of like how that one kid is always finding trouble without really trying. A broken arm, stepping on a rusty nail, falling off a swing, yet most other kids can be quite successful making it to adulthood with normal mishaps.


Some cats have been able to not raise too much of a ruckus in the litter box and were able to keep the litter confined, with a bit of litter in the top tray. Well mine still do toss litter out. I guess getting it between their toes and leaping quickly out. I do have a bit of a mess, but it is better than a short box.
