Catit Hooded Cat Litter Pan – The Absolute Best Litter Box Ever

Posted: September 28, 2020 by Anita

You’ve come to the right place. Your search for the best litter box is over.  Get ready to throw out your cat’s horrible leaky, smelly cat litter box because I’m about to let you in on a little secret.

Well, it’s not really a secret.  I’ve mentioned this cat litter box before in a couple of blog articles.

But it just dawned on me that I’ve not dedicated a whole article on this extraordinary piece of litter box perfection! And trust me when I tell you the Catit Jumbo Hooded Cat Litter Pan is the best litter box ever.

What I love about the Catit Hooded Litter Box

Any cat owner knows that getting the right litter box is so important. The Catit Hooded Litter Box is the right and perfect litter box.

Do you have more than one cat?  The Catit Jumbo Hooded Litter Box is the perfect multi-cat litter box.  Especially if you don’t have space for multiple litter boxes – you just need one Catit Jumbo Hooded Litter Box.  It is the best litter box for multiple cats.

Here’s what I love about Catit Jumbo Hooded Litter Box:

  • plenty of space for your cat to turn around and do the business.  Even if your cat is a bit claustrophobic – the hooded feature will make your cat feel comfortable in this space.
  • Don’t have to take off the hooded top to scoop out used litter.  I’m super lazy so being able to get the unpleasantries done without a lot of fuss is excellent.
  • Theo loves tossing litter everywhere once he does the do.  This large cat litter box gives him plenty of space to kick up litter with only a small amount ending up outside of the litter box.  The Gorilla Grip XL Jumbo Cat Litter catches most of the excess litter and the what little that ends up on my carpet I vacuum up.
  • This litter box is very sturdy.

Although the Catit Jumbo Hooded Litter Box is perfect for the most part, there are some flaws that I feel I must point out:

  • For some reason, there’s been a couple of times (I’ve purchased this litter box about 5-6 times for me, family, and friends); a locking mechanism was missing.  I’ve noticed in a couple of reviews on Amazon that others have experienced this as well.
  • Due to a possible missing locking mechanism, picking up the litter box by its carrying handle can cause the bottom of it to drop if you need to move it.  I suggest finding the right spot for the litter box and not moving it.  You will want to grasp the litter box by both sides or support the bottom when moving it.
  • The front door is more like a trap door, so your cat might have problems getting out of the litter box. With some practice, your cat might eventually learn how to get out of it properly.  I leave the front door up and out of the way for Theo (he was so little when he first started using this box, and I didn’t want him to get trapped).
  • The jumbo version is so huge you literally can fit a small child inside of it.  There is a smaller version that might be a better fit for your space
  • Since the pandemic, I’ve noticed a massive flux in the price (price gouging – which sucks).  And sometimes Amazon runs out of them.  Please don’t pay any more than $30 for it – where ever you may purchase it.

Lastly, I’m so in love with this litter box that I don’t see myself purchasing any other brand – unless they stop making them.  I hope they don’t stop making them because I would be totally crushed. 🙂
