i've been trying to figure this out for awhile now but i'm getting closer.
okay, don't like the american fp, kind of like the nz one but the oz-pet one is what i'd buy. IF (i have a friend who lives in australia and he's checking for me. or supposed to be anyway. i might just call them myself lol.) it won't cost me $120 for a litter box. i'm kind of exaggerating but it's $60 for the box itself and i know shipping from there to the states is pretty expensive. i know it's more just because of inflation but if i want a covered ready-made one, that's my only choice.
as far as figuring out if i can retrofit my booda domes, yes, i could. i actually took all the litter out of them and tried it out. it's fantastic. the first pan just sits in the bottom one and then the top half fits on to the second bottom, no problem.
i also did a not-very-well-thought-out experiment. i have a lot of those hospital basins. so i thought i should see how i'm going to get holes in one. i was going to use a hot knitting needle but i decided against that. then i found a nail and a hammer, but all that happened when i tried to make holes was that it split. then i got the bright idea that if the cracks weren't huge holes, the sawdust could still fall through. well, it does, sort of, if you have two weeks to sit there and shake it.
if i find them on sale they'll be about $25 but i don't want to make a mess of the holes. i figure i'll start with one and see how that goes. but my question is, what do i drill the holes with? and if it's with an electric drill, anyone know what size drill-bit?
at least now i know the bottoms work.
