Need Help Finding A High Back Litter Boxes

I need a high back litter box. Our cat tends to stand when he pees so we need a box with a high back. I have tired covered boxes but they leak where the parts attach to each other. Do any of you have any recommendations for both a regular litter pan and a covered one? Thanks!

My litter box isn't sold very many places, but I have one called NVR miss. Link:http://nvrmiss.com/index.php?cPath=15

It works fantastic, but I think my two cats still favor their larger storage box instead as they tend to use it more often. It's cheaper, too, and sold almost anywhere. I got a sterilite box from Home Depot for like $7, but I don't have an opening for it as my kitties are young and tend to hop over anyway. If your kitty is older, you may think of using a Rubbermaid box instead as it's easier to cut. I've heard folks sandpapering the rough edges after using an exacto knife to cut out the opening. You could also "duct tape" the edges too, but I think some bits of litter would stick eventually, and it would bother the heck out of me.

Van ness high sides does a pretty good littler pan
The GIANT size measures: L-21.25"x W-17.25"x H-10.35"


I have one I use for the upstairs, I got it primarily because I didn't want a lot of litter chucking over the sides. It works very well and the girls have no issues stepping into the box.

You can find Van ness pretty much anywhere, Amazon, or loads of pet stores online. It might even be sold in some of the pet shops you frequent.

Thanks for your suggestions. I think I need a one piece litter box because it leaks if there is a lid on it. Since he was a kitten he has always tended to stand up when he pees . If you have any other suggestions please let me know. Thanks.

I second? Third? The Rubbermaid container like post #2. The extra size is nice for the cats, and it is all one piece so peeing in the seams isn't an issue. They come in all kinds of colors to match decor. Cut a hole in one side and leave the lid on or off, depending on if you like covered or uncovered boxes.

And to add to Chloe's post, you can also put the lid under the hole to catch any dribbles or oopsies! :p

Petco makes a very nice high sided box. I have 4 but I don't see it on their website.
