Question What type of litter box do you use?

As of right now I'm using 2 separate boxes for my 2 cats, but I'd like to just get 1 big one and be done with it. Having 2 is annoying. Not to mention they aren't big. I know some peoples cats here are picky and will only use a very clean litter box but my cats don't seem to care. I scoop both boxes once a day.

Anyways, what type of litter box do you use?

I wish I could afford something awesome like the Litter Robot, WAY too expensive though.

I HATE scooping litter more than anything. I'd love to get a sifting box, but I haven't found a good one. The Omega Paw one you roll looked promising until I read reviews about poop getting stuck in the grid and things like that. Now I'm back to square one trying to find a box.

Corner Litterboxes W/lid

They have litter boxes that go in corners now. They are much bigger, I found mine at petsmart. They kind of look like a triangle and have lids .. very nice because my male cat would always poop in the back corner and miss out of the side of the box.

covered - the girls want their privacy and the litter box they have indoors is in a very busy utility room. Mostly they go outside, behind a tree or bush.

Uncovered - the girls tend to like to know who's around them and keep half an eye on everyone around in case of any sneak attacks during their vulnerable moment.

I don't mind scooping so I just use the standard box. Mine has the attachment around the upper rim so that kicked litter has less of a chance to travel outside the box.

I don't know if it would be better than scooping, but you can buy sifting liners that you pull out instead of having to scoop.

If you're getting a single litter box for two cats, I would recommend the jumbo-sized Whisker City one. I have the smaller sized one, and even though I have two boxes (the other one is smaller), both of my cats prefer using the Whisker city one 95% of the time. I may eventually get rid of my other one and get the jumbo one myself

Ohhh I should also point out, it has to have a lid/cover. I don't like seeing exposed litter, and the cats don't mind the lid.

I use the Breeze system. Uncovered, but easy to clean and does not stink! However it may be a little small for two grown cats.

I would ask how well your data use the same box, though. Mine prefer their own, and with one box I had lots of messes around the house.

My cats used the same box before, but I was under the notion that 2 cats = you MUST have 2 litter boxes. Honestly I think it's bull. My family growing up always had only 1 box for our 2 cats. I even have a friend who uses 1 box on her 3 cats; now I think that's pushing it.

I think it all depends on your cats and how picky they are.

I have several large covered ones. Two of them are the "sifting" kind, but honestly, it's such a hassle (mainly because the litter is so heavy, and it's really not that easy to pickup and sift, and switch pans, etc.). I just scoop. A lot.

Homemade litter boxes.
Got two big 45 gallon rubbermaid bins and cut a hole in the side.
I'd like to get some clear ones but I haven't found any that are tall enough.
