Be Careful During Assembly
Kimiko from LOUISVILLE, KY– Verified Buyer
I bought this product in white and have been mostly pleased with the product. The size, color, and description online were all accurate representation of the final finished product. My cat continued using her box, even after it was hidden, without interruption. The staggered door does keep more of the tracked litter off the floor, but not all.
A little clumsy to clean but nice hideaway
Cori from Hyde Park, MA– Verified Buyer
This bench turned out to be nicer looking than we expected, which was a nice surprise. The cat seems to like it and it definitely hides both the litter box and its odors quite well. Two things we don't love: 1) there's nothing to keep the top open while you're cleaning out the litterbox, so you end up sort of propping it open with your head while scooping poo (my husband says he thinks there was a piece missing in our package so maybe it's supposed to have a piece here and we just never received it?) 2) it's a bit cramped so a bigger kitty can end up peeing over the side and leaving a pretty awful mess under the box which I imagine will eventually sink into the wood. We have dealt with this by cutting up a trash bag, putting it under the box, and taping it to the 3 doorless inner sides of the litterbox. There are still puddles every cleaning but at least they're on the plastic and not the wood.

We have two cats who have always used an open litter box. We weren't really sure how our cats would respond to now using an enclosed box. Before I even had construction complete the cats were inside having a nap! I placed a heavy duty industrial mat inside both compartments to catch any litter, so far so good! They've been using it for 3 days and I haven't had to clean up any litter, which was our main purpose of purchasing this. The directions weren't the easiest to follow but it was straight forward assembly I didn't really need the instructions. There's options for left or right openings.
Perfect Litter Box
steven from ventura, CA– Verified Buyer
We don't have too much space in our home for a litter box to be hidden. The bathrooms are too small and we don't like the idea of having the litter box out in the open or in a bedroom because of the odor and appearance. So we came across this litter box. The fact that it looks like a piece of furniture was the reason we liked it so much. We have it in a hallway and it looks just like a bench or end table. It is much more pleasant to look at than a regular litter box.
Cat loves it, we love it!

We got this litter box a few weeks ago and as soon as we set it up our cat started using it! I was worried that it looked sort of small, but it must be okay because he loves it!
Great litter box enclosure
Jenn from Cape Cod, MA– Verified Buyer
This is a wonderful way to hide a litter box in any room. It looks great. Wish I'd had a second person to help put it together. There are significant gaps where sides meet or where sides meet bottom. But applying contact paper inside to make interior cleaning easier (as some reviewers suggested) is an effective way to close the gaps so there is no leakage. My new kitten started using the box I put in the enclosure right away. No problems at all. I did not install the interior wall as I wanted a bigger box and more room for the kitten as he grows. Highly recommended. Wish it could serve as a bench to sit on.
Solved Our Problems
sara from denver, CO– Verified Buyer
Really helps keep litter from being tracked outside of the box. Very sturdy, but we glued all the joints anyway. Our cat started using it right away. We also put white contact paper on the floor inside and on the top. Now the cat can jump on top where her food and water are and the inside is more water proof and easy to wipe out. I looked at a lot of covered litter box options and this is the right one !
Practical & functional!
Madeleine from Amesbury, MA– Verified Buyer
Love this piece of furniture! Quick delivery. So easy to put together and sturdy. I opted not to add the inside partition as it is roomier for my extra large kitty without it. I lined the interior with vinyl contact paper for easy clean up of overspray. My cats tends to overspray even in the high sided litter box. Both cats went in and used immediately. The sturdy hinged lid makes cleaning the box a breeze. So glad I purchased.
Kitty and I are happy with it
Anne from Ft. Pierce, FL– Verified Buyer
The directions were great and it looks great too but many of my screws would not go in all the way witch was disappointing. Also the slow close bracket for the top of the bench was a pain in my butt. I ended up leaving it off because it was going to break the hinges that the top attached too. Granted that may be due to my never putting one of those on before but it was also disappointing. I would skip that step if I were you. Everything said and done it serves the purpose and looks a million times better than a dirty old litter box, and it does hold back a majority of the residual litter. I would buy it again. I got the Espresso finish and it has a classier look because you can see the faux wood grain, I almost went with black and am happy I chose the Espresso.

I am very pleased with this product. I wanted to hide my cats' litter pans and keep them from tracking so much litter onto the floor. They still track some out, but it's much, much less. I haven't put any kind of mat inside it yet, but that may help with the bit of litter still being tracked out when I do. It was quick and easy to assemble as well. The only drawback is that the lid doesn't always want to stay open while I'm cleaning it, which makes it a little awkward. Also, keep in mind that you can't set it very close to a wall because of the way the top of the lid is designed. Overall, I'm very happy with it. I'm considering getting another one for a different room.
