Kitty Condo Bench
Leigh from Cliffside Park, NJ – Verified Buyer
I love this thing. So does my cat. It has plenty of room for a large littler box and space for my scooper, bags and extra litter. It is strong enough to sit on (and I am not a small person). The best part is that it looks like a nice piece of furniture with clean lines and if it is set up so you can't see the kitty entrance, no one knows there is a litter box in the living room. Well done on this item. I do suggest the following. Get someone to help you put it together. It is doable with one person, but not easy to fit the top down on the base without extra hands. I also suggest you calk the cracks between the base and the walls of the box. It will keep the litter out of the cracks. Thank you!

I researched and looked at several litterbox enclosures and finally chose this one. It's longer than most of the enclosures I saw on line and fit a larger/longer oval shaped litterbox perfectly. I did line the inside with contact paper just in case there was any spillage or accidents that didn't make it into the litterbox. I also put a very small litterbox at the cat entrance so it would collect any litter before stepping out, it has worked perfectly. We put the box together which was easy and quick according to my husband and left it out and left the doors open do the cats could investigate and get use to it before placing the litterbox in it. We then out it in the designated spot and left one side of the doors open do the cats could see the box fir a coue days then closed it. The cats adjusted well and we are very happy with this product. Looks like a nice peace of furniture. Would purchase another if needed.
works as advertised
Scott from Minneapolis, MN – Verified Buyer
Product arrived undamaged and well packaged. I feel like the delivery turnaround time was very short, especially since it was free shipping. Assembly of product was fairly straightforward and could be done mostly with one person (attaching the doors may require an extra set of hands). I had to drill a pilot hole that was missing for one of the connector bolts which wasn't a huge deal, but would have been a problem for someone without the tools or know-how. The wood looks nice and high quality, though I wouldn't put excessive weight on top even though it is advertised as a "bench". I would recommend using a shorter litterbox - we have one with slightly higher walls and the clearance through the hole would be difficult if our cat wasn't as small as she is. The ordering experience, delivery, and product quality all met or exceeded my expectations.

Item arrived within two days! Assembling easy, nice to have a helping hand for some people. Large-fits my jumbo 21,5 long, 17,5" wide litter box easily with about 2,5" gap between the entrance and the litter pan. Fits also 10"x15" size tidy cats litter bucket (35lb), all with the divider installed. I personally like to sit and scoop the litter by reaching in the door opening and slide the litter box for cleaning, instead of scooping bending over and lifting up the heavy litter pan to get it out like it was with my previous litter box furniture. Color is very close to the picture, but if this is a major issue, be aware that the shade is darker, deeper than in the pic. Cats accepted it easy. My previous litter box furniture was from Designer Pets. It lasted about 8 Years and it was still Ok. I am happy with it and think the sizing is intelligent for storage of both a large pan and spare litter
Eliminates Litter Scatter
Kelly from AUSTIN, TX – Verified Buyer
This is a God-send and the answer to my frustrated prayers. I've lived with ugly litter boxes and horrible dirty litter scatter and dust all over my hard floors for 3 years. I've been so frustrated and miserable with the situation. This is my solution. It's wonderful because it doesn't look like cat furniture -- It looks like a high quality bench. Nobody knows it's a litter box! I have a high-walled litter box inside so that the cats don't accidentally spray outside the litter box and hit the wood (I read that happened to some buyers and warps the wood). I put down a scratching post inside the bench in-between the opening and the litter box for the litter to drop off of the cats feet before they exit. I have eliminated 99% of all litter scatter on my hard floors. It is truly AMAZING. I don't smell the litter box, I don't inhale litter dust and the cats like it. CONS: The top does come off if you lift it up from the top. So, when I move them I always lift it from the bottom. Also, the magnetic door latch isn't reliable. My cats have pushed the doors open a few times. I'll need to find a solution for this eventually. Truly though, for the price I paid I am incredibly satisfied with the value I am getting from this. My life is changed for the better. I bought 4 boxes. 2 are downstairs and 2 are upstairs. I bought two dark-wood and two white-wood. Both colors are gorgeous. BEST cat purchase of my life. Truly. I've wanted something like this for a long time and I thank God I've finally found it. It is easy to scoop the litter box inside -- I scoop it daily with my Litter Genie. I don't know how easy this is to put together -- My husband put all 4 of mine together for me, and I wasn't there when he did it. He did a great job and I am completely satisfied with them. He's not a carpenter or anything, so I'd imagine this wasn't too difficult to assemble. Pros: Great Value; Beautiful; Looks High Quality; Doesn't look like a litter box; Eliminates litter scatter; Eliminates litter dust; Conceals litter odor; Cats love it; Easy to scoop litter inside by opening the doors. Cons: Magnetic door latch isn't reliable; top lifts off
Not Quite as Adverstised
Michael from Orchard Park, NY – Verified Buyer
This is a decent kitty condo. We bought this particular brand mainly because the walnut wood version matched our furniture. I have one criticism, and one complaint/warning: The criticism is that it is awkward to bend over and scoop litter out the box from the side without taking the litter box completely out of the cabinet each time. A hinged top would be soooo much easier. The complaint is that the advertised dimensions are not correct. It is actually a couple of inches shorter inside than what they say. Depending on the size of your cat, say a good size male, he might not be able to sit upright in the box.
This additional piece of furniture was exactly as the photo and description indicated.
Bette from Lincoln, CA – Verified Buyer
It arrived in fine shape in 3 days and was very easy to assemble. (I'm 70, but fairly mechanically inclined). A prior comment said the holes were not bored large enough on the top. I found the stain and finish had dried over the hole reducing the size, so just inserting a screwdriver ( or drill bit) and reaming this deposit out. The post and latch mechanisms supplied were great and easy to use. (they were the same as what larger weight bearing items like carpet sample racks use) I left off the doors and let my spoiled Persian explore for one evening, then added the litter box day 2, and finished assemble the third day. Everyone thinks it is a new end table and most of all the top has become the cats favorite place to sleep. This was my first purchase and I made the decision from the description, photo, weight, and reviews.
Great product, exactly as shown.
Shereen from CALGARY, AB – Verified Buyer
We purchased the Kitty Condo Bench a month ago. It was easy to put together, and our cat is using it without any problems. There's still a small amount of litter sprayed onto the floor, as he's a vigorous kicker, but it does the job of camouflaging the litter box in our small space very well. In addition, the parts are all solid wood, no pressboard or MDF, which makes it much easier to clean and less likely to absorb odors and any possible spills. My one small quibble is that it uses those quarter-turn self-tightening flanges to hold the whole thing together, and they loosened significantly over the past month, such that the box has become a bit wobbly. The instructions warn against over-tightening, but I guess I need to retighten with a bit more force this time. As I said, a very small quibble.
Works well, especially with contact paper
Ashley from Orinda, CA – Verified Buyer
Took a while to put together, but works great. DEFINITELY line it with contact paper before letting kitty use it - even a high walled litter box can't contain one oopsie! Our cat figured it out really quickly - we left the door ajar for a few days before shutting it, just in case though. And she has two litterboxes so sometimes she uses the other, but she definitely knows where this one is, and even likes hanging out in there sometimes (I took out the divider so there's a big space in front of the litterbox). Weirdo!
Awesome Quality! Easily Put Together
D.W. from Colorado Springs, CO – Verified Buyer
I highly reccommend this Kitty Bench for anyone looking for a way to conceal a litterbox. It was SO easy to put together and I did it by myself even though it suggests two people for one of the steps and I'm pretty tiny at only 5'1. My cat seems to love it already even though I don't have a litterbox in there yet she just goes in there and hangs out. It is also very easy to move once you have assembled it. It looks great, very sturdy, and is actually a nice accent piece in any room! I added a runner on the top and put pictures on it and it looks fantastic! It arrived very quickly and wasn't damaged in any way. WELL worth the price!
