The bench was more of a dark cherry color, which was actually a plus because it doesn't look out of place the living room. It is very sturdy, good quality for the price & it was easy to assemble. But I do recommend attaching the doors when the bench is in the location where it will stay, because the doors become off center when picked up & moved. An extra large, hooded litter box fits perfect inside without the divider. It works great for hiding the litter box in plain site & minimizes odors. I still place a container of 'Pet Odor Absorber' in the bench to help eliminate any kitty odors in the room. I have multiple cats & I bought a second bench after seeing there wasn't any issues with the cats going in it to use the litter box. I did leave the doors off the bench until I was confident the cats were comfortable using the litter box inside of it.
I bought this litter box for my two newly-adopted adult kitties. They took to it right away. You do need to use a good quality clumping litter; I have the same minor complaint about it not picking up all of the small clumps of "poo," but that's not a big problem. After it was in use for about a week, it did start making some noise off and on, and I haven't yet discovered why, but this isn't a problem because of where I have it located. Overall, this is a great, self-cleaning litter box, and I would recommend it.
Finally! Something cute for the stinky cat box. I searched for a white one & couldn't find one less than $200 until Overstock once again came through. It's not real wood of course, moving it around isn't recommended unless you pick it up from the bottom. Simple assembly, if I can do it, anyone can. Arrived in excellent shape, nicely packed. Get one! :)
With this item I can keep the cats from kicking litter all over the room and it helps control the dust throughout the house. It's easy to wipe down and what little litter makes its way out I just use the broom to pick it up. Looks good in the room and I had no problem with the cats getting used to it. The only trouble I had with this item was trying to put it together by myself, but I got it done by doing one step just a little differently than the instructions said to do. It looks good in the computer room and I now keep their food and water bowls on top of this piece on a little mat. I love it, the cats love it, so all here are happy.
