I bought this item as a pet bed/nightstand combo for my cat and small dog, and it does the job admirably. It is beautiful, sturdy, and is much nicer in person than it looks in the picture. I put it together in a little less than a half hour, and the instructions were very detailed and easy to understand. I'll be purchasing another.
A quick warning though: it is a very, very dark espresso in color; nearly black. That works out well for me, but I can imagine someone being less than thrilled if they were expecting something that was a true brown and opened the box to see this.
This product was exactly what I needed. I moved into a house that did not have a space available for my litter box that was out if sight of company and daily living. I had to put the litter box into my office and didn't want it to be obvious to others. I looked through many websites and pet stores for something but couldn't find anything but the plastic covered litter boxes that look like a litter box. I wanted something that looked nice and still functioned well. I have always had an automatic litter box but the latest one I bought never performed as well as the older models so I found myself always having to hand clean the litter box. When we moved and realized that we needed another option I knew I would be hand cleaning the box. When I found this product it was available from other sites but I could not pass up the price offered along with free shipping. My husband and I put it together in about a half an hour with absolutely no issues. It looked exactly like the picture and the size was perfect. It looks really good in the office and no one notices that it is a litter box. I read some of the other reviews and took some suggestions from other customers. I bought a piece of outdoor carpet and cut it to fit in the small compartment to catch any litter from the paws and a battery operated motion light to stick inside and that really helps when cleaning it too. I also bought some puppy training pads to put under the litter box to help with any spills that might occur. I left the lid open a few days until my cat got used to it. I also kept the other litter box in the room for a few days just to make sure there were no accidents and my cat never used the old one and went right into the new one. This was a great investment and I am so happy with my purchase.
Great quality product. Every cat owner should have one. I'm not sure about the review complaining of litter mess, I have had no problems in that area. Every once in a while a piece of litter may come out that I figure was stuck in my cats foot, but I also purchased a litter mat that picks it up when my cat exits. It is really not a problem for me.
It is exactly what I expected which is good. Don't kid yourself, it looks like a very over-sized, boring cat condo, but it hides the litter box and that is what I got it for. I keep it under the window so it doubles as a window bench (about 4 inches shy of the windowsill.
One thing I wanted to know before buying (but took my chances) were the interior dimensions. So here you go! The walls are ~2" thick and I measured the interior dimensions as 17"wide by ~28.5 long. The height is 16"closed.
The cats like it, all 3 use it (at different times) and 1 has taken ownership of the top, loving laying in the sun. So I would call it a success.
