Things I Am Loving – ModKat Litterbox

 

So I’m a bit embarrassed about this one.

I haven’t had pets since Bubbles the goldfish committed spectacular suicide by throwing himself out of his bowl when I was a kid, so I’ve launched myself into the world of pet accoutrements with some trepidation.

When you acquire cats, the very next thing you need to buy is a litter box, and if you’ve been in the market for litterboxes recently, you’ll know that, although they come in all shapes and sizes, they have one thing in common.  They’re all remarkably, hideously ugly.

With one exception that I’ve been able to find.

The Modkat litter box is the iPhone of litterboxes – a cool piece of thoughtful modern design, and available in an array of contemporary colours to match your decor or your cat.

The cat climbs inside the box to do its business and then has to walk on the litter catching tray on top to get out, so excess litter is caught and it reduces tracking and mess to a minimum.  It comes with a sturdy reusable tarpaulin liner and an integral scoop that clips to the side.

I’m a firm believer in making sure that things that will be on display in the house are as nice to look at as possible (especially for something like this which we will hopefully have for the next fifteen-twenty years), so of course I bought one.  Even though it costs $180.  Yep, $180 just to buy a litterbox that is well-designed and doesn’t look like sh*t as well as smell like it. 

Fortunately we love it. It’s big and sturdy, looks great, is super easy to clean and does a great job of reducing litter mess to an absolute minimum. Which is a good job as I think we’re going to have to get two – Harriet refuses to do her business anywhere near where Flora has been.

But why does good design have to be so freaking expensive?  Am I crazy or would you buy this litter box too? 

If you’re tempted, you can buy the litterboxes at Modkat.com or with free shipping at Nest Living.

You already know what I think about ModKat so I'll say no, you are not crazy and yes, absolutely. Get a second one, pronto. And now, about the PeiPod... ;)

That's for an upcoming post...

Love it! I'd buy it :)

You can't imagine how comforting it is to know that I'm not the only nutter round here..

That is the hippest litter box I've ever seen!

I do have a few questions though. Is it well ventilated? and is there enough room for the cat to comfortably move around in there?

Those are probably my only concerns because those are the things my cat is fussy about, otherwise I'd definitely purchase one!

(and you are not crazy...I'm heavily considering buying my cat a water fountain...)

Hi Jesse,

It's definitely well-ventilated. It's difficult to see in the photos above but the lockable lid has one large hole for the cat to get in and out and then is full of small holes, for ventilation and so that tracked litter can fall back into the box. However, it does seem to contain the smell a little.

As for size, it's bigger than I was expecting. The best picture is probably of the red box where you can see its size relative to a dining chair. There's also a cute video on the Modkat website which shows a cat using the box.

It's a very trendy litter box. Lovely pics of the cats!

Okay, one, your cats are SUPER CUTE! Two, I'd totally buy this. Hell, I bought a scooping litterbox at one point that was almost as expensive (had to ditch it though since my Maine Coon made poops too large to be scooped automatically!). I think this box would work great as long as you keep up with daily cleaning; our cats were known to use the floor if the box was too smelly. God rest them all... (Hey, two giant dogs is enough poop for me now!)

Your cat looks lovable, and he was a little funny. Where can I possibly purchase that ModKat Litterbox? Is there any much bigger than that? And that litterbox, that was nice. I will be purchasing that one.

I'm going home tonight to take a pick, i'm very excited about this (clearly you see how sad and crazy i am about shoes.) Will post the picture
