We have had our Out of Sight Litter Box for about a year now, and my gosh is it wonderful!
We have two Cats, Reggie and Ophelia and recently purchased an Out of Sight box in December 2017 as a Holiday gift for ourselves (and our backs!) and we all love it! It took a short while for them to get used to, but we are now purchasing a second OOSLB, we figure If they each have their own Out of Sight box then we will all be happy! This is a MUST HAVE for wall-to-wall carpeting home and will REALLY make the chore of litter cleaning way quicker and cleaner! Saves so much time every day and every week from having to vacuum litter!
Our Cats names are Max & Ruby. We love the out of sight litter box/furniture. Our home is not very big and it was the perfect solution for us. The furniture gives us the option of having the box out in the open but only we know what is in there. Worth every penny, highly recommended!
Thought I would send you a photo of "Oliver's Condo" installed in the RV. While I liked the latch you provided, I added another one because I was pretty sure it would not stay closed on the road. The cabinet is tied through the base onto the bolts that held the sofa we removed, to keep is secure. This is a great solution for us because it takes care of the litter box and it’s issues. The storage area lets us store dog stuff and the litter pellets and pads (for the “Breeze Litter System” which fits fine as you had said it would). It is also tall enough that we can leave the cat's food on top and the dogs won't bother it.
After decades of trying different set-ups, this system (Out of Sight Litter Box) is by far the best. As a former zookeeper and lion/tiger trainer, I applaud the excellent design for both cats and caretakers.
Our cats, Morgan, Wrigley and Comiskey love using the Out of Sight Litter Box! I love that I'm not walking on litter and don't have to bend over to clean the litter box anymore.
Found out about your Out of Sight Litter Box a few years ago when I was looking for a discreet litter tracking solution - still love it!
Note: Comment on reorder-form for (wax saturated) High-Sider Litter Boxes.
Our cat's name is Jeune and she LOVES her Out of Sight Litter Box! We love it, too, because it blends in with our furniture so well, no one ever knows there is a litter box in there and makes cleaning and maintenance super easy. Thank you for making such a quality product!
I bought a walnut cabinet in 2013 and still love it!
These wax saturated cardboard litter boxes are THE BEST. We have your well-constructed Out of Sight Litter Box hiding system on our main floor, but use these high-quality cardboard replacement boxes in our basement and the upstairs too. Really great products all around!
I have NEVER written a product review or testimonial before, and that by itself should say a LOT that I am writing one about the Out of Sight Litter Box. It has changed my life!!! No more dreading cleaning the litter—now it’s a snap! No bending, no strain, no hassle. There is no odor, and it looks like a nice piece of furniture, so you can use it in even the smallest of spaces, including a studio apartment. I cannot recommend it enough!!!!
It's been awhile since we have spoken but I wanted to tell you we LOVE the Out of Sight Litter Box and so do the cats! Both cats are using the litter box with no problems and it's litter scatter free thank goodness! Thank you so much for an amazing product, it's really to bad everyone can't have one that owns a cat but they are pricey (worth every penny as long as you have it!). We wish you the best of luck with your business and thanks again so much!
We absolutely love our Out of Sight Litter Box. Thank you!
Peekapoo (our dog) can't get in!
This is the best litter box ever made. I needed something to not only hide the kitty business, but also keep my dog away from said "kitty treats ". At the time we had one cat, but added another to our family this past December. No issues with either cat using the Out of Sight Litter Box on the first try. Recently, I told my vet about Out of Sight and she was really excited to know that this product existed.
Assembled, in place, and in use by the cats that same Saturday! Took both cats a while to bother to look for the way out, other than meowing helplessly, but they got it and have returned on their own since! Took us about an hour and 20 mins to put together. I think a two man job to hold some pieces in place, but really no different than any other put together furniture.I like that they can see light at the top and bottom when they go inside. Best of all - it is helping with the litter tracking!!
This is the best litter box invention. There isn't another out there that even comes close. It is
beautifully made and best of all it keeps my malinois/lab from reaching any 'treats' in the kitty litter which had become extremely problematic. I was hesitant over the price but it is worth every single dollar spent on it! The icing on the cake for me is how easy it is to reach and scoop the litter since I suffer from lower back pain. Thank you so much for designing and selling this stress saver. I am in your debt!
I ordered this litter box several weeks ago, after our new puppy ate kitty litter and had to be hospitalised. This new litter box has been a game changer for our family. We can relax now with out worrying if he is trying to eat more litter. The cats took to the new box in no time. We are so happy with our purchase. Thank you so much!
I was really hesitant about spending this much money on a litter box, but my only regret is not
getting it sooner! This litter box has completely eliminated litter tracking so I'm able to put it in a
room without carpet! It's also a solid piece-- way higher quality than I was expecting! It took about
a week to transition my stubborn cat, with the second litter box next to the cabinet. But once I removed the second litter box he warmed up to it!
I recently ordered a white Out of Sight Litter Box from you. It was actually kind of fun to assemble. It's an engineering marvel. : )
I could see that almost as much thought goes into the packing as the engineering of the litter box.
It was packed very well and is definitely a heavy package, but I had no trouble assembling it by myself. Looks nice in the room, works great for me and the kitties took to it immediately.
I'm very happy with my purchase. Definitely worth the money! The high-sider litter box is great. Mikey digs to China and throws litter everywhere but he can't throw it out of this box. I was also a little concerned about whether they would accept walking over the TraxTurf tracking mats, Dugan has skin sensitivity issues, but no problem there either.
Thank you for sharing your invention - I wish I would have had it years ago.
I have had this litter box for quite awhile (I think almost two years now) for my 4 cats, and I love it. It's easy to clean, the cats liked it immediately. It's built solid and it looks really nice. The company owner is extremely pleasant and easy to work with. I wish I'd known about it earlier.
I'll spare you the picture on Sebastian using it. He doesn't do such a great job covering up
his "business", but not for lack of trying!!! But the cabinet does a great job! LOVE IT!
This is the best idea ever for a litter box. We (my cat and I) love it! At first I was worried my cat
wouldn't use it cause it's something new, but overnight after getting rid of the old litter box she
used it just fine. The best part is no more getting down on the floor to clean kitty deposits!! I like
the little storage cabinet area, and the included odor absorber holder (holds a box of baking soda) absorbs any orders. The directions were great and simple to follow. Thank you so much for this awesome litter box!!
First, may I say how grateful I am that you have designed and decided to sell this ingenious litter box and beautiful piece of furniture. It didn't take my two very large cats, Floyd (22 pounds) and Marley (17 pounds), more than a few moments to explore and then comfortbly use the box. You have solved my dilemma with my big dog and her daily invasion of the old litter box and made it easy for me to scoop since I have battled lower back pain for 30 years. The cats like the new surface to rest on too. I also appreciate the time you gave me when I called you with questions prior to my order. If I was a teacher, you would receive an A+++ for your excellent product and your genuine kindness.
I've had two of these for several years now. I like them because they make cleaning the boxes
much easier by having them higher off the floor and providing convenient access from above.
The cats seem to like them too; they have used them without fail from day one. A friend of
mine who no longer had cats gave her two to her local pet adoption agency. They were
immediately snapped up by the agency director and another agency employee. I recommend
this cat furniture highly. You will not regret your purchase.
As I live in the DC metro area, living space is very tight. I’m currently in 600 square feet and needed a litter box that was concealed. I had high expectations for the Out of Sight Litter Box and they were exceeded on many levels! The instructions are truly step-by-step. It took me a leisurely two hours. I will say that I did use the included caulk twice at the end – I really wanted to seal this box together and prevent any potential issues. The inside litter box is very large with plenty of space for cats. The hidden storage in the cabinet is very large as well and easily fits extra litter, the scooper, and the scoop bags. My 12 week old kittens took to the box quite easily. I kept picking them up and putting them in the litter box and allowed them to find their way out. The jump from the first floor to the second floor was not an issue at all – not even for the tiny kittens. I did keep a second litter pan next to the Out of Sight Litter Box as a precaution the first night, but by the next morning my kittens were choosing to go into the Out of Sight Litter Box. I was delighted! The TraxTurf is beyond awesome at capturing all the loose litter from their paws on their way out of the box. No more tracking!! Thanks for making a superb product!
This is a fantastic litter box system. It WORKS. We have hard floors and no litter bits. You can safely walk barefoot anywhere in the house. The cats have no problem using it, and it's so much easier for me to clean since I don't have to bend over. Assembly was straightforward, with excellent instructions. It was a major purchase, but it was worth every penny, and dealing with Paul was a real pleasure. My laundry room looks much nicer with the Out of Sight Litter Box cabinet instead of an old-style litterbox, and I'm truly happy that I decided to get this system.
We downsized from a house that had options for multiple locations to hide her letterbox. Our new townhouse didn't have any options except on the stairs but I did not want to expose it to our guests. The 'Out of Sight Litter Box' to the rescue. Chloe is very pleased with her new 'private space'. She was initially reluctant and it took a few days to get her used to going in there. Now, not only does she use it as a litter box but she also has a new favorite place to nap on top! Thank you Paul !!
I've had my Out of Sight Litter Box for just over a week. I will just repeat what others have
posted here: It's worth every penny, it's the best litter box EVER. It's so well built, I suspect I'll
be leaving it to my son in my will. If you have cats, you want this litter box! I have four cats, and I spend less than 5 minutes a day cleaning the litter box, even on days when it's time to refill the litter. If you're sick of sweeping up litter, or squatting on the floor to scoop, get one of these!!
Bought my box over 6 months ago. It is amazing. I have 3 cats, Maggie, Gracie and Bailey. In 6 months maybe I have cleaned up just a few grains of cat litter on the outside of the box. Most of that was dropped when I was cleaning the box. I would highly recommend this box without any reservation. Love it! This litter box has done everything you advertised. My cats love it and I love that I do not have any litter on my hardwood floors. Another great thing about it is that not only does it keep out the puppies, it also protects babies and toddlers from accessing the litter box.
I have always been skeptical of testimonials of products, but I can't say enough good things about this product. I am getting ready to give the one I purchased to a friend who says he "cannot afford such an expensive box" (I tried to tell him its worth every penny) and buy myself another one in the black color. I feel that every home that has a cat should have this product. Thanks again for making my cats happy and my life easier.
We absolutely love our Out of Sight Litter Box! We plan to purchase another one for our upstairs in
the near future.
Got our new litter box today. All put together. Quite a bit bigger than our old one circa 2006/7! Looks great though. The old one will go out on our lanai – trying to keep the dog out of both cat boxes! BTW, the instructions were great. MUCH easier than most build-it-yourself items. Thanks again! We’ve loved using the first one (2006/7) and look forward to having both.
Love, love, love our Out of Sight Litter Boxes! Yes, boxes, we have two. Mole & Kujo thank you!
What a great solution to keeping the dogs out of the litter box, minimizing mess and odor, and no longer having to get down on the floor to scoop a conventional litter box!
I only put the kitty litter into the box this morning. Bandit immediately figured it out right away. I think that it was helpful that I played with him with some toys, both inside of the litter box, in the entrance and on the step. This way the box seemed like a fun place for him to be. We love it. Thanks!!
Dear Paul, let me start by saying I wavered a bit before ordering only because of the cost, I kept imagining some family member collapsing to find out what I spent on a litter box. I did it anyway and I want to state in the strongest and most positive way that the total cost of the product, plus shipping, IS WORTH EVERY penny. I am thrilled to have an organized laundry room that is clean and stylish with a place for my cat’s private business. I ordered the unit in white, it looks smart and my guests see nothing but a clean, organized laundry room on their way to my powder room… no more trying to push the litter box out of sight before company arrives!
Your suggestion of moving the old litter box to the new, designated location before actual use was spot on. It only took half a day (and a few rehearsals where I lifted the cat into the box) for my cat to use on his own. Putting it together did take about 2 hours, as you predicted. This is a quality product, seams and alignment were spot on, the box is square and level and I did it on my own.
For customer service, you are great and it is clear you take great pride in your product. Thank you for being available both times I called you. As I write this review, my cat is chasing the cursor with his paw………..”
Since Maya and Luca are still tiny at 11 weeks old, I added a few extra steps with a shoe box in the back of the first level and a puzzle box in the corner of the second level. They are so funny. Morning and evening when they hear me scooping the soiled litter, they come running up the "stairs" of their box to "help" with the process.
I love your ingenious box for numerous reasons... I don't have to stoop to scoop, it's nice to look at, the smell is contained and neutralized, and the turf eliminates tracking.
I already have one of your Out of Sight Litter Boxes and love it! But I want another one for
upstairs! IT WORKS!
No more litter under our feet!! That was our reason for trying the Out of Sight Litter Box, and it works!!
We bought one box and waited to see if Donut, age 11, would adopt it. After making sure he did, we ordered a second so we would have one for each level of the house.
We love having one downstairs because the only place for a litter box is the guest bathroom. Now our guests aren't subjected to the sight of an open box.
We added a motion-activated night light in each box so kitties wouldn't be in complete darkness at night. The lights are attached with Velcro, so I can move them out of the way when it's time to replace the box.
Our three cats use the boxes faithfully, and Donut even lounges on top of the one that is in front of a window.
I just wanted to let you know that the Out of Sight Litter Box is a success! I must compliment you on the way this item was packed. Very precise and efficient. And the instructions were spot on. I laid everything out, made sure I had all the pieces and hardware before beginning, and followed your instructions step by step. It all came together perfectly. The high-sided litter pan fits just right and will keep my cat Tucker from “overshooting”. The best part is he took to it right away! I have it in my home office and I keep a scooper and plastic grocery bags in the little storage cabinet so daily cleanup is a snap. Tucker loves his new “executive washroom” and I thank you for a quality and well designed product.
I recently assembled the Out of Sight Litter Box I ordered so I thought I'd follow up with some pictures and a testimonial.
I was hopeful this would work, but I am a skeptic at heart and was prepared to have a $295 cat box that takes up a bunch of space and not perform as advertised. I am so glad my skepticism was for naught. Thank you for designing a terrific product. I am a fan and will share my experience with all my peeps on Facebook.
And, what's even better is that there is NO KITTY LITTER being tracked around the my hardwood floors. WhooHoo!
I love it!! Thanks again!!
I absolutely love it! I put casters on it so it can be moved from room to room, which is perfect for my city apartment. Thanks for a great product.
We want to thank you for your brilliant product. You have developed a functional, attractive and well built product for those of us who have cats in our families. For years we have struggled to keep our floor(s) vacuumed and swept; it’s been a never ending battle. No matter how many times the litter box is cleaned and swept/vacuumed around, the kitties would still carry some litter through the house in their paws. NO MORE! Because, we have an OUT OF SIGHT LITTER BOX.
While researching something to replace our existing wicker cover that dressed up the litter box, we found your invention on the web. We bought a black one. It arrived quickly, in mint condition (thoughtful packaging design too), and only took about 2 hours to assemble. Your instructions were superior and all the pieces were perfect; it went together with precision. From the beginning, Pooka, our Calico Sphinx, knew exactly what she was supposed to do. Klaatu, our creme Sphinx, had two accidents before he caught on.
Our elderly aunt has her new cherry unit in her bedroom and thinks it’s a lovely piece of furniture and her “Kit Kit” needed no training. Our daughter has her new black unit next to her Sphinx’s play gym, in a kitchen bay window. Our friend’s new black unit is located in the breakfast area of their kitchen, as well.
Your product is attractive, functional, and built to last for years to come. Best of all, it does EXACTLY what you advertise; it eliminates the need to sweep and vacuum all the time. It prevents kitties who like to kick out their litter from doing that, and by the time they’ve left the box, most, if not all litter particles have been left in the unit, not on the floor.
If this thank you should end up on your web site, we want to say, “Every cat owner should be so lucky as to have an OUT OF SIGHT LITTER BOX. It works. We were so impressed with this product, we bought three more to give to friends and family as Christmas presents.” We called FRONTGATE to advise them that they should consider offering your product in next years Christmas catalog.
So, ”THANK YOU, PAUL” for making our lives less stressful and our house cleaner! We so hope your invention will find its way in mainstream America, because every household with a kitty NEEDS your litter box."
Kindest Regards, John, Terri, Pooka and Klaatu
At first I had two concerns: 1.) Being a single, “older” lady, I wondered if I could put the cabinet together. 2.) Whether or not “my man of the house” Buster (he’s 22 pounds and very fuzzy) would be able to get in and use it. I am happy to report- both concerns were unwarranted.Your step-by-step assembly instructions were very easy to follow. As for my big guy Buster, no problem, he fits! And as for me, I don’t have to clean up all that litter anymore. Thank you!
We purchased our Out of Sight Litter Box for Tigger and Panther, ages 15 and 14 respectively. We put it together the very day it arrived and placed it in the same location that their previous litter pan had been. Well, the first night you would have thought it was a new play place, and the next morning we found that both cats took to using the cabinet right away! The great thing is that (at my age) I don’t have to bend over to clean the pan anymore. And OUR DOG (Sydney) CAN’T GET IN THE LITTER!
Thank you so much for this great invention!
3/3/16: Although this testimonial is long overdue, we continue to be very pleased with your product (purchased - June 3, 2013).
Thank you for an outstanding product.
We have one of your older "Out of Sight Litter Box" models, with the high-sider litter pan and the TraxTurf pads. In 2013 we downsized... moved cross country from a house on a large lot in the country to a one-bedroom apartment in the city. Our kitty boys Riley (siamese mix, 13yo) and Charlie (grey tabby, 11yo) had been used to going in/outside via their cat door and romping in the yard and neighboring pastures. At that time their 2 litter boxes were located in the garage. Since the move nearly two years ago, they have acclimated well to their new life here as indoor apartment cats.
Because space is at a premium at our apartment, we have limited places for even 1 litter box. The bathroom is too small for a litter box and we have had concerns over potentia litter smells which can permeate a small apartment. It has been important to find a litter box that could blend/hide within the room, be easy to clean on a frequent basis and could corral any litter that may travel on their paws. Thanks to your product, it meets all our needs and our kitties needs too! Our 2 kittys "downsized" from 2 to 1 litter box. With regular cleaning, the Out of Sight Litter Box works well for them. The hinged top lid panel and elevated litter box makes it much easier to clean, and the TraxTurf pads work very well at keeping the litter INSIDE the box and not migrating into the room. The TraxTurf pads are easy to clean too and our kittys don't mind walking on it. We followed your advice (FAQ: How will your cat(s) know where to find the kitty litter pan?). Over the past two years our kittys have been using it daily without any problem and we have been pleased with your Out of Sight Litter Box.
We have four cats, and wood floors. Need I say more? Your TraxTurf really works! The change in our house was instant. No more tracked litter! All our cats took to using the Out of Sight Litter Box right away. Before getting your cabinet, I was on my knees cleaning the litter box twice a day, then vacuuming- now I just lift the lid, scoop away, and walk away.
The Out of Sight Litter Box is a wonderful product. I really like that it does everything it claims it will do. Tracking of the litter was one thing that bothered me a lot and that problem is solved. I like very much not having to kneel on the floor to clean it. My condo is not large and so the litter box has always been in plain sight. Now it is hidden away in an attractive cabinet. I was not sure my cat Greyson was going to like it though. He complained at first, walking around it meowing, but now he has taken to it. I don’t think he liked to step on the TraxTurf. He has gotten used to it now.
Thank you for such a great product.
Out of Sight is right! We hated having guests visiting our home seeing that messy litter pan on the floor. Now we never have to worry if there is a new surprise left behind by our cat, Smoky. My husband has a bad back, so I had to clean the box all the time, but not anymore! He cleans in the mornings, I clean at night. As for house cleaning, that’s my job. Your TraxTurf really stops litter tracking. Our guests have asked if we still have our cat and commented that our home doesn’t smell. You guys must be cat owners!
I could not be happier with my new litter box hider! I have a small apartment with hardwood floors and I was going crazy with the amount of litter that was getting everywhere. I was sweeping every day. I was keeping the litter box in a large Rubbermaid container with a hole in the top and it was still getting all over the place! I have to say that after I got this litter box, the amount of litter on my floors went to zero!
I’m a gadget geek, I admit it. But I reached my limit with our last automated litter system. We’ve tried them both, the raking one, and the washing one. The raking one was fun to watch work, but would get stuck and beep until we hit the reset. As for the washing one, we just brought back to the store. The expense of the maintenance supplies just wasn’t worth it. Plus I was the only one in the family that could reprogram it. So, I researched, and ordered your cabinet. I have to laugh at your inventive easy to use design using “low tech/old school” kitty litter. But it works. Everyday!
I just wanted to email some pics of “the girls” with the litter box. They took to it right away and as you’ll see from the pictures, Mia likes to sit on top and look outside. It is even better than I expected!
I also really appreciate you delivering it to my house (Note: local Rock Hill, S.C. delivery was available) and the high-sider litter pan fits perfectly! I also thought that the directions were terrific! I was a little intimidated when I saw those pieces, but the directions made it easy!
I own a dog, and two cats. Before having your cabinet, I had my second bathroom set up in a way that my cats could get to a litter pan, but my dog couldn’t. Your Out of Sight Litter Box is just great! It keeps my dog out of the litter, and has given me my second bathroom back!
We have 2 out of sight litter boxes (a 2003 design and a newer one) and they have been a lifesaver!!! I used to have to constantly clean-up litter and had tried tons of other boxes… this is the ONLY litter box that truly eliminates tracking of litter, looks good & keeps odors controlled also. Very easy to train my cats also! Would recommend to anyone who has cats!!!! Absolutely love it and is a great investment in your sanity and cleanliness! We are expecting a baby and it’s great to know that we don’t have to worry about our baby getting into the litter.
Love this product- very easy to assemble also!!!
My first concern, as it is with any covered litter box, was ventilation. Ammonia can build up within a small covered litter box, and normally I don’t recommend them for that reason. The Out of Sight Litter Box has a large entrance door and ventilation areas in the front and back panels that allows for more than sufficient fresh air flow. The TraxTurf within the cabinet effectively removes soiled litter from the cat paws, and is soft and flexible so to not injure tender foot pads. My Practice recommends the Out of Sight Litter Box, as well as proudly displays a rack of brochures on our office counter.
At first, I was a bit skeptical. It was a big investment for something that THREE CATS had to like…what good would it do if only one or two took to it?? After a little acquainting them with the new piece of furniture (Can you imagine? A littler box that can double as an end table! Haha), the two ragdolls did fine. Our Tuxedo, well, not. Immediately, I panicked and said “It has to go,” What good would it be for only two of our cats, necessitating another box for the older guy?? But, after taking out the downstairs TraxTruf mat, and with a little patience, he too got the hang of it. All the kitties are using the box, just taking a short week. It is neat, attractive, and the litter stays inside more than all over the floor! In addition, there is no odor, plenty of room for supplies to be put away out of sight!!
After all is said and done, I am no longer worried. What a great litter box. Especially- no more bending down and/or kneeling in kicked out litter.
I can now say, it was well worth the cost! It just takes a little patience and we could have done well without my panic! Thank you for a great invention.
Your Out of Sight Litter Box is built solid. It doesn’t wiggle or move. It only takes a minute in the morning and a minute at night to scoop clean, and that’s it. It saves me time. And as for the purchase price, I look at that as the last money we will have to spend, I just wish we had bought your cabinet first!
When litter box NUMBER 2 was delivered, I have to tell you that I’ve never seen my hubby so excited to get something that wasn’t electronic delivered to the house . You recall that he was a skeptic at the purchase of the first, but the kitties adapted quickly just fine, so this purchase was inevitable since he’s a believer! An expert by now, unlike the usual expletives one sometimes hears when loved ones are assembling things, all I could hear from the other room (even during the assembly the our first box) was NOT “!@#$$!!?!!”, but rather, “I still can’t believe how well made this thing is!” Kudos to you for such a great product, no skimping. Once again, three cats, TWO incredible OUT OF SIGHT LITTER BOXES, and we’re extremely happy.
Thank you from us all…
Lulu, Doozy, and Max, Susan and Jim
I love the new litter box, it solved all my problems. The dog can not get into the litter anymore. This is the greatest invention; especially for people who have both cats and dogs living in the same house. You have solved my problem and now I don’t have to worry about the dog eating out of the litter box. The dog could have gotten very ill. I can’t thank you enough for everything – and – I know Jade (my cat) can’t thank you enough either.
I love my cat, but I’ve always hated cleaning up his litter box area. In the past I tried litter boxes with covers, different kinds of litter-catching mats (which Hobbes would manage to jump right over on his way out of the box), and different types of litter—but nothing really seemed to help. It was an incredibly frustrating, constant struggle trying to keep the apartment clean. When I moved to a smaller studio apartment, I had a new problem: The bathroom was too small for his covered litter box, and the kitchen was the only other area with enough space. I was NOT going to deal with my kitchen smelling like a litter box, or Hobbes tracking litter close to where I prepare food. So even though it was a big purchase for me as a student on a budget, I splurged on the Out of Sight Litter Box and hoped it would solve my problems.
It did, and then some. It took a couple days for Hobbes to adjust to using it, but once he did, I haven’t seen a speck of tracked litter in my apartment. The raised shelf and flip-top lid make it really easy to clean, which I do every morning and evening. There’s no smell whatsoever. And because the cabinet itself looks like an end table or storage cubbard, most visitors have no idea Hobbes’ litter box is hidden away in the kitchen.
In addition, it was easy to assemble, and customer service was great. When a small part was accidentally left out, it was Fed-Exed to me overnight with an apology. I’ve been extremely satisfied with my purchase and have recommended it to all my friends and family members who have cats – I think the increase in my sanity level alone has been worth it!
The kitties are getting more comfortable with their “out of sight” litter box and we are getting used to going barefoot again! This will be a win-win for all. Thank you for your purseverance, quality work and caring heart, it is all appreciated. The more in touch we are with animals the more insightful we become about our own humanity.
We have a 13 pound, 12 year old maine coon whom we rescued when she was 6 weeks old. And have dealt with cat litter everywhere since getting her, subsequently we got two dogs who are cat litter scavengers, and we were going nuts. We ended up with towels on the floor, a dust buster next to the box and the box entrance facing the wall to try and keep the dogs out, but still felt like we were constantly walking in and sleeping with, litter.
Our big issue is our cat will not use the litter box unless it is located in our bedroom. If we more it… she, well, “goes” everywhere! My husband sent me a link to your site and I bought it instantly. The night is arrived he immediately started putting it together. The detailed assembly instructions really helped.
Our sweet girl unfortunately “missed” over our old pan’s edge. I remembered your special High-Sider litter pan and ordered it! I wouldn’t use anything else, our cat took to it right away, and now, no more problems. Now, we walk around barefoot asking each other “guess what, I’m NOT stepping in?” Even better, our dogs keep sniffing around the cabinet but cannot scavenge the pan! We had no idea how much our dogs were getting into the litter pan before getting the Out of Sight Litter Box. Now our dogs will stay healthy!
Your invention has literally changed our lives! I am such a happier cat owner, I used to say I would never get another cat, but now that our house is virtually litter free, maybe we will! Just wanted to say THANKS!
Our cat took to using the Out of Sight Litter box the first day without any issues. Unfortunately, the cat was nowhere to be seen at the time, ha! The quality of the product is fantastic, all the holes boards, etc aligned great. Instructions were well done. Anyway, thanks again — my vacuum and my back are thanking you!
The Out of Sight Litter Box is the best product created!!! My Bubba a 20lb cat and Dottie a 11lb cat took to it quickly. It makes it so much easier to keep clean and to pick up their waste; my back thanks you for that. I put it by a window so not only is it used to go potty in, but it’s a great height for my babies to see out the window too. The easy to follow instructions made it so easy to assemble. Both Bubba and Dottie were my supervisors, pushing me to complete the job so they could use their new litter box furniture. They applauded my efforts as I finished quickly and proceeded to acquaint themselves with their new loo.
We purchased our 2 Out of Sight Litter Boxes in preparation for a new baby. We needed a place where we can have the litter boxes without worrying about or two dogs and eventually our baby getting into them. My husband assembled them. I was amazed at how easily they went together. All three cats took to them right away. We can also feed our cats right on top of the boxes. It is so nice not having old dirty litter boxes sitting around when company coves over. It is also much easier to clean the pans when they are elevated.
They look like pieces of furniture and could easily be moved in any room of our house!
Our cat Isabella loves her Out of Sight Litter Box!! As you can see, we use it as a piece of furniture in our bathroom!
It is amazing how much litter gets trapped in the TraxTruf mats and does not make it onto the floor. The first time we cleaned the mats – the litter just poured out back into the litter pan. We just had NO idea how much litter they caught. The design works beautifully. It did take a bit for the cats to warm up to the idea, but once they did, there was no turning back. We absolutely recommend the Out of Sight Litter Box! As a side note, it was great working with the company. Any questions we had were friendly and promptly answered.
I live in a small New York City apartment and when I first got my cat, I was really having a hard time with litter being tracked on to my hardwood floors as well as the nasty smell from the litter box, despite my cleaning it twice daily. Then, I found the Out of Sight Litter Box. It is truly the most perfect litter box for an apartment. It is amazing. I am also using crystal litter. Combined with the Out of Sight Litter Box, I believe I have found the perfect solution: I have absolutely no litter tracking and no smells. It is a clean solution. I have it located in an area of my kitchen (away from food preparation). I highly recommend the Out of Sight Litter Box. There is simply no other litter box as good for curing litter tracking and eliminating litter box odor.
I asked for the Out of Sight Litter Box for my birthday present because I love practical gifts and my cats. I’ve always had problems with litter splash, and this product cancels it out completely! Just shake out the mats (TraxTurf) every few weeks and your floor will stay litter free. The box is well made and easy to assemble. It blends in with all of my furniture, makes daily cleaning less of a chore, the storage compartment is extra convenient, what else could possibly be better about it!?! If you have room for a nightstand or side table, you have room for the Out of Sight Litter Box. All THREE of my cats use it with no problem! It took them a little searching, but they figured it out quickly.
This is an essential for cat owners. Thanks so much!
My company was very impressed with the Out of Sight litter box! They asked that I send them a link and will also be sharing it with friends. I think the hardest part about the whole process of assembly was just getting the gigantic staples out (note: staples no longer used) of the shipping box… very nicely packaged by the way… other than that, it was an enjoyable project. Loved the “personality” in the instructions. Squeeker and Cuddles took to it right away without hesitation! I have not noticed any litter on the floor, I thought for sure when I vacuumed in front of it I would hear at least a little bit, but none. Thank you so VERY much for recommending the high side litter pan. Feel free to edit out any parts of my email and use for your testimonial. I’m glad I did choose the walnut, it does not look like the 70’s style press-board furniture. I thank you for your blood, sweat, and I’m sure tears in getting this product out and available for us and know your efforts are greatly appreciated by all, two and four legged alike!
My furry babies Bugsi and Gigi and I love the out of sight litter box cabinet. I have ZERO litter tracking now, which is amazing! The kittens took to it immediately and my girl likes to use it as a hiding place as well, lol. The instructions are very thorough and anybody can put this together with a little patience. It looks beautiful and my friends are always surprised when they find out that this beautiful piece of furniture is a litter box hider. I suggest to get the high-sider litter pan as well, it fits exactly in the cabinet and allows easy removal when changing the litter.
Best wishes, Sabine D. :)
My husband saw the “Out Of Sight” litter box in the August 2013 issue of Cat Fancy magazine (now Catster). It looked interesting so we went to the web site to get more information and see if there were any testimonials, there were and they were very helpful, the thing they all had in common is the fact that there was no longer a problem with cat litter on the floor around the box. It’s true in fact. It was so nice not to be stepping on cat letter every time we passed the box that we have ordered a second “Out of Sight” litter box for upstairs. Albert our beautiful Burmese had no trouble using the new box, Lucy his sister was just a little more reluctant but figured it out. After all these years of Albert (15 year old) and Lucy tracking cat litter all over, we no longer have that problem.
Thank you Paul Pettys!
We purchased our Out of Sight Litter Box in 2003, so it is one of the very early styles. And it still looks great. When it arrived, what impressed me the most… the quality and craftsmanship! After 10 years… we have had no deterioration in quality down to the hinges and screws or cabinet. What I especially like is that my 17 year old cat can easily maneuver inside. She and our 2 previous kitties never have had a mistake in the house. AND it 100% stopped our dog from… well, you know. OH! And let me tell you that these past 10 years… I’d say that less than 1 tablespoon of litter has made it past the enclosed turf. By the time Rumpleteazer exits the opening… she is litterless!!! Thank you for an amazing product that solved all of our litter box problems. I cannot tell you how grateful we are.
With sincere appreciation, Celeste V, Jeffrey R, Rumpleteazer and Dusti dog too! :)
Note: The 2003 (G1) design shown in the photo of this Testimonial, is no longer available for sale. I have found them for sale still on eBay from time to time.
I was so excited when my Out of Sight Litter Box arrived at my door step, I had to set it up right away! The only thing I thought may be a little difficult was piecing everything together, not being a super-handy person, but boy was I wrong! The step-by-step instructions made everything a breeze!
I used to step in kitty-litter in my bathroom and I can happily say those days are long gone now that Tucker has, and LOVES, his Out of Sight Litter Box! I can't thank you enough for this invention, Paul Pettys, you spoiled not only my handsome little man (tuck) but me as well, all my kitty loving friends want one!
I was surprised to see such a remarkably small, but heavy, box. The packaging was excellent; the box was very creatively designed and staple-free! The instructions were well written and fun and easy to follow.
As a veteran assembler of all things flat-pack, I was amazed at the quality. The boards are solid, and the banding is applied in such a way so there are no sharp edges or gaps. The holes are all drilled the correct sizes. (The last flat-pack I assembled, the holes for the cams were all too big, so the cams fell out when you tried to move the board. When the cams were tightened, they would loosen themselves up and fall out if you jostled the furniture… which just happened to be the litter box cabinet I bought before I bought this one!)
Assembly was a breeze. I was watching TV, and actually stopped for a snack while working on it, and it still took less than two hours, and I never had to ask for help.
Once it was in its final place, with the slightly used litter from the original box in it, it took the cats about 10 minutes to figure it out. The three of them were jostling each other for the chance to get up in the top of it first.
Today I checked litter outside the box. It’s been set up and being used exclusively for four days. I found 6… ONLY SIX!... small pieces of litter right in front of the box, and there’s a chance I shook some of them out when I was scooping the box. I have one cat with long hair, including on her feet, and I used to sweep up as much as a half a cup of litter A DAY!
I LOVE this litter box. I’ll never have another ‘regular’ litter box again. It does exactly what is claimed, and is so well built, I suspect my son will inherit this one from me when the time comes.
If you have cats you love, but you hate the litter box(es), do yourself a favor, and get one of these. You won’t regret it.
Thanks SO much for such a well thought-out, well crafted product!
I just wanted to drop a line of thanks to you. I had been praying for sometime for a solution to the litter box. I had tried an automatic litter box; the crystal litter; the paper litter; covered; uncovered; and on and on.
Nothing and I mean nothing would get rid of the smell and stop the litter from going everywhere. And then came the issues with our puppy wanting to get into the litter box herself.
I finally had enough!! So, I figured why not ask the Lord for a solution. And BANG!! There you were on Google. It has been wonderful. Clean up is so easy. There is no smell. No litter being tracked. My cat, Gracie, is happy and really happy that her sister pup, Stella, can't use her litter box anymore. :)
Our Pastor always says "be a solution to a problem and God will give you a great idea." This product is living proof. And I am so happy that you honored the Lord in the process.
Thanks again. And feel free to use my testimonial.
Tonda, Gracie and Stella from Ohio
I'd been searching for a nice way to disguise the litter box for a while. When I found the Out of Sight Litter Box, I was impressed with the design and excited about the promise of no more litter tracking. That stuff gets everywhere. Even after I sweep and vacuum I'd always find more. And when it's in the bed sheets - gross...
On to the good stuff! I ordered this product on Sept 24, 2015, and it arrived at my door Sept 29, 2015. Super fast, and super heavy! (Don't expect to carry this anywhere!) When I first opened the box I was a bit overwhelmed and wondered if I would be successful putting it together by myself. But the instructions are clear, and the pieces all there and well labeled. You don't need any unusual tools - just a screw diver and a hammer. About 2 hrs later, I was so proud of myself --- it was assembled and looking like a really nice, solid piece of furniture. With the little clear pads on the bottom I was able to slide this piece across my hardwood floor easily to my desired location.
When it came time to introduce my cat Julian to the new box, I put him in the top as Paul suggests. He used the box, and then peered and pawed at me through the top gap, asking to be let out. I was worried he wouldn't figure out how to get out, but after a few minutes of confusion he found the back route. He made his way back in with no trouble and seems very pleased with the added privacy of this box. (The high-sided litter pan provided is essential to prevent messes inside. And I think it helps shake more litter off since he has to hop out of it onto the landing.) AND there's been NO MORE TRACKING!!! That truly makes this piece worth the money. My place feels so much cleaner --- tidier because the box is concealed, and truly more sanitary with no more kitty litter bits.
Happy to provide pics and a testimonial for your site. Excellent product! Thank you!!!
We found you on the Internet. We ordered an Out of Sight Litter Box and believe this is one of the best investments we have ever made.
We have had our Out of Sight Litter Box for 3 weeks now, our 14 year old male Manx is using it without a problem! Using the suggestions you made, (in “Getting Started” on the Assembly Instructions) he easily made the transition! I have 4 small dogs and no one has been able to get in! Thanks you! Worth every penny!!!
I love the Out of Sight Litter Box. No more yelling at the dogs for helping me clean it out. And definitely no odor!
Now that I've had my Out of Sight litter box for a few weeks, I can say it's the best one by far, hands down! I initially purchased it to give my kitty, Marko, some privacy in my small apartment. I didn't even realize how much I would appreciate that it has virtually stopped litter tracking :) Assembly was a bit time-consuming, but your instructions were very easy to follow, and in the end, I enjoyed putting in the effort to help build this beautiful piece of furniture that Marko now loves. He's fairly large (14 lbs), and has plenty of room. Also, honestly, I only clean it 2-3 times per week and there is absolutely no odor.
Thank you so much for a fabulous product!
My husband was shocked at how quickly Miss Kitty adjusted to the Out of Sight Litter Box. She has always used a litter box faithfully and never had any accidents except for the scattered litter, thus my buying the Out of Sight Litter Box. We've been very pleased with the unit. Cleaning the litter box is so easy since it is such a convenient height and the cat no longer tracks litter.
We put together the litter box and my cat amber used it with in 15 min. Just have to make sure the dogs don't try anything, so far so good.
I ordered two white cabinets (one for our vacation home). I put one together and I thought I would share with you my observations as unsolicited customer feedback from following your website, and the gracious amount of time you spent with me on the phone when I was placing my order.
The packing was great. Perfectly fit into the shipping box with no lost space and totally protected. Instructions were very good. It took me a while to figure out what the "curb" was and where it went. But otherwise I found everything well explained and easy to follow and I could see you spent time making it that way.
All pieces fit perfectly together and all predrilled holes were perfectly placed. Your included tips were great. The panels look good. There was a little excess glue in places on the edges or the panel surfaces but after assembly I hit them with soft scrub and they disappeared. Nice to get all hardware necessary - even had an extra pin and 2 extra cams.
I want to tell you that I absolutely LOVE this box. It’s the BEST invention … I don’t have to lean over to scoop the litter; the cats use it; and it helps keep litter grains off my floor.
We all love our Out of Sight Litter Box which is attractive and practical.
Your instructions and attention to detail are exceptional.
Thanks Paul, Best regards,
Rocky and Pebbles (Kitties) mom along with Dodger and Ginny (dogs)
Love the quality of your product. So does Scottie!
Mittens loves her new office. She gets all her "Business" done here and it doesn't interfere with anybody else!
Thanks so much for your awesome invention, Paul! We love our cat, but have always disliked the litterbox mess and smell. You have taken care of that and now we can enjoy our kitty even more.
Signed, Your loyal customers,
Carla, Hannah & Mittens
Hello - I've been meaning to send an email with some pictures and comments (but life has been busy). The cardboard boxes have been working fine, although I prefer to wash/bleach my litter pans once in while, you can't do that with cardboard. I'm glad to hear there's a plastic litter pan coming soon.
My only other comment is regarding the directions. They were pretty good, and liked the pictures. The only part I felt could use some additional description was the hinges, I had to spend some time on that step. Also, the weight of the box upon arrival surprised me. I'm sure it said somewhere on the site, but I was still surprised. I could not carry it upstairs. I had to open the box and carry up piece by piece.
One thing I love about the Out of Sight Litter Box, is that I can stand up while cleaning the box!
Photos: Bryce (my kiddo) helping with assembly...
(YES, I can ship to Canada, but, it will costs you!)
Hi Paul, hope you are well.
Just a quick note to tell you that our cats are geniuses and took to your litter box within a couple of hours. Picture of Mushroom, our chief, enjoying his catnip on top of the litter box. The coated cardboard litter boxes seem to be holding up pretty well.
Best to you,
I purchased this product back in February. It was delivered to our doorstep, securely and neatly packaged. The instructions were very clear and detailed, which made it easy to put it together on my own (with very little help from the felines, despite their best efforts), and it took just a little over two hours to complete the build. (Plus overnight for the silicon to dry). It is a perfect fit in my laundry room and it looks great! It took Zeux, the curious one, about three seconds to figure it out, though he did not initially like stepping on the turf, and it took Ziggy, the more cautious one, about three days to fully trust it. I took out the entry level turf and replaced it with a strip of the old litter mat they were used to, and left the top lid open for the first week until I was sure they both had the hang of it. After a week, I put the turf back in, closed the lid, and we have had no issues whatsoever. I love that it is so much easier to clean (no bending and stooping) and the tracking is now non-existent. I can finally walk through my laundry room any time of day or night without stepping in scattered litter! Additionally, I no longer hear the cats digging and scratching in the litter, and I no longer smell the box while in the laundry room. The storage space underneath is the perfect size for storing fresh litter, an extra baking soda box, and the litter scoop.
The product was a bit on the pricey side and I mulled it over for several weeks before actually placing the order. My friends have given me a hard time for spending so much on a litter box, but when I added up all the money I've spent on traditional (and experimental) litter boxes and various and assorted litter mats over the years, I regretted that I had not heard of this product sooner as I could have saved myself some money and all the trouble of experimenting with different products that simply do not work. The Out of Sight Litter Box is well worth the money. It's a very nice looking, sturdy piece of furniture and I expect it will be the last litter box I ever purchase. I recommend it to every cat owner I encounter.
Also, as advertised, my kitties are STILL enjoying playing in the shipping box!
Thank you, Paul, for your creative ingenuity!
I can’t say enough good about my Out of Sight Litter Box. It’s amazing - does exactly what it’s designed to do. The assembly instructions were excellent, it only took me between two and three hours to put together. As suggested, each cat only needed to be placed in the litter and the lid closed for him to figure out how to exit by the doorway below, and to reason out how to enter the same way. Once was enough for both cats; they never missed a beat.
I wish every company treated its customers the way Out of Sight Litter Box, Inc. does. Super super customer service as well as a beautifully-designed product. Worth the money, and I don’t say that lightly.
In the four days since installing the box, there has not been any litter tracked anywhere in the house. I can now go into the laundry room barefoot. No more “better than nothing” litter-catching mats. It looks great and so neat compared to the old litterbox. And I don’t have to bend over to clean out the litter, something an arthritic retiree can really get excited about!
* I use the word "stop(s)" to describe the difference (before to after) that my Out of Sight Litter Box will have on your litter tracking issues.
A legal definition might better be "will substantially reduce litter tacking by 98%". You may find a few pieces of rogue litter here or there, but you will notice such a substantial difference
that you too might use the word "Stopped" while telling your friends how the Out of Sight Litter Box changed your litter tracking issues.
