FAQ’s for the Catit Jumbo Litter Box

Here are some common questions you might have when deciding on this popular cat litter box.

Is this litter box really that big?

Yes, it’s one of the biggest on the market.

Can the Flap Be Removed?

Yes the flap can be completely removed. Some cats just will not use a box with a flap on it, so any good litter box should have a removable cat flap.

How difficult is it to clean?

It’s easy. You remove the top half by unlaching the latches on the side and you can get to the entire litter tray to clean it easily. Also how often you clean the litter box can make it easier.

Is it good at controlling odors?

It is a covered box and that helps, however it also comes with a carbon filter to help elimiate odor.

How much litter do you need to fill this box?

This is a jumbo sized box, and the recommended level of litter is 3 inches. To do that it will take around 20-25 lbs of litter, so a lot of litter.

How much cat litter to use also depends on your cat. Some cats prefer more, some less, so try to experiment if you can.

Whats is the best litter liner for this cat litter box?

KONE Cat Litter Box Liners Extra Durable with Drawstring fit this box, and are available at Amazon. Catit also do their own liners for this box.

Also, check our article on whether you should use cat litter liners.

Is it easy to move around when filled?

It is heavier when filled, but it would be OK to move around a little.

The box itself is not heavy, but when filled with around 20 lb of litter, and if that litter is wet, it can get pretty heavy.

The handle will hold OK but this could be cumbersome to move around due to its size and weight.

Can cats and kittens push through the door easily?

Most cats will be able to do this with ease. Some cats do not like pushing these flaps, so you can either gently encourage them to do this with a little nudge, or just fold it back and leave it open for them.

Kittens normally don’t know how to do this, so they will need a little training. Once they master that, then they will continue to do this.

Where can I buy this litter box?

The best place would be Amazon as it seems to be in stock most of the time. You could also try a local pet store if you prefer to look at it first.


That concludes this Catit litter box review.

Overall, this is a sturdy and well built cat litter box with lots of features. It’s great for large cats and the hood and door flap will help to keep out litter odor.
