Something to consider if you have multiple cats and your cats are dicks (most are to a point):

We had one very similar and it didn't work out so well. They would sit on the top of the box and attack (playfully, most of the time) the other cat while she was doing her business. Both were guilty of this egregious act. It was kinda funny how but also messed up if you think about it.

We had to take the top off because neither of them felt safe going in the litter box LOL, and we ended up with urine elsewhere. I hope you all have better luck!, and better cats.

I take care of feral cats and TRY to re-home them. (Have an a$$ neighbor that shoots them, so my only option is to take them in. Did put up video for any future issues but they are all in now (and fixed)
Anyway, just info on what has worked for me (with 2 small rescue dogs)...
I use large storage tubs, began by cutting out side but that is not needed and still kicked litter out. Got them on sale here on SD.
Use Dr Elseys Precious Cat Litter (yes, expensive but simply the best at holding clumps together so litter can be (almost) totally cleaned after scooping, resulting in less waste in changing out litter so often. Fill tote 1/3 to 1/2 full.
Add a capful of fish tank carbon to fresh litter. Really helps with any smells! Carbon fits through most scoops so you just scoop as normal.
This really works the best, and I've tried lots!!

this is a great idea - but,
you are far better off buying a 27gal tote from HD/Costco
then cutting a 10" hole in the top yourself.

OP's box size is bad because the cat has so little room, that he's likely
to step on his own crap/urine, then track it around your home.
a bigger box gives the cat the room it needs to avoid this hazard.

highly recommended. I had a standard side /top entry litter box when Gandalf was a kitten, so it made sense because he would have been too small to crawl in this box, but after he grew, he started to kick his litter outside the box every time. with this box design, there's absolutely zero litter on the floor

We've been using a similar one made from a storage container (and some carpeting to line the lid) for years, and it works great. This one costs about the same as the DIY materials and the hinged lid is a plus, it also has a bit of a lip around the edge which will probably help keep litter from being tracked everywhere.

Ok this is going to be a weird question but would this work to keep a baby/toddler away from harassing the cats? I have a 4 month old human and three indoor cats. He hasn't started being mobile yet but I fear for the fur babies lol and also dont want the baby human eating litter

I have this and honestly, it's a bit too big. I've got one of these plus a modko box, which is a similar design but smaller (and way more expensive.) The only reason the size really matters is it takes a ton of litter to fill it enough. Also, the lid has a pretty stupid design - it's hinged on the side, so when you open it, you dump any litter that was on the lid on the floor next to it. Not a huge deal but annoying, and I counter for this by just not hooking the lid into the hinge.

All that said, compared to a normal litterbox, this is a massive improvement. Both my cats adapted to the top entry immediately with no issues, and there's soooo much less litter kicked around the house now. Definitely worth it at $10.

This might actually make it more fun for the little one to harass the cat in my estimation. Also, I the curiosity of trying to explore what is in that hole could be troublesome too!

Agree with everyone, was sick of litter on the bedroom carpet and our bed. This won't completely eliminate it but it's maybe 20% of what it used to be. We have a 10 pound DSH rescue, took to this immediately and it's plenty big enough for him as long as you clean it every other day or so. For 10$, this is most certainly worth a try for anyone who hasn't tried it yet!

Same as you, I stopped using the lid as a hinged lid and just remove it and shake off any litter into the box.

This is actually becoming a concern of mine after having two of these for several years. A good thing is the cats instinctively know to just have urine on the exit side so they don't step on any poop when coming in or out.

But sometimes, I smell the litter box on the cats fur if the cat is in there a while. I wish there was a way to ventilate it since the space is a bit confining for one of my larger cats.
