https://modkat.com/products/modkat-litter-box

https://modkat.com/products/modkat-xl-litter-box

They are quite expensive but have a decent modern look, reduce litter tracking, and have 800+ reviews with 4.3 stars on amazon. The amazon price has also decreased to $71.95 and $119.95 but they are still shipped from modkat. One word of warning ive seen in reviews is that you can return if this doesnt work out with your kitty but you have to pay return shipping fees.

I know this thread is not for reviews, but I've owned a couple of ModKats for almost 2 years. I thought I would offer my opinion for those not familiar with them. I have the front entry 'Flip Litter Box'

I threw out my old litter boxes at the end of 2018 to purchase ModKat. I do love them and have no regrets. I was a bit hesitant because of the price (I could have purchased a litter genie with what I spent on them). The Litter Genie would have enabled me to stop scooping, but with the mechanical parts, there is always the fear of something breaking. Plus, I'm a clean freak and I know there is a ton of spots for germs to grow in the genie.
My ModKats are sleek and streamlined. There are virtually no cracks or crevices for germs to hide. I used the free liners that came with the boxes and absolutely loved them. But, I did not want to purchase additional liners because I don't think they were worth the high price. At first, I tried to make my own liners out of cheap tarps or garbage bags. Eventually, I realized that the boxes were so well designed I didn't need a liner.
Since going without liners, I find the boxes incredibly easy to access and keep clean. I love the flip-top lid design of mine. All of my cats (even my old lady with Arthritis) have no trouble accessing the box. Best of all, they are unable to throw litter around or spray over the edges.
I did use 'NeverWet' on one of the boxes because some of the reviews stated they did that. What a mistake. The box without it is much easier to wipe & keep clean. The 'NeverWet' added an almost sticky layer to the box that is undesirable. ModKat's are designed with a material that is extremely easy to wipe clean, so my opinion is leave it as is.
All in all, I would purchase them again, although I definitely think the reduced price is better than what I paid. I think the liners are too expensive, even though they last a long time. I think mine lasted about 6 months (with proper care & litter scooping).

Sorry if this post is in the wrong spot. I just thought it might help someone debating on a pricey litter box.

No thanks, have no interest in being forced to buy proprietary liners. The alternative of not having a liner is simply disgusting, unless you like to do a full wash of it every time you change the litter. Cats will scratch the plastic bottom over time and it will be increasingly hard to clean and make it easier for fecal matter to get embedded in the grooves. And you are doing your cats a disservice by forcing them to defecate in an enclosed unit like that, cats like to see their surroundings when they are doing their thing, depending on temperament. I'd rather clean up the tracked litter than subject my cats and my wallet to this. Go ahead and keep your liner for 3-6 months...I have not had a premium liner last more than 6 weeks, and that is overdoing it. Fact is, pee and occasionally a wet poo gets to the bottom and sticks to it and that happens over and over again and it really makes for a disgusting liner after a couple weeks. Marketing BS that you can keep it for 3 months - that timeframe is only if you don't care about your cats and are cool with a lack of hygiene for both cats and humans. Buy this if your only concerns are aesthetics and litter tracking I suppose, which seem to be its only pros.
