The Petmate hooded litter pan offers an innovative twist on the basic box.

October 21, 2010 8:33 pm | By Zootoo Editor CynthiaLo

For a long time I've sworn that the people who designed the common hooded litter box never actually had to clean one on a regular basis. If they had, cat owners would not still be dealing with urine-coated, hard-to-flip latches, or filthy pan and hood lips.

Petmate's high-backed litter pan – featuring a translucent hood that locks in place without latches – might finally be a step in the right direction for the basic box owner on full-time scoop duty.

The pan comes in selection of playful shades – blue, orange, or pink – and is sold in two sizes. The product is made from 25% recycled material and features Microban®, a continuous antimicrobial protection. I chose the “Jumbo,” which measures 21.8" L x 18" W x 18.3" H, to accommodate my jumbo Maine coon tomcat.

For the cats, using this pan must feel a lot like when humans shower behind a frosted glass door. The translucent hood is not too transparent. It allows light into the box, while keeping the cat's modesty intact, and protects surroundings from accidental overspray. The pan also keeps others outside the facilities from suffering from too much information.

When offered a choice of two identically-sized, hooded litter pans, my cats opted for the translucent-hooded twice as often. I base this finding on the impressive amount of evidence left in the Petmate facility every day. The hood's no-latch lock is sited a few inches higher than ordinary latches and I am thrilled to say mine has yet to be hit by urine.

This litter pan is an inexpensive bathroom makeover that will cheer up both cats and the people who clean up after them.

Pros: Inexpensive but effective; prevents accidental overspray; creates a light-filled but private environment.

Cons: None.

Some Cats

posted 4 years ago

Some cats do not like using the litter box when it has a hood or a roof on top of it. My cat Teddy was to scared to use this litter box until there was no longer a hood on top of it. Also I can't afford it right now but I would rather have one of the self cleaning litter boxes they sound better and safer. I am not only worried about my health and saftey but I am also worried about my pets saftey. The lid broke with in the first week of having it so the lid did not snap on properly which I did not discover until it fell off one day when my cat Shorty was sitting on top of it. Also the self cleaning litter box would get rid of my dog Skitters habit of eating kitty messes outta the litter box of course that won't help anymore cause she no longer has that bad habit.

Pros: less smell

Cons: the hood has to be removed when scooping the litter box

Litter stays in litter pan

posted 6 years ago

I really like these hooded litter pans because they keep every thing so much cleaner without having litter scattered everywhere. Another advantage is the filter which reduces odor. It has a carrying handle for moving it around when cleaning.

Pros: Less mess

Cons: some cats might not use it with the lid on
