Enclosed pan for extra large cats or multiple cat households prevents litter spills while giving your cat privacy. Odor-absorbing zeolite filters freshen trapped air. Made of high-impact plastic that is virtually unbreakable. Stain and odor resistant and easy to clean. Four latches lock top to bottom and hold plastic liners in place. Convenient carrying handles. This product comes in assorted colors.

The Van Ness Extra Giant Enclosed Cat Pan simplifies clean-up, controls odor, and travels well.

August 29, 2010 11:08 pm | By Zootoo Editor Kelly B.

A covered litter pan is a blessing to all of us with cats who like to “accidentally” aim out of the box and all over our hardwood floors. Tired of pushing his bottom down as he peed (an invasion he actually tolerated well) the Van Ness Extra Giant Enclosed Cat Pan keeps his act of civil disobedience contained! Although he pees on the lid’s wall, it has yet to leak through the seam. Also, after replacing my standard lidless pan with this one, I immediately noticed a decrease in the amount of litter being tracked all over the house.

The large size makes the pan ideal for a multi-cat house, although I had to remove the door because (inevitably) in a multi-cat house, one of them is too timid (or dumb) to figure out how to get in and out. This pretty much spoils the “odor control” function, but with the door and the Zeolite air filter (which they recommend changing once a month), the odor is impressively subdued.

The lid’s latches make the pan easy to transport to my pet sitter’s house for “sleepovers,” although the latches have a habit of popping off… it doesn’t happen often, but when it does, they are difficult to reattach. Otherwise the box and top are incredibly sturdy, and I have no fear of tossing it into the back seat of a car for light travel.

Though the box claims to be an “all new sleek modern design,” it’s just as ugly as any other litter box; but the rounded corner help keep the litter from getting clumped into nooks. The pan also preaches that it gives "your kitty a little privacy,” which I thought sounded silly… but you know what, I actually think they enjoy the confidentiality of their business! Before, they preferred not using the box if I was near by, but now I can be standing right next to it and they pay me no mind while going in to do their thing.

Pros: Durable, easy to move and clean, offers cats privacy

Cons: Door falls off or may confuse cat

Good litterbox if remove door

posted 3 years ago

I like the size of the box.
It is big enough for my 10 pound male!!!!!

I took the door off due to the male not using the box with the door attached and my small female cat got her paw wedged in the door. Now she will not go near the litterbox

Pros: big enough for adult cats especially males!!

Cons: cats hate the door; one of my cats got paw stuck in door

Great litter pans

posted 6 years ago

We use these litter pans all the time at our shelter where we sometimes have up to 30 cats in one room. These pans help prevent a lot of messes which saves on clean up time. Also, the cats seem to appreciate having a little more privacy while they take care of their business. A good buy.

Pros: Gives privacy, contains scents, prevents messes

Cons: None
