One of my pet peeves when it comes to litter boxes is that many new litter boxes are designed to either make cleaning the litter box easier, or hide the litter box from view. Neither of these two reasons have anything to do with what cats want or need, and everything to do with human sensibilities.

I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve turned down a pitch to feature or review yet another “innovative” litter box.  When it comes to litter boxes, simple is better.

The best litter box is a large, open box.

We’ve used the NVR Miss Litter Box exclusively for almost ten years, and I still consider it one of the best litter boxes on the market. It solved our problem with Ruby, who, tiny as she was, was a vertical peer, and the NVR Miss was the only box high enough to contain things. Now that that’s sadly no longer an issue (and who ever thought I’d miss that part of little Miss Ruby!) I wanted to try the PetFusion Non-Stick Litter Box, a box I have had my eye on since it first came out a few years ago.


PetFusion Non-Stick Litter Box features

  • A non-stick pet-safe coating prevents cat litter from sticking to the bottom and sides of this box.
  • Made from a thicker plastic than standard litter boxes, this box is more durable.
  • A low entry makes this box a good option even for senior cats, but the higher sides help contain litter.
  • Generously sized at 22.6 x 18.1 x 8 inches, this box will be comfortable even for large cats.
  • The slightly curved design makes scooping and cleaning easier.

Putting the PetFusion Non-Stick Litter Box to the test

I was a little nervous about introducing a new litter box to Allegra. I generally don’t accept litter box or litter reviews because I’m not willing to risk litter box issues for the sake of a product review.

Allegra was immediately intrigued. She jumped right into the box to check things out. A couple of hours later, she used it for the first time. We use Dr. Elsey’s Precious Cat litter, a hard clumping clay litter, and I was eager to test the non-stick portion of this box. And it’s like magic! No more scraping, the clumps loosen easily and leave nothing behind. I change the entire box once a month, and cleaning it was a breeze.

A generously sized, open litter box that’s easy to clean – what more could a cat and cat parent want!

A word of caution: make sure that you introduce any changes to your litter box gradually, whether it’s a new box, mat, or litter. The general advice for the number of litter boxes is one box for each cat plus one. I recommend that even single cat households have at least two boxes, especially if you’re in a multi-level home. Never change out all boxes at the same time.

  1. I invested, hopefully, in two of the NVR Miss boxes. ($$$) My Lucille does not pee over the side. She buries. She digs digs digs until she’s covered whatever business she has done very well. Very, very well. She gets out of the box and leans back in over the entrance to do her digging. So much litter ends up on the floor there that I’m cleaning it up every time I go in the room. I use IKEA Toftbo bathroom rugs as litter catchers and they work well, under the circumstances. But I still have to clean up piles of litter. I’m going to try the Petfusion box. Meanwhile I’m starting to toy with the idea of one box inside another larger one. But Lucille has some arthritis , so I don’t want her to have any trouble getting into and out of her boxes.

  2. I use the ARM & Hammer boxes and Stand by them!! I too have a vertical Pee-er. They have a non stick coating( but they don’t advertise this). Very reasonably priced too!!
    I buy them at Big Lots for about $12.00

  3. This box sounds good. I like the larger size because Pele is long. But it’s not high enough. Lulu is a vertical peer and the boxes we have are actually covered boxes that my husband cut the roof out of to make them higher in the back and tapered down lower near the front. Sometimes she still pees over that side of it.
