This giveaway is sponsored by NVR Miss

The NVR Miss Litterbox has been our preferred litter box since we first discovered it six years ago.

The search for the perfect litter box can be frustrating for many cat guardians, especially those of us, like yours truly, who live with a vertical pee-er (her name starts with the letter “R”). My search ended when I discovered the NVR Miss™ Litter Box shown above at a cat show two years ago.

For details on why I love this box so much, please read my full review of the NVR Miss™ Litterbox. I haven’t found anything that’s as good as this box (other than ugly homemade versions), and I went through a lot of different boxes when Ruby first came to live with us.

NVR Miss: the perfect litter box

NVR Miss litter box

When I adopted Ruby in April, I didn’t realize that I would be embarking on the search for the perfect litter box. Ruby is a vertical pee-er. I had never had one of those. My regular litter box wasn’t going to work.
