NVR Miss Litter Box Review

I originally saw the NVR Miss on The Conscious Cat’s blog.  NVR Miss reached out to us to see if we would be interested in reviewing their boxes and of course, I was interested because my mom has two vertical peers, Caymus and Murphy.  So we ended up getting storage boxes for them and I liked how the high sides helped keep the litter inside when they got out of it.

NVR Miss told me that a litter box is given a different kind of finish (surface tooling) than a storage box is given, therefore it will last longer without a stench in the plastic.  Also, there is an entrance hole – that allows them to step into the litter box – so easy for a kitten or an older cat to get in and out.  The entrance is on the longer side and the design forces the kitty to align his or her body lengthwise,

therefore, no worries about spillage out the kitty entrance cut out.  They are a heck of a lot nicer than storage boxes and I am most excited about the cut out for older kitties and kittens.  A higher side litter box also prevents old guys from having their buttahs hang over the side – everything is contained in the box.

I did originally think that they were too small for Ragdolls – but NOT THE CASE.  Caymus, Murphy, Charlie and Trigg all used them.  I brought them to the Lake for Thanksgiving (where all 4 cats are together) and they all used them without thinking twice.

It holds 14 lbs of litter and you will still have an inch or so of clearance from the opening cut out.

The dimensions of the box are 21″ long, 15″ wide, 11″ high.

The NVR Miss Litter Box comes in two colors:

  • white
  • medium brown

They sell for $17.70 each.

We received the NVR Miss Litter Boxes from NVR Miss. Receiving the free products did not influence this post.

Caymus thinks litter boxes are sandboxes and he likes to roll in them. Gross =).

    I don’t think I would pay this much when you can make your own from Rubbermaid Storage containers and I can have the entrance on the end which fits my location better. PLUS it’s much cheaper!

    • Jenny says:

      Hi Linda, I understand your argument. However, aesthetically I prefer the NVR Miss much more than the storage containers and I really like that the opening is nice and smooth and wouldn’t scratch them.

      • Becca Dutill says:

        We were having a problem with one of our cats peeing outside the box, but that is no longer an issue! And our other cat who thinks she is half Lab, loves to dig and dig! But with the high sides, litter on the floor is barely an issue! The cost of the product plus the shipping, was more than we usually spend, but in the end it was worth it! I tried making my own from storage containers, but was unhappy with the results. And the opening was not smooth on my “diy” project, like it is on the NVR Miss. Thanks for the review.
        Florida hugs,

    We have a perpetual problem with litter scattered all over the floor – so I was excited to read this blog post! I finally picked up one of these litterboxes last weekend and it’s working great. My Ragdoll kitten Violet hopped right in to explore it and since then I’ve barely had to sweep up stray bits of litter. Yay! 🙂 I thought about cutting up a commercial plastic tub, but I like that this has rounded edges – also it’s really sturdy, heavy plastic.

    Sounds good….are they available in any pet stores…..I to have been making litter boxes out of plastic storage boxes…and completely understand the concept of “special finish”..smoother,more “non stick” and that the entrance opening is a much smoother “cut” than I can make on my own…one of my 4 is an amputee….and I worry about the boxes scraping her belly!….The scattered litter is a real problem with 4 cats, so it will be nice if this problem is reduced…..in the one picture, the cat is using two stacked together….WHY?…what would make this necessary?

    • Jenny says:

      Sorry for the pic being deceiving! It was because we had just arrived at my parents’ lake house and put them down and added the litter (because I was sick and didn’t have the strength to separate them and Caymus (kitty in the double stacked one) needed to go, I guess! So it’s totally NOT necessary and it was by accident, but I was taking photos for the review and wanted to get one of a cat in it because I had previously missed many opportunities! As far as pet stores – yes, there are some, but not all. Here is a list of the locations: http://www.nvrmiss.com/our_stores.php

      If you get one, let me know how it works. Also, Harold, the owner, is great about responding to inquiries – so you can always write him through the site too!

    Hi Kris – some customers are purchasing two litter boxes, and I make a shim so they don’t jam together, for space constrained situations, and they are used like that. Thanks Jenny, for showing that picture on the video. It has helped some cat owners.

    You don’t have to worry about your cat having a scratched belly with our litterbox because of the rounded edges.

    If you do not have a store nearby that you can reasonably be expected to drive to, the simplest way to get a NVR Miss Litterbox is with an online order. It really is a value proposition, and I know our litterbox represents a great value! To increase that value, you can split an order with a friend.

    If you contact me through the website, I can find a place in your locality to carry our litterbox. Just let me know how far you are willing to drive to get one. I would appreciate the assistance!

    Thank you
    Harold
