Last week, we reviewed the LitterLocker® Design Plus Pail Starter Kit. When AngelCare, the makers of LitterLocker® asked us to review their LitterLocker® Design Plus Pail Starter Kit, they also asked that we review their LitterLocker® Litter Box With Scoop. Lucky us because I think these litterboxes are super rad.
LitterLocker® is a Canadian brand and is not sold in the USA. It is only sold in Canada and parts of Europe. In the USA, Edgewell (Litter Genie) has the exclusivity, whereas AngelCare has it in Canada.
The LitterLocker® Litter Box With Scoop is a new unique design in cat litter boxes designed to facilitate cat litter maintenance.
LitterLocker® Litter Box With Scoop Unboxing
I love it for the high flexible sides and open (allowing your cat to breath) design. The handles are really cool – making dumping out the litterbox a cinch.
They are super easy to wipe down – just pour one litterbox into the another using the integrated spout, like I do in the final review video – wipe it down, wait for it to dry and then pour it back into the cleaned one. Or, you can dump the used litter entirely in the trash can if it’s not clumping litter or if you just want to clean your box that way.
The flexible sides and design allows for it to be squeezed into a spot, if need be – like if you had a smaller spot between your toilet and a wall, for example. I do not have that issue – I have plenty of room in my bathroom, so it worked well.
I love the high sides – so great for preventing litter scatter – my cats fling litter like they’re throwing confetti, so the high sides prevent that from flying everywhere.
The curved based was sometimes a challenge for me when scooping – since scoops are not rounded, but the bottom of the litterbox edges are, it was a challenge to get it off sometimes. I had to be pretty cognizant of the litter level, so that the pee clumps wouldn’t stick to the bottom, making scooping a challenge. As long as I had the litter level high enough, it was good to go. There is a litter level indicator on the interior surface of the litter box (I point this out in the unboxing video), however, I found that I needed to keep the litter level slightly higher than the indicated level for my two. I think that is always going to vary depending on the size of the cat using it.
As you can see, the litter boxes come in a grey color and have glossy fun cat paw patterns on the exterior surface. They measure 22.3 x 17.6 x 16 inches.
In the USA they are sold as the Litter Genie Cat Litter Box.
Overall, I really liked these litterboxes – the high sides and the open concept are exactly what I look for in a litterbox. My only complaint was about the litter level – but once I figured out what that needed to be, we were good to go. The litter scoops that come with it are fine, but as we all know, I am the number one fan of the Litter-Lifter litter scoop – so any litter scoops without triangular tines aren’t really my cup of tea. However, if I didn’t know about the Litter-Lifter, then I would think this litter scoop is pretty great because it hooks onto the side of the litterbox – nobody wants to put a litter scoop on the ground – gross. I like that it’s all together in one place – just wish the scoop had triangular tines to make scooping faster and easier with less dust. Overall, though, the scoop that it comes with does the job and really works better with the LitterLocker litterboxes than the Litter-Lifter can.
My Ragdoll cats, Charlie and Trigg, instantly used them and never had a problem using them – win-win.
What do you think about these litter boxes?
