HOW IT WORKS

You can use the Petsfit as litter box enclosure or cat house. Your cat will access the unit jumping through the opening door located on the top level. To access the bottom your pet goes through a circle-shaped hole in the middle layer. To exit, your pet needs to jump up to the top level and then exit through the cat door.

In the first layer, you can place items such as cat food bowls or water bowls, toys, bedding, etc. At the bottom, you can place the litter box or just place the cat bed.

TIPS

  1. It can be difficult to assemble by yourself but with the help of somebody else to hold parts, it’s a breeze.
  2. Leave the door opened the first week to let your cat get used to the unit.
  3. The bottom is not waterproof. If you have a cat that has litter box accidents, make sure to caulk the bottom and get a high sided litter box, placing a litter mat at the bottom.
  4. If your cat doesn’t jump you can place a ramp to facilitate your pet the access.
  5. If you think the middle layer is too slippery for your cat, get a piece of bunk carpeting to place on top, making an opening on it to match with the hole.

 

CONCLUSION

Petsfit Double-Decker litter box enclosure is an excellent piece of furniture that will provide a good solution to hide your cat’s litter box and provide a place for your pet to hide or eat, both at the same time.

The unit is attractive and much bigger than how it looks in the pictures, make sure to read the dimensions before ordering.

I recommend this unit for cat owners and especially for homes with a dog and cat.
