The best Ragdoll litter box, period...

When you have a BIIIG cat, or two, you need a big litter box. You may think that your friendly neighborhood pet supply will have what you need; not so...

When we first got micio, we got one of those cute little boxes with the hood on them. He QUICLKY out grew it. We moved up to the largest litter box the pet store had. Well, that worked for a bit, but micio soon had trouble maneuvering in this. He is just about as big as ragdolls get, so this is perhaps only a problem for the upper limit. When we got byco it became apparent we needed another solution...

I had the bright idea of going outside the pet supply world and into the cement mixing world. :) Meet the best ragdoll litter box. It won’t win any beauty contests, but it's durable and it's BIG. It just so happens that it also fits very nicely in our office closet :)

My next idea was a kiddy swimming pool, but luckily they seem to be perfectly content with their cement mixing tub...

Hi! Thanks for posting this. I too have a huge ragdoll (just over 20 lbs.) and have had the same problem with finding a litter box big enough for him! This is a great idea!
Also, he had the FHO surgery two weeks ago tomorrow and seems to be recovering slowly. It just doesn't seem like the same cat as pre-injury! I'm hoping he'll return to normal soon, because it breaks my heart to just see him lay around and seem so dis-interesting in things. Thanks for your blog. It does offer some encouragement.

Glad you thought it was a good idea :) It has served us well...

Don't lose hope on your cat fully recovering. It took Micio a couple months before he was in good shape, but he did finally get back to his old self... Just took him in for his annual and the Vet says he has great muscle tone and the leg is in great shape!

I have two girls (12lbs, 15lbs) who always see their feet in the box and don't realize they're going right over the edge on the floor. This is a great idea! Thanks :)

Yeah we had exactly the same problem :)

My kitty is a big girl too. I googled big cat litter box and this came up. Thanks! I also conveniently work at Lowe's. I never thought about finding a something for my cat there. :P

I'm dying to see the litter box, as we have a similar problem, but the link no longer works. Can I have a product name? Thanks.
