So yeah, litter boxes. Ick, I know. But stay with me…I promise this is also about design! I mentioned the Modkat Litter Box here in January, and I wanted to write about how great it is a little bit more. Our little black kitties are the best ever (if you follow me on Instagram I’m sure you’ve seen their cuteness!) and are very adaptable. We use wheat litter only (good for them and not bad for the environment) and they actually share a litter box. This isn’t usually recommended (but they are brother and sister and have always shared a litter box, at the shelter and all of their foster homes). They are super dependent on each other and don’t mind the “closeness”.
In any case, the design of the ModKat is genius! You can check out more detailed information on their website, but the kitties actually jump down into the litter box and then jump back up. There is absolutely not one grain of wheat anywhere! We joke all the time that the only wheat we ever vacuum up anymore is the wheat we spill while scooping! And there is no smell. We scoop at least once a day, but because the box itself is deep and tall, no smell ever really escapes. Sure it’s a very expensive litter box (we actually bought it around Christmas when they had a $50 off coupon), but the best part? They offer a 30-day money back guarantee.

Oh and the design…it’s actually beautiful! In fact, I bet if I hadn’t talked about what it was in the Laundry Room post, no one would have noticed. We have a white one that seamlessly blends into the area in front of the utility sink and it’s a breeze to scoop and even to take out the insert and clean it all the way (we do this once a month). I can’t believe this thing is actually a litterbox! ModKo really thought of absolutely everything. The box is so pretty you could have it in an open location or in a spare bathroom and no one would think anything of it, seriously. So sleek and modern…no wonder the shipping box is printed with their slogan, “Where modern cats do their business.” Indeed.
Oh and for all you doggie lovers, ModKo is coming out with products for you soon as listed here. I bet we’ll be seeing a lot more fantastically designed products from them in the future!
