NVR Miss Litter Box Giveaway: Best Cat Litter Box Ever!

We’re excited to share some great news. After trying every type of litter box possible, we’ve found the Holy Grail of litter boxes and you can win one!

Merlin kindly consented being photographed in the name of cat behavior science. This is what pooping in heaven looks like. Note the sweep of tail, expanse of space, the fresh air surrounding an arched back. If a cat could, it would choose this ideal scenario but most can’t. It’s up to us to find the most comfortable cat litter box. As a holistic cat behaviorist, I think like a cat. This photo illustrates why most cats hate a covered litter box and why they need a roomy box with higher sides.

The lovely Canadians from NVR Miss sent us (we’ve never been more proud to be Canadian!) a NVR Miss litter box. What do we love about it? Everything.

For comparison purposes, we placed a NVR Miss next to two others. Note the high walls for privacy which prevent mess from litter kickers. If you have a cat who prefers to pee vertically, this design is magic. The entrance is low enough for even old boys like Merlin to navigate. The flat floor with radiused corners are easy to clean. The sturdy plastic in a pearlized taupe color is neutral for most decors.

When our big boy Domino arrived we improvised a jumbo litter out of a storage container for him, but this is much more attractive and practical.

  1. I have lots of kitty cats. Moved up here to northern , NV. from Las Vegas ….. with only 4.
    Since being here almost 8 yrs , I have many more. A feral mamma cat , that I have tried so desperately to catch , just keeps having babies.
    My husband found 5 kittens in our garage 2 yrs ago.
    They are now adults living in our house. ALL spayed and/or neutered.
    They are a handful. But I love kitty cats.
    My husband passed suddenly this past March in a car wreck. :*(
    It’s been a very big adjustment for me & all my kitty cats.
    This past May , I found 6 baby kittens underneath my house.
    They are now living inside with me & the clan.
    They have an appointment to be neutered & spayed on the 31st of this month.
    I also feed the strays outside , I feel so bad for them being out in the freezing cold.
    Since I don’t have a car , I collected boxes and blankets , put them and food in the garage for any stray that needs it.
    Right now I have a stray in my bathroom , she/he ( won’t let me close enough to check ) needs to see a vet this Thursday.
    Thank Goodness I get some help from the Animal House in Elko. They pay for the vet visits , and when they can , they bring me cat litter & cat food.
    I have 3 cat boxes right now , and could really , really use another one.

    Sorry for the long letter..lol I get to talking about cats & can’t stop. I have loved them since I was a baby.

    Thanks for listening
    Have a great day
    Hugs
    Cheryl

  2. Yes! Yes! Yes! This is exactly what my cats need. They could also use a ramp that has low sides and some grip so they can climb into and out of the litterbox.

  3. I have three cats … one of them I have gone through a year of hell trying to litter train. I have never ever had that problem with a cat before in my life — and I am a DIEHARD CAT LOVER !! I’ve gone through I don’t know how many different forms of litter without success !! I would DEARLY love to win this and give this litter box a try …. I am almost ready to give up on her.

  4. I love staying up to date with you on your site and on Facebook! Thanks for the chance at such an awesome giveaway~ Looks like a kangaroo kitty in the pic…a mad one! Thank you!

  5. The NVR Miss litter box looks great! My cats would love it, I have three cats and only one plain little litter box =:( Please enter me in the giveaway.Thank you!

  6. Both of my cats are big boys and I’ve had a hard time finding the perfect litter box for them. Last one was a storage container that is about 8 inches tall. Works so far but it isn’t pretty!

  7. I have a very big boy who fits just fine into the oversized litter box he has…but he has some trouble stepping over the highish entry. This one looks like the entry would be lower, making things easier for him. :)

  8. This looks great – I’d love to see if my 2-year old cat, Remy, would use it. Lately she’s been refusing to use her covered litterbox and is using the bathroom sink instead, which is pretty gross!

  9. My little ‘princess’ would love it! She absolutely hates covered litter boxes. High-sided boxes are great as she kicks AND stands AND really flings litter when she covers. She also likes it to be in the middle of the room… Odd little creature, but I love her!

  10. But will it fit my Maime Coon? He’s been using a huge storage tote with a hole in the side. I wish your picture showed a cat in the box so we have simething to guage the size.

  11. Holy cow! This is the most amount of comments we’ve ever seen! Everyone wants litter boxes! Well, we’d like another one too. You just can’t have too many. Thanks, Layla! Our email is edensp1@hotmail.com We hope the Cat Wisdom kitties can make our big party this weekend!

  12. I have three cats…one is a former feral and she LOVES to kick her litter around! I have fallen in love with the NVR Miss litter box (don’t tell my husband!) My cats would love to give it a try!

  13. I’d love to win this box for my all my cats, especially Gremlin, who sometimes goes right outside the box. It would be perfect!

  14. I have eight of my own, 4 life car foster cats and various other foster cats always coming in and out. Out of the 12 that consistently live in my home, I have 8 boys. Most of them are kickers and high sprayers. This box would be great for us!
    Thank you for your consideration. I will spread the word through the rest of the rescue group about these boxes.
    Thank you!

  15. Pick me, pick me, pick me! LOL Love the look of this box. Right now I use several plastic storage containers, like those used for holiday decorations, just the smaller size.

  16. I know my Two new Bengal Rescues would love this box. They hated the covered one and Motec even guarded it refusing to let Mink use the covered one. I’ve had to take the cover off for the time being and put it in the tub.

  17. I have 7 full time cats in my home, 1 forever foster and multiple other cats and kitten fosters through out the summer. I am always looking for the perfect litter box for all the cats, there never seems to be one that they all like.

  18. I have 7 full time cats in my home, 1 forever foster and multiple other cats and kitten fosters through out the summer. I am always looking for the perfect litter box for all the cats, there never seems to be one that they all like.

  19. Congrats Sue!
    Wow lots of folks joining in the fun now. This looks like one way cool kind of potty. We would luv to have one of these babies. Much luv and purrs Skeeter and Izzy >^cc^< our cool cat eyes lol

  20. OMG! I have been searching for a decent litter box for three years! I’ve been through 12 boxes and nothing seems to work for our Mr. Miagi aka “Big Man”. We adopted him from the MSPCA three years ago and he was at 31 pounds. We have him down to 24 but he’s still too large to fit in a box comfortably and without messes. Please, please, please!

  21. I have 8 indoor kitty cats that would love to try one of these out.
    I have been looking for the perfect cat box for my fur kids , and haven’t found one as of yet.

    Thank You
    Cheryl

  22. Thank you for this post and giveaway! The whole litter and litter box thing is a huge pet peeve with me. So many cats like to stand on the edge of a box to go. Also, for some reason the covered boxes do not help those with ‘out of sight, out of mind’ syndrome. Cats like to be clean! SCOOP your boxes. One BIG box per cat, at least. Dirty litter boxes? Imagine your only choice being stepping barefoot into a poop and pee filled litter box! Okay, I’m done — for now :-)

  23. This would be awesome. I have 3 older girls so the low step in would be lovely. I have one who pees vertically and all 3 are happy litter flingers. I may need 1 or 4 of these, off to check out the site.

  24. This litter box would be perfect for my big boy (18#) Benny Bump. He is known for getting all four legs in the litter box, but his butt often hangs over the edge. Think this would solve my problem of urine on the floor! Thanks for a chance to win!

  25. A littler box that big boy Tigger won’t accidently pee out of because he doesn’t have enough room? That does sound like heaven!
    I am always glad to hear of the things you have tried and found that work.
    thanks Layla.

  26. I have a litter kicker and an edge hanger. I would love a NVR miss box. Using a shoe storage container right now, but the walls are too low.

  27. Would love to win this for my little angel Ferris. He’s turning 1 on May 14th and it would be an awesome treat for him…. and me

  28. I am always looking to try new litter boxes! My girl may be average size, but she loves to pull the litter out of the box this seem like it would deter her a bit

  29. This is the holy grail of litter boxes!! I have been searching high and low for a box for my older cat Dr. Pepper. She has chronic UTI problems and sprays rather than sits to pee. The high walls on this litter box would be a gift from heaven for us. I would LOVE to win this if possible and I’m sure Dr. Pepper would appreciate the privacy as well. :)

  30. I would love to win this for Oscar my little litter kicker, especially to keep the litter out of my bed! Is there anywhere in the US to buy these? The last time I looked it was only available in Canada and cost way too much to ship to Michigan.

  31. only 22″ long? : (

    too short for my big boy. his doc tells me he needs a litter box that is at least 1.5 times his length–preferably longer–so he can stretch out & feel comfortable. i think the one he has now is about 27″ long.

    bummer.

  32. I recently joined my two cat household with a three cat household. Our FIVE cats seriously need some positive ways to interact and also need enough pooping areas! We have three litter boxes right now, two uncovered and one covered and use two different types of litter. But one cat is still unhappy and is currently using the bed for her private pee-ing space. Hope we get to try this out

  33. We are looking to adopt another rescue kitty whereby we’ll be adding more cat boxes. The NVR Miss looks wonderful and could possibly replace one of our covered cat boxes.

  34. With nine (9!) cats (yes, I’m “that lady who lives on the corner with all the cats”) and several cats who are stand up pee’rs, I could really use a box like this! :)

  35. Oh my gosh. My two cats sure do need a new litter box. I have a huge 50 gallons container but I want to get the +1 rule enforced when we move next month…so I will have to go box shopping. This would be ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!

  36. My calico “Spooky” would appreciate this. She seems lately to be dissatisfied with her litter box, spreading inordinate amounts of litter out of the box and sometimes missing it completely cause she’s perched on the edge so far. I never thought of a new box, perhaps she’s trying to tell me something.

  37. This looks like a good option for my cat, Whistler, who often stands dutifully in the box when he has to go, but ends up pooping outside the box and shoveling litter on nothing at all.

  38. I am always open to try a new type of litter box. I would be happy to give a review of its performance. Cats have preferences, mine like the same one of 2 choices. This would be an interesting test.

  39. If I win this, I’m giving it to a friend of mine. She needs litter boxes that cats actually like desperately! But if I still had my dear cat, I would have kept it for her.

  40. I have a kitty who steadfastly refuses to poo in the box. She’ll pee there, but she will very deliberately poo outside the box, on the linoleum, a few inches away. Maybe having another box around would help… it’s worth a try! I have a ‘regular’ litter box, and a large tote that I’ve converted into a litter box. Maybe this, being a combo of the two, would do the trick.

  41. Ooh. I’m intrigued by the different positioning of the entry in comparison to another large, high-walled litter box I’m familiar with (not pictured). I’m curious to see if that would eliminate the puddling at the entry point. :)

  42. I have two long haired kitties who love to flick the litter everywhere it shouldn’t be. They the make a pile of it on the floor and then use that instead of the box. We have tried many litter boxes and other ideas but nothing helps. This box would be a lifesaver for us!

  43. I have 3 fur kids at home – one is a 22lb Maine Coon mix, and we are always on the look out for anything size appropriate for him. We would love to have this!

  44. The kitties of ‘No Cat Left Behind’ would love to win this litterbox for our Cat Playroom!! It seems perfect in every way, both for the kittens and the older cats who love to ‘kick up sand’. :)

  45. I have 2 cats who sometime miss the litter boxes they have. I have learned to place newspaper under them and it helps. Just hope they aren’t eating some of the shreds of the newspaper they leave around the apt!

  46. I would love to in this for my 2 kitties! I have a 12 yr old senior cat, and a 2 yr old large Snowshoe siamese. This would be ideal for them!

  47. Such a great idea! I have a large Bengal that is getting older, he now likes to perch on the side of the boxes with just his back feet in order to pee. Or with our covered boxes, just back himself up to the hole and go at it. Problem is we have two regular boxes in the house which means most of the time he’s peeing over the box. With five other cats besides him in the house this NVR Miss box would be ideal!

  48. This is awesome! My big boy would love this. I got the largest litter box I could find and I still feel like he needs more room.

  49. I have two long haired kitties who love to flick the litter everywhere it shouldn’t be. Then they make a pile of it on the floor and decide to go there instead of inside the box. We have tried several different types of litter boxes and other ideas to keep it in the box but so far nothing works! This would be a lifesaver for us! Thanks!

  50. My two kitties could definitely use another litter box, we only have one right now and it’s like any time one of them is using it, all of the sudden the other one suddenly has to go too in that exact moment. (Go figure)..

    This would be great!! :)

  51. I would LOVE to try out one of these litter boxes. I have 4 very messy boys. 3 of them enjoy the privacy of the hooded box while the other likes the ‘topless’ variety. Sadly I had to get rid of the hoodless box because he was spreading litter all over the place! I think this box may be the answer to our prayers!

  52. I have a litter kicker… This would be awesome as I’m getting tired of having the majority of the kitteh litter on the floor instead of in the box. Seriously, it’s like he’s throwing a party with kitteh litter confetti. Lol.

  53. I would love to win this! I have 3 *long* boy cats who love to stand when they pee. We purchased a high-sided cat box, but it’s starting to look like it’s not high enough! I would love to try this one out! Thanks!

  54. My kitty that tries to dig to china for a place to poop would LOVE this box…well, actually, I would, because there wouldn’t be litter everywhere!

  55. My cat Luna tries to be good but lots of times she misses the box! It would be great to win this litter box and make sure she never misses again!

    Thanks
    Kacie

  56. I have two cats, but the Siamese is really a pistol about peeing against the wall of the box. He has difficulty getting into the jumbo box so he has to use the short box and you can only guess what happens. I use puppy pads that do help when he thinks he is in the box but definitely “outta the box” business. lol…he is going on 15 and has always been lazy about covering his business while my 18y/o female is very dutiful in proper potty etiquette.
    I really could use this box. It just might be the meeting of my cats and mine worlds….lol

  57. I do kitty rescue and would love to have one of these!! Since I dealing with different cats all the time, it would be great to have one of these super ones, to make them happy!! ~thank you!

  58. Litter boxes have lots of designs that are not great for all cats. Would love to try one that helps them not go outside the box, especially one with no top. My cats like the no without a top, but not everyone gets their butt where it should go.

  59. I have a couple of kitties that have potty problems – mainly wild scratching & hanging over the side – this looks perfect … I’d love to win one.

  60. I have 3 cats…all different ages. This would be so helpful..my oldest girl is arthritic and it would be really easy for her to get in. I also have one that digs to China if you know what I mean! Litter everywhere! Its a good size to keep litter in. My baby cat is teeny and it would be awesome for her too!

  61. My Maine Coon broke his hip and had to have surgery, we have been looking for a litter box that he can use, that is big enough but because of the surgery he can get in, I would love to win this for him.

  62. What a great looking litterbox! I have a house full of cats who would really love to try this. We have tried everything from a automatic litter box to a giant one made for dogs to just about everything in between!

  63. I have several cats including a senior kitty who this litter box would be “purrfect” for. It would also be nice for my male cat who doesn’t always fully squat when he goes!

  64. Oh man..I have a litter kicker and compulsive shoveler in my 2…this would be great! Does this constitute my entry?

  65. I have 3 senior kitties, and my “big girl” Lucy sometimes is a vertical pee-er and has known to get it on the wall and the radiator. She’s also messy when she covers her waste. In general, she’s messy! She (and my other kids) could use the help of a litter box that is also easy to get in and out of!

  66. My 4 now inside strays would all love this. I have one dark covered & one opaque covered, because they’re all kickers & one rubs on the walls after. They’re all about 7 yrs & will be getting harder to get in & out.

  67. Oh, we’ve got the improvised storage container going on right now, so this would be fabulous! We’ve got a littler kicker, so something that would contain that would be great.

  68. Oh please please please pick me to win this litter box. I have a 3 legged kitty who is a champion litter kicker and another pudgie who misses the litterbox regularly because they are always too small….I would love to have one of these!!!

  69. My poor kitty is slowly going blind and has difficulty with hitting the kitty box. Poor girl misses often. This looks like a good solution!

  70. I would love to win this cat box! With 5 finicky about their boxes cat, I am sure they would appreciate ‘the best’.

  71. This would be the answer to our prayers! Our long, tall, privacy loving, fickle cat would love this! We have 3 and he’s the only one who will pee outside the box occasionaly. This is a must have!

  72. I would love one of those! I have a side peer and currently have to use covered boxes in order to keep it from getting everywhere! Thanks!

  73. My girls are litter kickers…. I had the blue one in the picture, but it was awkward & had a top, that I eventually stopped using. My Momma Cat is getting older & having issues with all four legs. They would LOVE this NVR miss!! As would I!!

  74. Looks so perfect for my older cat, who has been very picky about her litter box especially being siamese and having her quirks!

  75. Oh this would be sweet….
    We have 2 rescue cats. one likes hitting the sides of the litter box. Both love to leave kitty litter trails as well LOL
    Meow

  76. With a shelter Maine Coon and a tabby we have three litter boxes, but the big guy seems to grow tired of one or the other no matter how clean. This seems a great alternative that both cats can also use.

  77. Ernie and Maley would loooooove this box and me too becasd it will save me the time I spend cleaning the sand from the floor :)

  78. I had to move in with family, and the blending of the feline households has been a little bumpy. At night, my 4 cats have to stay in the bedroom with me…which means having a litterbox in the room! Litter gets tossed out and scattered around the room, then stuck to the bottom of my feet, then in my blankets when I get into bed. This high-walled litterbox would be great.

  79. would love to try this with my own big boy, he is very long and tall and using the uncovered litter boxes are just not adequate for his needs…my fosters would also benefit from this litter box. would have to decide who got to use it.

  80. D-2, my oldest, is indoor and outdoor, and he prefers going outside. Jonquil and Emily are indoors only, and big fatso Jonquil needs a big box. He says “Please.”

  81. Would love to try this for my foster kitties – they are Maine Coons, very large (especially the two males), and can kick litter out of the box like no other cats! Have tried so many boxes that I thought would work, but didn’t.

  82. With 4 ‘keepers’ and various foster kitties the right litterbox is important. Would be great to add to our collection. Was just thinking of revamping our litter situation.

  83. I would LOVE to win this for my 6 rescued kitties – 3 of which are definitely kickers and 2 that love to reach in the boxes and scoop out their own little gems and bat them around like toys. Geesch!!! The high walls would help keep everything in where it belongs until the morning and evening scoopings (by me).

  84. My girls kick litter everywhere, and my boys tend to shoot a little higher than the walls on the current litter boxes, so I would really like to try one of these!!!

  85. I *need* to win this litter box. My kitty Baker is quite the kicker. I live in a small one bedroom apartment and his litter box is in the bathroom. I would love to finally not have to step on kitty litter when I get out of the shower!

  86. Wow! This would work great! I think I have the box labeled #3 and I still get litter all over the floor from the kicker & pee out the back from the vertical peer. Thanks for the chance to win.

  87. I have 9 cats, and I would LOVE to win one of these! I am always trying new litterboxes, and that one looks like it would please several of our Siamese cats. Even if I don’t win, thank you for posting about these- I need to find one for my herd!

  88. This litter box would be perfect for my big guy, Ferdinand! He’s a big boy AND kicks litter everywhere. I’d love this box for him!

  89. this looks super interesting! Cody is a MAJOR litter kicker. I am wondering if this will also work in a litter cabinet or are the sides too high?

    If you think it will work, please enter us! Thanks!

  90. OMG! I cannot believe I won last weeks prize! Yippe! Thank you! Those little boxes look so much better than the regular kind. Sounds like so much less mess too.

  91. This is the best litter box ever! You’re right, the design is magic for vertical pee’ers, and also for litter kickers. Don’t enter us in the giveaway, we already have a couple of these fabulous boxes.

    • I have three kitties, one is a champion litter-kicker. Am currently improvising with a Rubbermaid container. We would love to win your product!

  92. if i don’t win, i may break down and buy one (or many). i just rescued a cat that rises to a standing position as he pees. right now, i’m using cardboard to extend the height on the brand new boxes i bought that turned out to be not quite high enough.
