This Review has been updated 26 times since it was first published in February of 2015. The first time your cat saw you cleaning up his waste, he became convinced that he was royalty and you were his lowly subject, so you may as well find him a litter box that’s fit for a king. The options on this list are great for controlling messes and odors, and some even manage to be inconspicuous. And if you get a satisfactory model, he might just let you pet him — for about three seconds. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Review. Skip to the best litter box on Amazon.
10. Nature’s Miracle Advanced
For those with small houses or apartments where every inch of space counts, the Nature’s Miracle Advanced is a triangular design that allows it to be tucked away in the corner of any room. It has an antimicrobial coating to inhibit the growth of bacteria.
- Nonstick surface prevents caking
- Odor-controlling charcoal filter
- Standard liners won’t fit
9. Nature’s Miracle High-Sided
The Nature’s Miracle High-Sided is a basic, low-cost option for cats who aren’t comfortable in covered models. The extra-low entry lip is ideal for older, less spry felines, but it leaves a wide open space for them to kick out litter.
- Offers lots of vertical clearance
- Mold- and mildew-resistant
- Floor isn’t nonstick
8. Good Pet Stuff Plant
The Good Pet Stuff Plant stays hidden in plain sight. If you don’t have an isolated nook for a litter pan, this one looks just like a house plant in a clay pot. You can turn the entryway to face the wall, and some even spray paint the pot to match their decor.
- Filtered vent controls dust and odor
- Comes apart for easy cleaning
- Rowdy cats may disturb the plant
7. Tidy Cats Breeze
The Tidy Cats Breeze has a removable pad in the bottom that absorbs urine and traps odors, so the whole room it’s in doesn’t smell. It comes with dehydrating pellets that suck the moisture out of solid waste and that are not easily tracked out of the box.
- Generates no dust
- Pellets should be replaced monthly
- Picky cats may not take to it
6. Iris Top Entry
The Iris Top Entry helps to keep the mess contained. Nothing can get kicked out of this one, and the tiny holes on top not only provide ventilation to control odors, they also remove debris from your cats’ paws before they jump off.
- Available in four colors
- No difficult corners to clean
- Older pets may struggle to enter
5. Petmate Booda Cleanstep
The Petmate Booda Cleanstep is a cost-efficient option that does a great job of reducing mess from cats that like to dig before doing their business, while also keeping odors inside. It’s made of easy-to-clean plastic and comes in four colors.
- Grooves help reduce litter tracking
- Good for keeping dogs out
- Lid cannot be locked in place
4. Modkat Flip

- Lid offers 3 positions
- Good for cats that fling litter
- Replacement liners are expensive
3. Arm & Hammer Sifting Pan
For those who dread scouring the bottom of the box for clumps to scoop, the Arm & Hammer Sifting Pan can help. It is a three-part system that allows you to lift the perforated section holding all the waste while leaving behind the clean stuff.
- Results in fewer broken clumps
- Litter stays fresh longer
- A bit small and no lid option
2. Petmate Top Entry
The Petmate Top Entry is a great solution for messy cats. It virtually eliminates granules being kicked out, and any that cling to paws tend to fall back inside. It also gives cats some privacy while going to the bathroom, which is more than they give you.
- Extra-wide opening
- Hook on side to hold scooper
- Made from recycled plastic
