A New Scoop on Litter Boxes

Hagen’s CatIt Hooded Cat Pan with Door Reduces Odors and Creates Privacy for Cats

MANSFIELD, Mass – Most cat owners don’t give much thought to the litter box – it’s generally a nondescript rectangular plastic tub relegated to some out of the way place in the house and scooped of its solid “deposits” on a regular basis.  Millions of cat owners have been using the same set up for years.  But there are issues with the open plastic tub – cats like to bury their waste, and the litter ends up getting kicked out of the box when they do.  And then there’s the odor – even the most well-kept litter boxes can become rather smelly.  To deal with the odor some cat owners will buy a hood for their litter boxes, but all that does is trap the odor within the box, making it a less desirable place for Kitty to do her business, which may lead to accidents.

The designers at the Rolf C. Hagen (USA) Corp. took all of this into consideration when they developed the CatIt Hooded Cat Pan with Door, a uniquely-designed combination litter box and hood that keeps litter in its place and eliminates odors, while giving Kitty a sense of privacy.  The Hooded Cat Pan with Door is two pieces – a raised-back litter box, which minimizes excess litter strewn from the pan, and a hood with a two-way, clear plastic door, much like a cat flap, that increases privacy while helping to reduce odor.

The two-way, clear plastic door is what separates the CatIt Hooded Cat Pan with Door from other hooded litter boxes on the market.  The door, which functions much like a cat flap, is dotted with small holes to allow air circulation, aiding in the reduction of odor while allowing easy access – both in and out – for Kitty, and further minimizing litter scatter.  And because it is clear, the door lets in light and gives the cat a feeling of openness, while securing privacy.  Additionally, the hood also holds CatIt’s Replacement Carbon Filter, especially designed for the Hooded Cat Pan with Door.  The Carbon Filter is made of a high-quality carbon-impregnated polyester mesh that absorbs odors from the litter box by trapping them as they pass through the filter, which helps keep the litter box smelling fresh and clean.

The base of the Hooded Cat Pan with Door is a heavy-duty, high-quality litter box on its own – the raised back allows Kitty to bury her waste and kick litter while preventing litter from being thrown out, which is especially helpful if the cat happens to be an aggressive kicker.  The hood locks securely to the base with sliding clips and also has a convenient, built-in handle, for easy transport.

The CatIt Hooded Cat Pan with Door comes in two sizes – Large, 22.2″L x 16.5″W x 18.3″, and Jumbo, 22.2″L x 19.5″W x 17.2″, both of which will accommodate any size cat, including large cats.  They are also ideal for multiple cat households.

The CatIt Hooded Cat Pan with Door is available at pet retailers nationwide.  For more information, visit, or call 1-800-225-2700.
