I'd wait till bathtubs go on sale at Home Depot

The thing is not size as much as it is design. I've seen a very shallow huge one that won't last a week because it's too low sides. Ollie uses the largest size from Petco with hood and it works. He's 20 lb. When he visits we have one from PetSmart with high sides, works fine.

Mac is just shy of a year and he is our first Maine Coon, but so far we've had a lot success with this one: https://www.petsmart...tml?cgid=200153

 

It's a Whisker City box, dimensions are 34 x 19 inches wide with a depth of 10 inches. You lose a couple of inches of "box space" for the side compartment (which we use to store the scooper brush and plastic bags). I have heard of other people using plastic storage bins as well, but can't speak to that as a routine use (we've only used it when travelling). Good luck!

Thank you for all your suggestions. I have one similar to what Cognitive uses when Ollie visits. I have 3 cats that use the same litter box. I clean it daily. It just seems that my Maine Coon is as long as the box. From corner to corner and has a hard time moving about. She steps back after doing her business. And she cant maneuver around. Maybe it’s my imagination. Or she is just still young and hasn’t figured it out.

Since you all seem to be using relatively the size boxes. I’ll keep using what I have. Thanks again.

This is what we are using for Winston.... I can't remember the exact dimensions but as you can see it is a GIANT Tupperware storage box. They don't sell litter boxes big enough, as I'm sure you've already noticed :lol

To be honest... He's almost too big for this box too. But it's gonna have to do for now as our washroom isn't big enough!! Good luck.
