I first saw the NVR Miss litter box on the Floppy Cats website. I reached out to NVR Miss to see if they would be interested in allowing me to review their box because I am a cat behavior consultant and veterinary technician. I am constantly making great recommendations to my clients and wanted to have some more cat products I could whole heartily recommend and would use myself.
My previous alternative to this box was using a large sized storage tote which worked for litter scatter but was not aesthetically pleasing like the NVR Miss Litter Box. Having a fancy looking litter box is preferred over a cheap alternative if you want your house to look nice or your animal rescue to look professional. The other commonly used alternative to this box is using a super large litter box which is great for some families but not good for people working with limited space.

The entrance on this box is on the side instead of an end like a traditional box which encourages the cat to align their body (lengthwise) in such a fashion that will prevent them from kicking cat litter out or spilling it over the sides. This alignment will prevent the cat from peeing toward the low entrance also which can prevent a total mess. This box is very high sided as you can tell from the photograph above. The walls of this litter box will eliminate any potential risk of having cat litter kicked out from rambunctious cats or cats who like to play in cat litter.
The NVR Miss Litter Box features a short entry for a pain free and quick entrance for senior cats or those with mobility issues like cerebellar hypoplasia. The highest selling point of this box is that it can save cat litter and keep your house clean while taking up minimal space.
At first I thought the box was too small for my 3 biggest cats who were all over 15 pounds. I have one Ragdoll, one Maine Coon and one Siberian who were very curious about the box and wanted to use it immediately. Over half of my personal cats voluntarily used this box the very first day without hesitation and the other half of my cats ended up using it after two days. The box comes in white and brown but I find the white to be the most appealing color for my household and find it used the most.
The animal shelter that I gave one copy of the NVR Miss Litter Box to also found big success in keeping cat litter off the floor which was becoming a big chore for staff to keep up with. They stated that they would like to have two more boxes because the cats in their community room like to make messes. Having a box that prevents litter scatter and spillage will make any animal shelter look beautiful along with saving time for the staff to work on more meaningful tasks.
The box will hold approximately 14 to 15 pounds of cat litter and still have one inch of clearance from the opening. The litter box is 21 inches long, 15 inches wide and 11 inches high which makes it a very compact box which is easy to store or find a spot for that does not conflict with your house layout.
This box is ideal for large cat families and fancy homes that want to safeguard their house from the inevitable spillage of cat litter that you would see with a normal litter box. This box has also been highly praised for its ability to keep a cat from peeing onto the wall behind the box for cats who have been known to urinate vertically or stand when they urinate. I had first hand experience with a cat in the last week who always vertically urinated despite being fixed but did not like going to hooded boxes and I immediately knew what to recommend for their problem.
The NVR Miss Litter Box is manufactured in Canada with high grade material that prevents the build up of bacteria from cat urine or feces that you would see with other litter boxes. The smooth finish, flat floor and radiused corners allow for easy cleaning and prevents urine clumps or feces from sticking.
