Default Low sided litter box?

My cat is having some difficulty getting in and out of the litter box. The
ones I currently have are large with higher sides. Does anyone have any
recommendations for a larger box but with lower sides? I think I read
somewhere here about a dog litter box that is really low on one side for
easy access. Anyone know about this one?

Thanks.

Sue

We got one at PetSmart. We really wanted higher sides to keep
Her Highness from kicking litter all over. What we found has both:
three high sides and one very low side, which would make it easier
for your cat to enter. It also has a nice tray that fits under it, and we
use a mat under that.

Thanks for the info. I'll have to check it out. Is the box pretty large?
I have a 15 pounder that likes to move around in the litter box and so many
of them are too small for him.

I bought the very *large* VanNess box with a dome cover but discarded the
cover. What I wanted was the base -- larger than I could find in regular
litter boxes with 3 high sides and 1 side that is lower.

Yep! Nice and big. Go look at them, they might be just right.

These are the ones I use: 22"W X 28"D X 9"H

Petco and Petsmart carry them- about $22. http://tinyurl.com/bmm2a

The boxes come with a removable slide that fits in the grooves in the front.
