A couple of weeks ago, I posted about the NVR Miss litter box, which has high sides and is perfect for those kitties who like to pee up the wall when doing their business. There was a very active Facebook discussion on the topic because it seems like a lot of people have the same problem!

Some people wondered if the NVR Miss might be too small for big cats. Well, the company is sending me a sample to try out so I will let you know.

In the meantime I learned about a fantastic Do-it-Yourself solution over at Paws-and-Effect, where the gang answered a readers’ question about peeing up the wall and pointed to the Pet Project Blog, for instructions for turning a 25-gallon storage box into a litter box. It’s pretty easy and quick. Head over there and see for yourself.

The kitties at Paws-and-Effect do point out to make sure you sand the opening very well so your cats don’t get cut on the sharp edges and don’t assume you need to use the lid on the box since lots of cats don’t like the covered boxes.

In addition to keeping pee in the box, the big, high-sided storage totes also keep litter in the box for the cats who like to dig (and dig, and dig, and dig) and scatter litter everywhere.

If you try this, please let me know what you think of it and send photos!

Readers, any DIY solutions you’d like to share?
