Ok, this might be a great idea! I wonder how they balance it/keep it from tumping over? It must have extra heavy plastic on the bottom. Thanks so much! I have tried other types of litter. She's just weird...lol!

Hi Wendy, They do make a top-opening litter box: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/images/B0002ZS20I/ref=dp_image_0?ie=UTF8&n=284507&s=kitchen But maybe Pepper is objecting to the texture of the litter on her paws? Have you tried using different litter - or even an empty litter box? Also, if nothing else works, you could get some of the doggy "pee pads" to put under the box - that way the urine gets absorbed by the pads & makes clean-up much easier. Good Luck!
