Rubbermaid also makes high sided boxes with an entryway in one of the short sides. The ones I have have 11 sides (on the 3 sides) and I've seen Bandit actually standing up and tinkling against the side, so it's definitely high enough - and he can be a vigorous digger too. I got them at

That's what I do too. The s/o NORMALIZES the pH of the urine which deals with both struvite and oxalate AND makes it OK for the kitty without the problem to eat it too. The only thing you really have to worry about is that the s/o is a pretty high calorie food. Barb+Smoky the House Puma+El
