The Tidy Cats Breeze Cat Litter Box System is a unique product in that it combines the basic features of a sifting litter box with innovations like special cat litter pellets. The litter box itself consists of three pieces – a base, a sifter, and a top. We found the quality of the materials to be sturdy and assembly was fairly straightforward, though snapping the pieces together was a little tricky.
Once assembled, however, the pieces stayed together well, and it was easy to move the litter box around. In terms of setting it up, it took less than a minute to pour in the pellets and add the cat pad to the slide-out tray.
In addition to the litter box, the Tidy Cats Breeze Cat Litter Box System comes with a special scoop with slots large enough to accommodate the pellets. The scoop itself was a little small, but the size was appropriate for the size of the box. We did have to shake the scoop for a good 5 seconds to sift the pellets through, however, so the slots could have been a little bit larger. The materials were decent, and the scoop has a hook on the back so you can hang it on the back of the box.
When testing the Tidy Cats Breeze Cat Litter Box System, we found that our cats liked using the box for urine but did not use it at all for solid waste. Generally speaking, however, our test cats tend not to like non-traditional litter for feces but will gladly use them for liquid waste.
The liquid passed quickly through the pellets, which did absorb only a little bit, while the pee pad was very absorbent. We also found that the unit contains odors well, only noticing them when we slid out the tray to change the pad. We were unable to test the odor for feces, but numerous customer reviews have mentioned that the system doesn’t control feces odors as well as urine.
Overall, we think that the Tidy Cats Breeze Cat Litter Box System would be a good option for single-cat households if you take the time to transition your cat (or start with a kitten), but some cats just don’t like the size of the pellets, and it may not be ideal for multi-cat households.
This is, in fact, something the Tidy Cats website mentions – using one system per cat, plus one extra.
