Non-diggable Bunny Litter Box

Hi everyone!  We have been getting many requests on how to build the non-diggable litter box.  One of our supporters came up with this idea (Photos courtesy of Shary!).  I built it myself, and it works well.  Binky Bunny also sells litter boxes and screens, so if you like this style, you can order from them:

Here are the instructions for building your own:
  1. Purchase a 10 gallon Rubbermaid Roughneck storage tote - you can find this at Home Depot or similar stores.  Cut the "door" to the box where you want your buns to go in.
  2. Purchase a roll of vinyl-coated hardware cloth (also from Home Depot).  You will make a platform with this inside the bin.  It comes in a roll, so it works best to flatten it on the floor before trying to work with it.
  3. It works well to make it about 1 1/2" high, and double-fold the long sides for sturdiness.  To make a good fit in the bin, make the mesh 36 squares long and 24 squares wide (this includes the surface of the platform, not the sides)
  4. Once you have it cut to fit, you can use zip ties to hold the folded sides together.
  5. I recommend using heavy-duty cutters.  I found these at Home Depot, and they cut through both the plastic and hardware cloth:
