We've been dealing with the age old problem... What to do with the kitty litter box? We found

dogs to get to the cat food. The top was notched out so that the food bowls
would fit in snugly and not topple out. Yes, I bought 2 extra in the event one
gets broken. I'll probably be the one to break it at the sink while cleaning it.
