Rich’s cats Mika and Sashi needed a new litter box that worked great and complemented the look of his modern Brooklyn apartment. Rich searched exhaustively but came up empty handed. In defeat, he complained to his wife until she said, “You're a designer. Why don't you just design one?”
The next day Rich presented the idea to Brett, his then-partner in a graphic design business and an industrial design graduate, who thought the idea was brilliant.
Two years later, after dozens of prototypes and tons of cat testing, the original Modkat Top-Entry Litter Box made its debut at the 2009 International Contemporary Furniture Fair (ICFF) where it earned The Editor's Choice Award for Best Accessory. Shortly thereafter, it received the prestigious Red Dot Design Award. And with that, the Modkat journey to create an entirely new category of litter boxes inspired by design began.
Taking care of the litter box is a big part of everyday life with our furry family members. At Modkat, we're on a mission to make the litter box experience more enjoyable for cats and their human parents alike. We want you and your cat to love your litter box!
An integral part of this journey is listening to our customers and providing the best experience possible for you and your kitty.
If we can do anything better, we would love to hear from you.
