Title: Pet litter container

Abstract: This application relates to an improved container for holding pet litter. The container has a bottom surface and an outer wall extending upwardly from the perimeter of the bottom surface. The container also has an inner wall coupled to or seated on the outer wall and supported above the bottom surface. The container is partially filled with pet litter to a level below the bottom edge of the inner wall. The inner wall extends adjacent to and inwardly of the outer wall and functions as a urine splashguard, thereby preventing litter clumps from sticking to the outer wall and fouling it. This eliminates the need to dump the entire contents of the container in order to clean the outer wall. In one embodiment of the invention, the inner wall is pivotably and removably coupled to the outer wall. In another embodiment the inner wall has an upper rim which is supported on an upper edge of the outer wall.
