Pull out shelf hardware that can handle some weight

I was going to try and make a cat litter box furniture but Ive got a question about a slide out shelf. Something like the one in the picture.

I want to be able to slide the litter box out. Litter can have a lot of weight to it so I need to be sure to use something that can handle it.

What sort of hardware do I need that can handle the weight?

Plenty of slides will handle that. I think I've seen them rated for 60lbs. Even home centers like HD and Lowes carry them.

Look for full extension and ball bearings.

My first thought is drawer slides - I've seen them rated for 100#

My first thought was how the cat was gonna get in there with the doors closed . If you can't find them locally, look at Rockler's online. They have it all.
