cat - automatic litter box questions

Hi

I have 2 cats that are living with my aunt right now and I am sometimes not able to get there every day to scoop their litter box. I was thinking about getting an automatic litter box for them, but reviews online are either really good or really bad. My boys are pretty large, one is at least 15 lbs and the other about 11 or 12.

Does anyone have suggestions, thoughts, etc. on automatic litter boxes? Please include brands, etc. if possible.

Just fyi... i've tried pine litter, corn litter, and "world's best' cat litter, and as much as i'd like to use something better for the environment, nothing destroys the smell like Fresh Step, so that's what I've decided to use.

Thanks in advance!!

Candace

Everyone I've ever talked to that had an automatic box ended up throwing it away, they all said it wasn't worth the money.

yup, I had one, it was in the dumpster after about 6 months. It is so much easier to just scoop, than to have to clean the nastiness off the thing that scoops the litter into the receptacle. If you can't get there every day, I would get a second litter box, or invest in a larger one instead.

I agree with everyone else that they arent worth the money. If you can find someone selling one on craigs list maybe then you can buy it cheaper in case you dont like it. I have two larger cat litter boxes for my two cats since I sometimes miss cleaning them every day.

Thanks, y'all. I think I will just invest in a second litter box for them. I just hate the scooping! LOL Oh well, they're worth it.

i don't think that automatic little box is useless like everybody does. I think the Litter Robot II is the best accessible automatic cat litter box, certainly. The top charges are easily overcome via the savings on litter and receptacles. There's a three payment plans if you're unable to pay it off at once.

Potential risk of the cat not deploying it might also be overcame. Invest in a hood on your litter pan and train your cat to go into it similar way you'd together with the Litter Robot. In case your cat uses a pan with a hood, training it to make use of the Litter Robot will be a easy. Be patient while training; do not force your cat inside. for further information you can check on this automatic cat litter box
