Self cleaning cat litter boxes

Self Cleaning Cat Litter Box - Anyone who owns a cat will tell you that they are fun to have around, great pets, and easy to care for. They may also tell you that the downside of owning a cat is the need to scoop the litter box once or twice a day. The next line out of their mouth might be that they wish they could find a self cleaning cat litter box to make that chore a heck of a lot easier. No matter how diligent you are there will be days when you can’t get to the box, or when you simply forget to scoop.

I don’t have a self cleaning cat litter box at this point, but I used to have one. It was actually more of a pain than it was a help. This type was not automated, but built in a way that a screen caught the clumps in the box. You had to roll the entire covered box in such a way that the clumps fell over a screen, and the clumps were then deposited in a removable tray. It rarely worked well, and I ended up getting rid of it.

Since that time, I have come across a type of self cleaning cat litter box that I would like to try. I haven’t purchased it yet, but I really want to. This type of box has a motor, and a rake of sorts. There is a motion sensor that senses when there as been no movement in the box for a specific period of time, and then pulls a rake through the litter, depositing the clumps into a container to be emptied at a later date. I’m not sure how well this type of self cleaning cat litter box works, but so far, I haven’t seen many complaints about it.

If you are looking for a self cleaning cat litter box, you can look in specialty stores and online for different models. The prices will vary, and you should look up reviews of different models before you decide to buy, and also look into recalls. Also keep in mind the temperament of your cat when you shop. Some cats are very particular about their litter box, and may not warm up to a model with bells and whistles that scare them. If you buy one, and your cat seems to be having accidents, it’s probably because the new box scares them, and you might have to go back to scooping each day.
