I remember hearing about it MONTHS ago here. Well, my second littermaid broke So I asked everyone I knew for the Omega Litterbox for christmas! Everyone was like "You want a .. litterbox..?" It was pretty funny. My grandma took me serious though and my fiance's parents somewhat did.. I got my Omega Litterbox LARGE! And it's working great. I'm going to have to work on getting another. My fiance's parents got me one of those sifter litterbox things (which I don't care much for), but I can use the litterpans by themselves anyway for sick-confinement and the likes. I like having a few extras around. My old apartment had 6 extras (me getting carried away) which were all thrown out. Now I got 2.
To get down to the point, it's cheap, it works BETTER than the littermaid, and it doesn't use electricity and is silent. (unless you have cats like mine that dig dig dig)
I have two Omegas, I LOVE them. There is nothing easier than rolling that thing over, rolling it back, pulling out the little drawer and dumping it. I mean come on! I've tried the littermaid and it's a bigger pain in the butt than that to pull out the old baggy and put in the new one. Hmmmm $35 or $200.....darn thats hard!
