Self Cleaning Litter Box

1) Do any of you use one?

2) If so, which brand and where did you get it?

3) Also, how much did you pay for it?

4) One last question, do they actually work?

Ciao!

I am interested in some thoughts on this myself. Are they a godo thing to have, or are they not worth the money?

Yes.

I believe its littermaid? I think so. And, sorry I dont know where its from, my parents got it

So, I also dont know how much it was.

Yes, it works. But, sometimes its dumb and stuff, but I think its a lot better than having those litter boxes

I have never owned a self-cleaning litterbox. With just one cat, it is easy enough to just scoop every day.

I am going to move this to cat chat since it is cat related.

I think that Alicia has summed it all up just perfectly!

I was just wondering what peoples experience was with them. They aren't exactly cheap so it is a bit of an investment especially if they do not work. I found this one via google:

The LitterMaid is the best thing since sliced bread! No scooping, no odor. ONe of our members just posted last week that it was the greatest invention of all time. Well, it's one of the best, in my opinion. My first one lasted about 5 years.

Don't put litter in above the full line. That practice finally killed mine. I had some help when I was ill, and the perpetrator wouldn't listen. I found one on ebay, a "buyer's remorse model," brand new for about $75 instead of the $150 they used to be. Watch for specials! You won't be sorry.

1) Do any of you use one?
My mom uses the Littermaid for her cat. I use....'hand held sweeping action'

2) If so, which brand and where did you get it?
Littermaid...Ebay for the first one...it broke when my brother took the cat and dog ...so he bought a new one. You can find them at Petsmart...petco...Walmapart, Target...etc. Petsmart has other types of automated things too...they dont even look like they work that well though.

3) Also, how much did you pay for it?
65 bucks on ebay.

4) One last question, do they actually work?
Oh yeah...my mom loves it. Id get one in a heartbeat if I could. READ their directions when it comes to getting your cat accustumed to the new machine because....it can scare the HELLO out of a cat.

I have wanted one forever! I hda heard bad things about them though. But Ska is a picky kitty and hates going in the box if there is even one poo in there.

He pees on the shower mat instead, so we were seriously looking into one.

I think I'll re-llook now that I have some good comments...
