I'm just curious. I was given my first littermaid as a gift, and I loved it! When it finally died, I bought another one, and now wish I could afford a second one! All my cats love them, and they sure make keeping the litter box clean and litter box odors down! I have a foster cat that will pee on the floor if his litter box isn't clean, so the Littermaid has been a life saver at our house!!!

I purchased one about a month ago. So far, I would give it a great rating. At first, it terrified Punky, but she got used to it.

:( It didn't add the 4th option-it was suppose to be never tried them, but have considered it.

I got mine for only $49.99 on E-bay with free shipping. I think it was used, but it sure looks brand new, and works like a dream!

I have a love/hate relationship w/ Littermaid after using three over the last four yrs or so. My cats like them, they seem to keep the odor down, and I don't miss digging for treasures. The only thing I find challenging is the REAL cleaning when it's time to disinfect and clean the rake part. It takes such a long time compared to classic boxes. You have to get your screw driver and you can't immerse certain parts in water. My ex-husband accidentally broke two of them because he (yes, sadly true) sprayed them down outside w/ a water hose while I was at work, trying to surprise me w/ clean boxes. The water leaked into the motor and we had to trash both. Anyway, it takes me about 25 to 30 min to clean the Littermaids compared to 10 min for the classics. I'm not counting soaking time. I have found those Lysol wipes most helpful for the non-immersable components.

It's true they do take a little bit more time to disinfect, but I find the time they save in twice daily litter scooping more then makes up for it!

I have also had mine for about a month now. My cats use it willingly, but they still get a little freaked once it starts to scoop lol. They all rush over to it to check it out.

It's a bit louder while it's scooping then I thought it would be, but that's ok. I really don't even hear it anymore.

My only worry is it not working after a year and then having to buy another one, (not saying this will happen though.)
Nothing like buying a $100.00 litterbox every year!

My first one was used when I got it, and I had it for nearly 3 years before I had to replace it-I just checked E-bay, the seller I got mine from is still offering Littermaids for $49.99 and free shipping.
