Cats require that you promptly clean up their litter boxes after they have used it. Many cat owners like to put off cleaning up the litter box, as it is not exactly a fun task. If you do not frequently clean up your cat’s mess, they may not want to go to the bathroom in their litter box anymore. Instead, they may choose to go in the bathroom in another place of the house, meaning you will have an even bigger mess to clean up. You do not have to worry about this with a automatic litter box cleaner!
There are two types of automatic litter boxes. One type has an insert that you can lift, and it will bring up the clumped together waste. (You will need to use clumping litter, like Natures Miracle Odor Control Clumping Litter – 10 lbs). This type of litter box is much easier than the traditional scoop and go type. If you do not enjoy the task of cleaning up your cat’s litter box, this is a great solution that is relatively cheap.
A more expensive automatic litter box is an electric kind that will automatically clean the litter box without any work from you. It is almost more of a household appliance than an actual litter box! As mentioned before, you will need to use a clumping litter, such as the Natures Miracle Odor Control Clumping Litter – 10 lbs, and this “appliance” will remove waste after each time your cat goes to the bathroom! There is a built in rake that crosses the litter box once to remove clumps of waste, and then crosses it back to smooth the litter out.
The LitterMaid Elite Mega – Self-Cleaning Litter Box, pictured above, is a genius automatic litter box. It will automatically clean the litter box exactly 10 minutes after each use. The LitterMaid Elite Mega – Self-Cleaning Litter Box will move the waste into a seal-able container so you will never have to touch it. There is also a great safety features that ensures that the rake will NOT move, or will automatically stop if it is already in motion the second your cat steps into the litter box. This litter box is also large enough to fit more than one cat if necessary.
