Do you have it, what do you love, not like? Does it charge or have to be plugged in all the time? Thanks!
Yep, I have one. I love, love, love it. If only I could get Helen to use it, I'd be completely liberated from scooping!! (My other cats pounce her when she comes out of it, so she was using it when I first bought it but got scared and started peeing next to it instead)Do you have it, what do you love, not like? Does it charge or have to be plugged in all the time? Thanks!
You have to use clumping litters, so the crystals wouldn't work (I used to use those "pre-robot" and loved them). But you don't have to use clay litter. You could try swheat scoop or world's best? Or, have you tried Dr. Elsey's Special Cat? It's a clay litter but dust free and perfume free. The only kind you can't use is Feline Pine because the pellets are too large.I have been heavily considering getting one. I have a Cat Genie, but the place I moved to there really isn't anywhere for me to set it up since it has to be hooked up to the water outlets. But here's my question about the Litter Robot - Would it work with crystal type cat litter? That's been my biggest hesitation, I like the enclosed design, and I like that there's little to no smell with it, but Oogie has alot of respitory problems caused from the life of neglect he led before I got him. He does alot better if I stay away from dusty clay or clumping litter, so right now I'm using the crystal litter for the cats for his sake since it doesn't have hardly any dust. But I'd really like to change to a nice automatic box that I wouldn't have to scoop - With 3 cats now, I'm cleaning the box at least 2-3 times a day, not that I care, but it does get old!
Dr. Elsey's is sold at Petsmart and World's Best is sold at most pet stores.I've tried Sweat Scoop before, and didn't like it, it doesn't clump together very well and the broken clumps would leave the box stinky, when I used that I had a Litter Maid, and the box ALWAYS stunk, I'd have to change litter 2-3 times a week and it was still hard to keep the box from stinking! so I got rid of the litter made AND the litter, and bought the Cat Genie LOL I've never heard of Worlds Best or Dr. Elsey's Special Cat, where would I look for those brands? I'd try anything! I love the convience of the automatic boxes, but I'm not going to put Oogie's health on the line for convience! I'd love to try one of those 2 and see how he tolerates it.
that is a very good question...i wonder if they would too...I really want one! i will have to wait because 300+is just a bit more money than I have at the moment!I was just about to order one of these, so I am happy to find this thread. To those of you who already have one, is it critical to buy the extra options they offer...lip extender, fence or daylight globe?
And Peeve at 3 lbs 60zs would be too small now to trigger its' action? Correct? Peeve has his very own catbox and the two Scottish Folds have their own catbox too. So it would be possible to set this new Litter Robot up and all three cats could use it, right?
My 14 pound SF leaves very large clumps when she pees. Would these three inch clumps be too large for this box to handle?
If several of us here got together and purchased our units at the same time, do you think the manufacturer would give us a price break? Asking is free. Thanks in advance for answering my questions.
