hi everyone! I just have a question for anyone who has the litter robot or uses clay litter.

So I have a 9 month old sphynx and I was always told that clay litter was bad for cats so I have my baby on pine litter and he seems to really love it and we love it too. But we are strongly considering getting a litter robot, but it looks like it only really works for clay clumping litter. Does anyone have any issues with using clay litter? Is it actually bad or am I just misinformed about it?

@asphynxmom hugs n head smooches. I don't have a litter robot so sorry I cant give advice on it.

I am using dr elseys unscented clay litter. some can have allergies to scented litters, wheat, walnut , etc litters so I stuck with unscented. my oldest will be 11 . no issues.

surely members using litter robot will chime in.

I'm not too knowledgeable but I personally use clay in my litter robot. It would certainly have to be something that clumps in order to work in the robot I would feel. I've used Arm & Hammer Slide for years

is it worth buying? I have a pet safe scoopfree at the moment and it really isn’t all it’s cracked up to be. Mine don’t mind the Crystal litter but I think because Sphynx pee and poop more than normal cats it just doesn’t last anyway near as long as advertised. Been considering the litter robot but wonder if it’s as good for smell containment and emptying/cleaning
Also it looks so big!

I'm pretty sure there is a version of Feline Pine that is clumping. I tried the regular pellets (cats didn't go for it) but I remember seeing the clumping version. It cost a little more but if your cats are already used to pine letter it might be the best way to go.

I am in the process of transferring to "The World's Best Cat Litter". (Actual name) It is made of corn and is as close to dust-free as you can get. I think it does track a lot less. And it does clump as well.
