:BigSmile: Well, I finally saved up enough pennies to justify buying a litter robot! I just finished ordering it and I can hardly wait for it to arrive. I collected the rest of my special duty pay from school and decided to reward myself--I haven't charged anything for over six months (which has felt like an eternity I might add.), the vet bills have quieted down a tremendous amount, and I just can't keep up with the scooping. Mabel likes a pristine litter box or she will punish me by pooping right next to it. :Angry: And with 8 cats, the litter boxes are never pristine for long--I could make scooping my life's work. I have a couple of the LitterMaid electric raking kind, but they aren't heavy duty enough for my crew. If everybody likes it and will use it, I want to save up for a second one for upstairs. Just opening a drawer instead of scooping sounds wonderful --and it will make my little Mabel so happy to have a clean box to use. It is also supposed to cut the amount of litter you use to about half. That in itself will be a blessing.

Ooooooh! Congrats! Good for you for rewarding yourself! Even if it is with a kitty toilet! :LOL:

Let me know how the crew likes it! I have the Scoop Free but the replacement trays are about $20 a piece here and since I now have the 2 cats, I am changing trays every 2 weeks. I like not having to scoop, but I really am just not liking having to shell out that kind of money each month. I have looked at the Robot and think it is a great idea and would be fantastic. Just so spendy! However if I look at the $40 I am spending a month in replacement trays, it would pay for itself in no time!

Great news Susie!! Congrats! Make sure to let us know how you like it. I've been thinking about getting one since I'll have 2 Sphynx here after a bit. (My breeders litter is due this coming week, I can't contain myself!) I already scoop Snuffie's box once a day and it gets to be a chore more and more it seems. I'm sure two kitties will require 2 scoopings a day and a liter robot sounds like my up and coming bestfriend! lol

You wild woman you, Susi794! Taking your special duty pay to buy something so decadent as a litter box for your feline friends.

Not too many people would have done that. You are a wonderful caring soul. I hope that robotic litter box turns out to be the best thing you ever spent your money on!

I have been eyeing an robot litter box myself. There is one out that reuses plastic grocery bags.. of which I have a renewing supply. I clean out both boxes twice a day. The Sphynx are a clean and demanding breed aren't they?

Very exciting. You will have to give us a review to how it works, especially how it copes with multiple cats. I want one, so will be watching for an update.

I shall have to bribe my teenager with pocketmoney, to do mine . :LOL:
