It is never fun having to scoop out a cat’s mess when they relieve themselves in the litter box. There are cat litter boxes that actually do this task for the cat owners and they are very cost effective as many brands do not require a custom litter in order to use them. One of the best brands of self cleaning cat litter boxes is made by Littermaid and is a great option for any cat owner.
When considering getting a new pet, particularly a cat, there are many factors that are taken in to account and the litter box is one of them. At the end of the day, having to clean a litter box should not be considered when thinking of getting a cat. For those who do find this to be an issue, there are now litter boxes that clean themselves so the cat owner only has to remove and throw away the tray and there is no scooping involved.
There are brands such as Littermaid that do the scooping of the waste and put it into trays that can be thrown out. There is a sensor that detects when a cat has used the box and then it determines enough time for the waste to clump before removing it. These use two separate types of litters for the cats to use.
The first uses a clumping litter that can be purchased from the company or the cat owner can purchase their cat’s favorite brand. This makes it easier to get the cat used to using a new type of litter box. The second type uses a crystallized litter that offer more odor protection with the only downside being the cat may need to be trained to change to this litter type.
Either method of cat litter uses the disposable self cleaning cat litter trays. They can be tossed into the garbage when they have hit the mandated lifespan. This means no more scooping, no more smelly boxes and more time to play with the kitty in the home.
