Ask any individual residing with cats concerning the worst a part of their cohabitation, and their reply will seemingly relate to scooping litter. It sucks, particularly in a multi-cat residence, and much more so in a small residence.

Then I bought my fingers on the Litter-Robotic 3 Join. Lengthy story brief: it has been an absolute game-changer for my residence, and I can’t think about ever going again to a daily outdated litter field. Even when the $499 worth ($449 for the wi-fi-less model) is a troublesome tablet to swallow, the comfort of just about by no means having to consider litter is value it.

I took my time earlier than scripting this evaluate as a result of I wished to ensure the expertise truly held up over an prolonged interval. It’s been 4 months since I obtained my unit, and with common utilization by two cats, it’s largely been clean crusing since.

I ought to add the disclaimer that I’ve not examined some other automated litter packing containers. I selected to attempt the Litter-Robotic because of the size of time it’s been available on the market, however I can’t let you know whether or not the Litter-Robotic is the most effective such system. I can also’t assure your cats will get used to it. I can solely verify that in my residence, it’s carried out its job with aplomb.

Should you haven’t seen a Litter-Robotic in motion, right here’s the way it works:

  • Add clumping litter into the basin.
  • Wait in your cat to poop or pee.
  • After 7 minutes (or 3 or quarter-hour, relying in your settings), watch because the Litter Robotic’s ‘globe’ rotates to sift by the litter after which dumps clumps of pee and poop right into a receptacle bag beneath the globe.
  • About a few times per week, relying on what number of cats you could have, dump out the collected litter and add contemporary litter to the machine.
  • Clear the globe (not as arduous because it appears) and substitute the carbon filter each few months.

This official video would possibly make it clearer:

Regardless of the advertising and marketing discuss, the guarantees above largely mirror my very own expertise.

I’d realized of the Litter-Robotic shortly after we adopted our first cat (Parsnip, a languorously loveable lapcat), however had largely dismissed it for its worth. After getting our second cat (Pomeline, a wonderful fireball of a feline) and transferring to a smaller residence, my girlfriend and I believed we might use a break from all of the scooping (have I discussed scooping is not any enjoyable?).

Be warned: this factor is large, and extra so in the event you get the elective ramp (Parsnip is an outdated man and wishes just a little assist). The Litter-Robotic takes up a large footprint in comparison with a daily litter field. However in follow, this ended up being much less of a difficulty than I believed it will be.
