my zen garden, let me show you it
so, just before going to burning man, we got one of these:

LitterMaid robo-catbox

a LitterMaid robo-catbox!

OMG do I love this thing! apparently, so do the cats - I'm pretty sure all 4 of them are using it on a regular basis. (kinda like the *clean* poo huts out on the playa - once you know it's there, you want to go there all the time.)

it senses when a cat is in the box, then waits 10 minutes and runs its rake. every day I empty the container and scoop the box to get the bits the rake misses. so easy to do, and the kittehs always have a clean box! even Princess Bruce loves it.

I'm reminded of a roommate who seemed to do her darndest to NOT keep up behind her cats. I ended up scooping the litter box daily...and since she had gradually accumulated four cats, one box was NOT enough under the circumstances.

She finally got the hint when she walked into her bedroom right after I had made a pitch that we needed a second box...and one of the little darlings, in the middle of the bed, looked at her, "left a gift", then leaped down and left.

Tell me they aren't intelligent. :)

ooh I just got the ScoopFree one and my kitty has never been so happy. It took me a while to come around to the blue crystals, but they dry up all the kitty pee and so no clumping bother.

What really got me, bourgeois lady of the hills I am now, is the litter subscription...they send it to your house, so you don't have to lug it home at 2am from the 24hr supermarket when you forget to buy it with your reg groceries. It's a bit pricey, but Rizzo's worth it :)

Glad It's working for ya...

I bought one of these about ten years back and ended up returning it because it didn't work quite properly.

These days, I just scoop daily or every other day. It's part of being a kitteh owner....

But I can see how it would be a boon with four cats!

Re: Glad It's working for ya...

I was initially skeptical, because I remember hearing reports that they didn't work all that well, and/or that cats frequently rejected them. this one came with a 90 day guarantee so I figured I had nothing to lose... and the cats took to it immediately. I sprinkled some of the old litter on top when we first set it up and before I knew it both of mine had tried it out.

it sure does make me happy every time I hear that motor going!
