If cleaning up after multiple cats has become a hassle, you might want to use an automatic litter box.
As a disclaimer, no automatic litter box receives consistently positive reviews. Automatic litter boxes promise a lot and seldom live up to expectations. Individual results are largely dictated by the type of litter you use and how much your cats use their litter box.
This LitterMaid model is made for multiple cat households. Its extra-large basin contains 50% more litter than the traditional LitterMaid, helping it to accommodate heavy use in a multi-cat home. The litter pan measures 17 x 14 x 9.8 inches, so it’s respectably-sized, but not the largest on the market.
Like all LitterMaid units, this automatic litter box features a sensor that detects your cat’s presence in the box. Ten minutes after your cat uses it, the litter box starts a cleaning cycle. A rake runs across the litter bed, scraping up clumped litter and depositing the clumps in an odor-controlled receptacle.
This litter box is compatible with any clumping or silica gel crystal litter, but works best when paired with a hard-clumping, fast-acting product.
- Compatible with the litter of your choice
- Designed for multiple cat households
- Ideal for people who hate scooping
- Litter tends to fuse to the rake
