An automatic cat litter box can make caring for your cat’s litter box easier and less time consuming, especially if you have a multi-cat household. The ScoopFree Automatic Cat Litter Box is one option and is a good choice for those who want a litter box that can be left alone without any maintenance for days or even weeks at a time.
SccopFree Automatic Cat Litter Box Product Description
The ScoopFree Automatic Cat Litter Box is designed to sweep your cat’s litter box waste into a covered receptacle at the far end of the litter box, where the waste can remain out of sight and odor-free for several weeks at a time. The litter box features a rake that is regulated with a sensor so that the rake does not move while your cat is in the box. It is designed to traverse the length of the litter box 20 seconds after your cat leaves the box, sweeping the waste into the covered waste container.
The litter box also features also a disposable litter tray which slides underneath of the litter box. The tray comes pre-loaded with FreshStep Crystals, which is the type of litter which must be used for this litter box. Every few weeks, the disposable tray is changed by removing the top portion of the litter box, covering the tray with the cardboard cover provided and installing a new disposable litter tray by simply sliding the tray in place and replacing the top portion of the box on top of the tray.
ScoopFree Automatic Cat Litter Box – Product Evaluation
I have three separate ScoopFree Automatic Cat Litter Boxes in use in various locations throughout my house. I have been using them for roughly 4 years now and have experienced virtually no mechanical problems with any of them.
All of my cats accepted the litter boxes with no problems. The box does make a mechanical noise as the rake moves across the box to clean it but the sound does not seem to bother the cats. If anything, they seem curious about the operation. I have never had a problem with the rake moving while there was a cat in the box or otherwise endangering any of the cats.
The litter contained in the tray together with the covered waste receptacle does seem to retain any odor and I have never noticed any offensive smells from the box.
The only downside to the box is that it utilizes only the ScoopFree Disposable Litter Tray. The trays come equipped with FreshStep Crystals and no other type of litter is acceptable for use in this litter box. My cats have always accepted the crystals and never refused to use them. However, for a cat with a strong litter preference, this could be problematic. In addition, I have had difficulty locating the ScoopFree Trays in any of my local pet stores. They are easily obtainable online though.
Who Can Benefit from Using the ScoopFree Automatic Cat Litter Box?
I would recommend the ScoopFree Automatic Cat Litter Box to anyone who wants to simplify their cat litter box maintenance chores.
