Subject:Electric litter box
Time:12:40 pm
I recently replaced my piece-of-crap (no pun intended) LitterMaid with a ScoopFree model, and I'm extremely happy that I did. The LitterMaid always jammed, and I was constantly hand-scooping it. The ScoopFree has worked absolutely flawlessly. I highly recommend it to cat owners.

OMG That's the one I had (although without the cover) for Lexi. I absolutely loved it. It made it so much easier when I was making weekly trips to Vegas with Richard. I was able to leave her alone and not worry about a mess or smell (from the litter box, at least!!!) I swear by it. Mot people don't understand how a litter box can be worth $140, but to me it was worth every dime.... ENJOY!!!

Cool!

I had the LitterMaid a few years ago for my cats, but ran into similar problems with jamming, etc. I finally gave up in utter frustration.

I may just have to give the ScoopFree a try.

Thanks for the pointer!

We use a Litter-Robot (http://www.litter-robot.com/) and it works perfectly. Be aware that some cats don't like the enclosure. Our two cats have no problem. I just empty the used litter twice a week.

agreed. i got one when they first came out a few years ago (when i was working with you actually!) and it is easily one of the best house-type investments I've ever made.

How often do you refill it? The refill costs look really high, and really wasteful (all the packaging for each refill tray).

For one cat, 3-4 weeks.

There's also a reusable metal tray available.

Our first generation littermaid is indestructible - I love it. The next one though - with a two piece slider mechanism that scoops - is total shit and I hate it. I saw one of these at petsmart today and was almost tempted, but unless I get two it's not going to be worth it because then I'm picking up double the types of litter supplies.

I'm curious how it holds that much poop since it looked like the container part of the tray was pretty small/shallow. Tell me more?

My first generation littermaid self-destructed, and often required manual assistance before it did.

I think the ScoopFree must gzip the poop.

How is that one for noise factor? I'm asking because our litter boxes are in the bathroom right next to the bed so that they're obvious 'no-dog-zones' to keep the hounds from having midnight crunchy snacks.

Quieter than the littermaid it replaced.
