Wouldn't it be nice to not have to use that wretched cat litter scoop anymore? Well these days you don't have to with the invention of automatic litter boxes. These cat litter boxes are awesome they take all of the chore out of cleaning up after your cat. There are many different types and styles of these boxes on the market today and they all vary in pricing. Let it be known now though that these boxes are not cheap, but when you are talking about never having to use a kitty litter scoop again, I believe they are worth every penny. I am going to list 2 Awesome Styles of Automatic Cat Litter Boxes that should give you a little bit of clarity about what is out there.
Rake Style Electric Cat Litter Box
One of the really innovative styles on the market today is the rake style. These boxes have sensors in them that detect when the cat enters and leaves. After a predetermined amount of time (commonly ten minutes) the unit will send its rake across the litter which effectively clears the box of the waste. It is scraped into a removable receptacle that is easily disposed of or emptied.
Turning Automatic Cat Litter Box
There is another type of automated box on the market the cleans by spinning very slowly. Some of these units are totally enclosed and might not be great if your cat has issues with being in enclosed areas. Others though aren't. I am particularly impressed with the mode of operation for a particular model that spins very slowly and move the wast up a little conveyor belt into a waste receptacle, effectively keeping the litter always fresh and clean. The enclosed container also keeps the odors down.
