This automatic cat litter box was rated The Best because it cleaned more quickly and thoroughly than all other models during evaluations by the Hammacher Schlemmer Institute. After its sensor had detected that a cat had used the box and exited, The Best model waited only seven minutes to begin self-cleaning, while lesser models allowed waste to linger for as long as 20 minutes. The Best model removed debris without the clumps and clogs that plagued other units, and its design is free of the standard rake mechanism that can injure cats and is prone to jamming. Instead, The Best Automatic Cat Litter Box offers animals a private, fully-enclosed haven that empties after use by rotating upside down and sifting waste into a bottom drawer. It works with any clay-based clumping litter, a carbon filter helps prevent odors, and the drawer can be lined with kitchen garbage bags (not included) for easy waste disposal. Plugs into AC. For cats up to 15 lbs. Black or Beige. 29" L x 22" W x 24" D. (26 lbs.)

Works wonderfully for my swirl of 7.5
from Advance (My Paradise), NC
I am owned by 7.5 [the .5 one is a neighborhood visitor applying for residence] feline supervisors who heretofore have been using 4 large 56qt (53L) Sterilite and 16.5gal (625L) Rubbermaid storage bins in 3 locations in my house. Each of them is filled with 40 pounds of Dr. Elsey's Precious Cat Litter.I loathe having to clean them. I have put this in the area of two of the boxes and purposely not scooped them. So far, this autobox is holding its own and getting more and more attention/attendance. Fantastic!!I have only to dump the contents of the catch drawer into an empty litter bag, put a new scoop or two of litter into the machine, and grin like a fool! It won't take long for any holdouts to discover the new place that has all that constantly cleaned litter!! Happy kitties! Happy crazy old cat lady! What's not to love about this?
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

from Sandy, Oregon
Both my cats started using it immediately and I think they are no longer going in places they shouldn't which was a problem. Leave the little piece of plastic film over the control panel. I found the step had urine on it once, but the unit was not damaged. It's somewhat noisy and since it is located in the bedroom I put it on a timer so it is off at night. That works fine and it cycles in the morning when the timer turns it on.

Pros and Cons
By Cats in Toronto
Our 2 cats began using this auto box after spending 24hours in the room with it. It was painless to put together and cats took to it with ease. Only downside is it is not "cycling" or rather filtering the wastes automatically. This could be due to the fact that our cats are not stepping in , hence, not activating the step sensor. I suspect the cats are jumping up into the entrance and jumping out of the box . I had to press the "cycle" button manually . Overall, I think it is still a good purchase with the ease of operation and odorless aspect.

Something wonderful for the cat owner
By Havana Brown
from Clayton, GA
There are only 2 things i am not happy with, for a 70 yr. old female it is heavy, and it is bulkier the your average litter box. It is however, a wonderful invention. Very easy to assemble. Cats took right to it. Dumps the litter with out spilling a drop. Expensive, but worth it.

The Best Automatic Cat Litter Box ever
from Schenectady New York
easy set up and maintenance
WOW WHAT A CAT OWNER"S DREAM
By Ron & The Boys
from Long Beach, CA
With this cat litter box you'll never have to worry again changing overflowing litter boxes. Just snatch up the liner with your cats droppings, ties it off and then easily dropped in your home trash bin. The design is so strange that it makes my kittens even more inquisitive...
Best thing ever invented!
from Farmington, Arkansas
This is the best cat litter box ever!, no smells to worry about, it fills up, change the bag and back in business again, easy to clean, and it's life time guaranteed.

It Reall Is The Best
from Woodbridge, VA
I looked at this product many times but just couldn't get myself to buy it based on the price. However, I decided to go for it because I really do not like having to clean the cat box and because I don't want the cat to have to deal with a mess, I do it twice a day. This looks, weighs, functions and cleans as well as it says. It was VERY easy to assemble. It was a pretty big box but it wasn't very heavy. It works like a charm. What I would recommend for the first week or so, while your cat gets used to it, is to leave it turned off so that your cat can use it like it used its other box. Turn it on a couple times a day so it will clean itself when the cat's not around. It waits 7 minutes to clean after the cat gets out, but just so there is no chance of it scaring your cat before its accustomed to it. The short of it is, it works great and does exactly what it purports to do. WELL DONE. Good investment.

i have four cats and only one will use it. the only con I see is that it sits high(but that is to catch the litter clumps) but I think this is why my others won't use it so I put a small bench like thing in front of the entrance so to make it easier for them to go in. will come back and let you know if the others started using it.
