Cat owners that wish to take the work out of cleaning the cat litter box The ScoopFree Ultra Self-Cleaning Litter Box automatically cleans your cat’s litter box to keep it fresh and clean. You no longer have to scoop all the time since the work is done for you. Replacement of the litter is a breeze and your cat will love having a clean box all the time! Crystal litter is absorbent and takes the moisture out of waste to control odors Waste is locked away to eliminate smell and having to touch the waste Timer allows for 3 different raking timer settings Replacing the litter is easy and hygienic For cat’s with health issues – there is a counter to track cat’s output Since the box is self – cleaning, it can be left alone for weeks. Sensors within the box determine when your cat uses the box and the crystals do their job of absorbing and dehydrating. The waste is raked and then pushed into the trap. The litter is supplied in a tray that needs to be replaced every few weeks. The maker of the ScoopFree Ultra Self-Cleaning Litter Box provides the following tips to get your cat used to this new box: Put the ScoopFree box next to the original box for 1 week to let the cat use both Mix up the litter types in both boxes Stop cleaning the old box. Since your cat prefers a clean toilet, this encourages him to use the new box Remove the old box once he is using the ScoopFree box Pros: Self-cleaning for weeks at a time Crystal litter is significantly more effective at removing odor than traditional litters Built-in health counter Hooded to keep litter in the box and gives your cat privacy Cons: For multi-cat households, litter needs to be changed approximately once a week The cost of litter – $39.99 for a replacement pack of 3 trays. Verdict: The ScoopFree Ultra Self-Cleaning Litter Box, based on the majority of the reviews, saves time and labor in regards to scooping and keeping the box clean while controlling odors. Owners with more than one cat need to be prepared to change the litter tray as often as weekly. This seems reasonable considering more urine and waste is involved. I see cost as the major deciding factor. This litter box is without a doubt expensive when compared to a standard litter box and replacement litter. On the other hand, have you ever met a cat owner that enjoyed maintaining the litter box? ScoopFree seems to be a great solution that can save time and effort for a smelly job. I would give it a thumbs up for cat owners that have the budget for it since it takes the work out of caring for a cat. For medical reasons, I am able to have a cat in my home, but I am not allowed to scoop litter or handle waste. So for me, the ScoopFree would make it safe for me to care for a cat again!
