Default Self cleaning litter box

Anyone have one that works? Donít care about the cost, function is the only concern.

Or does anyone want a cat that likes to piss on the mat under the litter box rather than in it. Sweet cat, but he only likes litter that is scooped about every 12 hours.

Had one years ago with the last cat we owned. It worked good out of the box but still needed to dispose of these plastic liners which didn't hold much.

I built a raised platform shartcanned the liners and it dumped into a medium size plastic kitchen garbage bag.

Worked great after that mod.

Yes used it for 8 years. You have to use litter made specifically for it though. Otherwise they don't work. People told us they didn't know we had a cat. No smell... Scoop Free self cleaner ($160 with lid on Amazon) Litter is Ultra Pearls micro crystal is the litter. My wife is telling me this as I type. One bag a month, save the UPC and after six they mail you a coupon for one free bag. Bag is $10. This box has never failed and works great.

If you have room, a second box may help. Worked with ours who, at 17 years of age, started to miss the box and wasn't willing to learn how to get into a self-cleaning unit. Just having a second box elsewhere in the house helped.

We use the Tidy Cat Breeze litter system, not self cleaning but it has hard pellets that allow the urine to pass through to a tray with a liner underneath so there are no clumps to deal with, sift out the solid waste from the top section and dispose of the liner from the lower section. No odor and 100% dust free. 3 cats 2 Breeze litter pans I "service" them once a day when I get home from work

Once a day is the part that wonít work for me. I refuse to deal with cat piss more than a few times a week. 2 cleanings per week, with a complete change once a week has never been an issue in the past. Now suddenly itís unacceptable. Also gone sometimes for 2-3 nights.

The breeder we got our cats from has one of these. You did say budget was not a concern.

Sorry to hear that. Our breeder likes hers and at given time she has upwards of 20 cats in the house. When I was there it was rolling all the time. My brother tried the auto raking kind, and it rusted up from the cat pee. We use a couple of boxes, they are restaurant table bussing boxes and only have to clean them once a week. We have two cats.

Found this review site, hope it helps.

littermaid classic. I built a box to elevate it cut a mail slot in top of elevated "floor" threaded the trash bag up from under the box into the area where the trays would sit and it would go 4 - 5 days minimum before changing bags.

edit:

I cut the bottom of a tray out passed the bag through the bottom and over the sides of the tray so the waste was raked into the false floor in the tray into the bag under the elevated box.

My wife does it 2-3 times a week also & never a problem. For me..... I love the cat but I don't work well with her exhaust, I have never touched the litter box.

I had one-a Catgenie. PITA to keep working. You had to use special litter and hook it up to a water source and drain, as well as electric.
Never worked consistently...the cats hated it as well. It got to the point they'd drop a turd right beside the box just to show their displeasure.

I wish this was an option. One is declawed, and both have been indoor cats since they were kittens. Now about 11 years old.

How long do these things live?

Damnit. Offending cat is Siamese, and is the younger cat.
