What are self cleaning cat litter boxes?
Self cleaning cat litter boxes are litter boxes with a mechanical device that will scoop the cat's urine and feces after he/she leaves the litter box. The used litter is scooped into a reservoir, which will periodically need to be cleaned. There are many different styles and sizes of self cleaning cat litter boxes. If you have multiple cats in your home, you should consider the jumbo size providing you have enough room for it. Choose a model with a good guarantee. I have several clients with self cleaning cat litter boxes and they love them for the most part but they have had some problems with them mechanically not working after about a year. Check the guarantee on the model you choose to buy. Consider charging on a credit card that may extend the warranty.
