How much does the Litter-Robot cost?
The Litter-Robot is $500. That’s a lot for a litter box, but it’s only in the midrange of the price scale for a fully automated appliance like a name-brand Roomba.
Does Litter-Robot use regular litter?
No, the Litter-Robot simply requires clumping litter. We recommend a high-quality, clay-based clumping litter. Some silica gel litter beads and crystals can also be used with the Litter-Robot, as long as they pass through the screen.
How often do you empty a litter-robot?
We recommend emptying and cleaning the inside of the globe every one to three months. Learn how to clean your Litter-Robot: 1. Press the Empty button to cycle the globe clockwise, which will allow the litter to fall through the waste port and into the drawer for easy disposal.
Do cats like automatic litter box?
YOUR CAT MIGHT NOT LIKE it. Self-cleaning litter boxes aren’t ideal for all cats. Larger cats may not comfortably fit inside many models, and some cats are put off by the appearance and sound of the machinery. Bottom line: if your cat doesn’t use it, it’s not worth it.
Can I put my Litter-Robot on carpet?
Placing the Litter-Robot on deep carpet may affect the sensitivity of the unit. Do not put anything in the Globe other than clumping cat litter. You can use water and soap to clean the Globe. Do not sit on, or place anything on the Litter-Robot.
Do you plug in Litter-Robot?
Plug the small end of the Power Supply into the socket on the back of the Base. Then plug the AC/DC adapter into a wall outlet. Locate and press the Power button. The Litter-Robot will perform an initial Clean Cycle that will last about 2 ½ minutes.
How many cats can use one litterbox?
Follow this simple rule: one box per cat, plus one extra. So if you have two cats, you should have three boxes. Making sure everyone has their space can help ease elimination issues. Some owners prefer a hooded box, but some cats don’t like them.
How often do you need to replace cat litter?
Twice a week is a general guideline for replacing clay litter, but depending on your circumstances, you may need to replace it every other day or only once a week. If you clean the litter box daily, you might only need to change clumping litter every two to three weeks.
How does the litter robot know when it’s full?
The Litter-Robot relies on the Cat Sensor to know when your cat is inside the Globe and when it’s time to run a Clean cycle. Here’s how it works: Each time the unit is powered on and at the end of each cycle, the Cat Sensor measures the weight of the unit to use as a baseline.
Can I put baking soda in cat litter?
Add baking soda to the litter. It makes a great all-natural deodorizer for your litter box. Some people ask if baking soda is safe for cats, and the answer is an unqualified yes! Baking soda is non-toxic, and by mixing a little of it with the litter, you can help absorb pet urine odors.
How do I dispose of cat litter?
Put it in the Trash Use a litter scoop to sift out urine clumps and stool and place in a small trash bag. Once all the boxes in your house are scooped, tie off the garbage bag in a knot. To prevent odor and bacterial leakage, double bag your scooped litter. Place in an outside trash can with a tight fitting lid.
