The best self-cleaning litter box has to work for you, your cat and your pocket book too...self-cleaning may mean completely automatic, but some litter boxes are more automatic than others.
..so let's review some automatic cat litter box features, and find out which is the best self cleaning litter box...
Our First Question...What does "Self-cleaning Cat Litter Box" mean?
To clean a litter box you have to use a scoop and manually remove clumps of wet litter and solid waste. With a "self cleaning litter box" you get three different types of assistance.
Mechanical: A simple self-cleaning litter box that provides a mechanical means to separate the waste from the litter, so you don't have to scoop it yourself. Hand operated.
Sifting: The next step up is a sifting litter box that not only separates the waste, but also moves it to a receptacle, so the cleaning is hands-free. Automatic electric or battery operated.
Fully Automatic: Finally, a fully automatic, self-cleaning cat litter box cleans the litter, and the litter box, so you never have to worry about litter box cleaning again. Automatic electric or battery operated.
Maybe it all comes down to how much you hate a dirty cat box, but we've tried them all over the years and these are the best self-cleaning litter boxes in these three categories...check out the reviews...
Enjoy the journey and always remember...Cats Rule!
