For nearly a decade, we have had a problem with our calico going in places other than the liter box. This seems to be a common problem for which we tried multiple solutions. Seems she would not go in a used litter box, so we had three as we have four cats. So long as one was clean, she was good most of the time. Since we invested in this self-cleaning box, she has been very good about using it. Highly recommended. It would be better if the box was bigger to accomodate larger cats as she has tried to use it and "missed." Also, put paper towels in the bottom of the recepticle for the waste. This allows reuse of the recepticle instead of throwing it away.
I would recommend this to a friend!

I bought this product as it seemed like a good choice from reviews I had seen other places. It was not!! Oh it scooped the feces and littler just fine most of the time. However, I couldnt not get the cover for the waste receptacle that fits on the cover attached to the box to stay on!!! I would get it on then my cat would use it and step on it just a little and pop off it went. Now this wouldnt be a big deal right. However, it fell off over the top of the receptacle which meant if it ran and the opening was covered the feces would just sit on top of the cover and go all over! I never left it turned on because of this!! I bought this to help me with cleaning my litter, but when you cant even leave it run to do its job what good is it! Do not buy!
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

I have had this self cleaning litter box for about 2 months. It was easy to set up, and it doesn't waste litter. However, the lid for the disposable waste box, will not stay on without tape. Also, I refuse to pay $20 for 4 more flimsy plastic waste boxes. I just put in a plastic shopping bag and replace that!
The one complaint I do have about the self clean mode is, if it has too much kitty waste, the motor cant handle it and it gets stuck... so at times, I have to scoop a little out by hand. But 95% of the time it works well. I have noticed my house doesn't smell like a cat box anymore because it cleans twice a day and the waste is closed up.
Also, it is kind of loud, and setting the timer is a pain I still don't understand it! So I wouldn't set it up any where near your sleeping area...
I would recommend this to a friend!

This is, by far, the most HORRIBLE piece of JUNK ever made.
Recommended litter level is useless. Minimum level is not enough for a cat to make 2 trips to the box, max level means the rake gets stuck in the middle of the box, rendering it useless, and in between means the rake has to try at least 4 or 5 times to scoop whatever is in the box. The rake doesn't scoop very deep either.
The space the cats have to use is too small. I have a 4 lb kitten and she has to squish herself up to use it.
The receptacle is horrible. Half the litter is scooped outside of it, it does not reduce odor and I am having to empty the receptacle at least 2 or 3 times daily to reduce smell. If the cat steps on the punched out hold of the lid, you get the litter scooped on top of the lid and not in the receptacle.
There is dust everywhere, even using their litter.
Do NOT waste your money.
If I could give this piece a negative rating, it would be at least -100.
I'm ready to throw this off the highest building I can find and go get something else.
No, I would not recommend this to a friend.

I live a very busy life and sometimes only remember to check the cat box every 2-3 days. It used to be, when I would smell the box, which was daily. Now with the automatic box, it virtually takes care of itself. There is almost never a smell in my home. Many times I have had friends over who did not even know I had cats, because they could not smell the box and it is around the corner from my living room. The only problem that I have with it is the trap door. The plastic insert lid kept falling off when it was opened, so I just taped it on with duct tape and it works fine.
I would recommend this to a friend!

I purchased this automatic litter box over the holiday and can say I am extremely pleased. I have never had an automatic litter box and wish I would have purchase one years ago. I have a busy lifestyle and this is very convenient and really makes the dreaded litter box cleaning easy. It was pretty easy to set up and fit perfectly in the corner of my laundry room. Tabby had no problems using it . . . and I actually think she prefers to have a clean litter box for each use.

my cat steps on the two buttons in the front that are ment for you to push down to close the plastic lid when throwing away the bin that the dirty litter goes in. i had to make sure everytime it was cleaning that the lid would come up. i finially got fed up with fixing the lid that i just took the plastic lid off and now i have two open holes that do not keep the smell in. good product but the disposel should be in the back not the front. i would recommend a different self cleaning box instead of this one.
