An automatic litter box keeps your home looking clean and maintains high levels of hygiene. Although they are bit different and some are a bit costly, getting an automatic self-cleaning litter box is quite beneficial. Apart from being convenient, an automatic litter box is a great addition to your home. Here are three reasons why you should invest in an automatic litter box.
Saves you time and money
The cost of some automatic litter boxes might initially be a bit expensive depending on the type and brand that you buy, but it is worth investing in. The automatic litter box has been uniquely designed with improved technology where you don’t have to throw out the dust free cat litter with the used litter. Accumulated waste becomes difficult to scoop and it smells with time, forcing you to throw away the tray. This is costly with time since you have to keep on replacing the tray every time it gets dirty.
But, with an automatic litter box, waste is easily scooped and does not accumulate saving you the time spent cleaning out dirt. You can spend your day doing more important things rather than cleaning your litter box. It also saves you money for buying another one.
Easy to use and clean
Cleaning the traditional litter box is not only a time consuming but also a tedious task. You first have to ensure that you have the right tools to do the cleaning, especially when it’s full and has changed color. You also have to spend a lot of time removing any stuck dirt that has clamped onto the walls. This is not only gross, but it’s also quite uncomfortable. In case you do it wrong, you might end spreading litter everywhere and you will be forced to take a shower immediately afterward.
The automatic litter box eliminates the need to scoop a litter box. You do not need a brush to remove any clamped waste nor does is there a chance that the litter might drop forcing you to clean. Most automatic litter boxes use trays of refillable crystals instead of the litter you’re used to.
The crystals absorb urine and dehydrate solid waste removing odors, leaving your home smelling fresh with no indication that there is a cat living with you. If you have more than one cat you only need to change it at least once a month (for each cat). When the month is up, all you need to do is just to pull out the tray and replace it with a new one.
Turn from manually picking up a litter box scoop
All you have to do when the waste drawer of an automatic litter box is full is open the drawer, take out the disposable bag, and replace it with a new one. This is because it’s designed in a way that the clean litter is separated from the soiled, clumped litter, leaving a clean bed of litter after every use. You no longer have to manually scoop your litter box.
