Is the litter robot your only litter box? I had been using a purfoma litter box before the new purchase of the robot last week. The purfoma was hard to keep clean because of the rakes. I would love to only use one litter box for that reason. Can my robot handle three cats?
We use only the Litter Robot for all three cats. Two of them are very big Turkish Vans, and the third is a large domesticated ex-feral. If I got lucky I have succeeded in attaching a photo of our huge male TV. I know Ragdolls get large, but not often as big as Samwise.
While we occasionally remove and replace the litter bag on the second day, it can easily handle our three cats three days. Then we simply remove the bag in the base, replace it with another standard plastic 13 gallon "kitchen garbage bag," the dirty litter bag goes into the trash ("dust bin," to our dear friends across the pond) and all is well for another 3 days. What a relief as compared with when we used a litter box. It seems we were cleaning the litter box almost continuously. Our cats want a clean
box -- they have always insisted on it, and no less than 7 minutes after a cat uses the Litter Robot their "litter box" is clean again. They sometimes race each other to get to the Robot to be the first to use it.
The only problem we had was at the very beginning. The Vans were a little scared to crawl into the robot to do their business, but the ex-feral went right to it, as it was so nice and clean. When the two Vans were crossing all 4 legs we used a hint from another user. We placed their old litter box next to the Robot, they promptly used it, giving sighs of relief, but then we refrained from scooping it. We held our noses for 2 days, the Vans decided they could no longer stand it, and they have used the Robot happily ever since. We held a ceremony as the old litter box then went into the dust bin -- forever.
Should you be afraid you might have this problem, read the manufacturer's generous policy on returns -- all you have to do is return it with either 30 or 60 days -- can't remember -- getting old.
