Just ordered a Litter Robot

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I had heard so many good things about it that I decided that it would be the best way to go.

To recap my situation for those who don't remember it, Father bought a house and turned it into a duplex; I lived upstairs and he lived down. The idea was that when he died or moved permanently into a nursing/rest home, I would be able to rent out the lower half for a little extra income.

While Father was alive, Zane--who was really his cat; I referred to him as GSC, for Glen's S____ Cat (depending on my mood/his behavior S could mean sweet, spoiled, silly, special, or stupid.)--had his litter box in the basement. However, if I am going to rent out the lower floor I can't have him running up and down to the basement all the time; he'll have to be confined to my apartment. There really isn't any isolated part of the apartment where I could put a traditional litter box. (The bathroom is very narrow; there really is no place for one there.) Hence, I put out a call on the board for recommendations, and the Litter Robot got the most positive reviews.

The only problem I anticipate is that Zane is a big kitty--16 lbs.--and is at the upper end of the LR's capacity, but we'll see.

I'll keep you all posted about what develops with Zane the Insane, Cat of Small Brain.

Yay! Good for you! I want one so bad but they are very $$pricy$$! Let me know if it is worth the money!

Back in the days when we had money, we bought one. It was so fabulous, we bought a second. We do have regular litter boxes out because we have six cats - but they survive two 15 pound cats, two 11 pound cats, and two 7 - 8 pound cats.

I have 2 litter robots and 1 regular litter box, and they're doing more than fine with those now.

Granted i haven't had them for that long, but like LDG said, I think anyone will testify to its longevity.

My 16 year old fattie has been using ours for a year. No problem.

Congratulations.

Any hints as how to make the transition?

Zane's Pal,

I just put ours out and the cats, being naturally curious, marched right in and started using it. At the time I had a 15 year old and even she took to it with no problem. When I brought my latest kitten home in October, I had the Robot downstairs and a regular pan upstairs. He used both for a few days but was soon running down to use the Robot exclusively, so I took away the regular pan and have never looked back.

I also have a custom made wooden cabinet to keep mine in, and that's been no problem as well, altho I did open the lid for a few days while the kitten was transitioning.
