post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hi all not sure where to put this so I thought I would start here. Does anyone have a a littermaid litterbox or something similiar? Do they work? Do you like them? I am considering investing in one of these if trying to toliet train proves futile!!

Thanks for any input!

My friend has it and they really like it. It has to be used with a certian kind of litter because most litters are too heavy for it. It works pretty well for them.

it works fairly well sometimes if theres not enough litter when they pee it sticks to the bottom but it comes with a scraper also if you put too much litter in it it wont stop it will go back and forth this happend to me once i though gee great its broken but we figured it out its nice you dont have to scoop everyday

i use a broken toothbrush to get between the tines. i use tidy cats small spaces, but have also used WBCL & Arm & Hammer & all of these work fine, technically. i just prefer the small spaces. i have 2 - love them both. wal-mart here had them for just under $90 the other day...

I'll move this to Care & Grooming for you.

I have 5 littermates. I love them. I also have the same problems talked about in the earlier post. Too much litter or not enough litter. I won't use anything else. In the last 6 years I've only had one go bad and no longer work.

I think after Christmas I will really consider investing in one. What kind of litter do you use with yours?

I like Arm & Hammer multi cat. It was the best money I ever spent and back than it was $190.

I bought one on ebay and its great EXCEPT after three days my new kitten discovered that sound it made and refused to use it. (Instead she used a green silk chair that I love to sit in) So I keep it turned off and manually make it run through a cycle a few times a day. I will do this for a while until she feels absolutely comfortable with it. It's a wonderful product and someday soon I expect to be able to use it the way it's meant to be used.

I had to do that too when I brought Smokey home. He was 12 weeks at the time, and I would have to say, I only did for about 1 - 1 1/2 months. He has no problems with it now.

Sorry, I had bad experience with it.

Don't know what the deal was, maybe the litter I used wasn't good enough. I did buy the super clumping one as it said on a box. Well the first couple of days I've had it it was ok, after a while it would get stuck in the middle, smear poop all over, was messy and a real pain to clean up. To me, I figured with all the work I had to do to clean it and make sure it works, wasn't worth the extra money investment. So, I took it back.

What I am really excited about is the litter-robot. It's a bit more expansive, $300 + but it's kinda neat. Check it out at www.litter-robot.com

Anyone had experience with that?

I dont think Abi would go into that little hole all that readily. unless she was chasing a bundle of ribbons held by me.

I'm getting a Littermaid for Christmas from my mother in law. I'm soooo excited!!! I think I'll try the Worlds Best Cat Litter and go from there. Does it clump well?

I also had one and didn't like it. I think it was because the box was too small for my cat. The urine would get stuck in the groove where the wheels turn and I couldn't get the thing apart to clean it like it needed. We ended up tossing it in the dumpster and going back to scooping twice a day.

The only positive thing I have to say about it is that it's great for people who have cats that don't cover!

WBCL clumps well... i didn't think it was too great at odor control, but that's me. the cats didnt care for it, either - probably a texture thing. they'd never had anything but clumping clay, & WBCL is quite a bit softer underfoot.
