This smart self-scooping litter box makes cleaning up after your cats easy. Thanks to a motion-activated sensor, the box rake combs the litter to pick up waste after each use. Extra carbon filters and waste bags are included with purchase. ...more
I have had other brand name self-scooping litter boxes in the past, and they tend to leave waste behind after scooping. This litter box scoops well, which I suspect is due to the metal scooper mechanism (other companies use plastic). The only problem I have had so far is the noise of the motor when scooping. It is louder than other scooping litter boxes I have owned. The true test will be if the motor lasts. I have had it in operation for a month, and it's been consistent. I am hoping it outlasts other department store bands.
It works well and is a good size, but the first time my cat heard the noise, she refused to go near it anymore, which created a sudden problem of peeing on the rug. This took weeks to cure, but nothing I can do will make her use this box. For the price, I would not suggest that another pet owner take this risk.

We've had this litter box for about 6 months now and looking to replace it since we are not happy with it. We bought it based on a 5-star review but after months of using it; we'd give it a 2-star on performance. Here are what we don't like about this litter box:
1) It does not scoop up the poops reliably, it misses about half of the time; sometime, somehow, the poops even ended up on the edge of the litter box!
2) It is cumbersome to clean.
3) It does not have a cover (you can't even buy one for it) so odor is not contained
4) It waits 15 minutes between detection of a cat in the litter to scooping; that is way too long for the urine/poop to be sitting in the box smelling up the entire laundry room. Plus we have dogs that are very curious and want to get in the litter box and this is a big issue. It wish this was a programmanble feature.
5) The scooping motor is quite loud.
After months of using the litter; we find ourself doing more work from manually scooping half of the time, still have to keep an eye on the dogs and more effort to clean the litter; we've decided we're going to replace it.

I had this product for less than a year and it broke. At first it was fantastic because I didnt have to do the scooping, but with 2 cats it was hard for the motor to keep up I think. 2 grown large cats seemed to be too much waste in the litter for the motor to be able to #1scoop out of the pan and #2 lift into the back for disposal. The thing that moves back and forth got stuck constantly like it was off track slightly or something. I did very much like not having to scoop myself but the small container meant every other day changing the bag with 2 cats and the constant problems with the grate not scooping right or getting stuck was a problem. I would not reccomend this for anyone with multiple cats. I just had to buy a new one dif kind and it works differently by the grate coming forward and pushing the poo out on the movement forward instead of like this one which comes forward, scoops it up and carries it back to dump it...I think this new box I got will work better not putting as much stress on the mechanism. If you have one cat that is not a "super pooper" then this will work good for you and the price is great, multiple cats or a heavy user, maybe look around.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality was fair, it was wonderful at first but didnt last
Love this litter box!! Except for a few small poo bits, this keeps the box clean & I only smell it just before emptying it. I simply use the manual scoop once in a while, as needed.
I did have some trouble assembling it, but after several tries, got it put together.
It is a bit noisy, but not as noisy as my grumbling from when I had to do the scooping.
My cat is a mad scratcher & i have to sweep from one corner daily. Not a problem.
Love the little bags!
