I have had the Litter-Robot for over 2 years now, and it is still working great. In the past I had used other automated litter box systems and they worked well for about 1 year then started having issues. My cat is a complete diva and if his litter box isn’t kept 100% clean he will find someplace else to go, so an automated system is a must. This system keeps the smells down far better than others I have used. I’ve gone 2 weeks without cleaning and people with sensitive noses haven’t picked up a cat pee odor. Very easy to change the liner in the waste receptacle bin, far easier and cheaper than other automated systems that have special receptacles you constantly need to buy and still are prone to making messes. I’ve also noticed I use far less litter with this unit than other automated systems. This is an expensive unit and it is quite large, but well worth the purchase.
I purchased my Litter-Robot in late 2010. Other litter boxes were messy and high maintenance and not large enough for my male, 17 lb, ragdoll cat. I had read bad reviews on some of the other comparable, high end boxes while the ones on litter robot were great. Well it’s mid 2014 and I love the Litter-Robot bubble model, beige. The investment was well worth it. My cat took to it instantly and is even possessive of it. I only have to clean once every week and a half. I save a ton on litter. I also love how the site offers replacement parts for everything. Thank LR team.

Since 2009, my Litter-Robot has kept my home clean and fresh-smelling. It has provided a private space for Biskit to conduct “business”. Four days ago, I rescued Noodle from a local shelter. Two days ago, he met Biskit by surprise and promptly hopped into the Litter-Robot for refuge. When the coast was clear, he stepped out, turned around, and climbed back in to conduct a little “business” of his own. He loves it, she loves it, and mostly, I love it. How simple can it be to open a drawer, pull out a bag, put a new one in, close the drawer, and walk away? Thank you Litter-Robot, from the 3 of us!
At first we thought we might have to return our unit as nothing suggested could get either cat to use it.
We finally took the globe of the base and sat it against the wall then took a rolled up towel and wedged it around the bottom to stabilize the globe. Then after placing some old litter in the globe mixed with the new, we turned the Litter Maid off.
Both cats started using it after 3-4 days, then we just placed it back on the base to run a cleaning cycle, after a few days we removed the old litter box, then after a week of having it on the floor we placed it and left it on the base.
Both cats are now using it and good riddance to the Litter Maid.

My daughter gave us the Littler-Robot as a gift. She said she was so impress with her first one she had to have a second one and felt it would solve my problems. We had 4 cats. I have 4 litter boxes. Two of the cats would not use any of the litter boxes. I would watch one of them push it away and proceed to pee on the floor. I had to pull all my beautiful wool rugs up and put them in storage. I was cleaning our carpets almost on a daily basis and getting really frustrated with the cats in general. I was at my wits end. When the Litter-Robot arrived I thought “Geez waste of money, space as this will never work. Nothing else seemed to”. Well….. Our male cat love to set it off. He would sit and watch it for hours at a time. Over a course of two months, one cat at a time began to use it. The one that refused to use any litter box has been caught using it. I believe what prompted her was my husband coated the doorway and the inside with Feline Facial Pheromones. We also left the jar next to the Litter-Robot. We are so thrilled to find something that works! I highly recommend the Litter-Robot to any cat owner.

We have used Litter-Robots for years, since they first came to market. We still own the original model. Yes, it still works and yes, all our cats use them. We never have to scoop litter and our cats never have to dig in litter with waste in it. I think always having “purrfectly” clean litter keeps them healthier and happier. The design has continued to improve and we have now purchased a total of seven over the years. They all continue to work perfectly. Three of ours are designed with windows and admittedly seem to get the most use. I think our cats enjoy having a little “light on the subject” when they “go”!
When we purchased our first one we had tried other self scooping boxes all of which had flaws. The other guys self cleaning boxes left too much litter behind, allowed more odor, and were hard to keep clean. We couldn’t believe how well the Litter-Robot worked! We purchased a second within a year. Now with all the improvements made over the years it is absolutely the ONLY self cleaning box we would ever recommend!
I have owned my machine for many years. I recently sent two machines to my daughter; she has lots of cats. At one time, I had six cats and half of them used the machine; the others insisted on regular boxes. I currently have two cats (MUCH EASIER) and neither of them is impressed with the machine. I notice rarely they DO use it; I hear the machine cleaning itself. I would dearly love to convert them full time to the robot. Any suggestions?
Well what can I say, I bought the Litter-Robot knowing my days of everyday litter box cleaning we’re over! The only trick is getting your kitty to agree with you. It can tricky. My best recommendation is insuring you let your litter figure it out on their own, don’t force the issue! Also, keeping your old litter box present helps then ease into it! Hope this helps! We ended having to leave the old litter box out for “comfort’s sake”!
I had bought a new Litter-Robot some years ago for my four 15-year-old indoor cats to use instead of their four separate and messy litter boxes. They were not about to use the Litter-Robot, no matter what I tried. Maybe they were just too old to adapt. But I had it set up and available to them until they all passed away, one by one, all at ages of 20 years old. I did not get any more cats, and placed the like-new Litter-Robot for sale on the internet to be shipped in its preserved original box. Someone bought it and I learned through email that their cats loved and used the unit. Also, after I had first bought the Litter-Robot, I told a coworker about it and she bought one for her two young cats. She said that they used it just fine. Although I personally couldn’t achieve success, I introduced two other “cat families” to the wonders of the Litter-Robot. Now my mother-in-law has young cats in her house and she could sure use a unit. She still uses the smelly old litter boxes that you can detect when you enter her house. It would be great if I could win a Litter-Robot for her!
I have owned Litter-Robots for the last 8+ years and I will never go back to a conventional pan litter box. At one point, I had 4 cats sharing one Litter-Robot without any issues at all. My original unit died after about 7 years, and my husband and I purchased a new unit. I’ve also recommended the Litter-Robot to co-workers and my parents (both bought them and love them). My husband had never been a pet parent before we began dating, so he’s never experienced life without the Litter-Robot. One day the topic came up and he said he didn’t think he would be happy having to “scoop the poop” and that the Litter-Robot makes cat box cleaning and care so easy.
