Automatic Self-Cleaning Litter Boxes v. Conventional Litter Boxes

Est. read time: 3 min.

Though we’re sure that you can imagine what some of the key differences are between conventional litter boxes and automatic, self-cleaning litter boxes, today we’re here to discuss them in plain English. So, without further introduction, here are the key distinctions between the standard and the more technologically inclined.

Ease Of Use

In comparing the ease of use between a conventional litter box and an automatic self-cleaning litter box, the difference is night and day. When you think about the amount of time you spend scooping, cleaning and replenishing the litter in your conventional litter box, those minutes are going to add into hours and into days, over a long enough timeframe. Consider a reality where you simply go on with your day-to-day life without even considering the fact that there is a litter box in your home, expect for the once every day or two that you remove the bag in the waste drawer and replace it with a new one. Now, realize that this reality exists, today, and that it is no fantasy. You can take all of that time that you would have been bent uncomfortably over a smelly litter box and spend it doing something you love! There are few opportunities in life to regain free time like this, so don’t squander this one.

Reduction Of Odor

As we’ve mentioned before, you’ll surely find that an automatic self-cleaning litter box will prove considerably less smelly than your conventional litter box, which is likely on the smellier (if not smelliest) end of the spectrum. The Litter Robot, for instance, uses a highly effective design that sifts your cat’s waste into a sealed reservoir that keeps the smell from reaching you and your family in your home. Litter Robot users across the board find that their automatic self-cleaning litter box is so good at reducing the odor that they sometimes forget that there is even a litter box in their home. It may sound far-fetched, but these are real advantages to incorporating sophisticated technology and engineering into household items that have remained unimproved for too long.

Saving Of Funds

Though you may be under the impression that a conventional litter box is the less expensive route, you’d be amazed when you actually crunch the numbers. Though the plastic box is certainly cheaper, even with the plastic scooper, too, the real costs come from the staggering amount of litter that you’re going to go through with a conventional box. Alternatively, the initial investment of an automatic self-cleaning litter box may look big at first glance, but you’ll find that it often pays for itself in reduced litter use over the course of the first 24 months. The efficiency of the waste separation on a device like the Litter-Robot is unrivaled, and so you’re sure to find that it will amount to the greatest savings over the long haul. It is truly the technological age, but that doesn’t just mean that you’re phone and car are the only things in your life that get a technological update. Your litter box deserves one, too!
