These tried-and-true methods will help your cat use Litter-Robot in no time.
Most cats successfully acclimate to Litter-Robot
Leave it turned off
Leave Litter-Robot turned off to avoid possibly startling your cat while they’re adjusting to it as their new litter box. Once you notice that your cat has used Litter-Robot, turn it on for a clean cycle. Encourage your cats to be present, so they can observe the motion and become familiar with the sound of Litter-Robot while you’re there to reassure them.
Stop scooping the old box
Place Litter-Robot near or next to the old litter box, but don’t throw the old litter box away yet. Add a scoop of the old litter to the new litter in Litter-Robot to provide a familiar scent for your cat. Gradually make the old litter box less desirable by letting waste accumulate. Cats prefer a clean place to go, so this should motivate your cat to try Litter-Robot.
Create positive associations
If your cats show no interest, entice them to approach Litter-Robot by using some catnip or treats. Place treats on the step or around Litter-Robot so your cat associates rewards with the new litter box. Once your cat has used Litter-Robot, be sure to reward them with treats, play sessions, and cuddles.
Make it attractive
Use a “cat attract” product, such as a litter additive designed to entice cats. Ensure Litter-Robot is accessible, not blocked or positioned somewhere your cat might feel cornered. Finally, make the unit itself more appealing: Because cats are curious and love to go into boxes, try putting a box over Litter-Robot with a hole cut out for the entry and the drawer.
How long will it take for my cat to use Litter-Robot?
Many cats use Litter-Robot within several days to a week of setting it up. In fact, many customers say their cats use Litter-Robot the very first day! The trick is to ease your cat into transitioning to Litter-Robot. Some kitties are a little more stubborn, and it may take several weeks or more before they use Litter-Robot.
