Think of this: cat owners pick up their cats' pee and poop from their litter boxes every day. How does a cat interpret this?
The belief that cat waste is valuable is not new to cats, but PetSafe has given cats even more reason to believe it, because the company has gone to the extreme, making sure that no cat pee or poop, not a pebble of it, is wasted.
The PetSafe product is the ScoopFree Ultra Self-Cleaning Cat Litter Box.
You, the human, see it like this:
Your cat sees it like this:
But no matter which one of you is looking at this cat litter box, one thing is for sure, the PetSafe ScoopFree Ultra Automatic Self-Cleaning Cat Litter Box is a more sanitary, more convenient way to manage your cat's waste.
This smart cat litter box may not connect to your smart phone, but it does do a lot.
First of all, you don't have to ever touch the litter or the waste. That's a nice thing, don't you think? The litter box unit plugs into the wall and, once you load the disposable litter tray and set up the timer for the rake, the PetSafe Self-Cleaner automatically does the rest.
I like the health counter, which tracks how many times your cat uses the box; this information may become useful to her vet if illness is suspected. And if your kitty happens to enter the box while its rake is moving, the rake will reset, which really does make this litter box pretty smart.
The automatic rake combs the litter towards the front of the litter box, storing it in the 'waste trap' which keeps it out of sight and out of smell too! At the bottom of the litter box is a plastic tray which insures that no waste, wet or dry, hits the floor.
Aside from the bells and whistles, the practical side of the PetSafe ScoopFree Ultra Automatic Self-Cleaning Cat Litter Box is the actually litter tray, one which contains very special cat litter, PetSafe's ScoopFree Premium Crystal Non Clumping Cat Litter. Its crystals absorb 5 times more liquid and odor (!) than clay based litters and the crystals don't stick to your cat when she exits the litter box. (How nice!)
The crystals come in perfectly-sized trays to slide right into your Self-Cleaning Litter Box. Each box should last about 3-4 weeks and when you are ready you just slide the box out, cover it with its own top, and dispose of it. Then just replace it with a fresh box.
You can order a 3-pack of ScoopFree Litter Tray Refills here.
The PetSafe ScoopFree Ultra Automatic Self-Cleaning Cat Litter Box comes in gray with a taupe top or gray with a purple top.
Now, there are variations to the ScoopFree Litter Boxes. The "Ultra," above, has a privacy lid with a front entrance. There is another version of the Ultra - the Top Entry Ultra!
And if your cat isn't especially private about his business, you might want to look at the PetSafe ScoopFree Original Self-Cleaning Cat Litter Box (below).
If your cat doesn't mind not having the privacy lid, the 'Original' operates just like the Ultra, plus you can save a few bucks with this version. You can purchase the Original with a purple litter trap or a taupe litter trap right here.
These inventions are great for those of us who prefer cleanliness over actually cleaning....
