I absolutely love this box! After years of using regular cat boxes this one is a dream. I’ve been using it a year now with no issues , no potty box smell whatsoever and changing the litter tray is super simple.
This is a terrible product. For the price, it is tacky & poorly made. It was too small for my cat & she ended up going on the sides & outside the box. The advertisement said litter would not need to be changed for a month. It began stinking in a week. When we changed it, we discovered the tray was cardboard & it cost an additional $66. That tray had a small space for waste. Also waste material stuck to the apparatus during cleaning cycle & needed constant attention. I can't think of anything po a itive to say about product except that I'm glad to have returned it. I am writing this (it's the 1st time I've ever done this) so that others will not have to go thru what I did.
I got this box a few weeks ago. A few days ago one of my kittens began acting strange and getting sick constantly. An x-ray at the vet showed he had been eating the crystal litter that is required for this box. He could have died. I will tell everyone and anyone who will listen to PLEASE DO NOT BUY THIS BOX/LITTER.
We've had our system a little over a year and a half and love it. The only issue we ever had was when our internet went down and Xfinity updated our modem to the latest version. It took several tries and several calls to Xfinity customer service to resolve the issue of the box and modem failing to work together. It was finally resolved, but during that time we had to physically inspect the box display to know when it was full instead of being able to use the app. One thing we did find out - the Scoop free folks will email you to let you know if your litter box has lost contact. The box will still work, but you definitely need internet service to access the system with your phone app. My favorite feature is their help system - once the display stopped showing the number of uses so I used the app to get service. They resolved the issue quickly and by the end of the day the display was once again working correctly. Also, even though the display had stopped temporarily we were still able to track usage through the app. While we were recently on vacation I was able to use the app to let my pet sitter know when it was time to change the box out. We've definitely been spoiled by this system, especially since we can easily track usage and determine when it's time to change the litter tray. Not having to scoop 2-3 times each day has been a game changer. We'll never go back to regular boxes again.
Overall I'm very pleased with this purchase. It requires almost no maintenance on a day-to-day basis, has limited odor, and was easy for our cat to assist to. My only complaint is that v the slats between the bars are large enough that small bits of poop don't always get scooped. I'd recommend getting the hood for it.
As a long-term owner, I wasn't sure I needed the App for the new box, but it has proven to be helpful. Sometimes she throws litter over the sensor, so I know to go clear it. Also, it's comforting to check her daily habits. I keep the box in the garage. Because it's automatic, you don't really know what's going on without the app.
We dedicated our linen closet to the cat, turning it into his place to do his business, away from the intruding nose of the dog. A large sized litterbox for or large sized cat fits well inside, with room for a pail and a stick vacuum. Yet that same space is a few inches too small in both direction for this contraption! A standard old-school linen closet is about 25"x18" -- this is 27.5"x19". So close. Sooo close... (Smaller footprint boxes have a rotating bladder that feels smooshy under his large paws -- he would never set foot on one. And they are small (2 cups of litter!!!) and start at twice the price. Ugh.
When this arrived, I took it out of the box and then put it right back in to return. For the hundreds spent, I didn’t think it would be so cheap. The place that holds the waste seemed too “open” to control odors and the fact that there really isn’t a steady pan on the bottom was odd as well. Granted, I never plugged it in or set it up so I really don’t know how well this works. It just seemed too cheap to keep. Giving 3 stars since the function is unknown and the cats didn’t actually use the product.
This litter box is not worth the price. After a couple months it started squeaking loudly everytime it would clean. It's so loud that it was waking us up at night so we had to put it up and buy a new litter box. Now I have a useless $200 hunk of junk sitting in my garage.
I love this scoop free cat box, makes life so much easier, my cats love it, does not have a smell that a regular cat box does and you don't have to clean it as often as you would a regular one,
