Three Years. Two Cats.
We had our Litter Robot for well over three years and didn’t really take good care of it, and neither did our two cats.
Sure we cleaned it, but not once a month like US based manufacturer Automated Pets recommends. More like every 3-6 months…..
We didn’t use the best cat litter for it, even though our walnut cat litter sure did look nice in the orb.
Our First Litter Robot
Who likes to scoop the cat box? No one. Having a cat box that automatically scoops for you seems like a cat owners dream.
We got our first Litter Robot over 3 years ago in the Summer of 2017. We absolutely loved it, and it was our first automated cat box so naturally it blew our mind.
No More Scooping
Not having to scoop was a big deal. We had a young, busy family and would often forget to scoop on a regular basis until a few days passed and we’d come home to a home filled with ammonia smell.
Some times I felt like A Child Called It…..
Not Cleaning Our Litter Robot
The Litter Robot worked so well that we began to neglect it, forgetting about cleaning it for months. We did this for 3 years, replacing the globe (under warranty) once.
We didn’t use or try the recommended cat litter, and every type we used would get clumps of urine soaked litter stuck to the rubber on the inner globe. Our two cats used and abused the Open Air for dozens of months.
Wally, our 15 year old cat clawed the rubber near the entrance of the litter box viciously. It held up functionally, but you could see the scratching marks – it was probably good for him.
Surprisingly, we still have the same carbon filter that came with our once new Litter Robot.
Litter Robot vs Other Cat Boxes
We’ve since tried other automated cat boxes (like these on Amazon), but have yet to find a scoop-less cat box that works as well.
The LiterMaid was almost a joke – though we got the small one by accident.
Prixie (our smallest cat and mascot of this site) seemed to prefer the openness of the Litter Maid and used it instead the Litter Robot steps or the downstairs sink.
Get your own Litter Robot and stop scooping forever. Less smell, more health for your cats.

We use the Litter Robot in our own home and love it. Our Open Air III has lasted over a year so far and easily paid for itself in litter use and time savings.
