Is it worth the money?

So, I am looking at getting an automatic litter box cleaner, do you have one? Which one? Pros and cons of it? Is it worth it?

  • It is awesome if you have multiple cats, it will clean itself each time it is used, but you must clean out the drawer daily. I love it, and think it is well worth the money.

  • Older, what one do you have? There are like a million out there, we have two cats, and honestly I think we need it!

  • It depends on what type you get. Most of them you still have to clean the waste out everyday. You also can't you regular clumping litter. Plus you still need to empty it and clean it. Also you have to keep buying the waste receptacles. You still have the same smells as with regualr litter boxes.

  • I have the ScoopFree litter box. It's expensive, but it is worth it, imo. I have two cats, and I only have to change the litter every week and a half to two weeks. The entire bottom of this litter box is a disposable tray, so there is very little cleaning to do.  One of my cats was scared of it for the first month, so I had some problems with her not using it, but she is fine with it now.  I also have the service that delivers the litter trays to my house; the litter is a little cheaper that way.
