Litter Robot Reviews:Why the Litter Robot is One of the Best Recent Innovations for Cats - When you hear the words "Litter Robot" you may immediately think of some sci-fi machine straight out of the Jetsons. Does an actual robot follow your cat around and collect its excrement? Actually, the litter robot is a very innovative electronic self-cleaning litter box that comes from the company Automated Pet Care Products. This company was founded in 1999, and the Litter Robot debuted in 2000. The Litter Robot automates the cleaning of the litter box to save the cat owner the hassle of constantly scooping the litter box. I know in my case, I kept forgetting to clean the litter box. Cats are clean creatures and get quite depressed when no one comes to keep their box tidy and clean. When I got my Litter Robot, I was thrilled to finally solve this problem. The machine is made from recycled plastic and is designed to be sturdy and to last. Currently, Automated Pet Care Products offers a 3-month money back guarantee on their products so there is really very little risk involved if your cat doesn't like it.

How does the Litter Robot Work? The Litter Robot is shaped like a globe and is fully covered. When the cat steps into the chamber, a sensor detects the cat has entered. The Litter Robot leaves about 7 minutes for the cat to "do his business" and leave. Then the Litter Robot starts a clean cycle that rotates the entire globe and separates the clumps from the clean litter. The waste product is deposited in a drawer at the bottom of the Litter Robot. Once the cycle is completed, the litter robot has a clean amount of litter ready for the next "drop off." The design itself is very simple. The Litter Robot should be plugged in to a nearby socket. The pet owner simply needs to empty the drawer every so often and also add new clumping litter inside the Litter Robot. You can view an animated video of how the Litter Robot works below:
