My Cat’s Bathroom Is Nicer Than Mine. I’m Fine With It

My Cat’s Bathroom Is Nicer Than Mine. I’m Fine With It

MERCEDES VIERA

The worst part of being a cat person is one thing: the dreaded litter box. Everything from scooping a freshly deposited turd to the nosehair-curling smell that literally never goes away, you wish you could simply swear off felines forever. However, there’s no need to dash your dreams of becoming a cat lady with a picturesque ramshackle mansion filled with mewling friends, because I’ve found the ultimate solution for the pet owner’s hands-down worst chore. Clocking at only a third of your monthly rent, the Litter-Robot 3 Connect by Whisker is truly worth it. With such a many-digit price tag, I thought I would rather keep scooping litter for the rest of my life than spend that much money on my cat, but after using this not-so-lean cleaning machine for about a month, I realized I was oh-so-very mistaken. And I’m not the only one who feels the love for this automated, WiFi-enabled, self-cleaning litter box that has a 4.4 out of 5 rating and 1,000+ fanatic reviews from unhinged totally stable cat owners across the internet. Read on to understand why this the best $549 that a cat mom will ever spend.

So, how exactly does this magic work? Litter-Robot’s proprietary technology separates the clumps from the clean litter, and then deposits it into the waste drawer and disposable bag below. While other automatic litter boxes need specific crystal litter, use rakes that get dirty real fast, create clean litter waste, and generally have mixed reviews, the Litter-Robot can be used with any clumping litter you already use, preserves your clean litter (helps to reduce usage by up to 50%, according to the website) and the cleaning cycle gets activated not even five minutes after your cat finishes their business.

This spaceship-looking litter box is huge. I don’t think pictures do it justice. It’s safe to say that our bathroom now belong to our cat, as this giant little thing with its staircase attachment takes up half of the real estate. (To be fair, our bathroom is really small.) However, don’t let the box’s behemoth appearance fool you — it’s surprisingly easy to set up and connects easily to the app. Oh yeah, it has an app; where you can activate the cleaning cycle, check activity, alert you when it’s time to replace the bag, and more. But if you’re a lower-fi type, worry not — the cycle will activate automatically as soon as your cat hops off after doing their business, and you can click the button manually if you see it missed a spot. As a longtime cat owner well-versed in the necessary evil of litter, I was surprised at how much the device reduced both odors and post-poop messes. The stair and fence attachments make it so if there are a few random litter granules scattered after my cat finishes his business, it’s contained to the mini staircase.
Cat reaction to Litter Robot
I was nervous when I first got the Litter-Robot — my cat (Flash) is reaaaaally picky, difficult, and set in his ways. (He says “Hi” back, by the way.) He’s never used an automatic toilet before, and I didn’t know how he was going to react or if he was even going to use it at all. At first, he was definitely freaked — the litter box makes noises as it moves and there’s a blue light inside, much like a tiny little spaceship. But he surprised us all and got used to it after a few days. Now, he only casually glances at it while it does the little cleaning routine just to make sure it’s doing its thing.

Would you pay this for a liter box?
