Self-Cleaning Litter Box
LitterMaid is a white-and-blue, cuboid-shaped litter box. It features a large basin with an automated rake, a covered waste receptacle compartment, and a ramp for minimized tracking and easier entry. Its sides are tall enough to suit the needs of cats that spray high when they go.
- 28 inches in length;
- 17.7 inches in width;
- 9.8 inches in height;
- 590 cubic inches in usable cat space (17.5 inches x 13.5 inches x 2.5 inches).
LitterMaid comes fully assembled and you only need to insert the waste receptacle into the designated compartment and attach the paw cleaning ramp, which takes no more than 2 minutes.
LitterMaid is an automatic litter box and does not require manual scooping.
LitterMaid is equipped with a powerful motor that produces noise during the cleaning cycle. Noise levels are not unusually high, but if your cat is particularly sensitive to noise, it is best to start the cleaning cycles manually when your cat is not in the room.
LitterMaid is made of plastic that does not break easily but can get damaged with prolonged use. The device can last anywhere between 1 and 5+ years, depending on use.
LitterMaid is known for great odor control. It removes waste within 10-12 minutes and stores it in receptacles with sealable lids and carbon filters that prevent the odors from escaping the box.
LitterMaid is perfect for healthy, agile, extroverted cats that are not overly sensitive to noise. It is not suitable for kittens under the age of 6 months due to the use of clumping litter. Older cats and handicapped kitties may have a hard time exiting the litter box. Cats that are diabetics produce large urine clumps that the rake cannot remove efficiently.
Suitable For Multiple Cats
LitterMaid can work with any high-quality hard-clumping litter. It does not work with non-clumping, crystal, and pearl-like litters. If you want to play it safe, you can opt for LitterMaid's own litter.
LitterMaid uses disposable waste receptacles and does not require the use of liners. However, if you want to save money on waste receptacles, you can line them with regular trash bags.
Cleaning & Maintenance
With LitterMaid, you only need to dispose of waste once a week by removing the waste receptacle or the liner. The top housing, the paw cleaning ramp, and the motion sensors should be cleaned weekly. The litter tray should be cleaned monthly, when you are replacing the litter.
Getting used to LitterMaid should take virtually no time if your cat has already used a self-cleaning litter box. If this is not the case, it is best to keep LitterMaid next to the old litter box, start the cycles manually in your cat's absence for the first 2-3 days, and stop cleaning the old litter box. You can use catnip and your cat's favorite toys and treats to make LitterMaid more appealing. When your cat starts using LitterMaid exclusively, you can start the cleaning cycles in his or her presence, providing support to facilitate the adjustment.
LitterMaid features no electronic parts that your cat can come in contact with, apart from the AC adapter and the cord, which are not necessary if you are using batteries. It is made of non-toxic, pet-safe materials. It has no sharp or protruding elements that could harm your cat. The automatic rake is equipped with a safety bar that stops the cleaning cycle if your cat enters the litter box.
LitterMaid is sold via Amazon, so it is covered by Amazon's 30-day money-back guarantee.
LitterMaid comes with a 1-year limited warranty that covers defects and malfunctions not caused by improper use and maintenance.
