Best Automatic Kitty Litter Box Overall
Self-cleans for weeks at a time, hood gives your pet privacy as they use the bathroom, automatic rake can be set on an adjustable timer, cat-safe, uses crystal litter instead of clay, built-in health counter, and runs fairly quietly.
Crystal litter isn't as good at odor control, and there's no on/off switch.
Operation: This kitty litter box has a built-in raking system that runs on an automatic timer. You have 3 different timing options that will trigger the box to rake the litter and eliminate clumps and poop. It doesn't have a built-in on/off switch, but it will automatically turn off if your cat enters the kitty litter box mid-rake. It's cat-safe and user-friendly!
The plastic hood gives your cat privacy, and the enclosure will make them feel safe—encouraging them to use the litter box instead of spraying around your house. It will also prevent them from tracking litter around the house.
Features: One of the great things about this automatic kitty litter box is that it has a built-in counter to monitor how many times they use the bathroom. Frequent urination can be a sign of health problems, so the counter will help you keep an eye on your pet's health.
The box does use crystal litter, which isn't as good at absorbing cat odors. You may have to experiment with different types of litter to find the one that blocks the smells as effectively as possible. But thanks to the self-cleaning (raking) design, you'll only have to empty the closed waste compartment every few weeks.
Price: At $160, this is one of the better-priced automatic kitty litter boxes on our list. It's not as "high tech" as our top-rated one, but it does a good job of keeping your home clean and reducing messes. A good alternative at a much lower cost.
