I have this 'old' cat that won't use a dirty box. I have this younger cat that will use it no matter what. In the two days it took me to get this new box, my CAT pooped behind a chair...
I searched and searched for a PLASTIC rake litter box like my older two. I once got a metal rake one and it very nicely sliced the clumps... The difference in sound is amazing, so quiet. It actually 'scared' the cats the first time it ran, the cat was the last to use it, so she she snuck up on it to see what was making the sound, the American Bull dog followed, which caused the shepherd type dog to follow, which caused the 'kitten' (15 lbs) to go see what all the excited was! I think I'm on my third in 12-15 years. One Sunday I went to change the old one and it just stopped. So I panicked and order it Sunday night. It was here by Tuesday. I am not complaining at all. I also line the pan with a plastic bag, remove it and replace twice I week, I might need to do it three times a week, I think the clumps are larger either due to the hot weather, more kitty litter it holds or both cats insisting on using the same side... My original one, the cat (who is only about 7 lb) as a kitten used to ride the bar... I actually had more trouble with my dogs adapting to it. That bar just started moving all by itself, but it was short lived. It was in my living room with the new kitten, and slowly made it's way into the bathroom.
I loved the old one, this one is just the same but two-toned in color instead of a tannish, so it's prettier, not that that really matters, but it is definitely quieter which I really like. I did place it inside of a large unused dog cage to protect it from the dogs and fixed the door so it was partially open. I so hate the idea of having to check a cat box several times a day and clean it as often that this is definitely for me.
I do a once a week clean where I scrap the bottom for any residual missed mess, but I haven't found any. I am just so happy that I found it, it works just like the old one and I got it so quickly.
