If you have a cat, I highly advise that you get the ScoopFree Litterbox. It actually works, which is amazing. You have to buy these stupid disposable cartridges for it, but you can buy a permanent one off of E-bay by searching for "Forever Litter Tray." This litterbox has changed my life, and the way my cats poop.

Peeber may be in need of one of these, but since he lives with Melissa and not me, I'll let that be her decision...

I haven't had to even look at the litter box for months now. Incredible.

From Pork Tornado, the funniest Blogger in the World:

Dear Littermaid,

I bought the Elite Super Mega Deluxe Bombsquad model a couple of months ago in an effort to further divorce myself form any of the responsibility that comes with owning a pet, and I am proud to say that it worked one time. I’m not telling you how to run your R&D department, but common sense and a smidge of experience tells me that it would be a good idea to test a product before selling it - just to make sure it actually works like it says it will.

The second time it attempted to operate, the crap rake thing did not return to its starting point, so the next few uses were punctuated by the rake going loudly and uselessly 3 inches above the nearest clump of cat shit. I am a pretty handy guy, so I risked voiding the warranty to modify it. I used all kinds of plastic and wire to try and guide the rake into its proper place. As a result of my modifyery, an entirely new problem manifested itself. The rake would seize up about halfway through the cleaning cycle and build potential energy until it would finally spring free and launch a volley of turds across the room like a 17th century broadside from the Cacafuego.

If anything can be considered more annoying than manually cleaning a $100 automatic litter box, it would have to be the discovery of cat shit in your closet, under your bed, and in one case snuggled up on my pillow next to my face. Turds are everywhere you look; it’s like an Easter egg hunt for kids who don’t finish their vegetables.

I finally remedied the situation with a heel kick to the rake mechanism, destroying it completely. I took the rake out to the parking lot and ran over it several times; insulting your organization in ways I cannot repeat. I soon returned to the remains of the litter box and used a 110v drill and a 5/8” speed bore to gut the LCD readout and all associated electronics. I have ordered a Litter Robot ™ as its replacement because it is reported to actually work and it has the word “robot” right in the name.
