As a longtime TiVo owner, I understand that it is my responsibility to spread the Good News of TiVo to the unannointed masses still condemned to either watch scheduled television programming as it is broadcast or to record it on a barbaric and antiquated VCR.
While people have come to expect this kind of evangelism from TiVo owners, they are often caught off-guard when they learn I have the same unyielding missionary spirit for my litter box.
The Litter Robot is an automatic self-cleaning litter box that completely revolutionizes the act of cat crap disposal.
The machine, which bears an odd resemblance to Kenny from South Park, consists of a rotating plastic globe with a built-in sifting mechanism. Here’s how it works:
- Fluffy climbs in through a hole in the front.
- Fluffy turns around and does his thing.
- Fluffy leaves.
- Seven minutues later, the globe rotates and the sifting mechanism drops any litter clumps into a bag that’s held in a drawer in the base of the unit.
All you have to do is change the bag regularly and add more litter. Every few months you’ll want to clean the rotating globe. No scooping.
Did I mention there’s no scooping? There’s no scooping.
I can already hear what you’re thinking:
“THREE-HUNDRED DOLLARS?!? ARE YOU OUT OF YOUR FREAKING MIND?!?”
A few things you might want to consider:
- The device uses considerably less litter than you’re likely to go through if you scoop. Probably about half as much, so you could end up saving money in the long run.
- You can go out of town and still know that fluffy has a clean place to do his business.
- You’re probably much less likely to contract Toxoplasmosis by changing a bag than by scooping. This is definitely something pregnant women should consider.
- The device has a 60 day money-back guarantee, so you’re not out three benjamins if Fluffy doesn’t dig it.
- This is not one of those $60 piece-of-crap automatic litter-boxes from Petco. This unit actually works.
But don’t take my word for it. Read the Amazon reviews from other owners who have also drank the Kool-Aid.
There’s no scooping.
