EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

This product automatically cleans up after your cat and alerts you when they use it, eliminating the need to always check their litter box.

Let's start with how it works. Plug the box into a power outlet, load the tray with litter, then slide and secure the tray underneath the frame. You will need to use PetSafe's special crystal litter with odor control, and there is one bag included. Motion sensors on the box can detect when your cat has used it and automatically activate the rake to push waste into a hidden compartment in the tray. The health counter screen updates each time the rake completes a cycle, so you know how frequently your cat is going to the bathroom. This is a scoop-free system, so all you need to do to dispose of waste is remove the tray from the box, discard the whole thing, then replace it with a new tray.

Once it's set up, you can download the PetSafe app on your phone and pair the box to your app. You will get alerts straight to your phone each time your pet goes to the bathroom or when you need to change the tray. You'll be able to keep tabs on your kitty's health by seeing if there has been irregular activity. You can even create separate profiles for multiple pets, although the box cannot actually tell you which specific pet has used it.

Why Is It Useful?

You'll spend less time cleaning and checking the litter box, plus you can make sure your cat is healthy by tracking their litter box activity.

In our household, this is super useful because our dog Piper tries to eat what the cats leave behind in the litter box, which is pretty gross. Because this cleans up right away, we don't have to worry about that.

Who It’s For

Any cat owner who would prefer an easier, quicker, and all-around less gross way to clean up after their cat.

What To Be Aware Of

How frequently you'll need to replace the tray depends on how many cats are using it. For just one cat, PetSafe recommends every 20-30 days. For us with Harley and Lola, it would be every 10-15 days. And with three or more cats, it's every 7-10 days. You will need to purchase replacement trays and litter from PetSafe, and the costs can add up.
