Cats sitting on litter box cleaning device



Few chores are more despised than cleaning the litter box. Leave the dirty work to technology with these self-cleaning boxes. Here are five that your cat (and you) will love.

PetSafe Scoop-Free Ultra Self-Cleaning Litter Box

PetSafe’s self-cleaning litter box is a minimal-frills choice that does the job well enough. It uses safety sensors to self-scoop between your cat’s bathroom trips. Disposable trays with plastic lining and ultra-absorbent litter crystals help keep messes to a minimum. This $169.95 litter box even tracks how many times your cat uses it.

CatGenie 120

This entry gets bonus points for its resemblance to a human toilet. The $289 CatGenie 120 uses a high-tech cleaning process that self-scoops solids and drains liquids via non-absorbent, washable granules. It cleans the granules and bowl with water and cleaning solutions before flushing all that waste and water away via a toilet or laundry drain line. And, because that’s not enough, the CatGenie 120 hot-air dries itself.

Litter-Robot 3 Connect

If money is no object, or you just really hate cleaning litter boxes and really love technology, consider dropping $499 (!!!) on the Litter-Robot 3 Connect. And, really, why should smart home technology be reserved strictly for … homes? This WiFi-enabled litter box allows you to monitor the waste drawer level, receive notifications, troubleshoot from afar, and access your cat's key health stats – all from an app.


Another pricey option ($399.99), the ChillX is a futuristic-looking litter box that may or may not double as a space pod. Seriously, though, this thing is fancy. It cleans up after your cat five minutes after every bathroom trip – and that’s on top of four automatic cleanings at 3 AM/PM and 9 AM/PM every day. Oh, and in case you care to track such things, it logs the stats on your cat’s every litter trip – everything from the time spent in the box to the weight of your cat’s bowel movement.

Petmate Arm & Hammer Sifting Litter Pan

Don’t need to control your cat’s litter box via an app? Don’t want to fork out hundreds of dollars on a litter box? Then here’s an economical option for you – the Petmate Arm & Hammer Sifting Litter Pan. It’s not fully self-cleaning, but it features a sifting pan that acts as a sieve, allowing for easy scoop-free litter disposal. Best of all, it’s less than $20.
