This article will help explain the different self cleaning litter boxes. Their is the automatic self cleaning litter box, which involves having the litter box near an outlet. Then their is the manual self cleaning litter box which is my favorite.

Lets talk about the type of litter you want to use in an automatic self cleaning litter box. You must use a high quality clumping litter in order for the litter box to work properly. Litter that does not clump will cause problems with the automatic system.

The automatic self cleaning litter box uses an electronic sensor which is activated once your cat leaves the box. Within 5 to 10 minutes after your cat exits the box the automatic rake will engage and rake the clumps of litter into a waste receptacle. Then the rake will automaticaly go back into position in the front of the box. You do need to replace the waste receptacles every other day, depending on how many cats you have in your home. I have three cats and i would have to replace the waste receptacle every morning.

Now the maintantience of owning a self cleaning litter box. So now you don' have to scoop the litter all the time but you do have to maintain the unit, which means cleaning the litter box, the area that holds the litter. Make sure you unpug the unit you do need to scoop out the old litter, wash the box area, dry the area, filll with clean litter. Plug the unit back into the outlet and its ready for your cats.

My favorite, the manual self cleaning litter box. This litter box does not require electricity so the litter box can be place anywhere in a room. Most of the manual self cleaning boxes are made of plain heavy duty plastic and are very simple to put together. This type of manual litter box also is an enclosed litter box.

You also need to use a high quality clumping litter for this type of litter box in order for it to work properly.

The manual self cleaning litter box is very simple to use. Once you have assembled the box, place the litter in the box and place the top on, latch the top on securely. Now once you cats have checked out the new litter box and given it a try you just roll the box to the right all the way over and then roll all the way back to the left and the soiled clumps of litter will be in the removable tray. Now that the litter box is back in position you pull the tray out and discard the litter in to the trash and replace the tray.

Now this type of litter box also needs to be maintained, needs to be washed out and the tray also needs to be washed also. I would wash this litter box out at least twice a month if you have just one cat you could wash it out once a month. Very simple to take apart, clean and put together

I hope this article does offer some help if you are in the market for a self cleaning litter box.
