Owning cats really does bring a lot of joy into the home and a person’s life. They are wonderful furry little friends that are full of love and fun. At the same time they do bring some responsibilities like having to keep their litter box clean. That chore may now be an easy one with the LitterMaid LM680C Automatic Self-Cleaning Litter box.
The LitterMaid LM680C Automatic Self-Cleaning Litter box is exactly what you would expect from the long self –descriptive title that it is advertised under. It is a litter box that cleans itself after the cats have done their business.
The claim by LitterMaid LM680C Automatic Self-Cleaning Litter box. is that the machine will reduce the need to clean the litter box every day and will encourage the felines in the home to use the litter box as it will be clean at all times.
Much of the hype stems from the recognized fact that cats will not use the litter box if it is unclean as they like to do their business in what they perceive as a new area every time and will not go in the same place if there is still waste present.
The cost of the LitterMaid LM680C Automatic Self-Cleaning Litter box. is a very reasonable $89.96 . Not a bad price for a machine that will do a chore for you that is quite repulsive and most people hate to do.
The commitment required for the LitterMaid LM680C Automatic Self-Cleaning Litter box. is minimal. Other than cleaning out the collection bin where the waste is accumulated and changing the filter at the intervals recommended there is really no other commitment required. Of course, you will need to change the litter at regular intervals as well as the machine will not perform that chore for you as well!
The LitterMaid LM680C Self-Cleaning Litter box is a great idea. After all who really likes to clean the cat litter box? Nobody does. But it is a chore that needs to be done at regular intervals otherwise the cat will do his business somewhere else in the house as cats will not go in an area that is unclean. The box simply uses a motor driven rake to scrape clean the area of the litter box where the cats go and pulls the waste into a collection area where it will sit until the area is cleaned. The title of self -cleaning is a bit of a misnomer, the box doesn’t really clean itself, it just pushes the problem off for a little bit which is perfectly fine but it still needs to be cleaned out at proper intervals. The LitterMaid LM680C Automatic Self-Cleaning Litter box. is well made and works pretty well for what it does. It has a carpeted area that the cat uses to enter the box and the area where the actual litter is held is not very big. The LM680C is advertised for use by smaller cats and not really designed for multiple cats. There is a larger version but it seems to be out of stock everywhere meaning it is really popular or not worth the time of the company to make more.
