Robert H. gets a useful but complex no-prize for bringing us the latest in robotic litter boxes. Of course, for this to work in our house we'd actually have to get them to start using litterboxes. Consistently, I mean.
Proposed Fark headline: "New litter box provides hands-free cleaning, searches for Sarah Conner"
eMail this entry!
Neat idea, but $300?!? I'm not thinking so. Especially since one of ours would find a way to break it.
I remember a blog post somewhere that I can't find now, about another down side to self-cleaning litterboxes... the fact that some cats have a need to mark their litterbox, resulting in them getting into a turf war with the autocleaner. "I never saw a cat drink so much," was the most memorable line.
I remember Amber talking about one she had. Apparently, it had gotten stuck and kept flipping the turds up into the air. This amused the hell out of Skippy, who sat next to the box and played with them as the shot up.
Never said our cats were the brightest bulbs on the Christmas tree...
It's called the Littermaid and Amber and I both had them at the same time and they both did the same thing. Sling shit like it was a catapult.
I would need two and at $300 each I guess I will have to keep scooping.
