The LitterMaid team has developed a self-cleaning litter box that takes the chore out of litter cleaning and provides you and your cat with a constantly clean, odorless environment. The LitterMaid Self-Cleaning Litter Box automatically scoops the litter and empties the waste into a sealed, disposable receptacle. How it works is easy. Once the cat leaves the unit, sensors are triggered, turning on the timer for the cleaning cycle. The unit will not start a cleaning cycle while the cat is in the box. After 10 minutes the cleaning cycle starts. If the cat re-enters and leaves the litter box before the initial 10 minutes have elapsed, the timer will automatically reset and delay the beginning of the cleaning cycle for an additional 10 minutes. Not only will your cat love the LitterMaid Self-Cleaning Litter Box, but you also will love how easy it is to keep your house smelling fresh and clean.
