If you are a pet owner, then a litter box is a must-have. You don’t want your feline friend relieving himself just anywhere. Truth be told, you will be spoilt for choice since there are hooded litter boxes, disposable trays, traditional pans, and self-cleaning litter boxes on the market.

However, there are benefits that come with using self-cleaning litter boxes. If you are busy or you will be traveling, you don’t have to worry about scooping the mess. With the self-cleaning litter boxes, you are just required to set up at a convenient place for your feline and as soon as your cat relieves itself, the litter box automatically cleans itself.

Here are the three benefits.

Odor control

The self-cleaning cat litter boxes have odor control that leaves your home fresh. The litter boxes automatically clean after the cat depending on the timer. The waste is then sealed in the receptacles that have odor neutralizing abilities. Some litter boxes use carbon zeolite filters that absorb the strong smells associated with cat’s poop while others have crystals that absorb odor. You need to make sure to empty the waste trap or receptacles as recommended depending on the litter box.

This is unlike the traditional litter boxes in which the cat’s poop remains there until you scoop and get rid of it, exposing your home to the strong smell.

Saves time and its convenient

Cat poop scooping is not a favorite past time, not forgetting the smell. With a self cleaning litter box, it can take weeks before you think about emptying the litter box. You can use the time to do other important stuff on your list.

Some automatic litter boxes have a rake system that detects when the cat has done its thing. The waste is then raked into a receptacle that is usually odor controlled. All you are required to do is to empty the compartment regularly depending on the type of the litter box.

Other self-cleaning litter boxes rotate to deposit waste in a compartment while others are self-flushing and self-washing.

You will save a lot of time that you would have used to scoop and clean the cat litter box.

Don’t forget the convenience of not having to come into contact with your feline waste the way you do when you scoop manually.

More use of the litter box

Cats love cleanliness, no wonder they are likely to avoid a litter box that has waste and smelly preferring somewhere else clean.  You don’t want your cat leaving its waste just about anywhere in the house.

Self-cleaning litter boxes are the solution. With their mechanism, the litter boxes get rid of the waste as soon as the cat is done with its business depending on the waiting time set. The next time the cat visits its bathroom, it will find it clean and fresh ready to be used. You don’t have to worry about your feline leaving its poop all over simply because its litter box is dirty.

Remember that for some self-cleaning litter boxes, you need to empty the waste compartment or remove the disposable tray regularly to maintain the freshness.
