Automatic and Self-Cleaning Cat Litter Boxes

Self-cleaning litter boxes, or automatic cat litter boxes, are a great way to ensure that your cat's litter box is always clean. Think of a self-cleaning litter box as your cat's personal robot litter-scooping butler. Using an automatic kitty litter box also means that you won't have to spend time kneeling over your cat's litter box scooping, so you can spend more time cuddling your cat. Some of our electronic litter boxes come with disposable litter trays, so you never have to scoop, clean or refill the cat litter box with more litter.

What is the best self-cleaning litter box?

The best self-cleaning litter box for your cat depends on her specific needs. Does your cat prefer a covered litter box or an uncovered litter box? Would you like to use disposable crystal litter trays or traditional clumping litter? Explore the different features of our automatic litter boxes to determine which is the best fit for your family.

  • Our Simply Clean® Automatic Litter Box will clean your cat's waste for you around the clock and carries pet waste up a conveyor belt and drops it into a waste container which helps trap odors.
  • With our ScoopFree® Self-Cleaning Litter Box, you can ignore the cat litter box for weeks. This litter box uses a motion sensor to detect when your cat has entered the automatic litter box and, 20 minutes later, scoops the cat waste into a covered compartment.
  • ScoopFree® Smart Self-Cleaning Litter Box let's you stay connected to your cat's health. This cat litter box connects to the MyPetSafe® app so you can monitor your cat's health from anywhere. You can also give your automatic litter box an extra scoop through the app whether you're in another room or at the office.

Frequently Asked Questions About Self-Cleaning Litter Boxes

Can I use a self-cleaning litter box for multiple cats?

You can use our ScoopFree® Self-Cleaning Litter Box for multiple cats, but you will have to change out the litter trays more often or purchase an additional self-cleaning litter box. If you're using crystal litter trays, each tray lasts about 20-39 days with 1 cat, 10-15 days with 2 cats and 7-10 days with 3 or more cats.

Do automatic cleaning litter boxes work?

Yes, automatic cleaning litter boxes work. Automatic self-cleaning litter boxes work by scooping your cat's litter soon after your cat uses the litter box to keep it clean. This means that you, as the cat parent, won't have to spend time scooping your cat's litter, and your cat will be happy because the self-cleaning litter box will freshly scoop her litter box automatically.

To ensure that your automatic cleaning litter box works properly, follow the instructions closely and only use the type of litter recommended for your self-cleaning litter box.

Can I use regular litter in self-cleaning litter boxes?

Only use regular litter in self-cleaning litter boxes if the litter box is designed to work with traditional clumping litter. For example, our Simply Clean® Automatic Litter Box works with clumping cat litter, but our ScoopFree® Self-Cleaning Litter Box only works with crystal litter.

Do automatic litter boxes smell?

Automatic litter boxes are designed to help reduce smells and pet waste odors. These types of cat litter boxes automatically sift and scoop waste to help keep waste out of sight and out of smell. Our ScoopFree® Premium Crystal Litter is very effective at reducing bad odors. Crystal litter has 5 times better odor control than traditional clumping litter, adsorbs liquid waste and dehydrates solid waste to help stop smells in their track.
