#1 Its hidden in a cabinet #2 It is a self cleaning robot #3 Bottom tray is disposable 🙀


We have had a lot of problems with cat litter boxes over the years. We were so relieved when finally found a solution to the dreaded mess and horrible smell. To make matters worse we had a real big problem at my mother in-law’s house. She was getting too old to clean her cats litter box. She would fall down a lot and couldn’t bend down to clean the cat box anymore. We were all able to help her for a while but eventually her Parkinson's disease got to the point that she had to move into an assisted living home.

Assisted living homes aren't cheap they charged extra for everything. My mother in-law was paying an extra $100 a month for the caregivers to feed her cat every day. They were really nice they would even help her give her cat its thyroid medicine. But the one thing they wouldn’t do is clean the cat litter box. They said it was against company policy plus many of the caregivers were superstitious, and some of them were even afraid of cats. My wife went to see her mom every week and cleaned the cat box. I went over there every other week to help out too. But it was an hour and half round trip and sometimes 3 hours with rush hour traffic. So, it wasn’t something we could do every day.


But the one thing they wouldn’t do is clean the cat litter box. They said it was against company policy plus many of the caregivers were superstitious, and some of them were even afraid of cats.

Cleaning the cat box one or two days a week just isn’t enough. A cat box should be cleaned every day to prevent the spread of bacteria. A dirty cat box can cause a lot of problems for pets and people. Here is just a few of them to watch out for. Campylobacteriosis is a parasite that can cause bleeding, vomiting, and stomach cramps. Then there is Roundworms that can lead to vision damage, wheezing and abdominal cramping. Most people have heard that pregnant women shouldn’t clean the cat litter box. Toxoplasmosis is a parasite that is a danger to women and can cause birth defects. It can also cause flulike symptoms, seizures, blurred vision, and even lung problems similar to tuberculosis. These are just a few of the problems a dirty cat litter box can cause.



No wonder they wouldn’t clean the cat litter boxes at the assisted living home. They said it was against their company policy. That makes sense now with all the potential dangers in a cat litter box. So yeah, cat litter boxes are no joke. The best way to prevent the spread of all this crazy stuff is to clean your cat litter box every day and wash your hands really good when you’re done. Remember don’t touch your face or your mouth while cleaning a cat litter box. Some gloves would probably be a good idea too. Having a couple cat litter boxes can also help especially if you have multiple cats. If you are not comfortable cleaning your cat litter box, contact a trained professional.


To solve the biggest cat litter box problem, we ever faced my wife did a lot of research and discovered the ScoopFree original automatic Self-Cleaning cat Litter Box by PetSafe. It has a Health counter so you can monitor how many times your cat is using their litter box. Plus, it holds a 4.5 lb disposable litter tray.


There is a disposable litter tray under the cat box, and you just throw it away every week. How awesome is that? Plus, it uses premium Blue Crystal cat litter. This stuff really keeps the dust down too. The ScoopFree cat litter box by PetSafe is truly amazing but isn’t cheap. Its $238 on amazon plus the litter can cost over $20 a box. But in comparison to paying someone to clean your cat litter box every day the ScoopFree litter box can actually save you a lot of money. It can cost you hundreds of dollars a month to have someone clean your cat litter box every day. So even when you add up the litter cost this was a cheaper solution for my mother in-laws escalating cat litter box problem. The ScoopFree cat litter box is so convenient that we bought one for our cat too.



This isn’t a sponsored video we bought these PetSafe ScoopFree cat litter boxes with our own money. I do have Amazon affiliate links in this blog post if you want to order one for your cat.

It also helps to keep the mess and the smell down if you have the cat litter box is in a cabinet. I made a video on how I modified this cabinet to fit the cat litter box inside it. I am working on another video about what to do when the cat litter gets piled up and this thing stops working. The PetSafe ScoopFree cat litter box is great when it works but can have some issues and you may need to check in on it a couple times a week which can add up if you have to drive over to a relative’s house or pay someone to check on it. I just wanted you to know that as nice as this thing is it’s not 100% perfect.



But still even with a few of its problems this ScoopFree cat litter box is awesome. Not only do we love it, but our cat loves it too. It works so good we have it right next to our treadmill. It has 5x better odder control and 99% less dust. We aren’t the only ones who love it there are over 13 thousand 5-star reviews on Amazon. PetSafe says...
