The PetSafe Simply Clean Automatic Litter Box does not have the typical box shape implied by the term "litter box." Its round contours give it a vaguely kitchen-appliance appearance. Lacking visible moving parts and possessing a quiet motor, there is nothing to disturb or frighten the cat. This self-cleaning device runs continuously, 24/7, via a slow moving system that sifts the litter and places the waste onto a conveyor belt -- no scooping required. The waste is then dumped directly into the waste bin which can be lined with small trash bags or recycled shopping bags. Cleaning up means removing the waste bin and emptying it into the trash. The bowl completes one rotation per hour which ensures that the litter stays clean. This is how the Simply Clean uses less litter than a regular litter box.
One of the downsides of pet ownership has always been waste disposal. And as they continue to insist on eating, pets will always produce waste. Some animal types prefer to eliminate outside where there is good ventilation, but cats in particular are content to take care of business indoors. The issue of odor is ever a challenge, so for feline owners with fatter wallets, automatic litter boxes were invented. Well, for their cats. These marvels of sanitation engineering have downsides, however, not the least of which is noise. Cats are particularly skittish, especially during their private time in the litter box, and an electric motor and vibrating work area could send them seeking safer relief -- perhaps in the sock drawer. Also, many automatic litter boxes need replacement cartridges or special bags, both of which drive up the costs of owning one.
The Simply Clean is an environmentally friendly device, using a low-voltage AC adapter that can be plugged into a standard wall outlet for as long as the pet owner desires. It is recommended to use a high quality clumping/scoopable litter. To save wear and tear on the motor, there is a weight limitation of 15 pounds. As far as size goes, smaller cats might have an easier time using this box. It comes with a bowl, conveyor, waste bin, bowl guard, adapter and user manual. A nice design that is convenient and sanitary. Felix not included.
Works great but need to be larger not much room in there for the cat also needs a dome or much higher sides.
This box starts out cheaper than the other self-cleaners and is inexpensive to repair and I've been using the same three for 5 years.
It really works, and my cats love it, and moreover, I only have to tend it once a day to remove the sack with litter in it.
We have tried other automated cat boxes & they scared our cat, this one is quiet & efficient.
The motor does wear out and you will end up replacing them. But they work great with the proper ventilation and cleaning.
Better then other auto litter boxes I've had in the past, no costly cartridges or special bags.
I set it up on a timer to automatically run twice a day instead of 24/7, I change the bag once a week and add litter as needed and we're good to go.
Works great. It is a little small which can be a pain with my larger cat flinging litter but the product itself works very well.
I have had all types of litter boxes and Simply Clean keeps the litter the cleanest. There are no rakes to get stuck and need to be cleaned.
