I remember the first time I saw a video of a robot litter box show up in my Facebook Newsfeed. I thought it was something right out of the future and it was immediately placed on my mental Wish List.
That’s why when I received word that I would be receiving a Litter-Robot at no cost in exchange to review, I was quite excited. I told anyone who would listen – hubby was skeptical, the girls were amazed at my explanation, and my parents were ecstatic as they hoped it would mean they wouldn’t be scooping the litter box when we’re away.
I joked in my instagram stories that being SO excited about our robot litter box being delivered probably meant I was officially an adult, or maybe even a crazy cat lady, but that’s fine… I totally accept it because let me tell you, this machine is quite amazing.
Litter-Robot 4 is the automatic self-cleaning litter box. After the cat exits the litter box, the patented sifting process automatically separates the waste from the clean litter and deposits the clumps into a waste drawer for easy disposal.

Both of my cats are definitely on the skittish side so I took note of Litter-Robot’s suggestion of putting the box in the same spot, with the same type of litter, and leaving the box off for a couple of days to let Bella and Frosty get used to it first.
Although skittish, Bella and Frosty were definitely interested and started using the Litter-Robot the first day and I actually turned the machine on the second day… I just couldn’t wait to see how it worked!
It didn’t take the cats long to start using the Litter-Robot at all. That’s because it has a timer before it cycles – so while your cat is using the litter box, it’s just like any other box. Once they get out of the box, the timer starts and then it will cycle out the used litter. Frosty and Bella really don’t even know this happens, well, I take that back…
Frosty definitely knows because as soon as he hears the cycle starts he runs in to watch it!
While the Litter-Robot does take up a bit more space than a traditional sized litter box, it fit perfectly in the same space we had been using. We have our downstairs litter box in a living room that isn’t used often and with the Litter-Robot we no longer have to worry about odor.
Since the used litter is emptied right away, the odor disappears immediately.
Emptying the Litter-Robot and changing the litter is just as easy as well. I simply press the “Empty” button and all of the litter is emptied into the waste drawer and I just pull up on the corner’s of the bag and throw in the trash can. Litter-Robot does make special sized bags to use in the waste drawer, but regular kitchen trash bags work also.
That’s one of the things I love most about the Litter-Robot. There’s no special items that I have to purchase to keep the robot litter box working for my cats. Litter-Robot does offer some great accessories to make your box work more efficiently for your space, but none are required which I love since the machine is a bit of an initial investment.
With that said, I feel like it’s worth every single penny! I have nothing but high praises for the Litter-Robot after using it with two cats for a month. I’ve only had to empty it once so far and the litter box odors have really disappeared.
I feel like the Litter-Robot would be great for every home with a cat, but especially homes where the pet owner may have trouble bending or squatting to clean a litter box daily.
