The Litter Robot LRII is an automatic, pet safe simply clean litter box that does the messy work instead of you, which means that you will be free of all the mess and smells that comes with having to scoop up and clean your kitties litter box.

It doesn’t matter if you have more than one cat in your household as this device will cater for all your felines.

The design of the Litter Robot II is unique and is operated by a rotating mechanism or globe which separates the poop from the good litter. Then once it’s done that job it will go on and send the waste into a receptacle, which is located at the base of the machine.

So basically, here’s how the Litter Robot II works:

  1. Your cat will step into the Litter Robot II where its weight will be detected by a sensor.
  2. Your cat does his businiess.
  3. Then finally, when the cat exits the litter box a seven-minute countdown is triggered and when the seven minutes is up the litter box will begin to automatically clean everything up.

When the seven-minute countdown ends and the litter box is on zero the globe will ever so gently start to rotate, and will begin the job of separating the messy clumpy litter from the fresh, clean litter.  The clumps are then dropped into the waste drawer at the base of the unit and it’s in this drawer where the carbon filter is located to help with good odour control.

If your cat should happen to re-enter the litter box while the litter box is carrying out the cleaning cycle, as a safety measure the globe will rotate very slowly and the whole unit will shut off automatically for the safety of the cat. The unit will wait for the cat to exit and then after 15 seconds will restart again. However, if the cat stays in the unit the globe will not rotate until the cat leaves.

The Litter Robot II pet safe simply clean automatic litter box doesn’t need hardly any maintenance or cleaning because there isn’t a rake mechanism, so there isn’t anything in there to get jammed.

The only job you will need to carry out is the changing of the bags every now and then once they are full. This clever device will let you know when the bag needs changing, which compared to facing all the mess and smells of a normal litter box this has to be the way to go. You will never, ever, have to clean out a litter box again, so put that scoop down!

The area inside the Litter Robot II can easily hold a cat up to 15 pounds in weight. If your cat is lighter than 5 pounds in weight or you have a kitten then you will have to operate the device manually.

You will need to use clumping litter or biodegradable cat litter with the Litter Robot II. Filling the litter box is very easy to do.

It is quite a large device, so you will need quite a bit of space in the room it will be going in, but you don’t have to worry about noise as it is very quiet when carrying out a cleaning cycle.
