My wonderful hubs purchased this for me after 14 years of scooping my for my darling Snowshoe's business. We decided to get another Snowshoe kitten, and I decided my knees and back had ENOUGH to scoop for two! The kitten has taken to the box as his favorite toy, and loves to watch the cycle run (we had to turn off cat-activate because he's so excited by the moving parts and air!). We're still getting the two cats adjusted, but my older girl knows it is a box, but she can't get in there yet without being ambushed by a crazy kitten! The only issue: Kittens can't always hold it; the box takes some time to clean itself, so until he's a little older and a little more able to wait, we'll keep it on Manual cycle. I'd recommend this to anyone with a cat- we love it. Super easy!
