Almost two years ago, we reviewed the Litter Robot Open Air automated litter box and since then, many readers have purchased it and love it. Some of those readers have either shared with me that they have purchased Litter-Robot accessories for their Open Air or have inquired as to whether or not they should.
Another reader did do a write-up about her experience with the litter robot open air ramp and litter robot open air fence.
So, Litter-Robot was kind enough to send us their Accessory Kit, which includes:
- a Fence
- Waste Drawer Liners
- Carbon Filters
For our home, I have to say that the only thing that was entirely necessary of the accessory kit offerings were the carbon filters. We have had our Litter-Robot Open Air for almost 2 years, so it was definitely time to change out the carbon filter thatcame with the unit. And the life span of a carbon filter is very subjective – our first one lasted 18 months (well, probably less than that, as it started to smell bad before then). That’s how I knew it was time to change it – I could start smelling the waste in the waste drawer – which I couldn’t before when the carbon filter was doing it’s job. Now that we have a new one in there, I once again cannot smell anything from the Litter-Robot – one of it’s great benefits.
As you can see/hear about in our final review video below, the other three items aren’t a necessity for our home. The ramp (or basically stairs) had an unexpected benefit of collecting litter scatter – which I didn’t know about until we reviewed it. My 8-year old Ragdoll cats, Charlie and Trigg both used the stairs to enter and exit the Litter Robot. Because ours is on top of carpet and a cat litter mat, it does not move – whereas it might on a wood or tile floor. But I would guess that Litter Robot Customer Support could always give you an ideas on how to secure it down or something (if it were to move back and forth when a kitty entered) – I talk about this more in our product review video below.
The fence did work out in our home just fine – but I think we could get by without it – but it is a great accessory for people who have kitties that like to scratch the existing rubber liner that is in that spot.
The waste drawer liners are nice and fit perfectly, but so do tall kitchen bags. So they are nice to have, but not a necessity. I would definitely order them if they were a package deal with something else because I know I would need them – but could also get some tall kitchen bags at the store if I was desperate.
Overall, I like all the accessories in the kit – but don’t think they are a necessity when buying a Litter-Robot other than the carbon filters. It’s really subjective depending on your kitty and living situation – so hopefully our review will help you make a decision for your lifestyle.
