I love when readers communicate with me – so I can share with you guys!
Floppycats’ reader, Jennifer, has previously contributed to the site – explaining how she was able to afford a Ragdoll kitten because of watching on of our videos where I mentioned Swagbucks. Then she posted this on Instagram saying…
The other day, she posted this photo on Instagram and tagged us: “We finally got our #litterrobot ❣️Anyone who knows Gus knows he loves to play in fresh litter and scatter it everywhere. Though I’ve a great manual setup, it is laborious and I’ve wanted the LitterRobot for a long while. . Thanks to Jenny @thefloppycats , all of her reviews and her bonus code. I am a nutty saver and chose to save-and-pay through my #swagbucks points. The official website also provides a payment plan. . Anyway, Gus took to it immediately and has to watch it cycle every time he hears it whirl 😂 He better love it for I am never sending it back 😏👍🏻 ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ This Post Is Not Sponsored ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ #litter #litterbox #litterrobotopenair #litterrobot3 #floppycat #floppycats”
Jennifer said again that she was able to get another major cat item for free from doing Swagbucks – so I asked her if she would be willing to do a write up that I could share with our readers. I especially wanted to share this with the folks that think the Litter-Robot Open Air is out of their budget.
Here’s what Jennifer sent in (in addition to the cute photos of her Ragdoll kitty, Gus, inside the Litter-Robot Open Air):
“Gus loves litter. No really, he loves his litter. He plays hide-and-seek in his two NVR Miss litter boxes, he announces he has to go to the bathroom with high pitched chirps. When I clean the boxes out, he jumps in and starts flinging the clean litter all over the floor. All of this was fun for about a month; then it became a physical pain. I suffer from a physical disability which makes standing and/or bending over for long periods of time painful. Manually scooping two boxes, and cleaning the floor, several times a day started to wear on me. When Gus and I moved to our new apartment recently, the daily disposal of litter and having an adequate area to wash the boxes (I don’t believe in washing clay litter down drains) was a new issue.
So, after nearly a year of sitting on the fence, watching Floppycats Litter Robot review videos and doing some monetary research, I decided to proceed with my decision to purchase the Litter Robot 3. As someone living on very limited income, and a month-to-month budget, several people were very surprised that I purchased such a high priced item soon after spending so much moving into the new apartment. However, for me, this automated litter box has already improved my quality of life 50% and I never want to send it back!
Thankfully, cat related information is not the only thing I have learned over the last year and a half while being a Floppycats subscriber. Jenny Dean introduced me to Swagbucks. After hearing her mention the survey/saving site in one of her videos, I became hooked and began prepping a strategy to use the points I have earned there to pay for nearly all of my pet supplies over the last year or more. This includes my Litter Robot. A very prominent feature people use with Swagbucks are the Amazon cards, but Litter Robot is not currently available on Amazon (I don’t think?). So, I started putting my points into PayPal. Once pet supplies were purchased for the month, I began dumping my extra points into PayPal as a type of savings account for anything high value I might need in the future. It is amazing how much you can save up over time when you really are not trying.
I had no idea the Litter Robot website offers a payment plan. After combining the Floppycats’ Litter Robot affiliate link and my Swagbuck points, I pretty much had the price covered. However, because it is such a big priced item, I decided to put it on the Affirm payment plan offered by Litter Robot. This way, the payments will deduct automatically from the account linked to the PayPal, and I will continue to feed it from my Swagbucks and not worry about it. Once the order was placed, my box arrived in about 4 days. It arrived fully assembled and worked as advertised from the moment I plugged it in.
As for Gus, he loves it! I would not have bought such an item if I had not known fairly well already that my cat would take to it. He is mesmerized by it. I kept one NVR Miss box with his old litter out and sprinkled some of it into the Litter Robot with new litter. Talk about a happy cat! He jumped in and started flinging litter as far as it could go. But the great thing is, it couldn’t go beyond the bounds of the Litter Robot dome. He plays in it, he chirps, he poops, he watches it cycle nearly every time and I put the old litter boxes away after only 4 days. There is no smell (Gus has very odorous poop) and faint cleanup. I just take the bag out after about a week and drop it down the trash chute.
It has been 100% worth the wait and 100% worth the price. I’m really thankful for the reviews and videos Floppycats has done because, when the time was right, I knew I had the right information to make the right decision.”
Join Swagbucks and use code “FLOPPYCATS” when you sign up to get 70 Swagbucks in addition to the 30 you get when you complete your profile, etc.
Some time ago, I put together a video of easy ways to get Swagbucks – I earn enough to equate to about $75 in gift cards a month – it really helps me pay for things I need, but can’t afford on my tight budget.
