Saves on Litter CostsThe robot saves so much on litter. The manual says to use about 8 to 10 lbs of litter or 1.5 gallons by volume. My old very large litter box took 25 lbs to fill because i always wanted the recommended 4 inches of litter in the pan. When I was scooping, I would over scoop and throw clean litter away as I tried to do so as quickly as possible. I can already tell the robot will save tons in litter costs for me. The first month of owning Maui, I had already purchased $50 in cat litter. The robot itself uses very little litter and throws only the litter that clumps out. Even though the initial cost is a lot, I see the robot paying for itself within a year or two. I only refill the robot every 2-3 days with just a bit more litter to fill the litter line inside. Emptying the robot out is super easy, the trash bag lining covers the drawer at the bottom. You simply take it out and put the new liner in. I usually empty the drawer out twice a week, and do not wait until the robot tells me to do so. Initially, there was no smell, but if the drawer is not emptied in a few days, I can smell something slightly. Keep in mind, it's been over 100 degrees where I live. I bet i will be able to get away with emptying the robot less frequently in colder weather. I'm thinking of adding something to the drawer to neutralize the smell a bit so I don't have to change the liner twice a week. Also, you can definitely use regular 10 to 13 gallon trash bags and do not need to buy the robot brand bags.Because I don't have to scoop litter, I considered and then put a deposit down for a second ragdoll kitten. I no longer have to dread this part of cat ownership, and Maui will soon have a sibling. This makes all of us happy. If you're thinking about the robot, I say get it!!! I doubt you will be disappointed. Make sure you read all tips on getting your cat to use the robot. My Maui is pretty easy going, and he took to it in no time.Here's the link from Floppycats that will give you $25 off"
