|Last fall I bought a fancy litter box. It is motorized and was quite expensive, around $150 dollars. And get this – it doesn’t work. The little grate goes back and forth but it doesn’t pick up everything and it leaves stinky used litter in the box and streams of litter down the front.
My sister has a much cheaper and efficient system she calls the relay system. She has two litter boxes (check a dollar store for really cheap boxes). When one needs changing, she puts it on the porch and then sets up the other one in its place. She uses newspaper in the bottom to collect leakage and a 30 gallon trash bag, which is much cheaper than bags made for litter boxes. She then empties the dirty one and puts some dish soap and water in it and lets it sit out on the porch to deodorize. And the best thing? You can even be lazy and clean it the next day.
