Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Omega Paw Roll'n Clean Self Cleaning Litter Box Large (Misc.)
As any cat owner knows (especially owners of indoor cats), the bain of having said four legged friend is having to clean out their litter tray. I have two adult cats and previously I was using two covered litter trays with swing doors and while these were fine, cleaning them out was a real chore and therefore didn't get done as often as it should have been.
I had looked at several "automatic" self-cleaning litter trays before but most of them relied on electric moving parts and inevitably got bad reviews so I never bought one. When I saw this self cleaning tray that doesn't rely on any fancy system that will inevitably break, I was far more optimistic and took the plunge.
This is probably the best cat-related purchase I have made. It works like a normal litter tray, there's nothing to scare the cats off so there was no problem in my two converting to the new one. In order to empty it you simply roll the entire tray onto it's back and then return it to it's normal position. This pushes the clean litter through a filter while the clumped litter and "other bits" roll over the top of the filter and when you right it again, they fall into the waste tray which you then pull out and tip into the bin. The clean litter that went through the filter then goes back through into the main compartment. Voila, done! This is very easy to do and takes about a tenth of the time it does to normally empty two trays.
The large product is big enough for two cats without needing to buy another one and I have had no problems with it at all. There have been some negative reviews about the waste sticking to the top of the housing when you roll it but as long as you roughly know your cats' habits and leave enough time for everything to dry after they have done their business before emptying the tray, this won't be a problem. Other bad experiences are down to not using the right litter I think, you do need to use clumping litter. I use an ultra clumping litter from pets at home (only £4 a bag) and it works a treat. The other thing you need to make sure of is that you fill the tray with enough litter so it is deep enough for your cat(s) to bury their waste without it touching the bottom, otherwise it will stick there.
In terms of negatives, there really aren't many at all. The build quality is maybe a little flimsy but I have experienced no problems with it staying together, this also means that it's very light which of course helps with all the rolling! The only other issue is that the opening doesn't have a cover so if you have a cat who likes to really dig and kick the litter all over the place it might get flung out of the hole onto the floor. My two are kickers and even then, there isn't much on the floor outside the box.
That's about it really! Overall, a brilliant tray which makes cleaning up your cat's waste an absolute doddle. Just make sure you've used the right litter and leave it until the end of the day to empty so everything is dry and this product will be an absolute godsend. Easier for you so the tray is emptied when it should be and therefore happy cats. Great product and it was delivered very promptly.

I've been using either Pets at Home's own clumping litter or catsan clumping litter. Any kind of clumping or preferably "ultra clumping" kind of litter should be fine.
