[Tarzan stared at his quietly-humming litter box for a very long time...]
As Tarzan is a finicky creature when it comes to his litter box, and as my new habit for weekend trips involves my not cleaning the litter box between Friday morning and Sunday night, I decided to invest in a self-cleaning litter box. I mean, really, who doesn’t need another robot in the house?
I went to NYCPET, where I buy Tarzan’s favorite litter. I saw the very same litter box Beth had…for $189.99 (plus New York’s 8.375% sales tax!) So I went home and asked Beth where she got hers, and what she paid. $100 at Fleet Farm. Doubting that I would find a Fleet Farm in New York City, I opted for Amazon.com. ($90.52, direct from Amazon, and free shipping!)
Tarzan was quite apprehensive at first – you’re supposed to acclimate you cat to the new, perpetually-spinning litter box, but who has time for that? – but he soon adjusted (bless his easy-going, ever adaptable soul.) I was able to leave him for four days, and there was really only one fault with the box…the lip is definately not high enough for Tarzan’s enthusiastic digging tendancies.
