We bought a Litter-Robot. Was it worth it?

5/10/2022 Update: Read our latest review of the all-new Litter-Robot 4!


During the holiday season last year, I kept seeing people sharing links to a giveaway for a Litter-Robot, which is an automatic, self-cleaning litter box. I had never heard of the hi-tech contraption before, but as a cat mom to five poop-producing felines, my interest was piqued and I wanted to learn more.

Note that I purchased the Litter-Robots myself and simply want to share our experience with a product I feel many cat moms and dads would be interested in learning more about.

For those who don’t know what the Litter-Robot is, I’ll give a quick overview of its features and claims. Then I’ll discuss assembly, and most importantly, what the cats think of it. Note that I purchased the Litter-Robot 3 Connect model, which is what I’ll be discussing. Continue reading “We bought a Litter-Robot. Was it worth it?”

My Dirty Paws (Day 8 of 12 Days of Giveaways)

Day 8 of 12 Days of Giveaways is all about giving back. I live in Southern California, and recently wildfires have affected both Southern and Northern California. When I saw that My Dirty Paws was donating a month’s worth of proceeds from their online shop to help the animals affected by the wildfires, I wanted to help out as well.

So for today’s giveaway, I’m personally sponsoring the product (I am paying for it so that My Dirty Paws can donate the proceeds), and I’m also hosting a commentathon. Read on for how you can help the animals affected by wildfires by simply leaving a comment on the blog – and then enter yourself in the giveaway for an adorable cat-themed tote bag by the talented artist Stacy Tang.

I’ve been a subscriber to CatLadyBox for a couple of years now – and I totally love it. I thought it would be fun to review one of the boxes that I received as a paying subscriber. And I asked CatLadyBox if they’d like to give away one box to a reader – and they said of course!

Before we get to the giveaway, let’s take a look at the November 2018 box.
