NATURE'S MIRACLE™ Self Cleaning Litter Box
One Fowl Box
I'm a faithful Petsmart customer and will continue to be however the Nature's miracle Self Cleaning box ($199) is absolutely the worst litter box I've experienced. A foil tray with litter would be better.
The unit looks cool and I even bought the recommended NM litter to use in it. When it first booted my expectations were high. Within the first two days it was filthy. The trap was 2/3 full, litter was everywhere and waste literally thrown out of the box by the automated system. To top that off, litter that had urine in it clogged the rake and got behind it so it couldn't cycle. I have touched more nastiness in the last two weeks than I have in two years using the Omega box. The rake actually fell of one day and threw waste everywhere.
It's been two weeks and my cat refuses to use it now. It has been a nightmare. I've ordered the even more expensive Litter Robot II in hopes that it'll be better.
Seriously for $200 my expectations were high and the unit performed worse than a disposable tray! Needless to say, I DO NOT recommend this unit.

Not Happy at ALL
My kids got me this for Mothers Day. I was so happy to get it. I have 1 cat. But.....I am not pleased with it at all. I have followed all the directions but thinking of just tossing it out the door.
Unless your cat will go in different areas of the tray each time...the containers fill up overflowing on 1 side with the other side being empty. The urine stays in the bottom of the box. The rack doesn't seem to have any effect on it other than breaking it up into little damp stinking clumps left in the tray.
It stinks to high heaven. Flies all over it. Litter all over the place, all over the floor around it.
The entire reason to get this was that I wouldn't have to deal with a litter box everyday. But this litter box is much worse than the normal everyday one that I had. Cost alot more to buy, cost alot more to maintain, the plastic disposal boxes, the charcoal odor squares, the Natures Miracle corn cob litter.
But the worse thing is sitting down to clean it EVERYDAY, I dread it, makes my old litter box seem like a holiday compared to this one. Save your money....

Have had this product for a year now, and I regret buying it. The rake is low powered for it needs. Every time it runs, I have to unjam the rake.
