The weekend is finally hereeeee!! Fridays are always my favorite because I get to go home, relax with Jordan and the cats, and get the weekend started.
I always get my cleaning done during the week so when the weekend comes, the apartment is clean, fresh and ready for me to laze around haha! The one thing that has been a challenge I’ve had to learn to work with is living in a 1-bedroom apartment with two cats. (They’re adorable, but MAN they can destroy a house quickly! *Looking at you, Raven.*)
The one thing that was always super difficult to keep up with was the litter box. I leave every other weekend to go see Jordan in Beaumont, so when I would get home, the litter box would be near unbearable, especially once Raven was added into the picture and we had two cats, rather than one, to contribute to the situation.
I was having a really hard time keeping up with the cleaning of the litter box and never seemed to be able to get ahead. To make matters even worse, Marilyn is super picky about her litter box situation and started going to the bathroom on my floor RIGHT NEXT TO THE LITTER BOX if there was even a little something in there. (Diva, I know but I mean I really can’t blame her.) Even if I cleaned it in the morning before I rushed off to work, it would still be dirty when I would get home and she would go on the floor.
I learned about the Litter Robot when I was looking up automatic litter boxes on Wayfair this past summer. True to character, I started doing my research and learned about the company and the litter boxes themselves. I read a ton of reviews on it and couldn’t find anyone who didn’t like it! They have 90-Day money back guarantee so you have time to try it out and make sure it fits your lifestyle, as well as an 18-month warranty, so I figured I might as well give it a try!
I can honestly and wholeheartedly say that the Litter Robot has completely changed the way we live at The Barfield House! I cannot explain how much EASIER cleanup after the cats has become. I used to come home to such a mess, (either from Marilyn using the restroom on the floor, or just to a rather stinky situation in general). Since getting the Litter Robot, my life when I get home has gotten SO much easier. I don’t have to worry about cleaning the litter box right when I walk in the door or worry about it before someone comes over. It doesn’t smell anymore and I even have it in my LIVING ROOM!! The biggest way it’s helped me out though has been when I go out of town on the weekends to see Jordan. I don’t have to worry about coming home to a GROSS (and I do, quite certainly, mean GROSS) situation, and I know my babies have a clean litter box all weekend long.
I have the Litter Robot 3 Connect, which is REALLY convenient. The thing that is super cool about this version of the Litter Robot is that it has a Litter Robot App (click to see the app!) that you can download on your phone that tells you EXACTLY when you need to change the waste tray. It sends me a notification telling me when the tray is full and all I have to do is open it, tie up the bag and throw it away, and put a new bag in. It also uses just regular trash bags too, so you don’t have to worry about trying to find a certain kind of bag for it or anything. I use the same kind of trash bag I always have and it works perfectly!
Also, I was super worried at first about Marilyn being scared of it, since it was different than her other litter box and she is a pretty skittish cat. I knew Raven would be fine, because she literally doesn’t bat an eye when a train goes by outside, but Marilyn is a kitty who is normally hiding under the bed. I thought she might have some trouble adjusting to the Litter Robot and I thought she might want to go on the floor instead, but she didn’t have ANY trouble whatsoever! I was extremely surprised (and relieved!) that she took to it without any problem whatsoever. Litter Robot does have some tips on their website about getting your cat acclimated to the Litter Robot, if you think they might have trouble at first. I found that Marilyn and Raven were both more interested in the Litter Robot than anything else! They would go in and do their business, walk out, and sit in front of it to wait and see it start turning and scooping! It was quite the amusing sight, I must say!
I am so extremely happy to have found out about Litter Robot. If you lead a busy life like I do, you know it can be so stressful to try and get everything done on schedule, so if there is something to make life a little easier, I TAKE IT. It was the perfect solution for me and I’m so happy my little kitty babies benefit from it too. If you want to check out Litter Robot for yourself, head over to their website to view their products and look at TONS of other reviews as well! I also found it helpful to watch this video on YouTube to see exactly how the Litter Robot works. After that, I was SOLD! 😉 Also, they are offering Black Friday bundles right now, so make sure to check those out too!
As always, thanks so much for reading friends, and I hope all of you have a wonderful weekend! Xx.
