    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Cool design, easy to clean, reduces odor (supposedly)
    Cons: Very expensive, EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE RETURN FREIGHT COST if you live a long way from Wisconsin.

    Summary: We bought the L.R. II for our two cats.  One is 12 yrs and the other is 1-1/2 years old.  They had been using a Litter Maid for multiple cats, when it died after 3 years.  The Litter-Robot is really simple.  It resembles the ... read more
