CONSTRUCTION & MATERIALS

Le You Pet semi-automatic litter box is made from a non-toxic eco-friendly polypropylene material that doesn’t have a strong chemical smell like other plastics. The material of this unit is resistant to moisture, to acid an alkali corrosion and is anti-soluble, this way it won’t get corroded by the cat urine.

The litter box comes in several parts that need to be assembled according to the included instructions. The waste drawer and screen get connected to the roof by secure plastic tabs. Once you assemble the litter box the structure is stable and it seems durable.

HOW IT WORKS

Le You Pet features a very simple mechanism to collect the litter clumps. It consists of a stand and a bucket connected to a rotational tab that allows the litter box to swing up to a little over 90 degrees.

The bucket or litter box features a screen inside that sifts the dirty litter and it has a waste drawer right next to it where the clumps drop. All you need to do to clean the litter box is turn the upper part over and you will be able to sift the litter from the clumps to make them drop into the waste drawer and return the bucket back into position, the litter box is clean again for another use. To empty the litter box simply pull out the drawer and dump the clumps into a bag for later disposal.

The cat needs to jump into the litter box, about 9-10 inches to do its business. The litter area measures 15.5” Wide x 12.8” Large x 5” deep which is enough room for an average cat to use it without problems unless you have a cat that sprays high. The front of the litter bucket is a little higher than the sides which helps to reduce litter spillage.

Tilting design to sift and clean the litter

PROS

  • Cool design resembling a baby cradle
  • Eco-friendly polypropylene that is resistant to corrosion from cat urine
  • Easy to keep clean by just tilting the bottom
  • Easy to assemble if you are handy with tools
  • It separates the litter from the clumps efficiently
  • Seamless bottom avoids urine leakage
  • No need to scoop
  • No need to squat or lean over too much
  • No need to use electricity to make it work

CONS

  • You need to disassemble the unit to properly wash it
  • The assembling tabs can wear out over time
  • The litter area may be narrow for large cats
  • It may not work well for cats that spray high
  • Waste drawer is not lined
  • The waste drawer is covered but not sealed
  • The cat needs to jump high to access the litter box, most cats can do it, but isn’t suitable for disable or elderly cats.

TIPS

  • If your cat doesn’t want to jump into the litter box you can use a ramp to help him.
  • Use a good clumping litter with the best odor control since the clumps will be sitting in the waste drawer until you empty it.
  • Keep a good amount of litter in the litter box, too much will make it hard to tip.
  • You need to slowly turn the base over to properly sift the litter. If you do it too fast you might get clean litter falls into the waste drawer.
  • As the waste drawer doesn’t have a plastic liner, you can use the Litter Genie which is an excellent complement and help to dispose of the waste.
  • If you are not handy assembling things or with tools you might need someone else to help you.

 

CONCLUSION

Let You Pet is an innovative solution for cat owners that don’t like to scoop the litter box.

This unit uses a similar mechanism of the Omega Paw or the Litter Spinner but unlike those systems the Let You Pet litter box features an open litter area, covering only the waste drawer. This is a hygienic and better design since the other roll-over systems that feature a plastic globe make the roof of the globe smelly overtime and this doesn’t happen with the Let You Pet. Also, when a cat does its business in an enclosed litter box the odors elevates up to the roof and the plastic absorbs the ammonia overtime, creating a bad smell that is really hard to eliminate.

The other great advantage of this unit over the other roll-over systems is that the bottom of the Le You Pet is seamless so it won’t leak urine, though the walls are not high enough to contain high sprayer cats.

√ Let You Pet semi-automatic litter box is suitable for:

  • Kittens and small to medium size cats
  • Cats that are able to jump into the litter box

x This unit may not be ideal for:

  • Disable or elderly cats
  • Cats that use corn or pine litter
  • Large cats
  • High spraying cats
  • If you are not handy assembling things or using tools
