Suitable Auto Litter Box For High Spraying Cats

What happens when using high sided Regular litter boxes?

Some male and female cats spray out of the litter box, but what if you have a cat that sprays high, inside the litter box? If your cat urinates high, finding the right litter box can become a nightmare. The market currently offers regular high sided litter boxes for cats that urinate high and they work fine with some felines. However, sometimes this solution is worse than the problem because most high sided litter boxes come with an attachment on top to make it high sided, which is not seamless and some urine leaks through the seams going onto the floor, creating a bad mess.

Area Where The Urine Leaks

Connection where the urine leaks

If you find a seamless high sided litter box usually the walls are not high enough to contain the urine of large high spraying cats, due to the addition of the litter at the bottom which adds extra height.

Also, these litter boxes feature a lower entry to allow the cat to enter the litter box easily and this lower entry becomes also a point of urine leak.

On top of dealing with these design flaws you have to scoop the litter box every day and also cleaning the mess with the urine or feces that have gone outside the litter box. The rug, mat or whatever you use usually get ruined even if you wash it. Cat’s urine smell simply doesn’t go away.

 

What about High Sided Electric Litter Boxes?

Currently on the market most automatic litter boxes don’t features high walls, or at least not high enough to contain possible urine leakage. The reason is simple. Approximately 95% of automatic litter boxes feature a scooping rake which moves forward to deposit the clumps into a receptacle and then it moves back into position. This fact doesn’t allow the litter box at any point to feature a lower entry for the cat to enter easily into it and this is the reason the walls of these litter boxes are not that tall. Some of them are taller than others, but not enough for your professional pee-er. Add to this the fact that the litter adds more inches that make the wall less tall.

 

A Suitable Self Cleaning Solution For Your High Sprayer Cat

What if I tell you that there is a litter box that has the capacity of:

1) Containing efficiently (and with no leaking) the cat urine, no matter how high you feline sprays.
2) Automatically self cleaning every time your cat uses it, with high percentage of reliability so you don’t have to worry about design flaws.

This is like hitting two birds with one stone and that’s the case of the Litter Robot. Effectively, the Litter Robot Open Air is a great solution if you have a cat or cats that spray high when they do their business.

With this machine you won’t see urine leaks due to its design with a rotating Globe that is half lined by a very tough, impermeable liner. This liner drops down as as the Globe rotates, releasing all the stuck clumps to be dumped into the waste drawer (check a video how the rubber liner drops down on the article main features of the Litter Robot).

If any urine gets above this halfway mark where the rubber liner begins, it will drop down along the inside of the Globe to end up on the litter bed without pooling anywhere. As this dripped urine drops into the litter bed, it will form a clump which will be removed by the peeling action of the tough rubber liner during the cleaning cycle.

I created a demonstrative video for you to see how the rotating Globe contains the high sprayed urine, so you can have a better idea how it works:

 

How the Globe Contains High Spray Urine

The entry of the Litter Robot features a lip that helps to contain litter and urine as well. In case the cat directs its butt toward the entryway, you can get the fence which is one of the Litter Robot accessories that will contain any mess from going out of the litter box. This way wherever your cat directs the urine, it will go to the Globe, not outside.

If your cat is constantly spraying high inside the Globe you may need to clean the Globe a little more often than the average, which is once a month. You may need to clean the Globe 2 or 3 times a month instead of once. The unit is easy to wash, you just need to remove the Globe from the base. The Litter Robot consists of 2 halves, the Globe being the top and the bottom. To remove the Globe is easy and you will be able to deep cleaning it on the inside to eliminate the urine smell.

If you have a high spraying cat and have already tried several other solutions with no success, you may want to try this one as it’s the highest rated auto litter box on the market.
