Health Benefits of the Litter Robot

Using the premier automatic litter box on the market is healthy and safe and this is the Litter Robot. How can this machine have health benefits? Well, let us tell you.

The Litter Robot is healthy for you because it means no more manual scooping for you and this is the key. Yes, with this automatic litter box you don’t have to hassle with or be directly exposed to the possibly germ-filled cat feces when cleaning up your cat’s litter box. Cat waste has the possibility of getting you sick, but when using the Litter Robot you don’t have to worry about that because this self-cleaning litter box has a unique rotating Globe that sifts and dispose of the cat waste minutes after your cat does its business.

This machine gets this job done through a clever rotating mechanism that automatically separates the waste from the clean litter dropping the clumps in a bottom drawer. But why avoiding contact with cat waste is healthier for you?

Why It’s Important to Avoid Contact With Cat Waste

There are various reasons why you want to avoid contact with litter and cat waste. There are zoonotic diseases and allergies that are transmitted from exposure to cat waste, such as E.coli or Toxoplasmosis.

Cat urine is also harmful to humans if clumps sit for a while without being clean, this evaporates in form of ammonia which could cause allergic reactions in people. This allergy could cause red eyes, itchiness, headaches, nausea, coughing, vomiting. Large amounts of ammonia could cause pneumonia and bronchitis in kids.

If inhaling cat waste and urine is harmful to healthy people, can you imagine what it could cause to people with immune diseases? People with conditions such as Thyroiditis, Fibromyalgia, Lupus, etc. should always avoid inhaling cat waste. Enter the Litter Robot.

The Litter Robot is healthier because it scoops the litter box within minutes of being used. Do you scoop your cat’s litter every day? Most people admit that they don’t scoop as often as they should. For some it just never quite reaches the top of their priority list until the smell reminds them of an overdue chore, others gear up with gloves and other items to make absolutely sure that contact with the litter box is done in a completely sanitary environment. When the litter box gets smelly, that means the air is already contaminated with germs. This is not safe and not healthy at all. Instead, with the Litter Robot, it waits seven minutes (adjustable to 3-15 with III version) after your cat has done its business before the waste is scooped up. Yes, just seven minutes and it’s gone until you’re ready to easily empty the unit.

Health Advantages of Litter Robot vs Regular Litter Boxes

The first one is that the Litter Robot gets rid of waste some minutes after your cat does its business which means a clean litter box at all times. This doesn’t happen with regular litter boxes which could have waste and urine sitting there for a while if you can`t clean it right away.

Second, when cats use regular litter boxes usually some urine or feces end up on the carpet or rug which is highly unsanitary. If urine stays in carpets or rugs could develop ammonia crystals, the same if the waste is deposit on carpets or rugs, it will develop harmful germs that people at home will breathe for sure. This is really bad if you have a tendency to allergies, immunodeficiency, immune diseases or if you are pregnant.

There are much more reasons why the Litter Robot is better than regular litter boxes or even other automatic litter boxes. Check an article about this topic here.
