Hi, my name is Brad Baxter, president of Automated Pet Care Products, designer of the Litter-Robot.
Well, the Litter-Robot was designed over probably 16 years ago now, and it was a product designedaround a need that I had with two of my cats.
I was having a lot of difficulties getting them to use the litter box.
I designed this litter box with the intent of essentially solving my problem.
The litter chamber is a sphere, and it rotates such that the litter moves up along with the globe.
As the globe rotates, there's a screen that comes around, and the screen then comes upthrough the litter and any clumps that are formed in the litter and separated onto aninner wall.
On the other side of the wall, the clean litter is captured and collected, where the clumpsthen fall through the waste ports into the drawer below.
The nice thing about the Litter-Robot is that after each use, it's clean.
So if you've got multiple cats, after one cat uses it, it's going to be clean for the next.
The Litter-Robot definitely manages odor.
What it does is it essentially contains it, and we have a very large carbon filter that'sin the waste drawer, which absorbs the odor.
Our customers tell us all the time that after they start using the Litter-Robot, peoplecome over to their house and say "Well, we didn't even know you had cats.
”We have three versions of the Litter-Robot.
We have the Classic version, the Bubble version and the Litter-Robot III Open Air version.
The Classic version, that's the very first design that we came out with.
The Bubble version is really the same as the classic, with a bubble-shaped window on theback of it, which gives you more front to back space.
Litter-Robot III Open Air, it's got a lot of new features, such as a nightlight, isa much larger globe and has a much larger opening, which faces upward.
It's more ergonomically designed for the cat and how the cat would actually use the litterchamber.
One of the great things about the Litter-Robot is you don't have to purchase a lot of consumables.
You don't have to purchase bags, trays, liners, chemicals, pellets, none of that.
Really, all you need is litter, clumping litter.
