The Smart Cat Box. Saves Money Too!

The Tiniest Tiger and the Smart Cat Box

The Tiniest Tiger and the Smart Cat Box

Hi Friends!  It has been 16 weeks now that I have been using the Smart Cat Box. Now I typically don’t like to discuss my litter pan issues but  I think this is important information to share with you.

You might remember that we had a discussion about To Clump or Not to Clump? In this discussion we talked about the issues with clay litter.  My parents were purchasing  a popular brand of natural clumping litter for me to use.  It was not a clay litter but made from natural biodegradable corn fibers.

Some of you might already know that I suffered from pancreatitis and transient diabetes. During this time, it was necessary to test my glucose levels on a regular basis.  Unfortunately, this meant getting an ear or paw stick with a super sharp pointy needle.  My parents said it hurt them more than me, but I don’t know about that.  I never got to sneak up on them and poke them in the ear with a needle  to see if it hurt me more than them.  Sorry for the digression.

One happy day in May, our friend Jone told me about the Smart Cat Box.  I got in contact with Sara Maguire, the creator of this unique box.  Sara was so concerned about my sticky situation that she offered to send me a Smart Cat Box to try. Sara, is a genius because she designed the Smart Cat Box with a urine collection system (your pee goes into a container).  Now my parents can use a  Keto Diastix Strip to test my glucose and ketone levels.  Pain free for me and for them, I guess.

Here is what I want to you know about the Smart Cat Box

  • User Friendly - I took to this box right away.  I used my old litter pan less and less and started to favor the Smart Cat Box.  ( I have two littler pans.)
  • Eco Friendly- Because your parents can flush your pee, there are no more of those stinky pucks of pee lurking in your box to be scooped out and disposed of in a plastic bag.  Oh your poo too.* unless you live close to the ocean.  If you do place the poo in a paper bag  in the garbage.  Our poo is not good for sea otters!
  • Less Work- My parents are telling me that this is the lowest maintenance litter pan they have ever used.
    • Less Tracking-  yes and no more icky sticky paws!
    • Less Odor – my parents are amazed.  And my poo is pretty smelly.
    • No Dust- None!!!!

And what is perhaps one of the best things about the Smart Cat Box is that you will save money!!

  • Less Expense – Here is our cost savings so far.*based on my habitat

Before the Smart Cat Box, my parents were using 1.5 bags of natural clumping litter per week.

Each bag costs approximately $11.12 (litter plus tax)  $11.12 x 1.5 x 16 weeks =$266.88

We have used  15 lbs of the Seedtec Safflower Seeds. $11.22 for 5 lbs. (Seeds plus shipping)= $33.66

$266.88-$33.66= $233.22 SAVED

Now even if we deduct the cost of the Smart Cat Box:

$266.88-$33.66= $233.22- $65.00 (cost plus shipping) =$168.22 SAVED

Over a year our habitat will save

1.5 bags natural clumping litter per week   $11.12 x 1.5 x 52 weeks =$867.36

Averaging 1 lb of Seedtec seeds per week  $2.24 x 52 weeks = $116.69

$867.36 – $116.69 = $750.67 SAVED

Even if you are super stinky and for some reason would use twice as much Seedtec seeds, you will still save  over $600.00!

This savings more than pays for your Smart Cat Boxes.

    Is anyone using the SmartCat Box? If so, how is it working? If not, what didn’t work? I would really appreciate the feedback. Thanks!

  • Debbie

    My question is about odor control:  I would think the pooled urine would smell stronger, but it doesn’t because of the containment system?  And the seeds take care of the smell of the feces (thinking throughout a workday) satisfactorily?  I notice the 50 pound resupply option is no longer available; does that mean that the seeds are in short supply?  (I’d hate to purchase this and then find out I could no longer get the litter.)  Thanks for your time to answer my questions.  I am such a skeptic!

    Yeah, Gracey, Troy & I were talking about it the other night, as you know we have 12 cats! What if they all use the same box one day for some odd reason & we all know you kitties can be odd! Will the pan overflow? We clean out the boxes 2-3 x a day, depending if needed. We use the clumping litter, which is breaking us! But wasnt sure about the pan of urine to dispose of. Is it easy to carry without spilling??? Thank you! Judy

    How well do you think this would work in a multicat house hold? There are 12 of us…we have three LARGE tubs (in different rooms)for litterboxes, and two kiddy wading pools ouside on our Catio.

    Thanks, The Lounge Kats
