Litter Robot Vs LitterMaid Self-Cleaning Litter Box

Durable and high-quality cat litter box that cleans itself is the most-sought feature when cat parents shop. No more additional tasks when it comes to enjoying taking care of their feline pets. I will do a Litter Robot vs Littermaid self-cleaning litter box comparison to see how far or close their features to each other, and what box will fit your lifestyle.

The Litter Robot design can serve as a piece of home furniture because of the space capsule-like themed cat box, while the Littermaid is a space saver, and has a ramp for easy access. Spend less time on cleaning, and I hope this post will help you discover and decide what is best for you and your cat.

Factors We Considered When Comparing Litter Robot VS LitterMaid

Design

LitterMaid Multi-Cat Self-Cleaning Litter Box
The Litter-Robot 3 Connect has an out of this world design which we can even say that it is shaped like an elegant spaceship of some sort. And even its self-cleaning operation is not like your standard automatic cat litter boxes.
The LitterMaid Automatic Litter Box just looks like your ordinary standard cat litter box except that it features a ramp that claims to prevent scatter and tracking around the litter box and under the ramp itself. It also comes with free four disposable waste containers and lids to cover them up when disposing of them.

Ease of Cleaning

With the Litter-Robot 3 Connect, the mechanism or rigging starts its cycle after its waiting time. The globe starts to rotate and the litter will slowly be shifted down to the sifter until it is empty and pushes the clump of waste into the litter bag.

An excellent advantage of this smart litter box is that it will not leave any big or small particles of waste as the sifter works really well on doing its job of cleaning up after your cats.

The LitterMaid Self-Cleaning Litter Box comes with four disposable waste receptacles or containers that are to be attached just under where the ramp is attached.

Size

LitterMaid Multi-Cat Self-Cleaning Litter Box
The Litter-Robot measures 30 x 25 x 27 inches but the inside part where the litter bed is can feel quite cramped for your cat as it only measures 14 x 14 inches.

The LitterMaid Automatic Litter Box is also designed to serve a single-cat household and it measures 24 x 17 x 10 inches and the ramp measures 13 ¾ x 8 inches (WxH).

This litter box is already messy enough when used by one cat so just imagine if more than one cat uses this litter box.

Smart Features

Litter-Robot 3 Connect

LitterMaid Multi-Cat Self-Cleaning Litter Box
Litter-Robot 3 Connect is more innovative in terms of its features. It offers more than the latter such as WiFi connectivity and its Connect App that can not only show you various information about your cat and the litter box itself but it also allows you to adjust the settings such as the self-cleaning cycle, sleep mode, etc.

The LitterMaid Litter Box has the same feature as the previous which is the sensor which starts its 10-minute timer after your cat has left the litter box and then the rake starts pushing the waste materials into the waste container.

The downside to this is the rake itself as it is very loose in a sense that it is not able to take out the smaller clumped waste into the waste receptacle, and it just sits in the litter bed.

The Litter-Robot 3 is made of sturdy materials that ensures its longevity and durability even if used frequently by multiple cats.
LitterMaid, on the other hand, also looks like it is made out of strong plastic materials while the ramp has a rubber that is designed as honeycomb-like for better tracking and litter scatter prevention.

Price

The Litter-Robot 3 Connect is a bit pricey. It costs $499 and you will have to add another $499 just to be able to use its Connect feature.
The LitterMaid Self-Cleaning Litter Box costs only $79.99 so if you are looking for a standard, cheaper automatic cat litter box, this may not be a bad choice for you. However, the disposable containers may cost you around$5 a month if you are to dispose of and change the waste container about once per week.

Conclusion

For me, I still prefer the Litter Robot 3 because of its smart features and I don’t have to replace disposable litter boxes often, and in the long run, it’s worth it, although Littermaid is great for its price, and also a great starter when saving up for other things or upgrading your cat care tools. I do not have to mind about my cats splattering the floor. I recommend Litter Robot 3 for the reason that it helps me with my easy cleanup tasks with its sensors, thorough sifting cat waste and heading these straight to the litter bag.  I can even control the settings on the app especially when I’m away from them. Both sturdy and high-quality, I am sure you will be satisfied having either of these on your home. Check the current price for Litter Robot here.
