The best litter to use is the Cat's Pride Scoopable PREMIUM litter with the PINK top. It has the smalles litter pieces and works the best in the machine. The multiple cat and the natural turn into clay and the machine has a hard time moving the mess to the pan--you cna brake the litterbox. I have had a littermaid for years and I will not use anything else besides Cat's Pride Scoopable PREMIUM litter with the PINK top. I learned the hard way that not all litter, even from the same copany are the same.

answer 1
It's bigger for more cats and it comes with the carpeted ramp in front which does somewhat limit how much litter gets tracked away...if your cat walks out instead of jumping out like all of mine do. They walk in though so that does limit the 'splash' effect of the litter flying around when they would otherwise jump or dive in.

My two cats use it happily. I have to sort of scrape the bottom from front to back every day (because it can either (1) stay wet underneath and make the rake get stuck, or (2) dry in a layer stuck to the pan underneath and cause the rake to stick). I need to change the receptacle about once a week.

I use about 1 receptacle per year.

Every day I empty mine into a sealed container with a plastic bag liner. I then empty this bin every week on trash day.

after about a year of removing/replacing the plastic tends to crack and needs to be replaced.

these plastic trays are marked as recycleable, but by the time I get done with mine, it's pretty dirty and I don't bother trying to clean it.

Yes, as long as the disposable receptacle is seated correctly and the lid part is snapped in correctly. Use the carbon filters and sprinkle a little baking soda in the bottom of the litter receptacle as needed. I have 7 cats. I keep three littermaids in the bathroom which has a vent fan. I throw out the cat poo every couple of days and change out the plastic disposable once a week. I wipe down the interior sides and the rake of the littermaid with anti-bacterial wipes once a week when I change out the disposable container.

Not really. It might if you emptied it daily

The key is to use the better litter like scope away for multiple cats. Make sure you buy the one for 2 or more cats, its bigger.
Also, dump the container as needed.
The only time I have smelled urine is when I used a cheap litter.

I add about a cup of baking soda to my litter (mix it into the litter) and another cup to the receptacle which helps immensely with the smell. The receptacle itself does a pretty good job of keeping the smell down. I wash the unit with Simple Green once a month. You can also re-use the receptacle to save money by washing it with Simple Green, drying and adding baking soda.

It does a good job keeping the odor down until it starts to get full, but does have a charcoal filter that fits in the lid that helps. You can smell it a little when it starts to get full.

As long as you use the corn based grains you won't have a problem. My son used a different type and it smelled bad. My eyes burned.

if you change the bins before they get too full and add a little litter in between changes it should be good.

Pretty much. It's as good as it gets. Mine is in the basement and I only go down there once or twice a week now that I am "older". I also have 2 cats.

For the most part, yes. For extra odor control you can also purchase charcoal filters that fit in the receptacle lid-works great!
