Cat Litter Trays
Wow! What Happened to Cat Litter Trays
Cat litter trays have evolved a long, long way from the old poop and scoop style although there are still plenty of those around should that be your (or should I say your cats preference?) If you haven’t owned a cat for a while or maybe even never before you need to know that at some point you are going to need to familiarize yourself with cat litter trays. Even if your kitty is going to be living in and out of doors there are still going to be some occasions when he will want to do his (or her) business inside. The bottom line is (excuse the pun) that this arrangement involves having cat excrement deposited in your home along with the not so fragrant odor that accompanies the stuff that emits from a cat’s rear end.
Technology and Cat Litter Trays
Don’t panic though because technology has well and truly come to the cat owner’s rescue in the form of the most amazing cat litter trays you can imagine. No, I’m serious; these things do just about everything apart from toss the cat poop out with the garbage. In fact scrap that. There are some with automatic water flush that actually flushes the kitty crap down the drain. Other cat litter trays perform all manner of nifty tasks from self cleaning and deodorizing through too letting you know when it’s time to replace the litter. Yes indeed, cat litter trays have evolved and they are big business too. Which brings us rather neatly to the matter of just how much you are expected to pay if you want one of these super duper kitty poop traps.
Which Cat Litter Trays Are Best?
When it comes to answering the question, “how much should you pay for your cat litter trays?” It’s rather like asking how much is a piece of string? You can still buy the good old fashioned open topped poop and scoop version for less than $10.00. The automatic one’s and those that clean your pussies paws on the way out start at around $30.00 upwards into the hundreds. All that’s required is somewhere to plug it in and your good to go (well your cat is anyway). The high end stuff that beats as it sweeps as it cleans (I am exaggerating) can cost $400.00 or even more and some of these do require a water supply as well. In the end however it all comes down to what your cat prefers because after all despite what you thing he is really in charge. Seasoned cat owners already know that a cat won’t ever do anything it doesn’t want to. It’s all in my book The Useless Thoughts of Rantin Cat but that’s another story.
