I bought a refurbished open air last year to replace my old dingy series 2 model. I've had no issues with it.

Sticker shock aside, this thing rocks. I'll never go back to a normal litter box.

Took a little while for my cat o get used to this. Helped by having this and the litter box initially and then at some point, taking out the old box and just keeping this.

Seeing it move will throw your cat off. A suggestion I saw was to take some litter from old box into new box. Will help with scent/familiarization.

This is what made the light bulb go off for my cats. And that's almost exactly what it looked like. I had taken up their old litter box and they hadn't gone in nearly 24 hours so I knew they had to go but they didn't get it. I used treats to lure them up to it but they still didn't get it. I finally got a cup full of litter from their old box and threw it in and all of the sudden they were like "OMG! THAT'S what this is?" And they both went in it within a few minutes and never looked back.

I got a new cat a couple of years later and I think it moving threw him off, at first. He's a nervous cat. I started giving him treats when I saw him pee in it and he's done well with it since.

These boxes work VERY well. I've had the old style one for at least 7-8 years now and it still works great. I'll get one of these open ones when it dies.

Hell, I put the old litter in the new box, complete with turds and all. Kept the old litter box in same room, tried different room. Then I took it away, and then hell began.

all the reviews I've been reading (slickdeals threads, amazon, google, their website, etc.) have come back very positive.

I just purchased it myself but have high hopes!

I have one. It's great if the cats use it but it's still a bitch to clean properly after a year or so. Even small pieces of litter can fall in the base unit and be difficult to get out and it's also difficult to really clean the globe. I pressure wash all the parts I can clean outside and then wash the base in bleach every now and then.

Tempting. I dont mind scooping though. It only takes 3 minutes a couple times a day. I can't bring myself to spend thtis amount of money on something so trivial.

I was on the final checkout screen and close though. Thanks for sharing OP!

One of the biggest advantages of this model is the tray sensor. The globe will not spin if the tray is full. If you forgot to empty the old model it could certainly cause a mess when the globe rotated.

My cats hated the 1st gen and refused to use it, I ended up getting a Petsafe one which works well enough.

3min x 3/day x 365days = 3.5hrs a year of cleaning cat poop/pee

Haha I already caved and gave it a shot. Worst caae scenario I lose $75 to have Fedex pick it up and return it. I talked to them on the phone and their return policy and warranty seems top notch.

If my cats take to it right away, I'll get the extra 18 month warranty.

I've had every model including this... they work overall well but do break down often. Make sure to get extended warranty.
