I was so excited when I saw the Kickstarter campaign and I shared it with a friend also. We both hate it so much! I switched to my old box, he is using it as a regular litter box. To top it all off, this was my friend's first Kickstarter backing and both he and his wife, now think Kickstarter is a scam.
1. They say in the instructions that you need 3"-4" of litter. Had I known that, I wouldn't have even considered it. My kitty hates to get her feet sinking, so she ends up barely getting in. You know what that means? That her butt is hanging outside the litter. She would pee outside the box every other day. Drove me crazy.
2. Tried to use less litter (I think about 2"), and not sure if it's just my litter, but a little bit of pee started seeping in under the box.
3. Like so many people mentioned: the clumps of litter stick to the walls of the box; had to clean and sanitize it every day.
4. Because the box has so much litter and the walls are not tall enough (even with the guard), my cat would throw litter everywhere. Her litter box is in the same closet with my shoes, so imagine how it is to run out the door in the morning and discover you have litter in your shoes.
My poor little kitty, when she would end up peeing outside the box would feel embarrassed and scoop litter from inside the box to cover it all up. I actually spied on her a few times. The whole process of slowly waddling her way through all the litter and then trying to cover everything up used to take her double than with a regular litter box.
Never again! It was a painful experience for both my kitty and me.
Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend
