So much for buying an automatic scooping litter box.
Seriously, all those websites and reviews should include a disclaimer. “If your cat is at least 3 years old and set and his/her ways, s/he will protest the new litter box and litter by peeing on your couches and in the kitchen and smearing his feces all over the machine.”
A disclaimer like that would have really been useful to me. Long story short — we had to buy another regular litter box (a hinged hooded dealio from Target) and go back to the old Scoop Away litter.
So tomorrow, my job is going to be trying to get the hood and permanent litter tray shipped back to the vendors for a refund. On Tuesday, Trin’s going to clean up the litter box and get that shipped off.
