The Question today is “Are self cleaning litter boxes worth it?”
The Question was asked here on yahoo
Well we are going to go through the true facts about automatic litter boxes and how they perform and if they are worth the amount of money people are spending on them.
Just to open up the discussion and I will talking to a few about about this topic as they are cat owners and i know for sure that they are busy people, one is single and living in a studio apartment and she is a busy lawyer in a high profile law firm based in New York.
The other is Married with 2 cats and they live in a house in LA, they have a back yard and they are also a very busy couple and unable to keep up with the demands of the litter box cleaning routines.
Both parties have expressed concern on both ends of the spectrum that they are unable to tend to the litter box as well as spend time with their cats as they are constantly busy, and if they do get a chance to spend time with their pet the chances are they are cleaning all the backed up litter waste from the neglected litter box.
When I mentioned these litter systems to these people they instantly lit up with joy but curved with some scepticism if the actually units would perform. Basically both parties are interested however the investment for the litter box is expensive and if it breaks down it would be hell to pay to clean up the crazy mess which would plague them.
Lets look at the bad points of not owning a self cleaning litter box that could potentially lift the weight off a cat owners shoulders.
- More time to spend with their pet.
- More time to Spend doing other enjoyable things socially and with other family members.
- Not having to come home to disgusting cat odour or cat poo around the house.
- Having a daily routine to keep up with your cats litter box demands
- Making sure your cat isn’t peeing and pooing around the house or apartment
- You would have to hire a house sitter or a pet sitter to take care of your cat, to feed, change the litter box and take care of your cats well being if you choose to go away from extended amount of time like a vacation or working responsibilities.
Now lets look at the positive side of owning an automatic cat litter box
- You have more freedom to set and forget
- Less litter box maintenance
- No need to hire a house/pet sitter to take care of your cat
- The job of cleaning the litter box wont be waiting for you
- The ability to go on a long vacation
- Not needing to worry about if you cat does their business in other parts of the house.
I hope this small discussion helped you in making a plausible decision on ruling that a cat litter box would be a good investment to make, that being said I would like to hear about what you think in the comments.

There would be a lot of drinking, watching football, talking to friends and family, and reconnecting with lost ties. Thanksgiving brings the family together to sit around a plate of Turkey and eat it, I think you will now appreciate the majestic turkey we bring you here.

If you are an automotive enthusiasts and you’re thinking about taking apart your beloved automobile you might want to think again when watching this video.
Men from the United Kingdom recently uploaded a video of himself rebuilding his engine for one of his classic cars.
The title of this video is called in 11 months, 3000 pictures and a lot of coffee, this video gives you the brief insight as to every aspect of rebuilding an engine for car.
I know for a fact that restoring old and classic cars is a lengthy and time-consuming process, I know because my father is a car enthusiasts and he would hours and months on end restoring not just the motor but the whole entire vehicle from painting, to rebuilding the engine, to installing new interior as well as fine tuning of the engine.
The general timespan of restoring a car can take anywhere from one year to 2 years depending on the time, parts, or any other process that needed to be done was lengthy and expensive to do it would take a lot longer.

Just recently I was subjected to the indignity of becoming a cat owner. Just kidding, it’s actually my housemate’s cat but it may as well be mine as I’m the one who spends the most time with her (the cat) and I’ve seen first hand how bored a cat can be.
It’s not like she has nothing to play with, she has toys scattered all over the house and a quick rummage under the sofa is much like a lucky dip at the state fair. I actually got up while writing to check my facts and sure enough I have in my hands right now 2 toy mice, 1 crinkly foil ball thing and the dangly part of a dangly toy on a stick. I’m sure if I went back for another look I’d probably find the stick.
Anyway, instead of giving you a running inventory of what lurks beneath my sofa, the point I’m trying to make is that cat toys suck. We have scratching posts with a ball on a spring, we have contraptions that automate the process of teasing the cat with a laser pointer and we have so many different kinds of wind up mice and all of these things are boring your cat to tears. Not tears like boo-hoo tears, but tears like what happens to the fabric of your sofa.
You wonder why your cat tears up your living room, why it attacks your hands with claws so sharp they’re envied by ninjas everywhere, why it sleeps all day and meows all night? You’re cat is bored, plain and simple.
As we all know, cats are hunters. Hunters are not interested in things that aren’t trying to get away. Things that don’t react to the hunter are not things that normally get hunted. You don’t hunt a tree, so why would a cat be interested in a springy balled scratching post for more than about 2 milliseconds?
Cats are only interested in things that are trying to get away from it. That’s why it loves the ball of yarn until it actually gets the ball of yarn, and your fingers love to retreat from the cat’s sharp claws which makes kitty more determined to go after them.
Some bright cat loving graduates from the University of Illinois have come up with a solution to this problem in the form of a very different kind of robotic mouse. Dubbed “Mousr”, it’s the first toy mouse that actually has a brain, it can see in all directions, and sports a long tail with interchangeable fluffy attachments that tempts your little hunter into a game of cat and mouse (sorry, couldn’t resist).
Mousr is different from every other robotic or mechanical mouse you’ve ever seen because it acts like no other toy mouse. More specifically, it reacts, and there’s the ingredient we’ve been missing all these years. Mousr caters to the part of the feline instinct that no toy has ever come close to stimulating. It runs away when it’s being chased, it wriggles out of kitty’s grasp when it’s caught and taunts kitty when it’s out in the open.
Put simply, this toy is the first cat toy that I’ve ever seen that promises to remain interesting and make your cat a happy cat.
I’m definitely buying one for this cat that I don’t own, not for her, but for me. If you want one too you’ll have to be quick, there’s only a week to go before the project expires … see http://kck.st/1z07tPQ for details
The project page explains that there’s also the ability to remote control Mousr using your smartphone for those times when you want to taunt kitty for your own amusement and Petronics, the company behind Mousr will continually release software updates with new behaviors as they are developed.
There’s simply too many things to say about how awesome Mousr promises to be. Do yourself a favor and head on over to the kickstarter site and see for yourself.

Earlier this year, pro skater Tony Hawk played a joke on the world by releasing a video that showed seemingly ordinary people riding hoverboards 2 feet in the air and performing various stunts. Again, the video was a prank but even for a moment it was great to believe that the hoverboard was finally a reality.
Well, reality has finally caught up to fantasy. Hoverboards are in fact real.
Sure, it’s not exactly quite as cool as what we’d all imagined, and it requires a metal surface to operate, but it is a hoverboard in every way, and it’s real this time.
Hendo, the company behind the hoverboard have developed it to showcase their hover technology in a way that we all can instantly understand. The company’s innovation can be used in almost every industry sector that involves moving things from point A to point B. Think about how a warehouse might benefit from a hover pallet jack. But the hoverboard is more than just a demonstration of Hendo’s innovation. It is an early indication that a paradigm shift in the traditional transport industry is coming, and also the enabler of things we haven’t even thought of yet. Imagine moving house actually meant moving your house. Whether it be for foundation and structural repair or just for a change of scenery, in the future this will be possible.
If you want to get your hands on your very own hoverboard, prepare yourself for the price tag. A cool $10,000 will get you your very own hoverboard which you can use on a yet to be built hoverboard skate park. This alone is worth the money in my opinion just for the sheer cool factor alone, but the truth is, the hoverboard isn’t even the actual point of the campaign.
The true star of the project is dubbed Whitebox+ and it provides substance to the equation. Whitebox+ is best described as a fully functional hover technology developers kit that contains a working hover engine and can be easily controlled from your smartphone enabling people and companies to experiment and innovate with working hover technology.
This is a true step forward in the journey towards hoverboards for everyone and a major leap forward in industrial innovation. Maybe we’ll see the real power needed to hover over water much sooner thanks to this.
If I’m honest, I’d love a hoverboard and have always considered it one of the things I wanted to see in my lifetime but the real object of my desire is the flying car.
Thanks to Hendo, I believe we’re one step closer.
Imagine you find yourself lost and stranded in a foreign city. It’s getting dark, you don’t speak the local language very well and you’re desperately searching for your accommodation in the bad part of town.
What would you do? Most people (if they haven’t already been mugged) would reach for their smartphone. But what if your battery is drained? Seems like there’s fun times to be had by all.
This is exactly what happened to the co-founders of the Sydney based startup Flintu. Lost and without charge in Bogota, Luke and Evan found themselves in a few dangerous situations and wished that there was some way they could charge their phones in an emergency. This is how Flintu and their amazing little gadget “Plan V” was born.
Plan V which you can find on Kickstarter, is a marvelous little gadget that can breathe life into your smartphone in an emergency using nothing more than a 9-volt battery as a power source. The reasoning behind this is that when your car battery goes flat, you use jumper leads to jumpstart your car. You don’t carry a spare battery because batteries are everywhere. The same principle applies to your phone. Plan V is simply jumper leads for your phone and given that you can buy a simple 9-volt battery in any convenience store (or steal one from a smoke detector) you can be sure that you’ll always have the ability to charge your phone when you need to.
With pocket or purse real estate as limited as it is these days you’re probably thinking that lugging yet another gadget around with you all day isn’t that amazing. Well Plan V is amazing not just for its simplicity and life saving potential, but because its also very, very tiny. The flexible rubber gadget clips onto your keychain and is no larger than a standard house key. It’s so small that you’ll forget you even have it until you actually need it, and you’ll be glad it’s there.
The makers claim that you can get another 4 hours talk time from a single 9-volt battery and this is more than enough to get you out of trouble. The kickstarter campaign is currrently open and the initial offering is for devices that use a micro USB charging port. Flintu promises to release an iPhone compatible Plan V as quickly as a month after the first shipment due to the expensive Apple certification process.
So whether you’re stuck in strange and dangerous city, or you’ve lost your charger and really need to get your flappy bird fix, Plan V has your back. Check it out.
