Lift n' Sift Cat Litter Pan | Petco Store - Unleashed By Petco
If you like the idea of a self-cleaning litter box but don’t want to spend hundreds of dollars on an automatic model, the Van Ness Sifting Cat Litter Pan might be a good choice. This litter pan consists of two parts – a traditional litter pan and a sifting pan that fits into it. All you do is put the two pieces together and then fill the pan with your choice of litter. When it comes time to clean the box, simply lift the sifter pan up, allowing the clean litter to fall through the holes into the litter pan beneath. Then, just throw away the clumps that remain in the sifter pan. Not only does the sifter pan make cleaning the litter box easier than ever, but it adds some height to the pan to reduce spillage and gives your cat an added degree of privacy. Best of all, this Van Ness Sifting Cat Litter Pan is eco-friendly, made from 20% recycled content, and it costs under $20.
The Sift Away Litter Pan is a 3-tray cat litter system that puts an end to those days of digging through dirty litter boxes. Instead of scooping to clean, just lift the sifting tray and the clean litter will sift through.
Another option that works well (though it is more work toclean, in Mom's experience) is to get one of those LIft-n-Sift catlitterboxes that has a plastic 'screen' as a separate layer thatgoes over the litter in the main litterbox, then there's a rim thatgoes over that. See photo below. I think those lift/sift things can create an awful lot of dust and an unholy mess if the sifting pan is dropped before you've finished sifting. The pee-pad under the pan, and even the roll/catch both have the same issue that I would not like: Urine () remain at the litter-box area until the caretaker has removed the waste. IMO, this creates the perfect damp breeding ground for bacteria and odors If you wait more than a day to remove the waste, urine can start breaking down into a sharp and highly-noticeable ammonia odor.
