Investing in the best self-cleaning litter box can be life-changing. Cleaning your cat's litter boxes is a horrible, messy job, and if you don't do it often enough, your cat is way more likely to have an accident in the house. Self-cleaning litter boxes will not only save you time but help keep your home from smelling like litter all the time. Whether you're looking for a fully automatic self-cleaning litter box to do all the dirty work for you, or you want something to make the cleaning process go smoother, here are the best self-cleaning litter boxes around.

Helping with the clean up

Self-cleaning litter boxes make short work of any mess your cat leaves behind and will save you lots of time scooping and changing litter. Although it's not entirely automatic, the Omega Paw Elite Roll 'N Clean Litter Box (opens in new tab) allows you to use the same litter you already have and will save you precious time and effort to keep your cat's litter box clean.

Plus, the more consistently you keep your cat litter free of waste, the less cat litter you'll have to buy, so you're saving money in the long run. The PetSafe Simply Clean Self-Cleaning Cat Litter Box (opens in new tab) uses ordinary clumping litter rather than expensive specialist products, so this is an affordable solution.

If you're looking for something more automatic, the LitterMaid Automatic Multi-Cat Litter Box (opens in new tab) rakes away your cat's waste into a bin you can easily clean. A ramp makes it easier for older cats that aren't as agile to get in or out, and it's designed with multiple cats in mind!
