I bought this a few weeks ago.    http://www.smartcatbox.com/  Since Scooby's drinking and peeing so much, and Fizzy is drinking a little more, the clay litter we use gets saturated pretty quickly.  So I started looking around and found this on the Felinediabetes.com site.  It looked promising so I thought it would be worth a try. 

We used it for 4 days, and then went back to the old one.  The resevoir gets filled rather quickly with 2 cats using it, and I was afraid of an overflow if it got neglected for several hours.  Both cats would use it to pee, but would go upstairs to the 2nd clay box to poop.  At the end of 4 days, I saw Scooby walk up to it, stare at it, and then ran upstairs and peed in the clay. 

It's a good concept, and maybe if you have just one cat, overflowing would be less of a concern.  Also, after the short amount of time, I started to notice a slight odor in the pellets.  The box came with directions for cleaning, but I never got that far. Undecided     $100 ($76.00+ $25.00 s/h)  down the drain.  Anyone want it? Cheesy

DH was interested in a similar product, I'm not sure of the brand name. The resevoir collection of the urine was the same, but a replaceable pad was also placed there to soak it up. I felt that with heavy kitty use, we'd be on pad rotation duty all day long. I also read some mixed reviews of the product, and we decided not to get it.

We've been busy and haven't had a chance to try out some of those compressed horse bedding products as an alternative to clay litter. We'd like to be done with the clay!

So I hope whoever is trying to design a better litter box keeps at it, and does come up with something one day!
