Litter Robot 3 Connect

Review date: 11/02/2020

Never scoop cat litter again! That's the claim this robot litter box makes, and honestly, that's some damn fine marketing. We love our cats. But who really enjoys dealing with the litter box. So, if you have $500--yes, it's not cheap to live the litter box scooper-free life--this WiFi-enabled, automatic, self-cleaning litter box could be the answer to your litter scooping prayers. Not only does it do all the work for you, you can also spy on your kitty while it poops! The litter box connects to an app that tells you "recent usage history" and "waste drawer levels." So you'll always know when and how much littler box business Fluffy has done. Whoo! Talk about peace of mind.

What could happen if something goes wrong

Last year this robot litter box didn't meet our Minimum Security Standards. This year it does. We love to see improvement! However, our privacy researcher gave AutoPets' privacy policy the award for the longest and hardest to read privacy policy ever. We don't love hard to read privacy policies. We also don't love that Autopets may share your personal data for marketing purposes, even if that's pretty common. A company selling a $500 litter box should do better, in our opinion. All in all, someone potentially spying on you spying on you cat pooping probably isn't the worst invasion of your privacy.
