Love cats but hate scooping the litter box? Have an extra $470 burning a hole in your wallet? This wood and chrome smart litter box has you and your kitty covered. Your cat poops and this litter box knows it. And will let you know it too, through an app on your phone that connects over WiFi. 30 minutes after you cat does its business, the litter box will scoop it up and pack it into a plastic bag for you to empty once a week. Or push a button on your phone to have the litter box scoop whenever you want it to. Just make sure you don't have a fat cat, as this is only recommended for kitties up to 18 pounds. Oh, and buyer beware. The product looks like it is available to buy and you can buy it, but hidden at the bottom of the page is a notice that it's only available for pre-order. We'll keep an eye out for when, or if, it actually starts shipping. Some users have noted it might be a scam.

What could happen if something goes wrong

This product looks and sounds pretty cool on the surface. They have a nice looking website and it looks like you can purchase the product. The question is if you'll ever receive it. Some users have noted this might be a scam. On top of that, we weren't able to find a privacy policy for this product anywhere. There is no policy listed on their website. This is HUGE flag. We warn, this product comes with *Privacy Not Included. Also, the app collects personal information like email and date of birth and the app uses your camera and tracks your location. There is no way to know who is collecting that data, how it is being used, and if the app on your phone is spying on you. Having the app used to control your smart litter box leak sensitive personal information about you and your phone's contents to shady people on the internet is bad.
