Lid on. REALLY messy, but its very easy to dispose of. I do not scoop, I just change it completely out every 24 to 36 hours. I even put a throw away wee wee pad in the bottom then litter on top of the pad. Ive been using the shavings for the past 5 or so years. I like the lite weight, and I just put in trash bag and throw in trash.

That isn't weird, that's just another way! (If you think you are kinda weird, you shouldnt know where I indoor potty train Star...lol) When we used to have our cat, it was a storage bin too.

The s'wheat scoop is scoopable, but the pellets don't clump. If you go with a clay, there are low dust options.
I was wondering about the automatic litter boxes, and I just didnt know how well they work. I thought it would be the easiest because my brother is in a wheelchair, now that we are getting older, I'm just a worry wart when he just mentions anything. Cant imagine him bending over cleaning it without falling out of his chair.
Since several of you gals mention s'wheat litter and it flushes down the toliet. I will mention that to him, plus Huly's suggestions since it's natural.
Breeze looks like a great system to use and thank you Theresa for telling me your experience about it, it seems like it's the easiest for him to clean.
