I used this litter box, I love it will never change again, The poo stays on top and pee goes under pellets to a pad. The pad last about a week and pellets will last for long time. It so much easier and cheaper in long run. Here link for start up coupon and can get any place.

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.

Arm and Hammer is the only brand that I have found to keep the pee smell away but we have 11 cats. When I only had 2 cats I was getting Dr. Elsey's senior cat litter crystals and it worked great. Someone that I pet sit for only has 2 cats and the pine pellet litter works good for her but you can smell the pee if you are close to the box.
For litter boxes we use plastic storage bins that are about 12" tall so the cats can't kick the litter out of the box and they are cheap to replace when the plastic starts to smell bad.

Cats are notorious climbers. Why not put the litter box on a table or Pedestal of sorts. I'm sure the cat won't have a problem climbing up to use it. Even with the automatic ones, the trays that collect the waste need to be emptied, I would think.

I hope he can find something suitable!

I have 2 kitties plus usually another foster and we use dr. Elseys precious cat litter, I've tried almost every scoop able one and found this one to have the least dust which is better for the cats. I make my own litter boxes out of Rubbermaid containers

I have seen this and wondered how well it did work. I may have to try it out, as I have cats and hate the litter situation.
