Cleaning the house is tiring enough without having to sweep cat litter out of every corner. If that's the case for you, consider a self-cleaning litter box! Since so many exist, you can easily find one that fits your cat's needs, whether they prefers privacy or an enclosed space. Some self-cleaning litter boxes even have room for multiple cats and are better suited for those who love to travel with their furry friends, or fit for owners who live in smaller spaces. Many of these litter boxes also reduce odors — a true blessing, as cat owners know. To find the self-cleaning litter box that works best for you and your cat(s), here are 21 models we love.
