Pet Product Reviews
Being a parent to a fur baby comes with lots of rewards (cuddle sessions!), but it also means you’ll need things to care for your pet. This means food, treats, tools for cleaning, and things to keep your pet safe when you’re home and when you’re not. To help you save a whole lot of time, we called on actual cat and dog owners to chime in on tests to find the best pet products available.
After our positive experience with the Litter-Robot 3 Connect for many years, we were excited to test out the new Litter-Robot 4 to see if it could get any better. We tested the Litter-Robot 4 for several months and compared this experience with our original Litter-Robot 3 Connect to see if it was worth the hefty price hike.
Cleaning the litter box is one of the worst cat parent duties, but this self-cleaning litter box, Litter-Robot 4, will lighten that load. Whisker created the Litter-Robot to scoop up dirty litter automatically, so you don’t have to, and they even built a custom app that monitors your cat’s litter box usage and health! After using the Litter-Robot 3 Connect for over three years, we tested the Litter-Robot 4 for three months since October 2022 to see if it was worth the $699 price tag.

We love our furry friends, but keeping an indoor cat means handling their bathroom waste. Litter tracking is part of most cat owners’ lives and is based on each cat’s behavior.
