The main purpose for an automatic litter box is to clean up after your cat finishes its “business” in the box.

Every pet owner knows that a cat litter box will develop a foul smell very quickly, and this is a by-product of your cats waste sitting in the tray too long (sometimes in a matter of hours). Bacteria starts to develop and creates an odor and an unhealthy situation that could be hazardous to both you and your cats health. Over time, the bottom of your cats litter pan will become warm and moist which is the perfect breading grounds for germs and bacteria.

As your cat visits the dirty litter box, the bacteria will get on their paws, and they will track it onto your bed, couch, counter top, dining table, etc. This is not something you want in your kitchen or living areas, and as mentioned earlier, can create a very unsanitary environment for your family.
