Questions & Answers for Omega Paw Omega Paw Roll 'n Clean Litter Box

Question

Does this box work well for old cats who urinate in huge amounts?

Several years ago, I ponied up the money for one of those self cleaning boxes. One of my cats was almost 20, & he released such a large vollume of urine, that the litter glommed onto the teeth on the sweeper. What a mess! I have an 18, a 15, & a 12 . Has anyone used this system on "high volume" cats?

Well, I have four cats and only ONE of mine has used it, true I have only had it a few weeks, but even with this one cat using it - I have found that it is more work for me. The urine sticks and if it gets in the grate - THAT'S A MESS. Would work good for kittens.

I think it would work just great! As long as you put a significant amount of litter in the pan to allow for proper clumping. There's no mechanics to it :)

My answer may be too late, I just started using the roll n clean a few days ago. My hairless cat is a "high volume" cat due to the amount of water the breed consumes daily. I too tried a self cleaner that was a complete waste of $$, I even went so far as to attempt to potty train him. The roll n clean so far is the best litter box!

i have older male cat who urinates alot and this box works good for us.. still trying different litters .. trying different ones as I am at work for 12-15 hours and by time i get home he likes to urinate in same corner like a dog, so it may stick to bottom when you roll box over, for removal process, but i take my running shoe & bang on bottom & you will hear a plop, then roll it the rest of way, roll back to start position & pull out little drawer with clump in it & place in waste bag. It really works pretty cool... I never would have thought of this design. If you have 3 cats using same box, you'd have to check it alot, but if each cat has own box, you'd be fine... for $20 its worth a try.

This would probably work just fine as long as the urine is not soaking the litter all the way to the bottom( where it can stick). There is a lot of room in the large sized one that I bought and it just uses gravity, so there are no prongs that are going to press their way into the clumps and gum up!

Yes, as long as you keep the level of clean litter high enough to keep the urine from soaking through to the bottom of the box. Otherwise, you'll have to knock it loose and give the box another tumble.

Yes. I also have a 'high volume of pleasantly plump cats and older cats. I thought I would have issues with them using the Omega Paw, because they were used to an open cat box. I was mistaken. They took to it like catnip. You just have to bang it on the bottom, when rolled and that's it. NO MESS! And do it often, it only takes a few seconds. I do recommend that you buy the large size and keep away from the automatics.

Yes. All you do is turn the litter box upside down and over again. Pull the drawer out and the clumps should be in the drawer. Throw the clumps away. Put drawer back in. Tip cat box from side to side to even out and your done. No mess anywhere because the litter box is completely covered.

I have a large cat that urinates alot and bm several times a day. I think the type of litter you use maybe the problem. You might need hard clumping litter. If your cat doesn't cover his urine or feces well you should to ensure it clumps. You may need a larger amount of litter in the box and to change it more frequently, otherwise the litter will remain moist and stick to the grates..

It is really easy. You roll it over once or twice, then remove the tray/collector. A bag is not needed during the process, but to despence it, you could use a bag to put it in the trash. The only thing about this litterbox is that it misses the really small pieces.

Correct, no bags are needed at all. Cleaning the litter box is very simple. You roll the unit onto it's lid (I tap the bottom a few times), roll it back past its original position to level the litter out, and slide out the drawer that contains the used litter and toss it!

No, this box doesn't need a bag. In fact, it wouldn't work properly if you used a bag. Daily cleaning takes literally seconds. Just roll, slide out the waste tray and dump. Every week or so, I empty all the litter and wipe with a damp cloth. Just remember to use a good clumping litter.

Question

Clumps and leaks

Looking at the pictures, how well do the clumps fit through the slots? My cat leaves huge clumps of litter when he urinates, so I can't see them fitting through the narrow slots. Also, he tends to go into the corners, often causing urine to leak between the lid/bottom and onto the floor. Does this litter box have that same problem? Thanks for your help!

The way it works is when the box is tilted the non clumped litter will filter through the slots into a 'holding area' while the clumps roll over the screen and into the drawer. When the box is tipped back to its original position and tipped slightly in the opposite direction, the litter will flow from the 'holding area ' back to the main part of the box. As far as the urination goes, I've never had a problem with it. Hope this helps

The clumps don't go through the slots, just the clean litter. The clumps roll/slide over the slots to the drawer. It would have been nice to see some sort of animation to explain what happens inside the litter box when it's rolled, it's hard to describe in words. But it does work very well in separating the clumps from the clean litter. As far as your problem with leaking, the seam on this box is much higher than the covered box I had many years ago. I would recommend that you get the large size - I bought the small size and it's almost TOO small for my two girls. Had I known, I would have bought the larger size.

The clumps don't fit through the slots, the unused litter does. It slides through the slots and stays to the right while the clumps roll over it and into the collection tray. Once you roll the box back upright, you kind of have to give it a little shake to level the litter back in the bottom. I haven't had an issue with anything leaking. I purchased the large size, which I would recommend unless you have a very small cat.

As you roll the box over the waste goes up over the top into the waste drawer and the good litter goes through the slots so it doesn't get thrown away. You just have to be careful not to overfill the litter. The clumps will loosen and fall as the box rolls over and go into the waste bin. As long as the separation piece is firmly snapped into place you should not have a problem.

The clumps don't go through - the clean litter goes through the slots. The clumps slide over the slots - a grate - and into a basket. When you roll the box back on it's base the clean litter comes out through the grate, back into the bottom of the box, and the clumps stay in the basket. You slide out the basket and dispose of the clumps. Whoever thought of this design is really clever. It works. Makes the task so easy that I find I do it more often so the box stays much cleaner and I am sure the cats much happier! I have had no problem with the box leaking. My cats are big and also use the corners, but the lid locks on really tight so no problems.

I never have a problem with clumps. My cat goes alot and every time I clean the box, all the feces and urine clumps make it thru the slots and end up in the tray. The only thing u will notice is that loose litter will also go thru the slots occasionally. So sometimes u will have all the clumps etc with some extra litter in the tray. Compared to the alternative it's no big deal to me.

I have had a few pieces of lone litter get out. but, nothing like what I used to deal with with the old tray or covered boxes I have used in the past. I really would say none but I'm too honest as yes i have seen maybe 4 or 5 pieces of litter sneak out. Not enough to make an issue out of. As a matter of fact I used to have a mat in front of my old litter box and I no longer use it.

I don't really have this issue with this box. They box is pretty deep so as long as you don't fill it all the way up with litter its hard for them to spill it outside the box. I have a matt under the box that catches any loose litter stuck to their paws. This can be dumped back into the box or trash as needed.

I use clumping litter with mine and I have a 4 month old kitten. She's used to clumping litter so I didn't see a reason to change that.

It works best with a good quality clumping litter such as Fresh Step Multi-Cat.

I would avoid the absorbent non-clumping litter as the cat urine will eventually overwhelm the litter box and the litter will need to be changed completely (Same as directed by the instructions for that kind of litter)

When we use Fresh Step, we just keep adding more as needed to maintain a 4 inch 'optimal' depth. We've hadn't needed to replace the entire load of litter for quite some time.

You can use any litter you want. The clumping litter works best for the 'roll' cleaning. You never have to scoop or change liners. Its definitely the best litter box we've ever used. We never liked clumping litter before this product, but it is best to use once the kitten is old enough.

Yes, if you don't use clumping litter it will not allow the waste to separate from the clean litter because the clean litter has to be able to fall through the grate while the clumps make their way to the pull out tray.

You are correct - regular cat litter will cause problems in a kitten, They explore everything with their mouths. A 3 month old kitten would be alright with Omega Paw. Any younger and I would suggest a cat box with pine or wheat litter. Yes you should use clumping litter with this product. if you didn't, it would defeat the purpose. Hope this helps.

I don't think this system is designed to work with regular litter as it states to use only "clumping" litter. The reason is the slide out disposal tray. There are some clumping litters out there safe for kittens. Ask your vet which they would recommend.

No, it is not heavy. You do not lift the box, you roll it. I didn't believe the directions at first and added more than one inch of litter, but really, one inch of litter is more than enough. Also, I couldn't figure out at first how to add more litter without laying it on its back and dumping it in, which left bits of litter on the floor that seeped through the crack between the top and bottom. Then it hit me...Before I would roll it back to level the litter, I would add about an inch to the pull-out bin. It works like a charm.

The box itself isn't heavy. The weight of the box and using it will depend on how much litter you put in it and how often you clean it. If you don't clean the box very often, it does become heavy to roll over. But if you clean it everyday, it's very easy to use.

it is the same weight as any box really- not very heavy but you need to be able to roll the thing over all the way and back- this does not take a huge amount of space- & the way the stuff quickly all lands in the drawer at one time makes your leaning over a litter box time greatly reduced.

Question

Which clumping litter works best in the Omega Paw

Hi I recently adopted a cat and was given the omega paw litter box with Fresh Step extreme odor control litter. It works great and absolutelly no odor whatsoever. The only thing is the smell of the litter is a bit strong and it stays on my cat after he leaves the box. I was wondering if anyone else uses a different type of clumping litter that isnt so strong smelling but works just as well as far as eliminating odors. I was wondering if the unscented clumping litter would work as well?? Thank you

I used to use Fresh Step, but I hated the dust and the smell was so strong I also noticed it on my cats. I decided to try a different brand when I set up my new Omega Paw boxes, and I purchased Tidy Cats. I haven't smelled anything since switching. No odor, no dust, no chemical/perfume smell at all. I'm sure it's helping that the kitty litter is now cleaned out twice a day, because it takes so little time to do it. But I was afraid to use Fresh Step because I thought the rolling would create that dust storm every time, which I hated. No problem at all using Tidy Cats and the Omega Paw rolling boxes!

I am a new cat owner and have been in the "trial and error" stage of this relationship. At first I thought you must have a litter that has deodorizers in it to mask any odor. I first tried Tidy Cat clumping and it worked ok. Then I switched to Scoop Away because two of my friends recommended it. Clumps much better than the Tidy Cat. However, I could not stand the chemical smell ( from either brand) on Spencer. I recently switched to the Scoop Away, Super Clump, unscented and it is great! No odor from the box or on my guy.

If you roll the litter box and some clumps stick to the bottom or the side, try tapping (somewhat hard) on the bottom of the box while its on its side. You will hear the clumps come off and fall into the cup. That worked really good for me. I have only had one stubborn clump and I used a baby wipe to get it out - but - it was a very fresh clump so I think if I waited a few minutes it wouldn't have been an issue.

I also think you have to keep the perfect amount of litter in the box at all times. Not too much so it overflows in the grate/sifter but enough so the cats "business" is covered and soaked up with the litter. I've only have this for a week - it's trial and error but I LOVE it!

I have two kittens (3 months old) and if I forget to roll it every other day there will be too many clumps for the tray to handle on the first roll. It's actually very simple to roll it (I have a VERY bad back so this was what sold me) so if your cat goes a lot you should do it every day, maybe even twice a day. The actual size of the area where the litter sits is smaller than a "regular" litter box. The main feature about this litter box is the fact that it's so easy to clean.

No, I disinfect mine about once a month if I see stuff clinging to the vents and litter box floor. I find if I roll it once a day that doesn't happen as much. I take it outside, spray it with a vinegar and wayeer solution and rince off with the hose and air dry.

I use a small sized crystal litter that doesn't contain clay. I use 1/12" and change every two weeks. The box is designed with a material that helps keep waste from sticking so definetly less cleaning out. I also change my box twice a day with two cats but because it's so easy, no bending or digging with the scoop, it takes less than a minute. You will be amazed at the ease of emptying this box, the frequency involved in cleaning the inside will be so much less than any other litter box. You won't regret the purchase, trust me!

Unless you want to have to take it apart to clean out huge clumps, yes. But it only takes 15 seconds to roll it over and clean it out, so I would strongly recommend doing it daily. I used to HATE cleaning out our box just doing it once a week... Now it's no big deal to do it every single day :)

You rarely have to clean out the interior of the box - only if something gets stuck to it or if there are very small particles that need removing. It depends on how often it's used as to how often you have to roll it and remove the used litter. I have three cats and can go a couple of days easily.

It requires the same amount of cleaning as any litter box and you cannot
use litter box liners if that's what you are used to. Its charm is to preserve
the unclumped litter from being thrown away so you can resue it the next time and only add fresh to bring it back to full.

Question

What happens with large clumps of litter?

Sometimes my cat's urine clumps are quite large. Do they naturally break up and fall through, is the slot big enough for them to pass, or would it be necessary to manually remove them?.

The clumps do not pass through the slots. The clean litter is what passes through the slots and is sifted and separated out. The remaining clumps then roll over the sifter and into the collection tray. Hope this helps!

Hi anita8jp. I have switched to small sized crystal litter. There is no clay in this litter so it doesn't create the huge urine clumps. You have to replace the litter every two weeks for two cats, once a month for one, but as you only use 1 1/2" of litter at a time it is an inexpensive alternative in the end.

Definitely clean out the litter once a day. I had this same problem with our old box (there would literally be a mountain of clumped litter). I clean out this box daily since it takes literally 15 seconds and there's no mess, super easy, and I never run into that problem anymore!

I have a Bengal whose urine clumps are HUGE. The way the box is fashioned, the litter goes over a large open area into the pull-out tray. The clean litter is sifted back through the portion that has the holes in it. It works wonderfully.

When you roll the box during cleaning the large clumps will end up in the
waste removal bin and you throw it away. The screen or filter is to save the clean, unclumped litter from being tossed.

I have not experienced that issue. The box has latches all the way around it to hold the two pieces together except on the end on which it is rolled. As long as all of the latches are securely in place, there should not be any litter that escapes on the end.

Does the hood need to be on all the time?

My cats do not like enclosed litter boxes. Can I run it w/o the top normally, and just put it on to scoop, or would it make it more of a pain than it would be worth?

Thanks!

I think it would be more pain than it's worth.. If you kept the hood off, you'd have to securely attach it every time you needed to "scoop" the box. The clips that hold the top to the bottom seem kind of fragile for that much activity. Just my 2 cents!

I wouldn't think you'd need the hood on all of the time. It will stay together just fine without it. Then when you're ready to roll it (clean), you would put the hood on and slide in the waste tray and clean away.

Occasionally, the grate panel can become loose from the bottom tray.

It is wise to remove the top cover panel completely and inspect the cleanliness and fit of the grate panel before adding more kitty litter.

Occasionally, you will need to roll the bottom tray the so all litter is nut under the grate panel and remove and re-install the grate panel to make sure that normal flex has not dislodged the grate panel from its keepers.

You should also ensure that all of the locks for the top cover tray are always locked completely before doing a cleaning routine.

The only thing that would allow the litter to pass into the tray would be if the solid part of the grate has come loose from the rim of the box. Try snapping it back or gluing it to the rim of the box. I cant see a reason for ever having to remove the grate. Hope that helps! If you find it something else, let us know so we can be prepared for it.

If you have't tried keeping the litterbox sideways when you roll it, maybe that could help. Keep it so that all the "stuff" sits on the grates, then when all of the good litter falls through, continue the roll. Maybe that could help. Good luck.

Omega Paw Roll 'n Clean Litter Box

I recently purchased the above litter box. The first time I used it it worked fine but thereafter every time I rolled it a bunch of littler went into the tray and I had to remove the lid to put it back into the box. When I rolled it back to level it off a lot of the littter stayed in the tray. I didn't have too much litter in the box so that couldn't be it. Please help me! I bought the box as it seemed to be a good deal but now I am not so sure. Thank you.

I'm not sure why you are having this problem, I haven't had that happen, but the only thing I can think is either the screen isn't installed properly or you are rolling too fast and not giving all the litter a chance to fall through the screen. My guess is check how the screen is installed. All my loose litter just falls thru the screen, I haven't had any land in the tray.

You need to have at least 2 inches of litter in the box. And the key is to roll it slowly so that the clean litter is able to go through the slats and stay in the box. Also, make sure the piece with the slats is locked in place on the bottom of the litter box. "Roll Slowly" LOL
