|Since you are so good about keeping the litter box clean, you may like the Breeze litter system. I have three litter boxes, 3 cats, and two Breeze boxes. The pellets are plastic, when the cats pee, it goes through the pellets, through a grate, and the pee is caught onto a super absorbent pad that you change once a week (I have two cats using one box one I change about every 4-5 days). The pellets don't have to be changed for a month, and you can really go a month before you need to. The Breeze costs about $30, there is a $10 off coupon in the box, Petsmart let me open the box and use the coupon on that purchase. They go on sale from time to time at petsmart too. The pellets cost $8 at Target (cheapest I have found) and the 4 pack of pads about $5. I scoop the poop at least once a day, or right away if I'm home. This is not a litterbox for a lazy person. If you leave the poop in the box, it gets disgusting.
Somtimes it takes a while to transition a cat to this litter box. It took my 10 year old cat a month. But they give you tips on how to do it, and it really works. What I love most about them is there is no litter tracking at all. No pee smell at all, until you go to change the pad, and then, if you have waited to long, you smell it then when you open the tray. I clean out the tray weekly when I change the pad, and once a month I spray out the whole thing and replace the pellets. I actually spend less money on litter, I think, than when I was buying those 35 pound buckets of tidy cat, plus they killed me to lift them. This is much easier.
The only bad thing is, if your cat gets diarrhea, it is gross, and you will have to change the pellets and spray it out, but we have been lucky and only had to do that on occasion. If you have a cat prone to diarrhea though, I would not get this box. My cats seem to prefer this litter box now, because it is so clean. I take the poop right away and there is no big pee clumps they have to stand on. It does not get stuck between their toes. I love this litter box. I do have a third covered litter box that has feline pine, and one of my cats prefers that box. I have used WBCL too, and it is good stuff, but I find it pricey, epecially if you are cleaning the box out a lot and replacing it, it is too expensive.
