Cat litter is one of the major necessities for a cat owner other than cat food. A litter box is used as a urine and feces collection box for cats. Cats can roam freely at home but cannot always go out to relieve themselves. Many cat owners prefer not to let their cats outside the house due to human hostility, adverse weather, and other reasons. Hence, usage of a cat litter box ensures the safety of their cats.

Moreover, self-cleaning cat litter helps to maintain cat hygiene despite time constraints of the owner of the cat.
