This month we’re giving away a product that a lot of readers have asked about. It’s a high-tech litter box called the Odor Grabber. This unique covered litter box has a built-in air purifier made by Bionaire, a company that specializes in air purifiers for a variety of products. I was so excited when I first saw this invention at a pet product expo a couple of years ago, so we’ve been testing one out to see if it’s really as good as it sounds, and so far it is!
The Odor Grabber plugs in to a wall outlet and runs very quietly. I won’t lie, it’s not silent, it makes a soft noise, like white noise. According to the manufacturer, it uses a very low level of energy. The filter purifies the air inside the litter box, preventing odors outside the box as well. There is a filter that needs to be replaced periodically and an indicator on the top of the box telling you when it’s time to change the filter.
I know a lot of people have issues with using covered litter boxes, so I want to let you know that the Odor Grabber has a roll-top lid (the clear plastic part on the front) which can be raised to make it more open. This will reduce the effectiveness of the air purifier somewhat, but it gives larger kitties a little more room. The box is really quite large (17.5″ W x 26.5″ L x 19″ H) and I think the contoured shape is very sleek.
My favorite thing (I always get excited about this!) is the holster on the back of the box where you store the matching scoop. The holster is even ventilated onto the box so any odors on the scoop are also removed.
Here are some photos of the Odor Grabber in use at Peter’s house. That’s Carmen checking it out. It took them about a week to get used to it, but everyone is using it now without a problem. The manual suggests that you leave it unplugged at first until the cats start using the new box, then plug it in and turn on the filter. The Odor Grabber can be used with any type of cat litter.
FIVE WINNERS! EXTRA CHANCE TO WIN!
Winners must pay shipping this time
This month will be a little different. Usually I have the giveaway sponsor send the prizes directly to the winners, however, Bionaire shipped all the litter boxes to me so I will have to send them to the winners. Shipping costs will probably be $25 to $35 per unit. I’ll pick the winners at the end of the month and send an email to get their addresses. Then I’ll let each winner know how much the shipping will be and will send a PayPal invoice. If you are a winner and decide that you do not want to pay the shipping, I’ll go ahead and pick another winner. I hope that works for everyone!
