    Ongoing Maintenance Empty the Waste Drawer when indicated by the Light Bar flashing blue on the Control Panel. How often you will need to empty the Waste Drawer depends on the number and size of your cats. For two average-sized cats, twice per week is typical. For a single cat, once per week is usually sufficient.

    Clean Cycle After your cat leaves the Globe, the Litter-Robot automatically performs a Clean cycle. The sifting system separates the clumps from the clean litter and deposits them into the Waste Drawer below. It will take 2 minutes to complete the Clean Cycle. You can also press the Cycle button to start a Clean cycle.

  • Page 33 Reinstalling the Globe Place the Globe on the Base in the approximate Home position. Holding the Globe by the handle and sliding it back into the Base will align it approximately in the Home position. Ensure the back of the Globe is sitting flush in the rear bearing pocket and the gear track is engaged to the motor pinion.
  • Page 34: Frequently Asked Questions

    Frequently Asked Questions Will my cat actually go inside the Globe? Cats are generally curious and will investigate new objects. Cats that are already used to a covered litter box may be quicker to investigate. We recommend that you place the Litter-Robot in the same location as the old litter box. You can leave the old litter box near the Litter-Robot for a short time.
  • Page 35 What happens if my cat tries to enter the Globe while it is rotating? The Litter-Robot Cat Sensing system will detect your cat before they enter the Globe and the motor will stop. Once your cat leaves the Globe, the Litter-Robot will wait 15 seconds before attempting to resume the cycle.
  • Page 36 How much litter do I put in the Litter-Robot? Fill the Globe with approximately 8-10 pounds of litter, until it meets the raised MAX Fill Line on the Flexible Globe Liner when the litter is spread flat. If there is too much litter in the Globe, it will be expelled into the Waste Drawer during the first few cycles.
  • Page 37: In-Home Trial

    If you or your cat are not satisfied with your Litter-Robot, simply return it for a refund of the purchase price. You only have to pay return shipping. If you purchased your Litter-Robot through a source other than Whisker, you must coordinate the return with that source according to their return policy.
