Reducing Infectious Agents in Cat Feces.

catselfcleaninCat feces contain several infectious agents such as the Toxoplasma gondii parasite which can cause toxoplasmosis. People with strong immune symptoms may never experience any of the symptoms associated with toxoplasmosis. However, women that are pregnant, children and those who suffer from immunodeficiencies (such as HIV infection)are at an increased risk for this disease. For those who are at high risk, symptoms can be severe and may include brain, eye or organ damage. E. coli infection is another risk associated with cat feces. While most strains of E. coli are harmless, some can cause serious illness, especially in children under five.

With all of this said, a self cleaning litter box can reduce the risk of parasitic infection associated with cat feces. They also make cleaning litter boxes and waste disposal easier and more convenient than ever before.  They work very well with all types of litter including litter made with natural ingredients such as wheat and corn and also work well with clumping litter. Self cleaning litter boxes can really help to reduce infectious waste because they are cleaning consistently. The little genie waste disposal system is a great way to keep everything sanitary and smelling great!
