First Project of the Year Complete!

Posted on Monday, May 13th, 2024

Dave!Coat closet remodel complete.

I needed a place to put the Litter-Robot that was out of the living/dining area and could also be hidden away when company comes over.

I have a cat door I bought to install in the closet door, but I think I'm going to skip it. Jake & Jenny would probably feel safer not being trapped in a small place when they do their business. I'll just leave the door open until company comes over because it doesn't bother me and isn't in the way...

My new closet with room for a litter box in the bottom.

If I do ever end up installing the cat door, the barrier between the Litter-Robot and the coats slides forward and has a soft plastic edge that seals against the door when it's closed in case the cats unload a stinker before the Litter Robot cycles...

Door sweep seal.

It's also removable so I can clean more easily.

Even though I raised the hanger bar quite a lot, I still had room for a small shelf to store baskets for hats and gloves and stuff when I don't need them...

Secret shelf above my coats.

I'm happy with how everything turned out. And the build quality is so much better than what was there. I actually gave a crap about how things looked even though it's just a closet that nobody is going to spend time looking at.

On to the next project.

  1. How do you like the litter robot thingy? As someone still manually doing the scoop of shame in my litter boxes, having a little robot fren to do it for me would be lovely.

      I tried five automated litter boxes. The ONLY one that worked for me was Litter-Robot. Since Jenny will not use a dirty litterbox (especially if Jake has taken a dump in it) I ponied up the ungodly amount of money and bought two of the Version 3s (in case one died while I was gone). They were problematic, but I had an extended warranty and they always fixed the problems. When the warranty ran out, I bought the 4s. They are also problematic but, again, they stand behind their product, so the only thing I lose is time. Currently I’m getting replacement bases sent to me because one will not measure the waste drawer correctly no matter what I do and one has a torque fault that I can’t figure out. To keep the one Litter-Robot with the waste level problem operational, I have a sensor and a smart plug. When a cat is detected in the area, the power is cut then restored 5 minutes later. This forces the unit to cycle, even if it thinks the drawer is full. Crazy. Hopefully they’ve ironed out the bugs and my new units will work better.
