Living in PURRadise with Kitty LitterBowl

We’re living in PURRadise! The new Kitty LitterBowl prototype is durable, stable, user-friendly and kitty comfy. Our family couldn’t be happier.

Kitty LitterBowl Prototype 3D Print Complete

We’re pleased to let you know the Kitty LitterBowl Prototype 3D print finished successfully! Our product development engineer will proceed with post processing the parts, which includes sanding rough areas, removing support material, and assembling the unit.

Due to the July 4th holiday, we anticipate making a new video by July 15th.

Close to Replacing the Cat Litter Box

Our product engineer ran the first long 3D test print of the new Kitty LitterBowl (cat litter box replacement) prototype. Essentially, they tested the top portion of KLB, which was one of the weak points on the previous prototype.

These pictures of the current print compared to the previous prototype give us an idea of what the surface finish is like. Although the new prototype has wall thickness that is twice as thick as the previous prototype, the nature of the 3D printing process they’re currently using will still leave it prone to delamination (albeit less prone than the previous prototype).

The product engineer will configure some temperature settings on their new 3D printer to alleviate this issue. We’re excited about their progress and believe we’ll be able to pickup our new prototype soon.

We’re very close to delivering the last cat waste management device you’ll ever need to buy!

Kitty LitterBowl Prototype

Our fans have been growing more and more impatient about the Kitty LitterBowl prototype. We get it – we are just as excited and tired of using a cat litter box.

Line-X ran a coating test and determined it would not be possible to coat our prototype due to the 3D printed plastic construction. So, Design Launchers agreed to redesign and 3D print a more durable prototype.

Instead of sending the project out to a contractor again, they decided to purchase a 3D printer for their office. They have been working through glitches and proper settings over the past few months.

We hope to post photos and video of our new prototype in May!

“Cool product!” ~ @thenomadicpursuit

“Where do you get this from, and do you use it when you’re out on the road? Possible buying an RV to live in and would love to ask some questions about that and this “kitty toilet”. ~ @sweetbabysteven

“Nice. We’ve always wondered about training cats to use the toilet. This is a good alternative!” ~ @exploringthelocallife

“Love this!” ~ Tina Kashlak Nicolai

“Wow – Like it!” ~ @travelingwithjp

Desperately Missing KLB Prototype

Our 3D printed Kitty LitterBowl prototype is currently at Line-X getting sprayed with a protective coating. And, can we just say… UGH!!!!

Kitty LitterBowl on Toilet

We noticed the epoxy that was applied to Kitty LitterBowl’s underside after printing was peeling off and we didn’t want to take any chances of further damage. We researched coatings for plastic and found Line-X, a coating well-known for truck beds. Turns out their coating can be applied to almost anything.

BONUS information… the coating can also be applied to the underside of RVs, ideal for resisting rocks, debris and UV damage. We didn’t research pricing, but we’re making a mental note for when we buy our motorhome!

Line-X Coating for Kitty LitterBowl Prototype

This is all wonderful news, except we have to use a smelly, messy cat litter box until the Kitty LitterBowl prototype is returned. We really can’t express the degree to which we miss it.

Kitty LitterBowl Replaces Cat Litter Boxes and Cat Toilet Training

We’ve been using the Kitty LitterBowl prototype for one week and couldn’t be happier; no lingering bad odor, no cat litter mess on the floor, no wasted cat litter, no time-consuming cleanup, and no working around a bulky cat litter box that sits on the floor! And, the cats are happy too.

Kitty LitterBowl on Toilet

Within four days, both cats were using Kitty LitterBowl on the toilet. Talk about hassle free training!

Our recent activities include creating brochures, making a demo video, developing a GoFundMe page, and entering invention contests on Edison Nation. Next on our to-do list is mailing letters and brochures to well-known environmentalists and celebrities to promote our GoFundMe page for start-up costs.

 

Please spread the word to friends and family members who may want to donate – Every little bit helps!

We’re looking forward to improving the lives of cats and their owners, as well as the environment. Stay tuned for PAW-esome updates!

Kitty LitterBowl CAD Drawings & Paper Mache Model

The CAD drawings for my new pet product Kitty LitterBowl are coming along nicely! Cat litter boxes will soon have strong competition.

We improved upon the sliding door mechanism so cat owners can easily dispose of cat waste without removing Kitty LitterBowl from the toilet.

Kitty LitterBowl CAD Drawing Update

Next on the product development engineer’s priority list is creating a 3D paper mache model that’s an accurate representation of Kitty LitterBowl’s size and shape in order to test it on various toilets. I expect to receive photos of the paper mache testing process next week.
