When the self cleaning litter box first came to the market there were many concerns regarding more then one cat using the same box, or cats not accepting it the same way they did their old box. While there are still some finicky cats the majority (including mine) have adopted to it quite well. The fear with multiple cats using the box is gone now as well. Once a cat uses the box a 10 minute timer is set before it cycles, if another cat re-enters the box that timer resets again so there is no chance of a cat being harmed.
