Toletta Smart Litter Box. One of the most exciting new cat home health products we are aware of. Believe it or not, it is a facial recognition litter box with a built-in scale and app to monitor the health of cats 24/7 alerting owners to any changes that might warrant intervention.

It is currently marketed in Japan and is due to be available in the US in May/June 2019. We have vouchers for sale and to give away so you would be one of the first to receive in this country. $300 value ($250 PRFR donation price)

Great for larger dogs and multiple dog and cat households. $289 value (PRFR donation price $199)
