A monitor and app that alert you to changes in your cat’s weight and behavior.

The Petivity Smart Litter Box Monitor system consists of a smart device and connected app that transform data about your cat’s litterbox behavior into insights about their well-being. The system identifies behavior and weight changes that may be associated with a health condition requiring veterinary diagnosis like UTI, kidney disease, diabetes, hyperthyroidism and obesity.

Here’s how it works:

Tracks: Place a monitor under each litter box. Sensors gather precise data on each cat’s weight and important litter box habits.
Detects: Using AI developed by pet and data experts, Petivity detects meaningful changes that may indicate weight issues or health conditions requiring veterinary diagnosis.
Alerts: Alerts are sent directly to your phone via the Petivity mobile app when changes might be cause for concern so you can be proactive in seeking veterinary care.

Get the clarity, confidence and peace of mind to know you’re doing what’s best for your cat.
• Designed with Purina veterinarians, behaviorists and data scientists.
• Measures frequency, time of day, waste type and cat’s weight to create a unique “paw print” for each cat.
• Sends alerts when changes may require your attention or a visit to the vet.
• Works with multiple cats simultaneously, identifying and tracking each cat’s behavior. No tracking collar is required.
• Smart enough to automatically recalibrate when litter is changed or scooped.

Amazing Device & Data for Pets

This device and the companion app are amazing. The device is very simple to install and pair with the app. The app is also very simple, requiring only an AppleID and then quick pairing with the device.

To get this working, you must categorize each event by cat (it shows you the weight of the cat, so this is actually really easy to do) for 8-ish events and then after that it will auto-categorize the cats (“learn each pet”). That’s all you have to do! From there it tracks and categorizes whether it was #1, #2, or nothing - you never have to do this.

We tested/verified the type of visit and cat visit using a Ring camera over a week - we were unable to find an event that was miscategorized by cat or by activity type. (3 cats, 3 visits each per day, 1 week = 42 events).

The app is basic, but does exactly what you want: there’s weight trending by cat, activity history by cat, and an events timeline (which also says which box if you have multiple). I’ve got absolutely no complaints about this product and really hope other cat parents will adopt it.

If you’re into quantified cats, I also highly recommend the SurePet microchip feeding system & cat door. With SurePet and Petivity, you have a full 360-degree view of your cat.


Perfect for getting to know a new kitty

I’m a first time cat mom, recently took in a foster kitty. The Petivity device has been incredibly helpful as we get to know her, including ensuring normal (albeit overnight) potty behaviors during her initial acclimation stress (hiding all day), and again later during her recovery from her spay surgery. I also can track her weight changes, helping me to calibrate the right portions of food to maintain a healthy weight. Thanks, Petivity, for helping us through this transition!

Developer Response ,

Congratulations on your newest addition, and we’re thrilled you chose Petivity to help proactively manage your kitty’s health and well-being. While transitioning can be challenging, we’re happy to hear Petivity has been your partner in this journey helping you learn more about her litter box behaviors and track her weight. Welcome to the Petivity family! – Your Petivity Team

Mostly accurate life saver

I’ve had 3 of these for under 2 weeks for my 2 cats. I have a cat with cystitis and this let us get a handle on when he is going and we took him the vet after multiple days of not urinating to intervene for a serious medical issue.

It is mostly accurate after the training. I use a security camera so I can be sure it is logging the correct cat. It entirely missed one cat’s urination without even showing an “entered” event and there is no way to manually add an event. It also mistakenly marked a single visit with urination and defection as only urination, but that is an understandable difficult situation.

The weight recorded is sometimes wildly inaccurate showing my 16 pound cat weighing 4 or 10 pounds. I have leveled them and followed all the setup directions.

The only options are sign in with google or apple, but creating an account would be preferred. There is no way to share the login with a family member.

It would be better if it would provide insight into long times spent in the litter box indicative of straining. It would also be good to see notice of “enterered” events where the cat gives up and leaves without using the box, as opposed to just checking out the boxes and then deciding right after to use a different box.
