It’s true to say that having pets around the home is such a wonderful, comforting experience, but there’s no doubt about it, they like to make a mess! It can often be frustrating having a pet that leaves lots of mess around the house and one of the biggest culprits of this are cats and their litter trays.
Yes, the good old trusty litter that is supposed to stay in the tray, but conveniently ends up ingrained in carpets, scattered across wooden floors, and stuck to the bottom of your feet! Cat litter gets everywhere and you will often find yourself feeling like you spend your whole time vacuuming up after them.
But what if the vacuum had a mind of its own? What if it could do the job for you when you weren’t even at home? What if you could put your feet up in front of the TV whilst the vacuum takes the strain? Well, we bring to you: the Roomba!

2. iRobot Roomba 675
The iRobot was one of the very first Roomba’s on the market and is probably the best known out of these all these types of devices.
The advanced sensors ensure for adaptive navigation ensuring that every inch of your flooring is cleaned even underneath the furniture. With Alexa compatibility and long run time, this is still one of the best Roomba’s around.

Since this Roomba comes as a complete kit, as expected the cost of this product is a little higher than some of the others on our list. We still think this is great value for money and there are many less advanced vacuums on the market for a much higher price.
We love that this full kits provide multiple brush options for clean a variety of floor surfaces plus Alexa compatibility for ultimate convenience.
3. GOOVI 1600PA
The Goovi 1600PA is a modern-looking Roomba with a sleek and stylish design. It is almost a standout piece in its own right thanks to its super glossy finish and smart appearance.
As well as looking great it provides the ultimate clean on any type of flooring and is said to be particularly good at digging deep and picking up hard to get mess such as cat litter.
Efficient And Intelligent
We would consider this Roomba to be not only efficient but also super intelligent. It is inevitable that after a long clean this device will need recharging.
This clever little device seems to know exactly when the battery is running low and will make its own way back to the unit to start recharging. The designers of this Roomba seem to have thought of everything.
Drop Sensor Technology
If you live in a house with stairs there is always the worry that if a Roomba gets too close to the edge of the stairs it will drop off the edge and potentially get damaged. The designers at Goovi have created sensors on this Roomba that automatically detects when it is too close to the edge or about to fall over a ledge. This is one intelligent Roomba for sure!
- Automatically returns to charging unit when the battery is low
- Various cleaning modes depending on the type of mess you need to clean
- A quiet clean
- Super slim design that fits under most furniture
Value For Money
The Goovi 1600PA is an amazing value for money product. It is actually one of the cheapest on our list of Roomba’s and when you look at the sleek design and amazing functionality it is hard to believe that the price is so reasonable on this product. This one definitely gets thumbs up from us in terms of cost vs quality.
4. ILIFE V3s Pro
The ILIFE V3s Pro is a standout design that has been specifically made for pet owners in mind. This think design fits under most furniture and has an easy to use remote control and 3 cleaning modes including an auto clean.
With a run time of 90-100 minutes per charge and an obstacle dropping sensor, we can see why so many customers rave about this product.
It’s always great when you can find a device that does the job for you, but highly frustrating when the maintenance and general upkeep of that device is time-consuming.
The ILIFE V3s Pro has been designed with an easy to clean system that will have you up and running again in no time. Simply empty the dustbin and clean the filter ensuring the filter is replaced every month. It’s as easy as that!
The ILIFE V3s Pro has been specially designed with pet owners at the forefront of their minds. They have eliminated the need for roller brushes on this device which can be particularly troublesome for users looking to pick up lots of pet hair.
Roller brushes tend to get hair tangled and caught in the bristles which can be frustrating and difficult to clean. This is a win-win for pet owners!
- Easy to clean
- Roller brush free to stop pet-hair getting tangled in the bristles
- Self-charging with a long run time of 90-100 mins

Value For Money
The ILIFE V3s Pro is great value for money and comes at a price that we would consider to suit most budgets. This isn’t the cheapest nor is it the most expensive on the market and we like to think this is those with a mid-range budget that are looking for excellent value at a reasonable price.
5. Ecovacs DEEBOT 500
Lastly and certainly not least we have the Ecovacs DEEBOT 500 Roomba. This is a neat little device that was definitely worthy of our top 5 spot.
This Roomba comes with all the basic features that the rest the products in our list contain, but with some added little extras that may be particularly helpful for those looking for longer cleans or those living in bigger homes.
We love that the Ecovacs DEEBOT 500 has a longer run time than most of the Roomba’s we have seen. Sometimes you just need to give your home a really good long clean and it can be frustrating if your Roomba keeps running out of charge too quickly. This device will provide you with 110 minutes of charge that should be enough time to cater to most customers’ needs.
The larger dustbin on this Roomba is also particularly helpful for those that are looking to do a larger clean. If you live in a particularly big home then it is inevitable that your clean will pick up way more dirt, dust, hair, and mess than a much smaller home would.
The large dustbin on this device should be enough to cater for messes in any size home without the need to keep emptying out the bin.
- A long run time of 110 mins for the ultimate cleaning experience
- Made with a large dustbin to be able to cope with large homes
- Durable protective bumpers to avid damage and scratches
- Low operating noise level for a quieter life
Value For Money
Although we really like this Roomba it is true to say it is much more expensive than most of the other Roomba’s on our list. It has great functionality with some great features but would consider this at the higher end of the scale in terms of cost. We are not sure why this device is more expensive, but we think it is worth the extra cost if you live in a particularly large home and need the addition of a larger bin and longer run time.
