Update: This has actually turned out better than I imagined so far. It's now June 1 and I have not emptied the cat box since I first filled it with litter. That's almost two months. I normally would have emptied the box 8 times since then. Cat litter still has that litter smell, not that cat smell! Cat box still scoops cleanly. A marvel!
Update: It's now June 27. Almost 3 months since I cleaned out the cat box. Still smells great! A miracle. I used to empty the box and wash and scrub it every week.
Update: September 8, 2016 I emptied the cat box for the first time in over five months today. The bottom of the litter box was clean when I emptied the box! I could not smell the box, but I think some cat stuff was under the box. The cat box itself is not a problem, amazingly! You just have to make sure to keep the floor under the box and around the box cleaned and mopped occasionally. Occasionally wash the bottom of the box if nasty stuff finds its way to that area. I'm sooo glad I don't have to change the box weekly, monthly or even quarterly!!! I do expect to buy a new cat litter box the moment I detect stuff beginning to adhere to the bottom.

If cleaning the cat litter box is a problem for you, the nine minutes you spend watching this video may save you years of costly, ineffective, nasty cat box management!
Amazing cat litter box discovery! I save a lot of time and money, toil, tears and blood every week!
I apologize for the length of the video, but this was a forty-year problem for me and I enjoyed over-much sharing my secret with you.
My wife giggled at some this video's imperfections. However, if I try to edit this I may never post, so I'm sending it into the world as it is.
I clearly provide the solution to the problem of how to keep a clean litter box (and much more), so hopefully this will be appreciated by people with similar issues.
The final solution. Both were purchased at Walmart:
Pet Champion X-Large Cat Litter Pan cost $5.92
Scoop Away Extra Strength scented 38 lb. cost $12.13
Follow Scoop Away simple directions and trust!
Replace cat litter pan every 6 months, every year, or as needed so you do not have to wash the litter pan out to clean it! It should just swipe clean with the cat pan scoop. This is not a high expense item!
Using old cat litter boxes was the main cause of all my problems. This was a foolish economy since it meant I spent every Saturday morning for years dumping 20 pounds of cat litter into the garbage and hosing out the cat box!
