I would reccommend this machine to any cat lover. I got one machine for 3 cats and the cats are very happy with it. The price is affordable if you go with the vic club you only pay 150.00 to start. It is alot to start but in the long run you are saving money. We pay 39 a month for the cat genie and they send us supplies so we dont have to worry about ordering anything for the machine. I would reccomend you get the fresh scent cartiage. The no scent you can smell the cats waste really bad when it cleans. The fresh scent one you cant. Only occasionally the machine will not clean chucks of cat waste but for the most part it cleans it perfectly all I have to do is wipe it down.
