I was a little skeptical about the Cat Genie at first. To be totally honest I was never a pet person. But I know how rewarding it can be to children and I would not want to deprive anything from my children. At first I wanted nothing to do with a kitten, the first 3 weeks was tough since we had a regular litter box. I was getting ready to come up with an outdoor access to a litter box to keep the smell out of my home. After reviewing the Cat Genie and discussing it with the wife we decided to give it a try. I have to say this was the best investment next to a car, flat screen tv, and automatic coffee maker. My wife is thrilled that she doesn’t have to haul a 40 lb box of litter home and having to clean the litter box every morning. Like the rotisserie chicken oven… you “set it and forget it”. (not literally, you have to clean the outside and maybe the inside every month). But our house is not full of the foul cat poop smell and no more scooping and hauling of the litter. I would give the Cat Genie 100 out of 100….5 stars out of 5 stars. The VIC club makes it easy to afford and try out. Not to mention their 90 day money back guarantee and 2 year warranty. This was a no brainier, you lose nothing to try it out.
