My cat is my first cat ever and I had the regular litter box for about 2 years until I made a decision to invest into this product. I have read eviews and feedback from one of my friends that owns one but I have realized that you do need to keep it maintained like any other appliances or it will clog something along the drain line and you will have those issues. Also, run the cat genie more than once a day. With my 1 cat, I run it 2-3 times a day. It is set to be ran twice a day but I usually run it about 3 times a day.
I love the fact that I do not need to worry about the litter box or putting him in a kennel when I go out of town for more than 2 days. He has his automatic feeder, cat genie and water.
I purchased this package and I can promise you that if you are willing to keep your cat for a long time like I am, switch today!!
