We are a three cat family. We have one bad cat. The bad cat is the cat that likes to tag clean clothes hampers and the like if the box is dirty. We were (I can now say were) a family with three litter boxes in our home. There was a grossness factor there that I don't want to share, but if you are reading this, I will safely assume that you have been in those shoes also and looking for a solution.
I was embarrassed and, frankly, grossed out to think that there was cat poo in my house. We had two regular litter boxes and one huge one that automatically scooped. It even sat on a table where the soiled litter fell through the table and into the trash. I'm telling you, I tried it all. I tried regular litter, scoopable litter, crystal litter, corn, trees, pellets, newspaper beads, you name it. Nothing solved my problem... until now.
We opted to put the Cat Genie with side walls in our laundry room. The waste goes out with the wash water. It is even smaller than the litter box and table combo. No more poo in my house! We set it on cat activation (#4) for the cycle to run 30 minutes after a cat uses it. I am amazed at how clean it is. The product seems sturdy and well made too. It is also very easy to assemble. I did it by myself. I have and will continue to recommend this to my other cat loving friends.
If I could come up with a remedy for litter granule tracking, I wouldn't have to add a con to the review. As with all those other litters, the litter granules get stuck between little cat toes and get tracked. I have a few litter catching rugs, but they still get tracked. They are non-absorbent and have been washed. I don't feel as if they are dirty like the other litters, but it is annoying to still have to sweep them up. This little fact is worth mentioning, but not enough to keep me from loving the Cat Genie.
