I absolutely cannot live without the Cat Genie! I have had mine for several years now. I need to purchase another one simply because the hard water in my house has built up and caused it to not run right. But I will NEVER EVER go back to a traditional litter box again! My cats also love it because they get to go in a clean box every time.Plus I have a baby and it is so much more sanitary for her. Its a good deal for all of us.
