My 10 month old kitty developed kidney stones and had a very hard time using the litter box. This change in his normal routine left us cleaning cat pee from everywhere in the house. I did some research and found that many cats who experience this issue will not use their normal litter box anymore because they correlate it with the pain they are experiencing. That was the end of the traditional litter box in our house. I purchased the Cat Genie hoping that my cat would see a clean and sparkly new little box, and use it instead of the carpet.
It worked! He was initially hesitant, but since he wasn't using the old cat box anyway, I just got rid of it and left him with only the Cat Genie. He used it on the first day, and hasn't stopped using it since. He prefers a very clean box, so I keep it set on Cat Auto and we have not had any issues. Even after getting another kitten, both cats use the box without any problems. They love to sit and watch the Genie clean itself, it is like they are watching t.v.
If you are hesitant to buy this product because of the price, don't be! This product will literally change your life. No more scooping poop, and smelling cat litter EVER AGAIN!
