I bought this catgenie in 2012, and it's still going strong. My cats absolutely love it and I love not having to clean a gross litterbox every day. I have only had to tear it apart completely three times in the last 4 years to fix it, and all 3 times was because my cats had dragged something into the box and clogged it (a sock, a toy, and once an entire roll of toilet paper (!?)).
Love this product, love this company!
