I have had my cat genie for about a month now and it is the best investment I have made in a long time, I was afraid my cat would be afraid of it at first but he had no issues with it. He actually likes to watch the cleaning process and he loves the hot air fan. He just rests his head on the edge of the genie and just about fall asleep. This is my first cat because I was so against having a littler box. The cat genie is perfect for me and my kitty!
