I'd been wanting to buy the CatGenie for a while, but the price scared my husband and I away. When I got pregnant, my husband really didn't want to scoop the cat box. We saved and ordered the CatGenie. When our friends with cats wince at how much we paid for the cat box, we just say "No, no, no. Best thing we've ever bought. We don't regret a penny spent".
We have it set up in the garage, hooked up to our laundry. The worst part about the clean up is sweeping the Washable Granules the cat kicks out (which she did with the old box anyways). The box just takes care of itself. An unexpected perk is that the cleaning cycle makes our garage smell amazing.
