I had a CatGenie for quite some time. I was cat-less for a period of time, and foolishly gave the CatGenie to a friend. Well, I’m a cat-dad again, and just got my new CatGenie. She watched me set it up, and sat next to it and curiously watched it doing a test clean. Within minutes of it finishing its cycle, she was in it doing her business! With a traditional litter box, she had a tendency to sometimes “aim a little off target”, forcing me to mop the floor more often than I’d like. With the dome...problem solved. For anyone thinking about this but thinking that it’s too expensive...I think this is a great investment and money well spent!!
