I own the Cat Genie since it first came out and I have upgraded to this system. The hood keeps everything out of site and the box never smells. My 2 cats are so spoiled that they would never use a used box till it is clean again! I have tried many other cat boxes with clay litter and this is far and beyond the best product made. No clumping, no mess and no clean up! Litter is always clean and sanitized. The company is great as well with product replacements (cartridge and pellets) sent out by the next day to get to the house in a week! Customer service is fantastic to walking you through the steps to help you with any issues even if you have to leave a call back number there is always a call back with a nice person to help in real terms!
I recommend this product for everyone with a cat box. Now even pregnant woman can have cats and keep the box clean without harm to their unborn child.
Also anyone with a dog will rest assured that the pellets will pass through a dogs system if it is ingested without any harm done! Great for us animal lovers that had past problems with clumping litter being ingested!
Ferrets go in it as well!
