My husband and I were looking to find a better way to deal with the cat box and the "lovely" smell. When we found the Cat Genie website, we thought it was to good to be true. We did a ton of research and lots of talking it over and, when we finally ordered and received one, we fell in love with it. We don't have to worry about cleaning the cat box anymore. The most we have to do is scoop the tiny pieces that may be missed by the scoop but that doesn't happen very often at all. I've done it once or twice and had my Genie for almost a year. It works great and has saved us the expenses of buying the litter and the bags and all the other little tools needed for a normal cat box. One large investment and all of us, even the cat, are very happy. The cat thinks it is his own personal show when his box starts cleaning itself. He is frequently caught in the bathroom watching it do all the hard work!!!
