I was afraid to spend this much money on a litter box because it sounded too good to be true. I've tried all kinds of other 'convenient' litter boxes and all have been a waste of time, effort and money. CatGenie is absolutely the exception! It is WONDERFUL! I live in a home with three cats and with the CatGenie box you don't smell cat litter when you walk in. I love cats but have always hated buying and lugging litter into the home and then all that scooping and dragging used litter back out of the home all the while fighting the dust and smell. CatGenie is ingenious, worth every penny and is loved by my cats as much as by me! I highly recommend it!
