Cat owners -- and the rest of us -- have long dreamed of the day when litter boxes and their attendant nastiness and upkeep are relics of a more primitive time. The 1950s. Handling cat waste can lead to toxoplasmosis gondii transmission, and nobody wants that. Also, cat litter is neither biodegradable nor environmentally sound. But do our feline friends appreciate the trouble it takes to clean up after them? Of course not, they're just cats.
Behold the CatGenie 120 cat box, touted as the world's only self-washing/flushing cat box! It cleans like an appliance and looks and flushes like a toilet. This automatic, programmable box is litter-free, using only trademarked, permanent Washable Granules which are dust-free, biodegradable, septic safe, and never need changing. While the PetSafe Simply Clean® Automatic Litter Box and the Litter Robot Bubble are good products with user ratings to match, the CatGenie is simply a different breed of a different litter.
The CatGenie 120 works by first draining liquids through the SaniSolution. Solids get scooped up and dumped into the hopper where they are liquified, then flushed through a hose which is hooked over the human's toilet or laundry drain. The SaniSolution is mixed with fresh water which then washes the granules and bowl of the CatGenie. Along with some swirling action, which cats appear to find endlessly fascinating, a slotted scooper washes and scrubs the bowl. Lastly, a blower dries the granules and the mini cat toilet is ready for action. This process takes about 30 minutes and can run automatically up to 4 times a day for incontinent kitties.
The CatGenie comes with 1 SaniSolution cartridge that should last up to 4 months for a single cat, 1 box of Washable Granules, and T-adapters. The cat will no doubt enjoy playing with its little toilet box but not to worry, if Felix eats the granules, they'll just go right through him and the cycle starts again. Circle of life…
This is a very good buy to minimize to almost zero any of your intervention related to the cat litter.
This product was very easy to install, operate and troubleshoot.
The training guide def. helped. The bowl is about 2/3 of my previous non-auto one and my older cat is fat and quite hard for him to sit comfortable.
Installed in guest bath, very easily. Only issue is electrical cord should be much longer to avoid extension cord use when installing in a moderately sized bathroom.
Fresh scent is the cartridge that comes with the unit, which was very pleasant once the Genie had reached the soap step.
I love this product! I have three cats and they all use one CatGenie. It is great not to smell a stinky cat box, or change one anymore!
No cleaning, very limited odor as it cleans shortly after the cats have done their thing. Absolutely fantastic!
The cat genie will I have one and it works great, I bought this unit 4 years ago and place it on number 6 setting and strictly hot water from the washer outlet ever sense.
