Cat Genie is one of those inventions that you really wonder...Is it really necessary to over develop the simplicity of a litter box? Does your kitty need his own $330 cat toilet that self flushes and self washes? Find out how well this electronic, mini toilet works.
Cat Genie Features
Unique self-flushing, self-washing cat box maintains itself. It uses permanent washable granules that never need changing. It's ideal for homes with 2 to 3 cats over 6 months old. Hardware, granules, cleaning solution, and instructions included. Measures 24 by 19 by 21 inches; 2-year limited warranty.
How Does Cat Genie Work?
It's actually quite fun to watch it in action. The electrical scoop sifts out the solids. Then the bowl changes directions so the water can flush the granules in order to clean them. It even disguises any odors by putting out a fresh scent! Assembling the Cat Genie itself is not problem. Although it's a bit more time consuming to connect the Cat Genie plumbing to the toilet.
- It cleans itself and it cut's down on cleaning a regular litter box.
- Smells great when cycle is completed.
- Cat activation feature works great.
- Some cats will not use the Cat Genie even after being introduced to it as explained in the instruction manual.
- Cats track the bits of granule out of the Cat Genie and around the house.
- Some Cat Genie owners mentioned that there's something wrong with the timer and the device starts beeping in error mode for no reason.
- Sometimes it stops in mid cycle while there's wet cat litter in the Cat Genie.
- You'll still need to do some routine cleaning and maintenance.
- It's very loud when it's in the flush and poop grind mode.
- It's quite expensive with a $330 price tag, even if it does cut out some of the work of cleaning a regular litter box.

I thought this was really interesting. It's a video instruction on how to get your cat to use the toilet!
Cat Genie overall, worries me because I've seen many negative comments about it's reliability. Although I can't speak for all Cat Genie owners, it's a lot of money to be spending and not have working or having your cat using. Not to mention the time spent to install the electrical and plumbing. It may not be so affordable for the average cat owner.
