CatGenie Self Washing Self Flushing Cat Box Review
The traditional litter boxes where you have to manually scoop cat waste in order to keep it clean is way too much work, especially if you are a working full-time. Moreover, touching cat waste is unsanitary and leaves a bad smell if not cleaned properly. Automatic litter boxes are litter bowls that constantly clean themselves by rotating the litter bowl. The clumps of litter get separated from the other granules and are safely disposed down the drain. The CatGenie Self-Washing Self-Flushing Cat Box is one of the quite popular automatic litter boxes available, so without any further ado let’s get into the detailed review.
How does the CatGenie work?
The CatGenie is an automatic litter box where you can easily flush the cat waste to the sewage. When you flush the cat litter it gets scooped and removed leaving the litter box dry and fresh again for another use. The litter box cleans the washable granules with water and even sanitizes it.
The CatGenie has 3 different modes –
- Cat Start: In this case, the cleaning starts 10 minutes after the cat uses the litter box.
- Auto Start: In which you can setup 1,2,3 or 4 times a day leaving the litter clean and sanitized.
- Push Start: In this mode, you can flush the litter box anytime manually.
Pros of using the CatGenie
It is good for a household that has 1-2 cats or to a maximum of three cats because it does take a while to clean the granules after flushing to prepare it for another use
Reduces the cat owners workload by doing most if not all of the nasty work for you. If it is in the Push Start mode all you have to do is flush after your cat does its business. In the case you have it on the other modes then you have even less to do!
If you leave your cats at home when you go out then this is a perfect solution since the cat can use the litter box and if it is on the Auto Start then the litter box will clean itself without leaving any bad smell that typically comes from cat waste.
It has the reusable litter like washable granules, so you do not need to replace the litter again and again. The supplies which are included in the box last for about 3 months if you have one cat and 2 months in the case you have to.
You basically need to do nothing apart from setting up the litter box since the process of scooping, flushing waste and washing clean is done automatically in the litter box.
The product comes with a 90-day money back guarantee and a two-year warranty.
Setbacks on Using the CatGenie
If your cat does not have a firm stool then this litter box can really stink. It can stink really bad since the cat poop gets baked in the granules and would make the entire bathroom smell bad. You can use it for not more than 2 cats because of the 30 minutes cleaning cycle that takes place. So, in the case you have 2 cats you need to make sure that they do not have to go to the toilet at the same time The granules do make a mess in your bathroom and you would find it in a few other places of your house especially in places where you least expect them.
Great Product. Don't have to worry about horrible litter box smells with this. Cleans well. A litter louder than I expected but not to bad. The issue I have, is both of my cats have rejected it and now refuse to use it after about two months of use. So, I'm back to the drawing board to figure out how to handle the smells.
2 cats and the only thing I've ever had to do to it was refill the granules and cleaning solution, clean it two to three times a year and you'll pretty much never have a problem with it, great product!
The product works amazing if you have one or two cats since it is much easier to manage and set the litter box settings. This product does have a few setbacks but without any doubt, it does reduce manual effort of cleaning the litter box and takes on the complete responsibility of keeping your home clean.
