Essential Info

Cats have a reputation for being pretty self-sufficient, but any cat owner knows that if you don't maintain the litter box regularly, you can be left with a smelly mess. Eliminate the hassle with a cat box that has no litter to scoop, touch, or change. The CatGenie Self-Cleaning Litter Box connects to your bathroom or laundry room water line to flush cat waste out of your house. It automatically washes, sanitizes and dries your pet's bathroom area to leave it dust, odor, and germ free. The CatGenie PowerFlusher System, which includes the Turbo Hopper, cuts through hairballs and other tough debris, then flushes and drains the waste faster and cleaner than ever before. Ideal for homes with two to three cats over 6 months old, the CatGenie Cat Box is easy to set up and maintains itself.

Cat Activation Choices
CAT 1 - 14 hours active, 10 hours inactive, 10 minute delay after the cat uses it to clean
CAT 2 - 14 hours active, 10 hours inactive, 30 minute delay after the cat uses it to clean (ideal for multiple cats)
CAT 3 - 24 hours active, 10 minute delay after the cat uses it to clean
CAT 4 - 24 hours active, 30 minute delay after the cat uses it to clean (ideal for multiple cats)

The CatGenie is the greenest cat box ever. And, quite possibly, the most economical. The SaniSolution Cartridge is biodegradable and recyclable (unlike cat litter which is neither). It holds 120 washes and when set on Cat Activation provides 240 washes (a year supply of Cartridges takes up less space than 1 jug/1 months supply of cat litter, and uses less plastic).

  • More Info

    1) CatGenie requires a one-time, simple do-it-yourself hook up to cold water and an electric outlet.2) CatGenie uses litter-like Washable Granules to satisfy kitty's need to dig and cover.3) When kitty goes, the liquid drains away from the Granules so only the waste gets flushed.4) When cleaning starts, the GenieHand scoops out the solid waste, which gets liquefied for safe, easy removal.

    5) Fresh water fills the basin and the GenieHand scrubs and scours cat box and Granules.6) The cat-safe SaniSolution decontaminates the Granules and cat box of germs and odors. 7) Liquefied waste and sudsy water get flushed down toilet or drain and safely out of the home. 8) A hot-air blower completely dries the Granules and cat box for kitty's comfort.

    Yes, It's a cat box - and it's litter free
    The CatGenie is a cat-friendly, full-size cat box that uses litter-like, permanent granules. Unlike strip-mined, disposable cat litters, CatGenie Washable Granules never need changing and are 100% dust-free. Any lost granules biodegrade within 9 months so they're safe for septic systems. And no more litter polluting landfills.

    Flushes litter box troubles away for good
    When your kitty goes, liquids drain through the non-absorbing Washable Granules. When the cleaning starts, your CatGenie removes and liquefies the solids for safe and easy disposal down drain or toilet. Flushes all out of your home for good. No nasty clumps or dirty litter to mess with. No heavy bags or containers of contaminated litter to smell or carry.

    It's a litter washer and dryer
    Using water and cat-safe, veterinarian-approved SaniSolution, your CatGenie washes, scrubs, scours and purifies the Washable Granules and cat area clean as new. Then thoroughly dries it all for your cat's comfort.

    All it takes is a touch to start the magic
    You have your choice of three options to start the cleaning.
    1) Preset it to run automatically up to 4 times daily.
    2) Press the start button whenever you wish, or
    3) Set on cat activation.

    Easy Setup
    To get your cat used to the CatGenie, set his old litter box in the new location for a week or so. Be sure to set up the CatGenie in your bathroom or laundry room, since it will need fresh water from a cold water supply line (T-adapters are included), a toilet or laundry drain pipe for cat waste removal, and an electrical outlet for power. All you'll need is a wrench or pliers to connect the system.

    Greener and Cleaner
    If you're like the average cat lover, you spend at least 30 hours a year on litter box chores, from touching, breathing, buying, carrying (in and out) and dealing with that unhealthy litter mess. Two heavy 28 lb buckets of regular cat litter lasts 4 months for one cat, at a cost of $30.00. One SaniSolution Cartridge lasts 3 to 4 months for one cat at a cost of only $22.50. The CatGenie is more environmentally friendly, healthier and more cost effective than the competition.

    LOVE the product. Great service too!
    wish it worked -- ruther glen, VA   3/12/2014
    I really wanted this to work, I've wanted one for a long time. I found it easy to install and it does what it says it will. The problem is in the smell. With a normal litter box when a cat goes it buries it and you have no smell. With this box there's not enough litter to bury it so it smells, then to make it worse when the drying cycle starts it smells like burnt cat poop. I have a large house, over 3000 square feet but I could still smell every time the cat went. The catgenie was on the first floor in the laundry room I was on the second floor I could smell it every time. It was awful.
    JOSH -- st anthony, ID   2/20/2014
    I have two cats & I Love this thing! I haven't touched it since I first set it up two months ago; no more dealing with litter and the associated smells and germs. The only downside is, even with the dome and sidewalls, the plastic granules get tracked all over the house. They tend to get stuck in my cats paws and dislodge all over the place. I've put a mat in front of the entrance which has helped some. That being said, I'd rather clean up tiny pieces of plastic than change cat litter!
    MICHAEL J -- clawson, MI   1/27/2014
    The unit is wonderful and it works perfectly. I have 3 cats and one is using the cat genie already. Can't wait until the other two to start using it.
    Terry Merritt -- tuscaloosa, Alabama   12/7/2013
    My cat refuses to use the cat Genie. I think it is a great invention if only the cat would use it. She will poop right next to it and pee in the floor but refuses to use it. I have tried to trick her by putting regular cat litter while Genie was unplugged to see if she would still use it. I think there is something about the round design that cats do not like. So I recommend making something square or rectangular because cats have never like round litter boxes even if they are using the regular cat litter. So the design needs to be changed to a different shape if all possible because the idea of this is wonderful, just needs to be perfected so that cats will use it as I have tried everything possible. If anyone has any suggestions, please share.
    MAXIE -- norton shores, MI   8/15/2013
    My Husband had to drill a couple holes through the cabinets in the laundry room to get it worked so Wonderful for one week--We have 2 Bengal kittens...we removed the clay litters...but then things went BAD...Felix peed 2x in the hallway(totally clean CatGenie) about 3 feet away...the Cat Genie takes about 20 to 30 minutes to clean(problem) now we have 3 clay litter boxes and the I like the idea of the CatGenie but am not as happy about as I was before! Thought We would just have one CatGenie...not going to return it...but wish it would of been a better experience!
    Matthew C. -- Lakewood Co.   4/3/2013
    I got a cat gene about three years ago and I loved it. A little hard to clean do to all of the nocks and cranny's but easer then an every day scooping with two cats. I rescued my third cat and purchased another to keep up with the mess but my third cat will not use it. I have had to get a litter box special for him and still do not know how I can acclimate him to the gene so I do not have to clean the litter box every day. My genes are still running fine and both now a of two years old. The need maintained like any other machine but I still love them. between the gene and the Roomba I barely need to do any thing but love on my kitty's.
    DESIREE -- pomona, CA   12/1/2012
    this is my third cat genie. I have one downstairs and one upstairs. They are very covenant. I love not having to touch the litter. However they do occasionally clog and that can be smelly and messy and they do sometimes smell if all the waste is not scooped up when the dryer comes on. However over all it is worth having not to deal with daily scooping. If you have the room and water access it is a good investment.
    TERESA -- lakeland, GA   11/16/2012
    This is a wonder! An engineer had to have designed it. From start to finish, the recycled plastic granules/litter first the friction breaks up pcs that fall thru the scoop, scrub clean the sides & scoop. The weight of the litter is calculated perfectly with the force of the dry air, lifting the individual granules, but not blowing them around & out of the bowl. The "fresh scent" leaves a pleasant odor in the house after the cycle completes. This was recommended by my Veternarian after I was diagnosed with a lack of immunities. Eliminating the worry of exposure to toxiplasmosis & other diseases. I was worried that I would have to get rid of my 2 cats. Only problem was arriving at what to set the timer on, my Siamese watches it cycle, then climbs back in to play after it finishes! It would be nice if the price was lower, They would make great X-mas presents! (I've already r'cd hints ;-D)

    We had our Genie since 2008. When we had a house fire we lost ours. We set it on 3 cycles a day, never had to touch the litter box to clean. Every now and then it would get clogged because we have a long hair cat. The instruction book tells you exactually how to clean the clogged area...LOVED our Genie...
    RONALD -- lilburn, GA   11/11/2012
    Not in stock initially, so that added a few days to delivery. Installation was OK - if you read the instructions. Cats still don't like to use it. But satisfied with product.
    joe -- san diego, California   10/23/2012
    2 years now. I have the 60 cycles. Pros : - 60 cycles can be cracked to add your own soap. - still working - its fun - no bad smelling in the house - its paress cons :- long hair cat can clog the the litter. But all you need is a plier and 2 minutes. No mess. - Catgenie service is bad. They don't let me buy broken parts, you have to buy the whole thing! So I need crazy glue and patience.
    Dan -- Pennsylvania   9/10/2012
    I just got an e-mail promo for this so I thought I would share our experience. We used the cat genie for a year or so with 2 cats. They didn't really like it but used it...or so I thought until I found ton of presents behind the washer and dryer. The main thing I recall is it clogging, failing to run the cleaning cycle so you had a bowl full of poopy water and then it would blow hot air over that. We had it in a bathroom off the kitchen so that smell of hot cat poop was awful. And since the cat genie was full of water and cat poop, you had to manually run it through the cycle again and hope it worked. More times than I care to remember, I would wake up in the middle of the night with it beeping because it clogged. The biggest worry was that it would clog as soon as you left for a weekend away. So we started putting out a regular cat box so they would have someplace to go if the cat genie clogged again. That probably did not help keep the cats used to the cat genie but we just could not trust it to work when we were gone overnight. Eventually we gave up and went back to a regular cat box and regular cat litter. That made life a whole lot easier. The cat genie is a product I wish had worked well but it did not.
