  • 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).

    Important Notes:
    • Due to the nature of this product, we cannot accept returns. Thank you for your understanding.

    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.
         •  Comparison: Ordinary Litter Box vs. CatGenie Self-Cleaning Litter Box

Each CatGenie SaniSolution Smart Cartridge is good for 120 washings and are available in Fresh Scent and Scent Free formulas.

    Best Thing EVER! Review by James
    Best Thing EVER!

    Perform the maintenance regularly, and you will never have to deal with cat waste. I have two in my home, and it's amazing. Cats love them too!

    Get This Immediately! Review by James
    Get This Immediately!

    I have two cats, and have had two CatGenies in the house for 4 years. They are incredible. I'm disabled so maintaining the cat litter is especially difficult for me. These machines are my salvation! I recently bought a third because I was having a problem with one of the originals, but it turned out one of the gaskets had fallen off when I opened the machine up to fix it. Apparently the cats dragged something into the box which had been scooped up, and was causing it to be noisy as it was caught in the impeller. (Picture a baseball card in the spoke of a bicycle and the noise it made as a kid, and that's essentially what it was. Not a big issue, but needed to be cleared out.)

    Setting up the new CatGenie made it clear that my issue was the gasket having somehow come off when I was clearing out the problem, so I replaced the gasket with one of the spares they send to you with the machine and it worked fine. I still kept the new one I ordered from SmartHome and I am using it, with the original that I cleared out being used as the backup should I have a problem. I know I can just swap it out without an interruption to the litter situation while I correct any issue. Always good to have a spare! Other than buying the cleaning solution cartridges, running the system maintenance cartridge once a month, topping off the plastic granules that are the litter replacement about twice a year, and occasionally having to open the machine to clear it out should the cats drag something into the box, these boxes have been on autopilot since I bought them 4 years ago! I highly recommend! Engineered wonderfully so that any issue is usually easily corrected. They've thought of everything!

    A dream come true/A nightmare of epic proportions Review by ihatecatbrownies
    A dream come true/A nightmare of epic proportions

    As my title may suggest, I'm a bit split on this product...

    On one hand, it is like a dream, not having to empty a stinky, rancid litter box. A task missed even less when you factor in my chronic levels of procrastination, and overall lack if motivation. Believe me when I say those factors equalled an unsavoury treat, each and every time the cat and I would agree enough was enough, and I'd unwillingly empty the unspeakable cesspool of aromatic despair, in all it's eye-burning splendour!

    Then... My salvation! The Cat Genie.

    This unit is basically a toilet for your cat. The only difference being, your stink-filled kitty climbs right into the bowl, and we tend to sit on ours.
    Once inside, he does his best to destroy any pleasant atmosphere you may or may not have in your home. He relieves himself onto the plastic granules, which simulate the litter used in traditional litter boxes.
    (If your biggest complaint about your cat box is litter dragged all over your home, don't get this thing thinking it will help... The plastic granules are just as bad, maybe even being a little worse.)

    After he has done his business, he scratches, spins about a bit, and walks out of the Cat Genie, proud that he has once again annihilated the scented-serenity of the home you both share... But this time, his victory prance is rudely interrupted by the grinding of the Cat Genie's electric motor spinning the very platter your beloved kitten just pooped all over, in the direction of an automated litter scoop, which 'empties' the bowl area of the Cat Genie.

    Unfortunately, this auto-scooper has a bit of a greedy streak, coupled with an over-active sense of duty. J
    ust when you think is has the whole mess, and is preparing to triumphantly flick it backward, into the poop abyss, it feels the need to go back for stragglers... Why? You have it all, you moronic robotic cat litter scoop! Why do you need to go back for more?!?! Furthermore, if you are so driven to clear your guilty conscience of the fact you may have left one loner poop spinning around in the bowl, couldn't you at least toss what you have successfully already obtained from the bowl first?
    I guess the initiative is too strong in this scoop to take the extra .02 seconds required to flick it out of harm's way. Instead, it takes all of the kids back to the pool for it's final 'piece-of-mind' sweep of the bowl.
    As luck, and poor design would have it, every damn time the scoop goes in for the big finale, it chokes, and always drops one or two cat poops back into the granules, where they are washed, and then dried by the use of heated, fan-driven air.
    Prepare yourself for a truly a unique treat when the heated 'granule drying cycle' begins. The 'delightful' smell which the leftover pieces of cat waste emits once it is heated is perfectly pungent.
    The term adopted by many Cat Genie-owning cat lovers to describe the unmistakable smell created by this unfortunate side-effect is 'cat brownies'... Believe me when I say this is one baked delicacy that will not tempt you to cheat on your latest diet... You might even be hard pressed to get any food down for the next little while, as this smell is in a way, worse than my cat's two-week old litter box.
    Something occurs during the heating process of cat feces, that honestly sends it's odour into the stratosphere. Once you smell it, you'll never be able to forget it... but you'll definitely wish you could!

    So, the cycle is complete, the cat waste (spare the one or two baked feline specialties the robo-scoop was thoughtful enough to leave behind for your enjoyment). has been successfully evacuated from your home, through the waste water lines of either your toilet, of your washing machine. The unit can be installed using either.

    Fortunately my cat took to this thing like a fish to water. I've read many a horror story concerning finicky felines who wouldn't go near this new-fangled contraption, choosing instead to stick with the reliable (not to mention smelly) traditional litter box, thereby leaving their owners holding the bag on a useless purchase which cost them upwards of $600.

    That's a cat for you though... Their independence is endearing, is it not? Or is that enraging? Who first had the idea to bring these privileged animals inside of their homes, anyway? Would we do it today?

    Catgenie is NOT a military friendly company! Review by militarycatlady
    Catgenie is NOT a military friendly company!

    I love my cat genie. It's a wonderful product. However, I'm stationed on an Air Force base overseas, and my scooper motor has stopped working. Catgenie tells me now that my warranty is void outside of North America. I have a military address, that is in San Francisco. Anyone familiar with military will know that as an APO. It would be simple trip to the post office to send me a replacement item as promised in my warranty. It's really sad when a company has a great product and such poor customer service.

    RUN FROM THIS MACHINE!!! Review by HannahG

    When it works, hallelujah. However, every few months, get ready to enter the sewer-like interior of the machine to fix its constant breakdowns. As a long-time user, I was willing to go through this for the daily convenience, but now customer service is downright arrogant, unwilling to help me fix my (yet again) broken unit. I was willing to pay the exorbitant, ongoing supply costs. I was willing to go through crappy hell every few months. I am NOT willing to be treated so poorly by this company. There are other solutions out there. Take my advice and look elsewhere.

    Don't waste your money Review by Craig
    Don't waste your money

    I bought the unit a few years ago and it turned out I couldent use it in the space I had. I left it in heated storage, and when had a place I could use it I got it and connected it up, besides the water hose leaking, it wouldn't scoop, and the impeller that pumps out the waste had cracked and fallen off. I took it apart and the cleaning solution leaked out and corroded one of the five cheap motors that runs the unit plus the the solution hose had cracked and broken. I called to purchase a new motor as they advertise such great customer service. I was told that it was an older unit and they wouldn't sell me any parts anyway because of "liability". Yeah, great excuse not to stand behind a overpriced defective product. It ran a total of about 4 scoops in its life. I guess about $100 a scoop, that certainly was a good deal. My advise, pay someone to do it for you, it would be cheaper, and that doesn't even count the fact it is designed to not work at all unless you buy their own special "cleaning solution" that comes in a foil bag in a plastic box with a computer chip to disable it if you don't keep buying their expensive cartridges of cleaner.
    I know if I ran a company and someone called with a problem with a product I sold them, especially one that is essentially unused, I would try to get the parts to fix it or at the very least offer them a new unit at a substantial discount, as I'm sure they make prenty of money on supplies as the have created a captive market. No remedy of any kind was offered.
    It seems like a good idea, too bad someone doesn't build a quality unit, provide support, and not gouge its customers be making them use their own overpriced cleaner.
    My advise, don't waste your money

    cat not using flushable box Review by Chris G
    cat not using flushable box

    My cat will not use the Genie flushable cat box. We have 2 cats, one uses it the other won't. Do you have any suggestions?

    Review by JJ

    The concept of Cat Genie is GREAT! The LitterFree machine worked awesomely (predecessor to the Cat Genie). The Cat Genie is TOO DEEP and ROUND, and ALL my kitties refused to use it. The predecessor LitterFree, was only 7 inches high and rectangular, like ALL other cat boxes. I hope some day they will change the Cat Genie to be rectangular and MUCH LESS deep, like 7 inches high. Anything higher is too high for any cat, esp. kittens and older cats. Even the people at Cat Genie said the bowl is too deep for some cats!!!

    Makes owning a cat much easier!

    Love the box, no more scooping smelly cat works 90% of the time and occasional gets jammed but well worth it because I never have to scoop the litter again. Great purchase and great service from Smarthome, have recommended to many friends.
