CatGenie swaggers with the fact that it is the only world’s self-washing cat box, which actually resembles a human toilet and even better, because it even washes itself all that by an easy to press little button. It’s a kind of magic, magic! So, change or buy cat litter can be erased out of your system. Definitely more than just a minor plus! So, what is the magical trick behind the fact that you don’t even have to buy and use litter anymore? Well, the answer to that question lays in washable granules.
The CatGenie is (according to the promise of the manufacturer) dust, germ, odor, and litter free and automatically washes, sanitizes, and dries itself.
The CatGenie requires a cold water connection, drainage, and electric power.
What are the exact measurements of the CatGenie?
CatGenie is 19.25" wide, 24.5" long and 21" high, including the removable Cartridge. It takes the same space as a large-size, automated litter box.
What Are the Cats Dimensions of the CatsGenie?
The CatGenie Basin is 17" across, which gives a cat 230 square inches of useable cat space. Most litter boxes are 196 square inches. Large boxes are 236 square inches. To maximize the cat space, the CatGenie rounded the corners.
Places where to set up the CatGenie
Due to the fact that the GenieCat Litter Box needs a water supply, the best places to put the CatGenie is the bathroom, washing room or any other place where you have an extra water supply to connect the CatGenie.
Do I Have to Buy Any Additional Supplies or Accessories When Buying the CatGenie?
No, everything necessary is included except a wrench and a pair of pliers you need to connect with the water pipe.
Is the CatGenie programmable?
Yes, the CatGenie has several Activation choices to ease your mind. On average the delay of the cat doing business and the cleaning procedure is 10 minutes. Therefore, there is time for multiple cats to use the litter box (in case) it is necessary. According to the manufacturer claims, the CatGenie is the greenest cat box ever and quite possibly the most economical too. Even the plastic in the SaniSolution Cartridge is recyclable (as you know) this does not count for the cat litter bags.
Each cartridges holds at least 120 washes. If you set on Cat Activation you can even get 240 washes. So, to do the math right, a year supply of cartridges takes up less space and uses less plastic than one container/ a month’s supply of cat litter.
How many cats are suitable to use the CatGenie?
The CatGenie is suitable for up to 3 cats, and I recommend you to only let cats in who are 6 months and older. You should not have any issues if your cat is over 20 lbs.

Do Cats have to go on wet granulates?

Is the CatGenie noisy during cleaning cycling process?
In the less than 30-minutes cleaning process, 26 minutes are almost unhearable. There are three short periods you'll hear the sound of water draining similar in volume of your washing machine, that's it!
The entire process takes less than 30 minutes.
Cats sleep between 15 to 20 hours a day. They usually pass do their business within 30 minutes of eating their main meal. So you have plenty of time to run the CatGenie. You can also set the unit on Cat Activation. After your cat does his/her business, your CatGenie waits 10 minutes before cleaning. In a multi cat household, it gives time for a second cat to come in. Afterwards it resets and waits another 10 minutes automatically, to allow another cat to use it. CatGenie does that until every cat is done. You also have Auto Start (pre-set to run 1 to 4 times daily) and an Manual Start options.
Because the granules are made of non-toxic combination of synthetic and natural ingredients, they won't harm a cat in any form. So, in case a cat swallows them, they will straight pass through the digestive system and let go of them with one of his/her sit ins.
Yes! It is the same solution veterinarians use to clean their examination area.
Cat Genie has built-in sensors, called GenieEyes. It recognizes your cat using the CatGenie, so, the cleaning will not start. If the auto set is on it will not start until 60 seconds AFTER the cat has left the system. If another cat jumps in, the CatGenie waits until that cat leaves. It waits another 60 seconds before it Auto Starts. If programmed for Cat Activation, the CatGenie waits 10 minutes after the cat leaves the CatGenie. If another cat needs to use it, the CatGenie resets and waits another 10 minutes. It is self explanatory that you would never start the washing process when the cat is using the litter box.
Cats accept the cat-friendly shape and comfy litter Granules of the CatGenie. They use the CatGenie as they use any clean litter box.
Usually cats will understand that the cleaning is a good thing and see the cleaning as a benefit due to cats behaviorists. Many cats are fond of the warmed granules. I recommend you to run the cleaning process at night when the cat(s) are sleeping.
