litter-genie review

When it comes to litter boxes, cleanliness truly is next to godliness. Cats are fastidious creatures. Using a dirty litter box is, at best, uncomfortable for them, and at worst, will cause them to eliminate outside the box. A dirty litter box, to a cat, is the same as a public restroom with unflushed toilets and toilet paper all over the floor is to us. How many times have you walked out of a restroom like that without using it, no matter how badly you needed to go?

Litter boxes should be scooped to remove urine clumps and feces at least twice a day, or more frequently if you’re home. This not only makes your cats happy, but it will also keep your litter box and your home odor-free.

The Litter Genie Cat Litter Disposal System

The Litter Genie is a cleverly designed litter pail that locks litter and odor away in three easy steps. The compact design fits even into small spaces and holds up to two weeks of litter (for one cat.) The Litter Genie uses seven-layer refill bags with odor lock technology. An added microbial prevents odors caused by bacteria on the pail.

Putting the Litter Genie to the test

I was quite happy with my litter scooping system and didn’t really think I needed the Litter Genie. Since I work from home, I pretty much scoop whenever Allegra and Ruby deposit something in our two boxes. I drop urine clumps and feces into doggie waste bags, and deposit them in the trash can in the garage. Odor has never been an issue in my home.

So yes, I admit, I was skeptical. I felt uneasy about not immediately dumping my baggies in the trash in the garage. After using the Litter Genie for a week, I have to say, I was impressed. The Litter Genie lived up to its promise: there was no odor whatsoever. Not having to make several trips a day to dump baggies in the garage trash was an added bonus.
