Litter Genie ... a Cat's Best Friend
I said that the Litter Genie is a Cat's Best Friend, but I have to admit, I think it is MY best friend too. It really makes taking care of my Shadow's litter box less of a chore, and maybe just maybe something that others will help out with.
I had received a Litter Genie the day before our "garbage" day and thought it would be perfect for my house, especially since my cat is only an indoor cat. You see my Shadow is a very clean cat, and always has been, but she is a real fussbucket.
When she was really little, if her litter box had been "used", she would literally "hold it" all day if she had to, until you cleaned it out. Now that she is older, she's not quite as "particular" and will use a used litter box if its not "too" used. Needless to say, I seem to be always cleaning it out. That means I am always carrying a small garbage can or bag to her "private space" to keep her litter box clean.
Now with the help of Litter Genie, I no longer have that a plastic bag in my hand! I can leave the Genie sitting right next to Shadow's litter box and neither one of us knows its there, even if it is being used numerous times during the day. As you can see, she has her own "collection" of toys and things on HER shelving, and the Litter Genie sits right there in the open. Now the lid isn't open on a regular basis .. but I wanted to show you how well it "fits" into a small space.
The lower compartment of the Litter Genie is large enough to hold days worth of used litter (they say up to 14 days) with NO ODOR but we haven't had it that long yet. We have used it for 3 days now and I have to agree - no odor, no mess, no problems.
This is the easiest way to keep the litter box clean without making multiple trips to the garbage each day and to honestly not have to worry about litter box "odors". The set up is so easy, anyone can do it, everything you need is in the box, even the scoop!
The most "difficult" part of the whole process is the bag placement - and even that is super simple. The bag assembly is shown here on the left, after I had removed the "zip strap".
Then you "pull out" the bag about 12 inches or so and feed it back through the center hole, gather at the bottom and tie a knot.
Lift the bag assembly lid, slide out the little "drawer type" slider, set the bag assembly in the top (little grooves keeps it in place) with the bag going down into the unit, close the slider, then firmly close the bag assembly lid. And YOU ARE DONE!
I told you it was EASY!
Here we have my Litter Genie after its first use ... please note you see NOTHING in the top - all the used litter has been dropped down below the slide drawer, which helps keep the odors trapped away from your and your cat's living space.
I have to say, if you have a kitten, a cat or multiple cats, the Litter Genie is a MUST HAVE.
Before you get your kitten, you make a list of things to get .... food dish, food, water bowl, litter box, litter, toys and make sure you add the Litter Genie to the list! Trust me, you will not regret it!
