Maybe they can just replace their own toilet all together and buy a whole tonne of these things and they can all use them!!

Oooh i need chocolate

Ha! And the thing is, for all its technology, it doesn't solve the problem of kitties having to step into each other's poop, or of poop sitting around smelling bad for hours! That's why we didn't even give it a second look. For a little less money, we got a Litter Robot, which gives the kitties clean litter every time, and almost entirely eliminates smells when it cycles after each visit.

What I'd really like is an extra bathroom where the kitties could learn to use a regular toilet... with an electric eye that would flush for them...

Don't think it would go over well in my house.

Well that is ummm...a little over the top

I'll stick to good, old fashioned scooping! Cheaper and no fancy bits to go wrong
post #14 of 26
Good in theory but expensive anda little weird!
post #15 of 26
Yeah, ditto for me. It's nice tho.

That is an excellent invention! I think my cat would be scared of it but then again I'm not sure. Seems like an excellent idea for inside cats though, Sooty is getting used to the litter in the litter box though.

Have we seriously gotten so incredibly lazy, that we will spend hundreds of hard-earned dollars on a machine that flushes cat poop?! Rather than spend $10 dollars on a litter box, $2 on a scoop, and take 2 itty bitty minutes out of our day to scoop the litterbox, we spend hundreds and hundreds of dollars on a machine to do it for us?! Sorry, it just seems so incredibly un-necessary. I mean, I can buy a fine-looking yearling horse colt for that... No thanks.

It's just a shame it's not available in Australia!!

I'm going to have to go with Kuntry on this one....

*cracks up at Sooty* Sorry, guess I got a little carried away... But really, has America seriously gotten that lazy? That is alot of money for something we can do ourselves perfectly fine... Is it that inconvenient to take two minutes a day and clean out the litter box and save your money for something more important, say food, or electricity bills, phone bills, car payments, college funds... Sorry, I've just always lived on a ranch which does NOT pay alot of money so we've lived frugally and I can't understand why somebody would want to pay money for something like this. To me, it sounds ridiculous, we can do this ourselves and save hundreds of dollars! Not to mention all the complications that can arise with this new fangled machine... it could break so easily...

For those of us who work 7 days a week at 2 jobs, this can be a life and nose saver! I'm just wondering what would happen if your kitty was using the litter when the scheduled flush was scheduled!

For a while, there were books and inventions all over to teach kitties to actually use the toilet! You would have to flush after them, but no more litter box!

Sweets: I'm sure that it's more convenient, but if you work 7 days a week, 2 jobs, surely this is because you don't have the money to spend on neccessities, much less this thing? I just believe there are better ways to spend alllll that money... As I mentioned before, there are bills to pay. And surely you can find 2 minutes before bedtime to clean out the litter box? I really don't see how it's so incredibly inconvenient, but maybe it's just me. I've always lived frugally.

There was a forum about this before. Some cats don't like to use it because the pellets are really strange. Plastic pellets sort of. You also have to have a water hook up for it.

Just dropped by here again and have to say in defense of our Litter Robot: we have six cats, my mom is 82, and I have a thrice-injured back that goes into spasms when I bend for more than a moment. If we can make our lives less painful -- and in my mom's case, possibly prevent a stroke -- by spending a little extra on a machine that drastically reduces our labor, cuts down on the amount of litter we have to buy and lug around, keeps the house smelling good, and keeps our cats from having to step in used litter... that's well worth it to us!

As I mentioned before, this Cat Genie thing doesn't solve the last two problems on that list, and I wouldn't want one of those myself... but please, my friends, don't knock the Litter Robot till you've tried it! It's been a godsend for us...

Have to say I wouldnt go for it but I would consider some form of self clean litter tray. 3 cats and a dog to walk is time consuming and I live in a 3 story house with littery tray at top ( rest of family too busy) so I deff would be interested in some form of self clean litter tray, but one snag for me.....their never available to UK
Think the problem is our stores just dont stock the refills they probs use. Anyways its the enclosed litter tray with cat flap and scooper for me.

I suppose this litter tray is suppose to make up its cost by the fact you never buy cat litter (supposedly).

Be wary of their three month payment plan, I aided it up and if you go the payment plan they scam you $30

The full way -$329

The pay over time- $99 plus $30 plus two payments of $115 = $259
