    I vote for litter bot. The idea of it scoopin the box after the kitty uses sounds so nice to me! Never heard of cat genie.

    I have a cat genie that I no longer use. The reels of plastic bags are expensive and as much as my two kitties use the box I was having to change it frequently. It wasn't really very convenient. I now use then method below with better results.

    I put a kitchen bag in a large empty litter tub with lid. I clean the litter daily and put in the grocery bags then tie and put in tub and close the lid. On garbage day I take out the kitchen bag.

    I have not tried the litter robot.

    I love, love, love my litter-robot!! No complaints ...unless I forget to empty the drawer, because there's no smell it's easy to forget after a few days with 4 cats...you get the picture - but that's my fault, not the robot's! :LOL:

    Sounds like Cat-genie is alot like the diaper genie which with having 3 kids, I found totally useless and I had to change the bags in it more than the diapers I changed. lol

    I'm still voting for the Litter Robot and have plans of my own to get one for Snuffie.

    The Cat Genie is the automatic litter box that hooks directly to your water line and basically flushes the waste, washes and dries the litter. No scooping, no buying litter...it sounds amazing. I might have bought one of those if my bathroom was big enough, but it wasn't so I got the awesome Litter-Robot instead. Someone reviewed the Cat Genie on this forum a long time ago, if you do a forum search, I know some of our members have one!

    I use Dr. Elsey's Precious Cat (because it's 99% dust free and unscented) but you can use any clumping litter you like!

    It does not work with Feline Pine, though, the pellets are too big.

    PetSmart sells it, and my local natural foods pet shop also carries it. It should be pretty easy to find at many retailers.
