Have you been looking for comprehensive reviews on the Cat Genie 120 litter box?
Then you have come to the right place…
Is it really a ‘hands-free’ cat litter solution?
I will be reviewing all the major features of this unit including, the key features, how the unit works, how to set it up, the pros and the cons, my helpful tips and tricks as well as my own conclusion of the this waste box.
The Cat Genie litter box is the first and only self flushing of its kind which uses water and washable plastic granules (Plastic reusable litter) which actually functions like a flushing toilet for a cat, in fact the unit it is the first environmentally friendly Green litter box to hit the market.
My first impression of the construction of the litter pan is extremely solid and durable, using heavy duty materials such as solid plastic for the surrounding enclosure, aluminum for the pins and a rugged motor design which is capable to with stand many uses. The unit comes with a deep and spacious circular litter base which can easily handle large cats as well as multiple household cats, the high wall design stops any litter kicking cats from kicking litter out of the waste box.
This Cat genie quite a large unit in comparison to most other cat boxes on the market (24.5 x 19.2 x 21 inches) so you would need plenty of room for this unit to sit, ideally in a laundry room or somewhere with a water inlet and power access.

How does the litter CatGenie works?
The Cat Genie automatic litter tray is connected to a cold water supply ideally located in the laundry and a second line known as the sewer line can be installed into any sink pipe.
Washable plastic biodegradable litter granules are placed inside of the litter pan base section where your cat will do their business. Water is dripped down through the granules into a base of the waste box which contains a special mix of sanitizing solution known as SaniSolution.
During the automated cleaning process, the base of the sandbox bowl starts to rotate while simultaneously the granules are filtering through the scooper. The scooper traps all the solid feces and then scoops it up into the waste receptacle for further breakdown.
