Save Your Social Life with Litter Genie

Have you ever had someone to visit and walk in your door and say, "Do you have a cat?" We'd like to think they love cats, but sometimes they are responding to the litter box odor in your home. Many of us scoop on a regular basis, but sometimes we may get delayed taking the trash outside and odors can accumulate. What can you do to save your social life when you live with a cat?

A possible solution to litter box odors is the use of the Litter Genie®. The Litter Genie is a cat litter disposal system that is made from the makers of the Diaper Genie® that people use with human babies.

The Litter Genie is a nose-friendly, life-improving cat litter disposal system that works in just three steps! 

The Litter Genie is basically a pail with a built-in waste bag. There is a unique airtight design that helps keep odors inside, even when the lid is open. Once you set up the Litter Genie, there are only three steps for use: First, scoop the pet waste, then open the lid and drop the clumps inside, and then pull the handle to lock the waste inside.

Once you fill up the bag with waste, you can use the built-in cutter to cut it, tie it up, then throw away. Tie a knot again in the bottom and start all over again.

We really like the idea of the Litter Genie, because there has been many times that Mom Paula hasn't been able to empty our litter box as frequently as we'd like (bad weather, illness, etc.) by filling up a trash bag and going outside to throw it away. We believe this system will encourage her to scoop more frequently and have less of a need to go outside every time she scoops.

Some of the benefits of the Litter Genie® are:

  • Hassle-free odor control. The Litter Genie includes a seven-layer refill cartridge that lasts up to 8 weeks with one cat and is equipped with odor Barrier technology to lock away germs and odors.
  • Scooping is quick, clean, easy, and odorless. Following the simple steps above will encourage cat owners to clean the litter box more frequently with less odor.
  • Ideal for Multi-Cat Homes. The XL Litter Genie holds up to 21 days of cat litter (one cat), which is 50% more than the standard or plus Litter Genie pails. This gives you more time to spend with your cat and less time taking out the trash.
  • Everything Needed is Included. The Litter Genie pails come with a litter scoop, holder, and refill. You can purchase Litter Genie Refills at local retail stores and online.

There are three styles of the Litter Genies available - Original, Plus, and XL

We've included a short video from Litter Genie for you to watch. Mom Paula wishes she had 4 hands so she could hold the video camera, demonstrate the use, and take pictures.

On the whole, I am very pleased with the Litter Genie. At first, I was a little confused about how to set it up, but there were detailed diagrams on the instruction sheet and I watched a couple of videos. I had so many people to tell me that they used Litter Genie all the time, so I knew I had to try it. So far, it's working great, and I'll probably buy one for each of the three litter boxes I have in the house for my two cats.

  1. I dispose of litterbox waste by putting it in a plastic grocery bag, then tying it and putting in the kitchen trash. I hate it, but I don't want to go outside every time I change it.

    1. WHAT I MEANT TO SAY: I feel like Litter Genie XL would change our lives. At least, it would change the poop smell when we walk into the apartment every day. Right now we have the very advanced method of scooping it into grocery bags.

  3. We've had a Litter Genie for maybe eight years? I got one because the smell didn't go away even after I scooped the litter box - but the LG took care of that. I LOVE it. After so many years, I really need a new one. I've been meaning to beg them to let me try an XL. Now that I have two cats, it just makes more sense and since I need a new one anyway ...

  4. We've had a litter Genie for a few years, and now we have two of them. Our original one is in need of replacement (the springs don't work very well anymore) because of heavy use. Thanks for the giveaway!

  5. Interesting product! When I had a cat, many years ago now, I would use a plastic bag when I scooped out the box. I don't have a cat now, but I've been seeing so many innovative products that seem like they'd make litter box clean up a lot more pleasant.

  6. Wish this was around when I had kitties. What a great idea and what a great giveaway.

    Have a fabulous day and weekend. ♥

  7. Back when Binga was still here, this would have really come in handy! But with just me and Boodie, it's much easier keeping on top of the litter box. Still, this would be cool to have.

  8. We've actually had people visit who said we'd never guess you had cats. We've used Litter Genie since they hit the market and we wouldn't be without them!

  9. clever contraption! I have a gallon size new paint can with lid combined with a recycled grocery plastic bag. No smell as the lid fits tightly and then once it is full I just tie up the bag and
    place in the garbage. No stinky cat odors ever! have a great weekend!

  10. That is a great invention. We like ours. XO

  11. We have an idea this would really help Dad. Lets see if we win. Thanks Friends

  12. I tried one of these once on a kitty sitting assignment, it seemed to work pretty well. It would be pretty useless here with as many cats and boxes as I have I’d be filling it up every day or two and seems wasteful and expensive. I stick with the shopping bag method.

  13. I tried to comment before from my cell phone but it looks like it didn't go through. This sounds like a great product, but I don't own a cat. I'll tell my niece, who has 3 cats.

  14. How clever. My old schoolmate used to have a cat. Walking into the apartment almost killed you unless you were ready. I'd have to take in a deep breath and slowly adjust else I was dry heaving for half an hour.

  15. This sounds perfect for the apartment dweller who is has friends round and wants them to admire and love her cat, not smell it. It looks ingenious and I get the feeling someone went and asked cat parents what they need, not just 'here this works' sort of thing.

    Do you know if the bags are biodegradable? Here in NZ single use plastic is discouraged and knowing they are waste disposal conscious would be a huge selling point here.

  16. Right now We use ziptop bags. We would love one of these in the foster room

  17. I typically empty litter into a grocery bag and toss it in the outside trash can. This looks like such a better option!

  18. Right now I scoop my cat boxes into small grocery bags and throw them out. I have to take the trash out right away because the odors will not go away and linger throughout the house. I would love to try one of these genies!

  19. I scoop into a double-layered plastic bag, then take to the outside trash bin.
