Litter Genie – Diaper Pail for Litter Box Waste?
It’s funny that a second use for a diaper pail just came about. It’s one of those, “Why didn’t I think of that?”
The Litter Genie is more or less a diaper pail design for cat litter waste disposal.

Many Floppycats readers have ranted and raved to me about the Litter Genie and Litter Locker. I also like that you can order Litter Genie replacement liners online.

Do you have a Litter Genie? Do you like it?
Other Floppycats’ readers have told me that they prefer the Lucky Champ:

Hi, I’m Jenny Dean, creator of Floppycats! Ever since my Aunt got the first Ragdoll cat in our family, I have loved the breed. Inspired by my childhood Ragdoll cat, Rags, I created Floppycats to connect, share and inspire other Ragdoll cat lovers around the world,
I have a litter locker but i don’t buy the replacement bags – I use regular trash bags! I just push the bag through the top, and pul out the handle so the bottom of the bag falls to the bottom of the locker. I leave the top of the bag hanging over the sides and snap the lid on! I it works great, especially with 3 cats!
I too have the Litter Locker II and can’t say enough good things about it. With one adult Ragdoll, a liner cartridge lasts about a month. I scoop twice daily and discard once a week. No odor whatsoever and so much neater to deal with than plastic bags.
I have the Litter Locker II. I purchased it on sale at Pet Valu in March, and I love it! I have an 8 month old ragdoll and live in a small apartment – she is pretty potent when she poops! I scoop her waste into the locker now, and I have no odor issues. The liners last about a month, which is so much better than making those daily trips to the outside garbage can. I wouldn’t be without it.
I love the Litter Genie!!!! I got mine at Target with the $5 off coupon last February and love, love, love, it. Makes my life so much easier and there is no smell. I scoop twice a day for 3 kitties and it is no problem whatsoever. At the end of every week, I have about 8 pounds of poop/urine in that reinforced plastic bag that goes out with the garbage. There is NO smell and that is the nicest thing ever. Have nothing bad to say about it except I wish I had invented it!!!
I’ve recently purchased a litter genie, and I would never again do without it. I used to put the clumps in plastic bags, tied tightly, and placed in my bathroom trash can. But no plastic, whatever I tried, seemed to stop that tell-tale “litter-box” smell… But then I bought the Litter-Genie, and that was the end of smells! I think it has something to do with the plastic liners being 6 ply… And how convenient. Just tie a knot in the end to start, drop clumps, close lid, release chute… It’s supposed to be changed weekly, which only consists of flopping the top back, slicing w/ provided slicer and another knot… No mess. No smell. Many Amazon reviewers who absolutely hated the litter box chore — because of the daily trip to the garage? — now find they’ve absolutely changed their attitude about the daily scooping of the litter box. (Of course, the Litter Lifter scoop takes care of that part in a blink.)
I’ve since bought the Breeze Litter system with pellets, as well. So, my dumping is more like several weeks or when inclined. There’s only the poop. And after a long time, you’ll begin to notice an odor, when you raise the lid. (I think that’s from condensation. It’s made to dump way earlier.) And the bitty Breeze scoop takes care of any complaints you’d hear about the Genie’s scoop being too big. (It’s supposed to be turned diagonally when dumping.) The Breeze liner lasts a week. The pellets four, supposedly. However, use your nose…
I have a tiny place with a small bathroom and a dog litter pan between the toilet and sink, the Breeze litter pan right at my feet, facing the shower, and the Litter Genie next to the dog litter pan. The Litter Genie is so good that the daily changing of the dog litter liner/pine is more work than any dropping of cat stools into the Litter Genie (they can’t be dropped into the toilet, like the dog poop can. (Use the handle to move the Genie over to the Breeze pan.) The pellets do cling…) or any weekly changing of the Breeze pad (a snap). The combination is that good. The most work happens with the monthly changing of the Breeze pellets, because the entire box is dumped (don’t reuse), disassembled and thoroughly cleaned at that time.
Highly recommended! NO more cat litter box smell. And I’d know. I’m literally right on top of it every day…
Love the Lucky Champ! Hands free and works with the Litter Lifter scoop, which I use instead of the one they provide. The foot petal to open the “hatch” is the advantage over the Litter Genie. Bought mine on Amazon and purchase the refills there, too. One refill roll lasts me several months with weekly changes.
I LOVE the litter genie! I don’t have kids so I didn’t know about diaper containers, but apparently, they are similar in concept(?). I was pretty good about cleaning the litter box a few times a day and taking it out to the trash (daily), but with the litter genie, I can empty the container once a week (two kittens) and the smell is literally not there! I get approx 2 months use out of one refill, but that’s because I use the breeze system with pellets so I don’t have any urine balls to pick up and only the poo goes in the genie. So, for most people, I think they would need one refill per month. The only real downside to using the genie is that the refills can get costly, but in my case, I can’t imagine living without it 🙂
P.S. since you are an avid couponer:
1. I have found that Target is the cheapest place to get the litter genie + refills. Genie = $14.99, 2-refill pack = $14.99
2. If you go to http://littergenie.com/offer?step=2b and “share” the litter genie deal with 5 email address (I used my own email address instead of spamming friends), you get a $5 coupon.
oops, it’s not 5, it’s 3! also, you have the option to post to your facebook wall 🙂
