Reviews Summary

A real mixed bag! Some people loved it and some really hated it. 

Praise was given to the system when new and everything worked well in this complex cat toilet.

Some cats did not take well to the deep bowl and the plastic granules can find their way around the house.

Comments about this unit really changing their lives was offset by reviews of the cat poop not being picked up completely and being heated, by the drying fan, and really making a stink!
