We'll be blogging bathrooms starting next week (March is Kitchen & Bathroom month on AT) but we are jumping the gun a little bit. We just saw a tv commercial for this last night and had to put it out there for the cat-loving contingent to weigh in on...

According to their site, the Cat Genie is the world's only "self flushing, self washing cat box" and ""the only civilized alternative"!

The commercial struck us with a bit of a goofy ick factor and made it seem like a pretty complicated item but we are not cat owners, so we are obviously not the target customer. From what we understand dealing with a litter box can be an onerous chore, so maybe the set up (it needs a hook up to water, in either the bathroom or laundry room), size (pretty big), impact (all that plastic!) and cost (over $300) are worth it for some.

What do those of you in the crowd who live with cats have to say about this item? Interesting or no way?
