This Rescue Mama's Views On The Litter Genie

***Sponsored Post: Thanks to the good folks of Litter Genie for providing me with this Litter Genie for a review. Though I was provided with a product for review I have not and am not receiving any monetary compensation for this post. My thoughts and opinions are all my own and based on my experience with this product.*****

**First, I’d like to apologize that this review is later than I had planned on posting it.  We had a family emergency with my father in law within just a few days of receiving this and we have constantly been tied up with countless appointments since the product arrived and not only did I not have the time to write this review, but the time to do the actual product review itself and I just don’t think it is fair for me to post a blog review until I have had the time to actually review the product as I will only post an honest review of products or services I or we have actually tried and or use.  So again, I apologize to both Litter Genie as well as my readers for this late review……. 

Hey everyone!  Thank you for stopping by, hope your all doing well.  Today I am sharing my thoughts on Litter Genie.  Some of you may be familiar with Diaper Genie, well Litter Genie is from the company that also brings us Diaper Genie (a product that I fell in love with when Lexi was a baby) Anyway, if you’re familiar with Diaper Genie, then you know the concept as Litter Genie is much the same, except it is made for Kitty Litter. 

Our Resident Kitties

Sebastian, Ellie and Lilly Bean

Litter Genie® , comes with everything you’ll need to get started except the litter and the kitty!  Lol…  I know Litter Genie is marketed towards Cat owners, however I do see a broader market for it as I could easily see it working for those who have Rabbits, Ferrets, Guinea Pigs, Sugar Gliders, Chinchillas, etc., as those all use a form of litter (bedding, Cedar, etc.) that is regularly changed as well. 

Litter Genie® brings you a hassle-free compact cat litter disposal system. The Litter Genie® Pail holds up to two weeks of cat litter (for one cat) and with the seven-layer refill bags, it helps lock stinky germs and odors away too. So, you can forget about those constant trips to the trash!

Litter Genie® , has this seven-layer bag that honestly locks in odor (at least for our 3 kitties it does).   As you can see from the pictures you’re getting not only the actual Litter Genie, but the system comes with a scoop, a scoop holder and bags. 

Setting up the Litter Genie is fairly simple and can be ready to go in minutes and as I mentioned before, at least in our case it does work.

LITTER GENIE® PAIL $14.99 – $16.99 (MSRP)

Litter Genie® Pail has a unique air-tight design and a seven-layer refill bag with odor barrier technology that locks away odors and germs. A purrrfect fit for any size home.

LITTER GENIE® REFILL $5.99 – $35.99 (MSRP)

Litter Genie® Refills last up to two months for one cat. Available in single, two and four-pack pack options.

Litter Genie® is available in Petco, Pet Smart, Target, Walmart,, and other retailers where pet products are sold.

I’m a pet Rescue/Foster mama with 3 resident cats (2 I’ve rescued and 1 adopted) and sometimes a foster or two, plus 9 dogs (all rescues, some I’ve rescued, some I’ve adopted, some were adoption fails).   So, as you can imagine I don’t want to worry about litter box issues.    

To give you an idea what I have been testing the Litter Genie for, I have 3 extra-large litter boxes, because our one kitty is quite long and he’s a large Siamese (and he’s just a marshmallow!)   So, I’ve been able to put the Litter Genie through its paces so to speak.

For me the Litter Genie has come in handy as I regularly clean out all 3 litter boxes and our garbage company requires we double bag any animal waste, so as you can imagine normally that would be a lot of bags that are wasted and in the landfill.  

Litter Genie®  allows me to clean all 3 litter boxes for about 4 days before I need to tie the bag off and start a new bag.  Hopefully at some point Litter Genie will make a larger Litter Genie for those with multiple kitty households.

I’d have to admit though I loved the Diaper Genie, I really didn’t have high hopes for the Litter Genie.  Let’s be honest were talking about kitty waste and I’m sure if you’re a kitty parent or family then you know what I’m talking about litter box odor can be a whole new level of STINK!  Lol… Especially kitty urine! OMGG! 

Not only have I been very happy with the performance of the Litter Genie for blocking odors, but the bags hold up just fine.  Though I do hope Litter Genie does come out with a larger refill, as having a multi-cat household the refills may not last that long.   

So how happy am I with the Litter Genie’s performance??  Well after cleaning 3 extra-large litter boxes and only needing to change the bag on day 4, I’m happy with it!  Not only has no one detected via  odor what is in the unit, no one even notices where it is located due to odor either and that is damn good for 4 days of litter box clean up!

So, as a pet parent as well as a pet rescue/foster mama, am I sold on the product?  I’d honestly have to say yes!  One of the biggest concerns an adopter has about adopting a cat or kitten is litter box odor and Litter Genie® has done a great job in our case. 


Great price point for what it does
Available at several retailers
Made by a company that brings us a lot of our favorite household products
Litter Genie was easy to set up
Easy to use
And for us the Litter Genie does what it says it will do.
Great for single kitty households
If it can handle kitty waste it might just work for other smaller pet litter changes as well.


Can be messy if you use your own scoop or even if you use the scoop that is included because the opening is a bit small.

The Litter Genie unit itself is a bit small for multi cat households so you may require more than one Litter Genie unit if you’re a multi-cat household. 

Thoughts overall:

I really like the Litter Genie; however, I do hope they plan on making a larger unit as well as a larger refill.  The bag cutter inside the unit is handy however, I found it easier to just use scissors.  The color of the Litter Genie is nice and neutral.  I would like to see a stronger closing button in the center of the unit, but other than that it has exceeded what I thought it would do.  I really thought after a day we would easily be able to detect odors, but not even on day 4 could we detect odors and I have a sensitive nose to smells! 

I hope you all find this review helpful.  Thank you again to Litter Genie® for having me review the Litter Genie. 

Thank you all for stopping by and for your continued support.

Take care and have a wonderful week,
