Everything you need to know about CatGenie Washable Granules
Carrying heavy containers of cat litter and scooping the cat box is the biggest concern for many cat lovers and for some, prevents them from owning a cat in the first place. When we developed the CatGenie, our goal was to rid cat owners of the burden of cat litter, the result? A self-washing cat box that cleans reusable Washable Granules instead of cat litter. CatGenie Washable Granules are 100% dust free and septic safe. To find out more about what went into creating Washable Granules, I interviewed a customer service rep at CatGenie. Here are top 3 common misconceptions about CatGenie Washable Granules debunked by an expert.
CatGenie Washable Granules are just little beads of plastic.
They are actually composed of natural materials. These materials are coated in special additives that help them get broken down by bacteria in a landfill or septic tank, making them septic safe. The materials have been tested by hundreds of cats to ensure they are safe and nontoxic, as well as approved by vets. Being reusable, they are also better for the environment than throwing away cat litter daily.

Washable Granules are too small.
The shape and size of the Washable Granules were invented specifically with cats comfort and usability in mind. They were designed to be as close to the size of the cat litter as possible. Keeping the Washable Granules a similar size helps the cats better adjust to the CatGenie.
The issue of litter tracking is actually about the same with traditional cat litter vs. CatGenie Washable Granules. The difference is traditional cat litter breaks down into dust over time. Unlike traditional cat litter, Washable Granules do not break down and can stick to the bottoms of your cat’s paws, your shoes etc. We recommend a Genie Mat, GenieDome or SideWalls to help prevent tracking throughout your home. Keeping a dust plan in the same room as the CatGenie and sweeping up occasionally can keep the Washable Granule tracking to a minimum. Swept up Washable Granules can be added back to the CatGenie!
Washable Granules should be round.
Cats preferred the CatGenie Washable Granules elongated shape over a rounded one. Rounded Washable Granules cause the cat to sink into the cat litter like a ball pit, a feeling they do not like. The Washable Granules shape allows the cat to dig through them naturally, without sinking to the bottom of the bowl. We tumble them in a special machine before packaging to make sure all the edges are smooth for kitty’s paws and prevent scratches/damage to the inside of the CatGenie.
The Washable Granules really are the secret to getting cats to use the CatGenie. Do not underestimate the hundreds of hours of research on cat behavior and testing needed to perfect them to fit a cat’s needs. It’s undeniable, CatGenie Washable Granules are revolutionizing the way people view cat litter.
