Cat Toilet Inventor Doesn’t Pussyfoot Around

TEL AVIV, Israel (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – An inventor in Tel Aviv, Israel, isn’t pussyfooting around: He wants to be the Thomas Edison of cat poop.

Tal Gordon is the creator of something called the CatGenie, which is the world’s first self-cleaning cat toilet.

The device uses washable litter and hooks up to a water supply that automatically flushes itself every 24 hours.

Gordon was asked to tackle the cat poop problem by his sister- in-law but, after polling various cat ladies, discovered, “Most people don’t know how to describe the perfect litter box [because] they don’t actually want one.”

Now, Gordon is putting his kitty commode on the market and hopes cat owners won’t mind shelling out $299 for a device that allows them to forget their feline’s feces.

Still, it won’t solve every pussycat problem. Gordon admits that some cats will still scatter and track litter throughout the house but says, “We’re working on that.”
