Step 1. Place your CatGenie in its location. Run a cycle to get familiar with how it works, to check the setup and to satisfy your curiosity. You know your cats. Will they find it fascinating? Will they be wary? Depending on their personality, you may just allow them to satisfy their curiosity and watch it. Until your cats are comfortable with the CatGenie, we recommend manually starting the CatGenie instead of setting it to automatic mode.
Step 2. Allow your cats to investigate the CatGenie. Leave the door open. Treat them in the new location. Praise them as they explore it. Act normal, natural and let your cats be curious - remember patience is key.
Step 3. If the CatGenie is placed in a different location to their old litter box, slowly move their old litter box to the new area. If the litter box needs to be moved a great distance, cat behaviourists recommend moving it little by little, slowly over time to the new location so that your cats gradually adjust to the change. If your cats are quick to "get it, great!"
Step 4. When the old litter box is in the same location as the CatGenie, keep is there but don't clean it. Clean the CatGenie everyday about one to two times a day for each cat even if you think they're not using it. Cat urine doesn't show on CatGenie Granules. Let your cat get used to the sounds, smells, and prescence of the CatGenie. It's very important that you act calm around the CatGenie. DO keep the new area clean and cat friendly with toys and treats.
Step 5. On the first day or two, run cleaning cycles manually. In the first week, depending on your cat's temperamen, you may want to run the CatGenie while your cats are not around as the new sound might startle them. Many cats don't mind the souds or movements from the start. Cats soon learn to associate the sounds and clean smells with their new, always clean cat box. DO praise and treat your cats when they use it. DON'T follow your cats into their bathroom. DON"T force cats into the CatGenie
Step 6. Program the Cat Activation mode; it is the best way for you and your cats to enjoy the most from your CatGenie.
