Ashton: Did you know that you should replace your litter boxes once a year? It’s true.
Ashton: While I was waiting for treats, I asked around, and there doesn’t seem to be a guideline like that for replacing the scoop you use to clean the litter every day. I know this because our litter scoop was pretty old. Older than me. Older even than Pierre, and he’s old!
Pierre: I heard that!
Ashton: Well, it’s true. Our litter scoop was really old. So when the head peep met the the folks from K-Kat Innovative Pet Products earlier this year and they insisted that she try their It’s the Scoop, she thought she might as well. She didn’t really think that it would be any better than the plastic one she has been using for more than ten years, but at least it would be new. It looked durable, too.
She was also surprised that it was six inches wide. Our previous litter box scoop was over an inch narrower. That meant that she was covering more of the litterbox every time she scooped.
The thing she really liked was how fast the It’s the Scoop sifted litter. We made a little movie so you can see the difference. If you are eating your dinner at the computer, don’t watch it, because it has real mancat litterbox stuff in it. (You can click to watch if it doesn’t display below for you.)
Pierre: How did you know that was mancat litterbox stuff?
Ashton: Because ladycats don’t let their business end up on YouTube. Seriously, Pierre. Anyhow, the head peep loves how much faster she can clean our litter, and I love it, too, because she can be done with scooping the litterbox and get back to giving me treats.
Pierre: Do you remember what she said about the people who invented it?
Ashton: She said that they have lots of cats, too!
Pierre: The inventors of the It’s a Scoop should know about scooping litterboxes. They aren’t just pet products people. They also run Tabby Town USA, a non-profit, no-kill rescue in Wisconsin, so they scoop a lot of litter. We like that this scoop started out as the idea of people who do cat rescue!
