How about this for a super-stylish modern litter box? Pretty impressive, eh? Le Poopoopeedo (possibly the best product name ever?) is by French company SinDesign, and has been designed by David Frering, a cat lover inspired by the ‘universally beautiful’ trend.
The innovative design of the Le Poopoopeedo cleverly belies the fact that within its sleek, curved exterior lurks a not-so-glamorous cat crap house – indeed, you may not even notice it was a litter box at all unless you put your face right up to the entrance hole (don’t do that though – not very hygienic).
Le Poopoopeedo has also been designed with functionality in mind: the lid is easily removed when you need to scoop by using the paw print shaped cut out in the top, but will remain securely in place while your cat is rummaging around inside; plus the entrance hole is situated at a sufficient height to cut down on the volume of litter an enthusiastic digger can manage to scatter outside the box. And of course, the ergonomically-shaped scoop slots nicely inside the lid.
Durability has also been taken into account, and Le Poopoopeedo is made from 4mm thick ABS plastic, which is resistant to cat urine while also being 100% recyclable.
And as if all that wasn’t enough, Le Poopoopeedo has an alternative use as a cosy cat den. I think the simple, organic shape would work really well in the garden or on the patio as an outdoor cat shelter, so I checked with SinDesign to see if the plastic they use in construction is sufficiently robust to withstand year-round exposure to the elements. They said it is, but you would need to cover the paw print holes in the lid to avoid your cat getting a soaking every time it rained!
Le Poopoopeedo is available in five colours, and comes with a litter scoop and an anti-smell tablet (me neither). Measurements: 70cm x 40cm x 40cm; entrance hole – 18cm x 21cm.
SinDesign are currently in the process of securing UK distributors for Le Poopoopeedo (stay tuned for updates on this). But if you just can’t wait, you can order direct from SinDesign for €79 (approx £66.00 at current exchange rates). You’ll need to ask about shipping rates to the UK when you order.
