Thanks very much to LitterLocker UK for supplying such a great prize; and if you weren’t lucky enough to win, but would still like somewhere to stash your cat’s poo in between visits to the wheelie bin, the LitterLocker II is widely available in the UK, and can currently be found on Amazon for the discounted price of £9.45.

May Giveaway! Win a Litterlocker ll – the Ultimate Cat Litter Disposal System

The lovely people from LitterLocker UK are kindly giving three lucky Cool for Cats UK readers the chance to win a LitterLocker II – the ultimate cat litter disposal system! (Find out how to enter the giveaway at the end of this post.)

litterlocker ll - ultimate cat litter disposal system

The LitterLocker II is designed to be used with clumping cat litter, and provides a convenient, completely odour-free method of storing cat poo and clumped litter for up to 2 weeks for one cat – which will save you a fair few trips to the dustbin while trying to hold a grocery bag in such a way that none of the soiled litter drops out through the safety holes!

The LitterLocker II is very easy to use – simply open the lid and drop your cat’s latest downloads into the bin, then pull the handle to allow the soiled litter to fall to the bottom of the bag, and release the handle to create an air-tight seal on the bag.

Here’s a useful video which demonstrates the whole procedure very nicely (lumps of coal are used as poo substitutes, so it’s safe to watch this if you’re eating!):

When the bag is full, you open the unit, cut the bag free and dispose of it, and then pull more film from the refill, tie a knot in the end to create a new bag and pull it to the bottom of the bin.  Each refill cartridge lasts for 2 months on average for one cat.  (Which saves an estimated 60 grocery bags.)

The LitterLocker II has a reasonably unobtrusive design, is lightweight and doesn’t take up much room – it measures W22cm x D23cm x H24cm.  It comes with a litter scoop (which sits neatly in a holder on the side of the unit) and your first refill cartridge.

I’ve never used a LitterLocker, but having read the Amazon UK Customer Reviews, I think I’ll treat myself to one – it’ll certainly be an improvement on my current Pedal Bin Liner in an Airtight Bread Bin system!

Congratulations, Rebecca C, you’ve won The Scoop!  I’m sure from now on litter tray duty will be a pleasure rather than a chore.  (That may be a slight exaggeration, but scooping will certainly take up less of your time!)

If you weren’t lucky enough to win, but would still like to get your hands on the Rolls Royce of litter scoops, The Scoop is available from The Pet Business for £14.99.

Giveaway – Win the Litter Scoop that Changed My Life!

The Scoop may not seem like a particularly exciting giveaway prize, but what it lacks in the thrills department is more than made up for with its impressively practical design.  The Scoop is by the US company, K-Kat, but is available here in the UK from The Pet Business – an online retailer who specialise in high-quality, innovative pet products which represent good value for money.

To enter the giveaway, please leave a comment at the end of this post.

Boring but necessary giveaway rules:   Entries must be in before midnight on 31st March 2014.  Only one entry per person, please!  The winner will be selected by a random electronic draw on 01/04/14 and notified by email.  The winner will receive one K-Kat The Scoop cat litter scoop.  Prize must be claimed within 14 days of notification by email, otherwise a new winner will be selected. Sorry, but this giveaway is only open to addresses within the UK!

The Scoop was designed by Ted Glover, who, along with his wife Marie, runs Tabby Town USA – a no-kill rescue shelter in the States.  Ted designed The Scoop for use in multi-cat households and rescue centres – where multiple litter trays need scooping as quickly as possible.  When used in conjunction with clumping cat litter, The Scoop aims to significantly reduce the time and effort it takes to remove clumps and other feline downloads from a litter tray.

Here’s a short video to give you an idea of how The Scoop differs from other scoops on the market.  (If you’re reading this by email or other subscription service you may have to click on the post title to view the video.)

But does The Scoop fulfill its brief?  In a word, yes.  I can say this with confidence as The Pet Business kindly sent me a Scoop to try out.  I’ve been using it for around a month now and it’s noticeably reduced the amount of time I spend scooping trays – it really has changed my life!  It may seem strange for me to be so excited by a litter scoop, so please allow me to contextualise my enthusiasm: I live in a one-bed flat along with five cats and five litter trays, and in order to keep the cats happy (and to provide a smell-free environment for myself!) I scoop each tray three or four times daily – which adds up to a not-insignificant amount of time spent sifting for clumps.

It took me a couple of days to get used to The Scoop, but once I’d adapted my scooping technique to take advantage of the large, deep collection basket I was whizzing through the 5-tray-scoop in no time!  I use  Ökoplus, a wood-based litter, but I imagine The Scoop would be fantastic for clay-based litters too – particularly for scraping off those annoying clumps which set like cement to the bottom of the tray.

If you have arthritic hands The Scoop may not be great for you as the metal handle can feel pretty cold to the touch and may prove painful to hold, but otherwise it would be a very useful addition to anyone’s litter tray kit – even if you’re just cleaning up after the one cat it would cut down on your face-in-tray time; which can never be a bad thing!
