Affordable Bathroom Litter Tray Cupboard!

bathroom-litter-tray-cupbaord1

The Bathroom Litter Tray Cupboard is a nifty way to disguise the fact that you and your cat both have reason to visit the smallest room, which makes good use of ‘dead’ space underneath the sink.  The white tongue-and-groove style exterior of the mdf cupboard will blend well with most bathroom decors, and the interior is large enough to accommodate a 50cm litter tray plus scoop.  Both doors open fully for easy cleaning, and are latched with a push-catch mechanism.

Alas, the Bathroom Litter Tray Cupboard isn’t suitable for pedestal-mounted sinks, which I suspect means that most of us will just have to look at the photos and sigh wistfully.  But if you happen to have a wall-mounted sink you’re in luck, as the Bathroom Litter Tray Cupboard is currently available from ZooplusUK for £49.99.

Exterior measurements: L61.2cm x  W45.9cm x H56.2cm.

For more details on the marvellously named Poopoopeedo, you can check out this post I wrote back in March. But in a nutshell: La Poopoopeedo is a super-sleek, egg-shaped litter box, made from very durable plastic, which has an alternative use as a cat den, and can even be used as a year-round outdoor cat shelter – providing you cover the holes in the lid to keep the rain out.

I’m definitely adding a Poopoopeedo to my wishlist…  just need to decide whether to have it indoors as a litter box or outside as a cat shelter.

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!

To find a LitterLocker II stockist in your area, check out LitterLocker.co.uk.  And if you’re planning a trip to the London Pet Show 2014 on the 17th and 18th May, you’ll be able to find LitterLocker UK on Stand 208 in the Cat Zone.

Giveaway – Win the Litter Scoop that Changed My Life!

kkat-its-the-scoop-lg

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!

Le Poopoopeedo – Super-stylish Modern Litter Box

le poopoopeedo in orange - stylish modern litter box by sindesign

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.

Thanks to SinDesign for allowing use of their customer photos to illustrate this post!  Check out the SinDesign Facebook page for more great pics.
