How much time do you spend?

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Scooping you litter boxes each day. I was thinking about it while scooping after my two. Two boxes, about 3-5 minutes each. not really that bad. Except I have to sweep around the every time I scoop because they track litter EVERYWHERE!

No time
But that's because dealing with the litter tray is Nate's job (I find it difficult to pick up both the tray with litter in it, and the bag of fresh litter, because of my arthritis).

I spend probably 10 minutes a day total. I'm a fast scooper

I spend ten to 15 minutes a day and since I switched to litter liners it takes alot less time to change the litter. Because I don't have to scrape out the pan just pick up the liner there was a bit of litter in the pan but it was the dry litter and I just poured that little bit into the trash and then picked up her newspapers and I was done.

Like 5 minutes, it doesnt take long when you do that everyday. But I usually vacuum around them everyday too, since a little bit of litter gets into the carpet in a days time.

I use 2 litter liners, this way, if they scratch through trying to "bury their business" I don't have litter spraying through, with 2 liners, I can just pull the drawstrings, and carry it to the trash!

two words: dust buster! problem solved!

I spend about 5-10 minutes, and 1/2 of that is spent with one leg and arm fighting Louie out of the box and then out of the "poop bag" all the while scooping with the other hand! (that is where he gets hollered at the most!)

I'd say 5 minutes twice a day scouping and sweeping up any litter that Rosies threw all over because Sophie's a dainty little thing when it comes to using the litterbox

It would be fun to watch you scoop boxes!

I will have to use two litter liners next time I have already changed the litter this time I just started using litter liners so still learning. But I really like them.

Oh Ben does the samething to me. He is fascinated with Poo! The last time I changed the litter he was in the pan before the liner was. Thankfully I scoped him up before he could do anything.

I spend about 5 minutes a day. Most of the time I am using the dust buster to pick up all that litter. We have a mat for them but they hate it.

with my 7 boxes, if i scoop everyday it takes about 10 minutes, but if I get lazy and skip a day, it takes 20 mins I also have a scooper watcher, Gaia, she will jump right in as soon as I take the lid off so I jsut move on to the next box while she is doing her business

I scoop Trouts once or twice a day..it only takes maybe 2 minutes..

I have 3 boxes and it takes no time at all, also Joey likes to do his business in the yard, so that's one less thing to scoop.

oh well, its not the scooping that take me time.............its the sweeping up !

Dino is a major digger and he throws it everywhere, sometimes there is more litter outside the box than in

Miss Moofs takes forever covering, so I have to wait til she makes a neat pile, before she lets me scoop

Pepsi usually uses our garden !
