Vibrating Litter Scoop!

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
I was at one of the big pet shops the other day and came across a vibrating litter scoop! I actually think it is a pretty gimicky device that promotes laziness - how long does it take to shake the scoop?!

I personally just found it incredibly funny!

Have any of you guys seen these or use them? I'm not really calling you lazy if you do use one!

Wait a minute ... you've got PetsMarts in Britain?

*sigh* Why do I get this idea that if I ever manage to do any traveling I'll feel like I never left home!

Anyway it sounds like a gimmicky thing to me, although perhaps not quite as bad as pet rocks .

The poll wasn't up when I posted last night I voted nice idea but I wouldn't buy one.

What will they think of next?

I'm beginning to see more and more products being battery operated. And of course, it must be better if the product requires a battery, right? I'm surprised they didn't come out first with a corded model and then an "advanced" cordless model !!

Tried it once. The battery burned out in 6 weeks. It was a total waste of $.

But one of my friends (who has a LOT of cats) got carpal tunnel from shaking litter scoops so I can definitely see how she would find it useful. But for me, no thanks!

A vibrating litter scoop???? OMG!

OK here's a picture of it. I don't know what this cat ate, but apparently it dispersed meatball poopies!

I wanted to post something during the workday while it was on my mind. So it did, and then I ended up seeing this post. This cracked me up!! I needed a laugh but I work in a cubicle in an office and I'm still finding it hard to control my laughter. Just when I had it under control I got to the meatball poopies part... too funny!!!

I saw that too... seems a little silly to me, but it'd be nice for an old lady with arthritis or something.

Glad it gave you a good laugh! That's the thing with TCS, we all end up seemingly insane as we laugh to ourselves!

I don't even use a litter scoop, as it allows too many small particles of soiled litter through and the litter gets dirty too fast. With a clean freak like Red Cat, I'd have to be changing the litter every few days if I used a scoop.

I use a large spoon, like an old kitchen mixing utensil. No matter how deep the litter, my boys always dig down so they urinate on the bottom, so the litter breaks up when one scoops. I tip the box from end to end and from side to side and can use the spoon to scrape the particles off the bottom with a spoon without getting too much clean litter with it.
