Clumping litter scoops
We've had cats for maybe 30 years, during which time we've had every type of litter box, including a no-litter box tray with just an adult diaper for a 20+ year old who could no longer climb into a litter box, much less cover anything with her paws.
Of late, I've come to appreciate that a liner is more trouble than it's worth. Also, once my anti-dust experiments finish up, I think I'll be happy with Scoop Away litter. Only one problem remains.
While the large lumps are easily scooped into a Litter Genie, there are small lumps in there as well, and they just pass right through the slots in the scoop. That scoop, as well as all I've seen in Petco and Petsmart, has openings--slots, actually--about 1/4" wide. I'm thinking 1/8" or maybe 3/16" would work better. Anyone know of anything like this? I've gone through Amazon's listings, but none look smaller than those I've seen, and the slot width doesn't seem to be a pertinent specification in the descriptions.
I'm halfway thinking about 1/8" hardware cloth, and making my own. Hardware cloth is a steel mesh product a lot like window screen but harder and with larger holes. 1/4" is pretty common. 1/8" is used, I believe, by beekeepers. Has anyone tried that?
Any ideas will be appreciated.
