Scooping Cat Waste Was Never This Hands Off

Stocks in this article: OPCO

FAIRPORT HARBOR, Ohio, Aug. 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- What is one thing most cat owners have in common? They dread the daily maintenance of scooping waste from the litter box. That's why SmartScoop®, an OurPet's brand, is introducing its Self-Scooping Litter Box. The SmartScoop Self-Scooping Litter Box automatically scoops cat waste without the need for daily human interaction. Cat parents who are busy, traveling or preparing their home for guests will benefit by breaking free from scooping and having odor automatically eliminated.

Traditional litter boxes require the manual removal ("scooping") of waste, which, as most cat owners know, can be a dirty, smelly chore. The SmartScoop Self-Scooping Litter Box puts an end to this unpleasant task by automatically removing waste from the box and placing it into a storage compartment where odor doesn't stand a chance against the activated carbon filter. All that is left behind is clean, fresh, odor-free litter. The storage compartment is lined with SmartScoop's exclusive No-Touch Waste Bags, so owners just have to dispose of the bag when it is full. Besides being hands-off and odor-free, SmartScoop also includes incredible products valued at more than $40, as everything needed for six months* is included in the box – the No-Touch Waste Bags, Activated Carbon Filters, and a litter-catching ramp and mat. All a cat parent has to do is add their favorite clumping litter and plug SmartScoop in to an electrical outlet.

"The new SmartScoop is such a culmination of research, engineering and innovation that we are thrilled it's available for cat owners," said Dr. Steve Tsengas, president and CEO of The OurPet's Company. "SmartScoop locks in odor when it automatically scoops, making it appealing to people who are busy, traveling or simply dislike the task of scooping. Cats appreciate a clean, fresh environment and with SmartScoop, the box is always clean."

Large enough for a multi-cat home, SmartScoop automatically runs 15 minutes after the cat leaves the box, leaving the box clump-free for the next use. SmartScoop has an MSRP of $149.99 and is available online at and retailers nationwide.
