The Kitty Litter Pan Problem
Stooping or bending over and down to scoop up the soiled litter into a garbage bag becomes a chore that hurts. It’s hard on the back for most folks, and downright hurts for those who have back pain. With each scoop of soiled litter a bunch of soiled litter dust floats up into your face & nostrils. And, Kitty always seems to gather soiled litter on its paws and drop it all over the floor when it leaves the litter pan. Not so sanitary.
Maybe you currently use one of those electronic litter pans that automatically sense when the kitty comes and goes in the litter pan, then automatically scrapes the litter away into a side compartment. Congratulations if you have one of those that operates reliably. Many kitty owners report that the sensor and scraper work intermittently, often not getting all of the deeper soiled litter scraped effectively, leaving soiled litter behind. Kitty lovers often just go back to the traditional way of manually cleaning the litter pan, whether scooping or using one of the “lift screen” type of litter pan. No matter what method you use to clean the litter pan, whether you have a successful electronic automatic litter pan, or use a scooping or screening method of manual litter pan cleaning, the problem remains: the litter pan is on the floor and it’s a hassle to bend over to clean it. “Litter Pan Cleaning Avoidance” sets in, and soon you’re cleaning the litter pan only every few days, rather than every day. Not good for the household smell and that’s especially unsanitary for Kitty.
THE PROBLEM IS THE KITTY LITTER PAN IS ON THE FLOOR AND YOUR ARMS ARE NOT!
