Scoopable cat litter is the most common type of litter box filler used today. Most cats are attracted to its texture. It performs very effectively helping to absorb the odor of a cat’s urine and feces. However, warnings on the Material Safety Data Sheets for most scoopable cat litters state that the dust created when handling the litter may be an irritant to the eyes, nose, throat and lungs.
When one scoops cat litter with a traditional scooper, the soiled clumps come to rest on the surface of the scooper. The clean litter falls quickly through the slots directly back down into the box.
Basic physics tells us that the amount of dust produced is proportionate both to the size of the imprint of the clean litter falling back into the box as well as the distance that this litter has to fall.
Veterinarian’s Choice has created the BreatheFree Litter Box Scooper which has finally solved the problem of the irritating dust created during the scooping process!
First, when the soiled clumps come to rest on the Litter Sifting Panel of the BreatheFree Scooper, the clean litter does not fall directly back into the box as it does with traditional scoopers. With the BreatheFree Scooper, the litter is diverted onto the solid Litter Chute Floor. Using the exclusive Scoop and Tilt Technique, the clean litter is then gently eased back into the box from the relatively small D-shaped opening at the back of the scooper. Thus, the size of the imprint of the clean litter falling back into the box is greatly reduced. This decreases the production of dust. Second, with the BreatheFree Scooper’s unique angular design, when the back end of the scooper is tilted down, it becomes very close to the surface of the litter box. This dramatically reduces the distance that the litter has to fall, also decreasing dust.
