I use regular clumping litter and this works perfectly and easy to clean
29/10/18 | Barry
I use 6mm extruded wood pellets, these break down once wet, so I scoop the poop with a normal scoop, then use this to sieve out & keep the big pellets, shaking the fine saw dust into the nappy bags I use to dispose of the waste. The improvement I want is to make the front lip longer ie for the holes not to start so close front to enable it to collect more dust from the bottom of the tray. But no, it's of no use to separate normal unsoiled litter from stuck together clumps.

I like the fine mesh, no fine litter slips through. I had to search, as most littler scoops are wide meshed. I have ordered two.
Handle should be stronger
Good mesh and works well with the best clumping litters such as Tigerino, but I have to use two scoops, using this one at the end. Handle isn't strong enough for heavy clumps.

Does a great job
I volunteer at a cat rescue and I scoop a *lot* of litter. We have a motley assortment of scoops for the different rooms, and I'd have to say this is my favourite and it's the one I have at home. It doesn't break the pee clumps up, which is my personal bug bear. I've been using Sanicat Zen at home, and it works great with this - I'll be switching to Super Benek soon (I wanted something biodegradable), so fingers crossed it's just as good with that one.

Great for All Litter Types
So far I have used this item for clumping, crystal, clay and non clumping litter and am very happy with the results. It catches the smallest pieces of soiled litter but is also big enough to make scooping large clumps out easier than with other scoops I have tried. It is also wipe clean so doesn't end up with stray pieces of litter stuck to it

Works fab with fine clumping cat litter
I bought this scoop as the one provided with the Modkat wasn't suitable for the Tigerino Clumping Cat Litter that I am using for my Bengal Boy. This scoop has been an absolute life saver! Would highly recommend it when using fine cat litter as it traps the smallest bits of soiled litter. It isn't the most robust of scoops I have seen but for the price what do you expect? It does the job it is intended for and that's all that matters to me.

Good scoop with very small gaps, just don't make the mistake I did and order it with a heavy food order - I ordered 2 with a 20kg cat food order and 1 arrived split- pointless returning and getting refund/ replacement as it would cost more than scoop cost to return, and to get your postage costs refunded you have to email proof of posting, more hassle than I could be bothered with. . . .

Fine mesh scoop at last
I've been wanting a fine mesh scoop for ages and now I have one. Great value for money and works perfectly with the fine granules in Worlds Best cat litter.
Excellent - if you know how to use it!
Lets get this straight from the off. This scoop is no good for larger grained litter . It's only really useable with a very fine litter.
Try and clean the whole tray using it, and you could be making more work for yourself. The holes are tiny, so it takes a while for stuff to filter through, however, this scoop will prove to be a very worthwhile addition! I promise you that.
I have 15 litter trays that I clean every day, so do have more experience than most. The best way to deal with your litter tray is as follows... Use a standard scoop to take out the large lumps of 'nastiness'. This is quick and easy, as scoops with larger holes will sieve quicker. Take care doing it - every time you bash a lump and bits break off, they will stay in your tray making it smell... Once you've removed the large lumps, shake the tray, so the smallest chunks rise to the top. these are bits that have broken off the larger chunks as you've cleaned the tray/your cat has dug around. Use this scoop to remove those bits.
It will keep your tray fresher for longer, and keep your costs down as you won't be constantly replacing the whole tray contents.

Great fine litter scoop!
I use Professional Classic litter which has a fine granule, and have found the ideal solution is to use Trixie clumping litter scoop for the larger 'bits'together with this scoop every day or so to fish out the smaller pieces of used litter. At only 99p each its hardly extravagant and keeps the tray very clean.I think this scoop alone would have too fine holes but it is great in tandem with the other Trixie scoop. Both have about 6inch handles and seem sturdy to use.

Does the work
A good purchase considering the price, unfortunately seems that with litter like "Cat's Best Öko Plus cat litter" Im throwing away a lot of unused litter too, the scoop's holes are not big/wide enough to let everything unused fall down. But otherwise its ok!

Essential for CLAY based clumping litter
If you use the clay litter like Tigerino Canada, then you need one of these fine mesh scoops.
It's able to remove all traces of used litter leaving your tray completely clean, and saving you money as you'll rarely need to do a complete litter change.
I feel like I'm playing in a sand pit when i clean out the litter trays using this scoop.You scoop some up and shake, like sifting flour.

Best product ever !
First of all this is simply the best money i have ever spent! I have been using a useless scoop for far to long and everything drops through but i bought this because i use extremely fine cat litter (classy cat or tigerino) and this catches everything but the clean. it's perfect however wouldn't recommend for a chunky litter.

The best scoop ever!
I have tried for years to replace an old metal scoop that worked really well. I have since bought half a dozen or more ranging in price but always went back to the old one.
However, my new scoop is the bees knees!. It picks all the dirty litter up even the fine stuff.
Brilliant value a must have for kitty owners!

I highly recommend this product!
This litter scoop is great if you use very fine clumping litter. I use Classy Cat and this gets every little clump. This keeps the litter box cleaner for longer. I also think it is quite sturdy compared to some of the litter scoops I have used in the past.

This is the best litter scooop ever.
Its handy easy to clean and leaves nothing unwantet leftofers in the litter box. and at the price it does not matter if it breaks before you need to chance it anyway but dont step on it or spank the walls with it ;D its supose to be used in the litterbox for removing stuff from the cats. not anything else.
Use it with care and you shall have wonder litter scoop for a looong time i have 4 and they are over 1 year old. need to re-new them now anyway as they dont last forever just like our own toilet stuff ;D

Good, but not very strong
I have bought 3 of these scoops over the past couple of years as they are great for using with the Extreme Cat Litter from Zooplus. Yes, the mesh is fine, but so is this litter (I've also used it with Worlds Best cat litter with no problems. I use this litter for finer 'bits' and an normal scoop for the big clumps.
The only reason this isn't rated higher is that the scoop is quite thin and not the strongest, but for £1.90 what do you expect?
Use it with the right litter and you're away

For fine sand.
If you use fine and clumping litter then this is a good choice.
Grid too small
I'm araid I have to agree with the previous review even though I use a very different type of litter (World's Best Cat litter) which is actually quite fine and clumping. This scoop allows almost no litter through and I imagine it's only suited to fine sand-type litter.
