Trust me. This is the absolute best litter scoop that man has ever created. The Litter-Lifter is well-designed so that the litter mostly just falls off–minimal shaking and sifting needed! As a multiple-cat owner (and lover), I spend time every day cleaning mulitiple litter boxes. Any implement that lessens the time spent scooping is something that deserves praise and attention. Buy it directly from the company, or find it at a local retailer. Thank you, Litter-Lifter.
