Scooping Cat Waste Was Never This Hands Off

SmartScoop® Self-Scooping Litter Box Eliminates Daily Scooping

The SmartScoop Self-Scooping Litter Box comes with a 6-month supply of Activated Carbon Filters and No-Touch Bags

FAIRPORT HARBOR, Ohio – 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, which is designed to automatically scoop cat waste without the need for daily human interaction. SmartScoop allows cat parents to break free from the unpleasantness of keeping their cats’ litter boxes clean and odor-free, resulting in a more enjoyable litter box experience for both the cat and the owner.

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 charcoal 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 represents incredible value for cat owners, 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.

Proven to be less noisy and pick up more cat waste than its competitor, SmartScoop works seamlessly and smoothly to give cats a fresh, new litter box every time.  After a cat leaves the SmartScoop, an automatic sensor waits 15 minutes to ensure all waste in the litter has formed clumps. The motor then moves the rake from one end of the box to the other, pushing along any waste that needs to be collected.  The rake then scoops up the waste, deposits it in the collection bin, and evenly spreads the remaining litter on its way back to the home position. The box is designed so litter and waste stay where it should – inside the box and waste compartment.  Maintenance of the SmartScoop is trouble-free as the box is easily disassembled for monthly litter removal and thorough cleaning.

“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. “The technology of SmartScoop is appealing to pet parents who do not want to touch a dirty litter box. Whether a pet parent is a traveler who needs daily maintenance while away, pregnant and must be cautious around waste, or simply looking for a better way to deal with the daily task and odor, owners will find that SmartScoop eliminates daily maintenance, saves money because less clumping litter is needed and most importantly, SmartScoop is safe for cats.”

Large enough for a multi-cat home, SmartScoop keeps its area clean and fresh, so it can be used in any room of the house.  SmartScoop comes with a litter catching ramp and mat and a six-month maintenance supply of SmartScoop accessories, which includes 24 No-Touch Waste Bags and six Activated Carbon Filters (to be changed monthly). SmartScoop has an MSRP of $149.99 and is available at
