No need to shake the litter scoop to clear the cat litter out of the scoop
Scoopable cat litter is the most common type of litter box filler used today.
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 scooping cat litter in the home, one can frequently
taste the dust in the mouth. Even clothing picks up the odor of the litter dust.
As the dust settles in the room, it often collects on surfaces in the area where
the scooping is being performed.
Despite claims that some litter is nearly no dust a certain amount of dust
is still produced and is clearly visible. In addition, testing has shown that
some dust is so small in particle size that it cannot even be seen by the naked
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 Breathe Free
Scoops 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.
