The scoop is attractive and I love that it can hang inside/outside the box via the little branded hook. I prefer hanging the scoop inside because it's cleaner in looks and use. That leads me to my one complaint about the scoop. It feels good to have the smooth handle for the underhanded use but where our finger tips wrap around and the thumb rests, there is an empty gap. That gap is not only not the most ergonomic, it also can collect litter with a deep scoop and then sometimes a shower of litter goes out with the clumps. For that reason, it'd be nice to have that area resolved but NOT a deal breaker. Less plastic is less weight and less resources. Not a bad trade-off for a good looking scoop that rests securely against inside/outside and off the floor.
This scoop is fine... except they removed the brush! This was the best part of the original scoop that came with our Modkat litter box.
this scoop fits much better on the side of our ModKat litter cube than the older previous version and its a breeze to use it
really easy to use
Good quality sturdy scoop that perfectly slots onto the side of the Modkat litterbox. In line with all Modkat products, the design is practical and attractive.
I' m only missing the brush of the "old" scoop
I have been a Modko customer for quite some time. I don't buy often---mostly because their products last and last. After many years of use, my Modkat Scoop cracked and I ordered a replacement. Turnaround time was quick; however something went wrong and my scoop did not arrive. I contacted Modko---easy to do---and a replacement was sent immediately. The point of my review is that this scoop is probably the least expensive item you can purchase through Modko (and having to resend it probably cost the company more than I paid for it), but I received the attention and service warranted by a purchase worth 100 times my purchase's cost. Thanks for great products and superb service.
The new model is supposed to be more durable. So far so good. Haven't missed the side brush from the old design.
Love the product and it fits perfectly in my small bathroom space !!!
I bought the Scoop because when my cat, Scooter, used her regular cat box she threw cat litter all over the floor while trying to cover her business. I was spending more time sweeping the floor than cleaning her box. But with the new Flip Litter, I rarely find any litter on the floor. And Scooter likes her box so much, I sometimes find her sleeping on its lid. I highly recommend the Scoop.
love your products!
its just a scoop but it has a cool hook so you can hang it off the box and a handy little brush to clean up the litter on the top of the box.
Old scoop broke, new scoop rules!
We bought the Modkat litter box 2 years ago and had to replace the bag after 1 year and the scoop just recently. I'm not a fan of having to replace the necessary accessories of the litter box, especially since they are overpriced. Otherwise, we are happy with our purchase because our cats like it and we like the modern design.
The cats and I love the Modko box. They get privacy and I can bear to look at the litter box!!
Love it! Especially the customer service that helped me find the replacement on the site!
Our cat - Smokey - has been using ModKat for over 2 years. I try to keep at least 3-4 inches of Litter on the bottom to protect the liner from scratching, but we found it easy to buy the replacement liners, too. We recently replaced the Scoop as well, so it looks fresh. I highly recommend the ModKat, and company for great service.
I have 5 modkat boxes, and have gone through many of the scoops. The shape of them and how they hang on the box is great. Some problems I have with them are that the scoop holes are still just a tiny bit too big. Second is that I hate the brush. While it's a novel idea and I'm sure many people with only one, perfect cat love it...it's a big negative for me in real life situations. Most of the cat owners I know, including myself, have cats that pee higher on the sides, or scrape down to the bottom and pee, or pee in the same corner all the time creating a big , damp, irregularly shaped mass. In these circumstances, it's almost impossible to scoop and not get the brush all gunked and caked with stuff...and it's almost impossible to clean it all off. And because the brush is so hard to clean thoroughly, when cats come down with common parasites like roundworm (whose eggs are nearly impossible to kill and have to be physically scraped off)I have no option but to throw the scoops out because I can't get all the gunk out near the bristle base that could reinfest the box. Cutting the bristles off as much as I can doesn't help either, as part of the brush that gets gunked is nestled in a place where I can't reach. Another observation, not about the scoops, is that the liners aren't made as well as they used to be. I've received several in which the corners near the bottom weren't cut or sewn right and thus they don't lie flat and fit snuggly in the box. The puffed up, mishapen corners then become a magnet for cats to tug on and claw at. This is is disappointing, especially since the liner prices have increased. The last thing I would like to see implemented is a hinge/lip/closure thing in the back, similar to the front, just above the back handle cutout that can be popped out, (like the front) for the lid to lift as it currently does. Since there is no support for the lid in that back area, and that area of the lid is very narrow, over a few months the lids have all star...
I've had my Modkat letterbox for about 18 months and love it. Not only does it look great, it's perfect for households like mine who also have dogs with their never ending fascination with cat poop. I have had to replace both the scoop which cracked and the lid which had small pieces break off after about a year. All in all I'm quite pleased.
