When it comes to litter boxes, cleanliness truly is next to godliness. Cats are fastidious creatures, and being forced to use a dirty litter box is, at best, uncomfortable for them, and at worst, will cause them to eliminate outside the box. At a minimum, boxes should be scooped twice a day, and even more frequently if you’re home.

I’m a big believer in “the right tool for the right job,” especially when it comes to something you do multiple times a day. I was intrigued when the makers of Anti-Icky-Poo, (a product I consider one of the best, if not the best, stain and odor remover on the market) and of Almost Invisible Cat Litter asked me to review their new Almost Invisible Speed Scoop.

This generously sized stainless steel scoop holds a large amount of clumps, but allows the remaining litter to flow through the tines.

Putting the Almost Invisible Speed Scoop to the test

I couldn’t believe just how easy this scoop made clean up. I’m used to a “scoop and shake” motion with the scoop I was using, and it took me a few tries with the Almost Invisible Speed Scoop to realize that there was virtually no need to shake the scoop to get all the loose litter to fall through the tines. It ended up being more of a “scoop and dump” motion, which, of course, made clean up much faster.

We use clay litter, and I was impressed with how well the scoop works when it comes to scraping the occasional caked up mess from the sides or bottom of the litter box – yet another time saver.

The aptly named Almost Invisible Speed Scoop comes with a five year unconditional replacement warrant, which tells me that this scoop is going to last a very long time, even with heavy use.

10 Comments on Review: Almost Invisible Speed Scoop

  1. Sounds and looks excellent although mixed reviews in your Comments column, I usually manage to scoop used and not used litter at the same time – which makes life difficult – and expensive…… worth looking out for though.

  2. I wasn’t a fan of that handle myself. I ended up getting a neoprene covering used for hot pan handles to make it useable.. and still we reach for other scoopers

  3. It’s fairly expensive for a litter scooper, and the spacing of the tines may be a little too broad for small clumps of silica litter. I already have the Durascoop, and it’s OK, but I’ve gone back to my sturdy plastic scooper.

  4. This is a copy of Its The Scoop by K-Kat which we use at my rescue and they are awesome (and less expensive). I wouldn’t use anything else!

  5. Little things like this can make life a whole lot more pleasant when we have three well used litterboxes to clean daily. I’ll look for this item.

  6. An interesting re-branding of the It’s The Scoop. How did you like the handle? The handle was my biggest complaint about it. Also, have you used the Litter Lifter? How did you think it compared?
