PetFusion has long been known for making top quality modern cat products. The brand recently added three new products to its line: the ToughGrip Litter Mat, the QuickScoop Litter Scoop, and a large litter box with a non-stick coating.
PetFusion ToughGrip Litter Mat
This is a heavy duty litter mat. Made from premium FDA grade silicone, the mat is waterproof, anti-microbial, non-toxic, and hypoallergenic. It is designed with elevated inner ridges and an outer lip to contain cat litter. It comes in two generous sizes, at 27 x 22 inches and 38 x 26 inches with a 0.25 inch lip. The mat comes with a 12 month warranty for any manufacturing defects.
This mat really does what it says: litter stays on the mat. Clean up is easy – either vacuum up trapped litter, or simply pick the mat up, fold it and pour the clean litter back in the box. We use a high-sided litter box, so we don’t usually have a lot of litter outside the box, but if you have a litter kicker, this mat could actually save you litter.
I’ll offer one caution: if you’ve never used a litter mat before, or even if you’re currently using one with a different texture, give your cats a chance to get used to the texture of this mat before you put it under the box. Allegra and Ruby did not mind the ridged texture, but some cats may not like it, and you don’t want to inadvertently cause a litter box aversion.
The PetFusion ToughGrip Litter Mat is available from Amazon with free shipping for Prime members.
QuickScoop Litter Scoop
This generously sized litter scoop measures 13.2 x 4.8 x 3.2″. It is made from ABS plastic, which is more durable and rigid than standard polypropylene. It has a non-stick anti-microbial coating that reduces sticking of litter to the scoop. The scoop’s sharp leading edge sits flush against the box floor to scoop underneath rather than into clumped litter. The high side walls prevent litter from scattering. The scoop comes with a wall mount, and a 12 month warranty for any manufacturing defects.
I’m used to a much smaller scoop, so it took me a while to get used to the feel of this scoop, but once I got the hang of it, I loved how efficient it makes scooping. The non-stick coating even worked for freshly scooped clumps (since I work from home, and one of our litter boxes sits right outside my office, I tend to scoop pretty much as soon as Allegra or Ruby deposit something in the box.)
The QuickScoop Litter Scoop is available from Amazon with free shipping for Prime members.
PetFusion Large Litter Box with Non-Stick Coating
At 22.6 x 18.1 x 8.0 inches, this litter box is pretty much everything I think a litter box should be: it’s open, it’s large enough even for big cats, at 8 inches high, it’s higher than most boxes, and it has a lower entry for older cats. Unfortunately, it’s not high enough for my vertical pee’er Ruby, so we did not test this box. The non-stick coating is said to reduce sticking of litter up to 70%.
The PetFusion Large Litter Box with Non-Stick Coating is available from Amazon with free shipping for Prime members.
