It’s actually bigger than most litter boxes and 2.0 is more spacious inside than the original. It looks smaller because it maximizes your cats’ space while minimizing the footprint in your home. Cats turn in circles and the corners of a rectangular litter box are wasteful; the narrow part of the rectangular box is also restrictive. Boxscoop is the same diameter in all directions so there are no restrictive narrow spots—cats can easily turn inside.
For more details, please see our size chart on the campaign page. It will give you an estimated realistic understanding for suitability.
It’s a top entry that isn’t. The access hole is huge and it feels completely open to a cat inside. Also, Boxscoop is designed to work with or without the cover.
You can introduce your cats with the cover off and when they’re fully comfortable add the cover, but usually it’s a moot point because often cats are curious and often climb into Boxscoop right away.
For most senior cats there is no problem but if you feel your cat would struggle, we do not recommend Boxscoop. Comfort, especially for these particular cats, is important.
As we gain momentum we plan to introduce a ramp that would be an add-on for arthritic and disabled cats. Support and share our campaign and we promise to make a comfortable solution for every situation.
We have changed the scoop design on 2.0 so the waste funnels easier off the ends and into smaller containers. That said, we feel it is still more efficient when using a litter locker to first toss the waste in a transfer container and then into the locker. It adds a couple seconds and offers no chance for mess.
Right now we are only offering Boxscoop in a modern matte white color. That said, as a stretch goal as we gain volume we will survey and add a second color. At the end of the campaign, if a second color option is available, we’ll send out another survey to allow you to select which color you’d like.
