FASTEST! DUSTLESS! DURABLE!

This is not just another Litter Scooper... It's THE Scoop!

Millions of people love cats and share their homes with them. But ask any cat owner what they dislike most about having a cat in their home, and they’ll most likely tell you: "SCOOPING THE LITTERBOX!"

We have the answer: It's The Scoop is lightweight, zinc-coated metal that is easy to clean and perfect for multi-cat families and professionals!

There's no need to shake it when scooping because the litter falls right through the round tines, so there's NO DUST! All you're lifting is the waste.

It’s The Scoop is the last scoop you will ever need, and it's guaranteed!

Background

Living in a house they converted into a cat rescue for over 10 years, Ted and Marie Glover understand the challenges of cat care better than most. The daily task of scooping litter was taking over an hour every day, and something had to change.

They tried every different type of litter scoop out there, only to find copycat designs that didn’t solve the problem: the “panning for gold” action necessary to sift the litter from the waste, which is time-consuming and raises dust and allergens into the air.

Ted’s artistic ability and mechanical background brought vital know-how to design the perfect scoop, and after two long years, the first prototype was delivered. They were able to cut scooping time down from over an hour to just 20 minutes, and there was NO DUST!

Ted and Marie’s son, Dennis, joined K-Kat in 2013, making it a real family business. They did a test run of 1,800 scoops, and have had fantastic feedback from their cat rescue network and from selling It's The Scoop at local cat shows. They are now ready to make their first big production run of 5,000 scoops and need your help to make that happen!

K-Kat needs to raise $10,000 to pay for half of their first big order.

If more money is raised, they can pay for the entire order, or even a larger one, in full!

Here is the original 1-minute video about It's The Scoop:

Meet The Team

K-KAT LLC, is a family-owned company, specializing in innovative pet products focusing primarily on cats. We approach inventing as problem solving. Our background and living situation make us uniquely qualified for this role.

K-KAT president Ted Glover lives in a two-story, remodeled farmhouse and cat rescue,Tabby Town USA Inc., with his wife, Marie, the Mayor & Executive Director of Tabby Town. Tabby Town is a nonprofit, no-kill cat shelter that houses 50 to 80 cats at any given time.

Living in a cat rescue with Mayor Marie, the cat expert, has led Ted to design and build innovative pet products - everything from overhead suspended runways to exterior cat habitats and useful items for cat care.

Their first cat care item, It's The Scoop, was designed for cat professionals and folks with multi-cat households.

Son Dennis, who donates half his time to running the African Youth Movement in Sierra Leone, joined K-KAT in 2013, as CFO. He not only brings youth and enthusiasm; but a much-needed business acumen to the company.

Risks and challenges

We have critiqued each sample scoop sent from our manufacturer, and recently we received the newest sample which met our specifications perfectly, so we anticipate 100% quality on our upcoming order.

We have deliberately chosen conservative ship dates in order to have the opportunity to exceed your expectations on delivery times, in case there is any unforeseen delay in getting your rewards to you.

We have taken care to research our shipping options as much as possible in advance to have a clear sense of the variables in cost. We will send out frequent updates to our Backers on the order status and shipping out rewards.

We are confident in our ability to deliver, and we are the type of team that doesn’t give up when we reach a roadblock. Any challenges that arise will be dealt with swiftly and our Backers will be updated right away.
