All Rewards Have Been Shipped!! Woohoo!!!!

Thank you all so much for supporting our Kickstarter project for It's THE Scoop. We are very excited to announce that all of the rewards have been shipped out, and our campaign is officially complete!  

We would also like to thank you for your patience with the delays in receiving your rewards. The manufacturing delays came as a complete surprise to us, and we were disappointed to have to write the Project Update to let you know we would not be meeting the estimated delivery times.

Nonetheless, we came up with a fair way to send out the small batches of scoops we did receive, and kept you all informed every step of the way.

The Kickstarter Experience is different for each campaign. As a Backer you get to ride the roller coaster along with the project team. We had fun, and we appreciate all of you for sharing the experience with us and hanging through to the end. In a few more days when the packages reach everyone, we'll all be HAPPY SCOOPING!

We also want you to know that we took your comments to heart about the handle, and we are currently working on a prototype for the next version of the scoop, with a solid handle. We plan to launch the next scoop on Kickstarter as well, and we will let you all know well in advance of our launching!

Please feel free to leave a comment about how you like the scoop on the main Comments section so others visiting the page for the first time can get more firsthand testimony about the product.

Thanks again for your support, and we hope you all enjoy scooping!!

Your Friends at K-Kat,

Dennis, Ted & Marie

      Absolutely love the scoop. Thought that scooping wasn't a big deal but this makes it even easier! Can't imagine getting so excited over scooping poop.

      Linda, I saw your order come through with the discount, so you must have found the coupon :)
      Carla, I will be glad to look into this for you and I will follow up with a detailed message.

      Hi there, I was a backer with the package that had three scoops in it and I received one a long time ago, but no more since then. The first one works great and I'm really looking forward to the other two, can you tell me if there is a problem?

      Thanks, Carla

    4. Linda Mussoline on October 25, 2015

      Hi! I got Project Update #19 which said the backer discount is still available, but I cannot find the Sept 25th email. Is there any chance you could send it to me again? Thanks!!

    5. K-Kat Innovative Pet Products Creator on October 22, 2015

      Thanks, Anna! Glad to hear you like it.
      GuoQi and Debbi, I sent you messages to follow up.

      Hi I did not receive my "The Scoop". I went back in and completed the survey but have not heard back. Would you please help? Both of my daughters have received theirs & I'm so excited to get mine & use it!

    7. Anna Chipman on September 20, 2015

      Thanks for being so great! I got my scoop and really like it! The handle is a little awkward but look forward to using it more and I'm sure that I will get used to it.

      The product & tracking imformaton (Tracking Number: LJ851864603US) show me that the package now arrived at USPS Facility, August 14, 2015 , 1:19 am, CHICAGO, IL 60666. Today is Sep 18,2015, but i still not receive the package. Would it be possible for you to help me to check this package? thanks a lot!

    9. K-Kat Innovative Pet Products Creator on September 15, 2015

      @Julia, Thank You! So glad you guys love the scoop!!
      @Anna, I checked and indeed the scoop was sent to your old address. That was our mistake. We just mailed out another one to your new address. Hope you like it!
      @Shelia, it is great to hear that you love the scoop! According to the records, it appears you had only pledged for 1 scoop with the Early Birdie $10 Special. If you would like to order more, they are in stock and shipping daily from: http://tabbytownusa.org/scoop.html

      First, I absolutely love my scoop! Best scooper ever hands down. Second, I have never received my second scoop. I noticed the last update was a month ago so I figured i would have received it by now! Thanks.

    11. Anna Chipman on September 13, 2015

      I will try sending you guys a private message as well but I haven't received my scoop yet. I had updated my address a few months ago but worried that it might have gone to the old address. Do you have any tracking info for my scoop? I'm so excited to try it out!

    12. Julia Martinez on September 7, 2015

      It was well worth the wait!! My husband LOVES it!!! I love it, too!! Can't wait to give to my SisNLaw! Great product. The only thing i would like is perhaps smaller openings toward the back of the scoop for mimi-clumps. Other that that, I will definitely back another KickStarter!! Thank you!!

    13. K-Kat Innovative Pet Products Creator on August 31, 2015

      @Debbi, you are correct. Now that you filled out your survey, we'll send out your scoop right away.
      @Patricia, you still need to complete your survey so that we can send out your scoop. I will send you a message with more details.

      I have not received my scoop. Could you please check on the status? I think it was because I just filled out the survey. Thank you.

      I have not received my scoop. Can you please follow up with me on status?

      @Shani, I just sent you tracking info on your package.
      @Brooke, you need to fill out your survey so we can get your shipping address.
      Others, we love to read your comments on the scoop! Thank you for taking the time to write :)
      We do have several hundred scoops in stock right now and are sending them out almost every day. You can purchase them directly here: http://tabbytownusa.org/scoop.html

    17. Shani Sztrigan on August 17, 2015

      Do you have any estimated shipping times? Still waiting on mine, and I know being in Canada it can be slow, but would like to know a rough estimate :)

    18. Brooke Whicher on August 17, 2015

      I still haven't received mine.... :(

      My mom came over to kitty sit while i was gone for the weekend. When I got home, she called me "What the heck was that litter scoop?" I asked her why. "It is awesome! So fast!" Good thing I backed the 3 pack of those! I have already gifted one :) Thanks for making a cool product :) My kitties and I thank you.

    20. Donna Friedman Demeter on August 14, 2015

      Mine came today and of course I had to try it right away. Fortunately my cats had left some "deposits" in the boxes and this scoop did the job so quickly it was unbelievable. This is best scoop I have ever used and I'm definitely going to recommend it to all my friends who have cats. So glad I got in on this project and it was definitely worth the wait to get this fabulous scoop!

    21. Laura Rotunno on August 14, 2015

      Congrats on a FANTASTIC campaign. I use our scoop everyday and know I won't ever need another kind of scoop!!!!

    22. Cheri Causey on August 14, 2015

      I received my pair this week and LOVE them! Thank you! Definitely worth the wait.

    23. Jackie Slayton Methe on August 14, 2015

      Love the scooper my husband likes it so much he wants two more . We have twelve cats in our home and four that live in my studio so there is a whole lotta scooping going on . We would like two more so please inform us when ready to ship more , new handle , original handle , an efficient scooper either way . Kitties thank you too .

    24. Gaye Piechowiak on August 14, 2015

      I am so glad I ran across this project and that I was one of the 'investors'. This scoop is the best thing that ever happened to litter boxes and scooping.
      Faster, easier, no dust, strong and well made. If you have a litter box, you need this scoop!

      I liked my scoops so much that I ordered more. I'm thinking of giving one as a Christmas gift, although that seems a bit odd. I don't mind the handle. Tighter mesh in the back corner might be nice, but it really hasn't been an issue.

    26. Katie Neil on August 14, 2015

      Love this scoop - love it! I have been using it for three months now and cannot envision going back to any other design. The scooping dust cloud is non existent, the stuck to the bottom glue is easily lifted and it cleanly gets heavy loads out without messy breakage. Wonderful design. I have two large Maine Coons and this gets a good workout. As far as the drawbacks noted elsewhere, a silicone pot handle cover works well on the handle and a bit of twist tie woven in a back corner solve the bits transport problem. Hopefully these small issues will be improved in a future version . I will be first in line for the next iteration but I am very happy with this scoop.

      I love my scoops! I agree with Kathryn R. Jackson that "I do wish that maybe one small section of the bottom of the scoop had more closely spaced wires to catch those little pieces of litter that fall through the scoop." (She said it exactly so I hope it's OK to quote her!)

      Jeri Featherley on August 14, 2015

      I love my scoops!!! Handle seems fine to me. I gave one to my neighbour and she was thrilled and we both sent our plastic ones packing! Thank you soooo much!!

    29. Kathryn R. Jackson on August 13, 2015

      I received my Scoop early and have been using it quite a while now. I really like it and have no problem with the handle--I like its open design so I can hang it from a hook. However, I do wish that maybe one small section of the bottom of the scoop had more closely spaced wires to catch those little pieces of litter that fall through the scoop.

      Got my last two. Thanks!

      Been using my first scoop for a while now. Love the scoop, less enthusiastic about the handle. Certainly easy to clean, but not very comfortable.

      Thanks!
      Chris.
