How does the ScoopFree litter box work?
Load it: Lift the box and slide in a disposable litter tray. The trays are filled with crystal litter that reduces odor 5x better than traditional litter.
Leave it: No scooping needed! ScoopFree automatically rakes waste into the covered trap, so you can leave it alone for weeks at a time.
Toss it: Every few weeks, throw away the old tray and replace it with a new one.
Has the litter formula or quality changed since ScoopFree moved to PetSafe?
The packaging may have changed, but the litter trays have exactly the same litter crystals your cat knows and loves. We're always working to improve our products based on your feedback, so we may upgrade the litter formula in the future.
What are ScoopFree litter crystals made of?
The blue crystal litter is made of a silica gel. The crystals are non-toxic and perfectly safe for people and animals if eaten accidentally. Silica gel is an inert substance that’s mined from the earth. A derivative of silica gel is used in many powered drinks and soups as an anti-clumping agent.
If your pet eats a couple of crystals or small bites of litter, he should be perfectly fine. Just provide your pet with water. The crystals will pass through his system.
However, you should make sure your pet doesn't eat a large amount of litter. Contact your vet if you notice any changes in your pet's behavior or health or if you suspect your pet has eaten more than a few bites of any type of litter at one time.
If your dog often tries to eat your cat's litter, you can take extra steps to keep your dog out of the litter box.
Use a hood with the litter box.
Set the timer to sweep 5 minutes after your cat uses the box (for ScoopFree Ultra boxes).
Put the litter box somewhere your dog can’t get to it, such as in a closet or on a raised shelf.
Put the litter box in a room your dog can’t get in by closing the door and adding a cat door.
Use a pet proofing spray or barrier to keep your dog away from the litter box area.
Can I reuse the litter tray by throwing out the old litter and adding new litter?
Using the litter tray for more than 30 days per cat may result in urine leakage and tray breakage.
How big are the litter trays?
Litter trays are 22” x 14-1/2” x 2-1/2”. The usable litter bed area is 14” x 14”. ScoopFree Free litter trays do not include lids and can be nested, allowing them to be stored in a smaller space.
How do I change the litter tray?
When the litter is saturated or the waste trap is full, simply place the cover on the used litter tray and throw it away. Replace the used litter tray with a new one.
How can I make the trays last longer?
ScoopFree litter trays won't last forever, but each tray can give you up to 30 days of freshness without scooping. Here are a few tips to make each tray last even longer.
- Have at least 1 litter box per cat. Many experts recommend having 1 litter box for every cat plus an additional litter box. 3 cats can use the same ScoopFree litter box, but you'll have to replace the trays more often and you might see litter box bullying.
