Independent inventor Bryan Chin felt that this was enough of an issue that he began development on just such an invention. He came up with the Turn & Clean Litter Box.
Turn & Clean Litter Box will replace the need to sift and sort through cat litter to gather soiled clumps and solid waste for removal. This dirty and smelly process can now be conveniently accomplished in a fraction of the time it would take by using a scooper. Turn & Clean Litter Box is a cylindrically shaped cat litter box that sits atop a base with a removable waste bin. The cylinder features an open portal on the front for pet entry and exit. The interior contains a grated, basket-like structure connected to the wall. This sifting basket is used to filter the litter. On the front face are two handles, which allow for easy rotation of the cylinder when turned in a clockwise direction. To clean the litter, the user would simply rotate the cylinder one full turn. During the rotation, the sifting basket rotates around the inside of the cylinder. In doing so, it passes through the litter, which remains at the bottom due to gravity. After passing through the litter, the sifting basket has filtered out the used litter clumps and solid waste while leaving the unused litter at the bottom of the cylinder. For removal of the waste from the cylinder, there is a door on the side of the cylinder, which has remained latched shut until this point. The one opened side of the sifting basket will align with the side door to facilitate removal of the waste.
