I need help with ideas for a long handled cat litter scoop. My friend has bad back problems and is not able to bend over anymore. The longest handle I have found for a scoop is only about 2 feet. We need it to come up to her waist. We thought of going with a dog scoop, but think that the small peices wouldn't pick up. We also thought of getting a table to put the litter boxes on, but don't think the cats would tolerate it and we don't have much of a place to put it. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

My mother in law has back problems and owns a "kat." I took a handled sweeper/scooper (the one where the bucket's opening faces up when you lift it up on the handle) and drilled 1/4" holes on the bottom. She can just scoop as much litter as she can, lift up the handle, drain or shake the good litter and toss the mess.

There is another self sifting kind but with that one you have to lift the whole thing to pour it back into the other half after you lift out the sifter. Or else, they make sifting liners but that could get pricey if she's using one per day.
