It’s the weekend. You’re ready to head out of the house but there are still the weekend chores to do. If you’re like us, one of the dreaded chores on your list is cleaning the litter box. Do you just do it and get it over with? Or do you put it off until the last minute hoping your spouse or kids will step up to the task before you? Believe me, we have all been there. This is the scenario that led to the development of Litter Care™.
Last year, Jim and Cathy adopted two cute kittens that they named Daryl and Meryl. The deal was that Cathy was responsible for all litter box cleanup. One weekend, Cathy went out of town and Jim was left with that chore. After experiencing how nasty it was to clean the sticking, soiled litter he decided there had to be a better and easier way.
Now for a little background. We have been working in the coatings industry for over a decade, and faced with the challenge of the litter box cleanup we experimented in the lab to see if we could make a safe, easy, and effective coating for the litter box. What we came up with is Litter Care™ - a coating that works great at keeping the soiled litter from sticking to the litter box and is also pet safe and environmentally friendly (this was for our own kitties, after all.)
As our prior coating product development was for industrial use, we didn’t know a whole lot about launching a product for personal consumer or home use, but we were excited to share our new development with other pet owners. We created our company, Critter Technology, to market and sell our products. Litter Care™ is our flagship product with others planned for down the road.
We have Meryl and Daryl to thank for the development of Litter Care and for making our (and hopefully your) lives a little easier. Litter Care makes litter box cleaning so much easier that it is a great motivator for getting the chore done so we can all get out and enjoy our weekends!
