I never have to scoop anymore. We found these Alfapet sifting litter box liners at Walmart, and they are great. It's a set of 10, and you just line the litter box with them. Then once a week or however often you want, you lift one up and all the clean litter will fall through the holes onto the next liner. Then you just throw the top one away and add some fresh litter. We almost never smell our litter box now.
