Pet Food Scoops
I use the green scoop for cat litter
I have a "cat litter station" that consists of three products from the Container Store:
-- A pet food container that I used to keep Cat Attract Litter (I only give my cats wet food, so I do not need a container for dry food).
-- A large men's clear shoe box, http://www.containerstore.com/shop?productId=10001753&N=&Ntt=men%27s+shoe+box, in which I keep bag for used litter and a bottle of Febreze Pet Spray
-- a scoop.
When I pour the contents of two bags of Cat Attract Litter into the pet food container, there is enough space left below the lid to fit in the box with bags and Febreze. Luckily, I bought the dark, opaque pet food container before they got discontinued, so my "cat litter station" blends into the decor - it is dark, and I have a lot of black trim in this area of the apartment. And, nobody would know what it is because it is opaque. When I scoop the litter, and I do it every time I have to leave the apartment, so it would mean several times a day, I open the pet food container, get the shoe box, open it, get a bag (I get the bags at the produce section at the grocery store), scoop the litter, tie the bag and put it next to the apartment door, go back to spray with Febreze if needed (with such frequent scooping, Febreze is not always called for), and then use the pet food scoop to pour more litter into the litter box. Then I put all my cat litter paraphernalia back into the pet food container and close the lid.
The scoop is good because it allow me to transport the litter without spilling it. The scoop's design is really smart - I carry a full scoop of litter without any spillage.
Thanks goes to the Container Store for selecting and selling useful, smart products. I recommend that the dark opaque pet food plastic containers be brought back.

Good pet food scoop
This pet food scoop is pretty good. It's cute, in fun colors. After about 2 years use, the handle did break. So it's not necessarily durable for the long haul, depending on how much you use it. I feed my dogs twice a day and have 3 dogs... so it got used quite a bit at my house. But it's a great gift or purchase for the pet lover. I liked it enough to get a new one. As others have said, the sticker is in a bad place, but I did mange to finally get mine off.

I was really happy with my purchase of dog food scoopers. Our two dogs (one male, one female) have different food containers, so this was perfect to purchase a different color for each one. I would definitely recommend these and the price was right.

Stupid sticker placement
1 star as it arrived unbroken (unlike another item in my purchase) and 1 star since it's cute. The sticker describing the item was placed in the middle of the scoop right over the place the measurements are shown. Not a problem if it would have come off! Even when carefully taking the sticker off, the paper separated from the "sticky" glue. Tried gently scraping with a fingernail, then soaking in soapy water and scrubbing with a sponge. /Some sticky reside came off. Finally resorted to goo-be-gone. By the time I was finished I had taken the sheen off the surface where the sticker was. That's ok since it will be used to scoop dog food but it was an awful lot of unnecessary work. Ok price but I would have paid double to receive one with a sticker that would actually come off. This was not up to the usual high standards of The Container Store.
