    Thought I would share my poop scoop solution in case it helps anyone since I hard a hard time finding something that worked. Got this metal kitty litter scooper from amazon. When we went to use it, found out it was only catching the larger poops, and missing the smaller stuff since the mesh was too large. I tried a reptile sand scooper, but it was too fine and taking out all the nice larger pieces of sand with it.

    I went to the local big box hardware store and found this black diamond shaped wire mesh sheet that is actually for putting in your gutters to keep out leaves. $2 later and some easy work with tin snips/wire cutters and some zip ties, a great scooper!
