How To Make A Profit With Cat Poop Inventions
Brian Turkalo quit a stable, well-paying job as a corporate salesman to deal with his cat’s poop full time — and he couldn’t be happier.
He is the inventor of LitterWorks, an automated system for getting rid of your feline’s feces without needing to scoop them up every other day. Manufactured in Matthews, LitterWorks is celebrating its second anniversary this month, having sold more than 1,000 units online.
The product works as a supplement to the popular LitterMaid (made by another company), which automatically rakes the litterbox after each use. But the LitterMaid must be emptied several times a week.
The LitterMaid sits on top of the LitterWorks, which holds up to two months of used litter and can also include a hood intended to reduce odor. Customers who already have a LitterMaid can purchase Turkalo’s invention separately. He also sells the two products bundled together.
“With our system, the waste passes to a new bag underneath the LitterMaid, so it could fill up for two months and not overflow,” Turkalo said.
