Can anyone recommend a metal cat scooper, but with much smaller holes? I have a metal cat scooper, but find it's not great at catching the smallest of clumps?

Talking something almost as small as a Food Sifter?

Depends on what type of litter you are using. One member on here (@Notacrazycatlady) may have been able to use a food sifter - strainer - on the litter she uses. It was: Arm and Hammer Clump and Seal.

Those Of You Who Use Clumping Litter

I tried one of those on mine - Fresh Step Unscented - and the holes were too small. Never have found anything in between the standard cat litter scoopers and the food sifters/strainers.

Hope you have better luck, and I will be watching to see if you do!!!

Edited: Btw, I get as much as I can with a regular scoop, and then use a disposable, washable plastic spoon to scoop out the tiny left over debris. Kind of tedious, but it works!

I did find this one:

Yes, the standard one from Petco works fine for me with Fresh Step. It's tedious to pick up the crumbs, but it will do it.

I use a slotted spoon picked up in the grocery store kitchen wares. I find metal works best if you can find it, because it won't bend and is slightly pointed for getting the clumps. Sometimes kit digs all the way to the bottom of the box and it sticks.

I use a long handled noodle skimmer to pick up the fine bits.

That's it! I was gonna suggest looking in the kitchen section for a thing with small round holes but I didn't know what it was called. So I'll second (third, fourth?) that suggestion.
