My cats face aside here... lol! I had no idea I needed one of these contraptions until I had one! Total game changer! I hate the smell of cat litter and my cat was tracking it all over the place because he is a total jerk of a roommate and has no respect. For reasons unknown, I love him the mostest in the entire world, so I was resigned to just walking through kitty litter for the rest of my life. They could literally charge me anything for this and I would buy it. Now just to convince him to stop attacking me for no reason. Looking for that product next.
I bought two of the smaller sizes. One for each litter box. These work well. If I could go back in time, I would opt for the larger size. The ones I received were smaller than I anticipated. But they work great. My cats kick out a lot of litter. Why I have to use a Litter Robot. Combined with the LR stairs, these mats keep 98% of the litter contained. I just pick it up, and dump back into litter box every couple of days. One of my cats loves to nap on the mat.
This mat has made a huge difference in how much litter gets tracked around the house! I use a pine litter and it is pretty much dustless but it has larger pieces than the clay litter and 5 minutes after I sweep they have somehow managed to track it from one end of the house to the other! ( I'm pretty sure they curl up those little toes to see how much of it they can get spread as far away as possible) I wasn't sure if this mat would have holes large enough to catch the pine pieces, but it works great. I only had room for the smaller size, but if you have room I would go for the larger size. It's well worth the money!
At first I was a little hesitant when my husband bought this but after a while I loved it! Its not like the grass like plastic ones cat people buy that are super hard to clean. Its foam so kind of expensive for just foam but super easy to clean. When we want a fast clean we just open up the little slot and slide all the litter in the trash bag. You can probably find a cheaper one but in general this design is great.
I really like the mat, I have arthritis and it is stiff to scrunch together for me to empty, but that is not the company’s fault. It really does catch the litter that would otherwise be strewn about, I do suggest getting the larger mat that way you can tuck it under the litter box and the cat won’t move it. It has solved the problem.
