Litter Tracking

I have two kitties who share a covered litterbox. The problem is that they track the litter all over the house. I find it in every room, on the couch in the bathtub and even on my bed sometimes. I love my kitties but this is driving me crazy!
Does anyone have any tips to keep them from tracking?

Two things really. The first is to use a different litter. I use Purina Maxx Cats. I think it's sold as Tidy Cats in the U.S., although I'm not sure where you're located. My girls (cats!) track a few granules of litter right outside the box, but they never track any more than that.

The second is to perhaps use some sort of mat outside the litter box, although I must admit I've tried several types of mats and I find they're more trouble than they're worth. So, I'd go with using a litter that doesn't track so much.

Dogs have owners. Cats have staff.

Actually I do use Tidycats Ive tried several different litters and that one seems to track the least, but my boy (he's huge, weighs almost 20 pounds) seems to track it everywhere anyways. My girl doesnt as bad.

I have a Bouda Dome Cleanstep litter box and it has been amazing so far at virtually eliminating litter tracking.

I just switched to wood pellet litter because I was tired of the tracking. I even had litter in my bed at one point. I moved the litter boxes to the living room instead of the bedroom and the pellets don't track nearlu as much. I love it, cheap and economical.

Are the wood pellets easy to scoop and clean up? Ive never used them before.
