Litter Trays

Quite simply, do you use litter tray liners or not? In either case, why?

I'm torn between whether I should (I find trays easier to clean with a liner) or whether I shouldn't (the girls seem to prefer it, and it does cut down on the amount of time Evie spends scratch-scratch-scratching in the tray).

Evie is having some rather odd (read: irritating) elimination problems at the moment, so I'm trying just about anything to get to the bottom of it.

I don't use them because I've found most cats get their claws stuck in it when they scratch and then the litter is in the bottom of the try anyways.. ;__;
(Or if they are like Grim, they will pull it part way out of the litter box and leave me a pile of kitty litter to clean up, Wheee..)

We don't anymore. Lola is a digger and even though her litter is 5-6 inches deep, she still will dig to the bottom so when we had the liner, it always got pulled up to the top anyway..

I don't use them with my four fur babies. They would rip right through them, I'm loving my buddha dome covered cat box with the ramps though, less litter tracking, and it seems like the bottom of the box has a slicker surface, making the clumping litter slip off the bottom super easy.

I don't use them for my singleton. I tried, but she decided she liked to chew on the draw strings. I was given a box of 40, used 2. Now I use them as garbage bags when I scoop-da-poop. Once they run out I'll be back to grocery bags.

I use generic kitchen trash bags and have no problems w/tearing. But if your cats tear through bags, you could line the bottom with old newspapers to help cut down on cleanup. Won't be as easy as a whole bag, but they won't tear either, so at least the bottom will be cleaner.

No, waste of money. If you are worried about the actual box getting dirty you can always wash it. My cats would probably just figure out a way to destroy it and make more of a mess.
