I use a tote that I cut part of the front out ant it faces sideways on a shelving unit. I keep a rug under it with the part closest to the wall and front hiked up and a smaller mat coming out so it catches what the larger rug misses. I just shake it right back into the tote every couple of days.

I was going to post a thread about this.

My cats are horrible with litter. It's ridiculous. I changed the litter boxes to 35 gallon totes with the hole cut 8" from the floor. I turned them against the wall hoping that would help with the litter going everywhere. I also have rugs under the totes.

It's really getting old having litter every where. I have 3 cats 2 kittens. It wasn't too bad when I had only my 3 adults but two bottle baby kittens and obviously too attached to kick them out the door. lol

So I considered getting a mat. However, then I remembered my mom's house. She has some high sided bins used as cat boxes because her cats are little monsters about litter pollution. They still fling it out of those somehow. This is when I realized cats will find a way to get their way.

I use a bath sheet (extra large bath towel). It catches most of the litter, washes easily and is easy to recycle the litter back in the box.

I currently have a litter mat and I have to end up using the hand held vacuum BC if I don't I find litter all around the house.
Couch, bed, table lol every where.

He's still a kitten so I'm hoping he gets better about cleaning his toe beans.

I saw this black hole litter mat on Amazon and I can't wait to buy it. Anyone tried it?

This is one reason I prefer pine pellets. I HATE the dust and tracking from scoopable litter.

I've used rubber mats and regular bath mats and neither work very well. The rubber just doesn't catch it all and the bath mats get peed on. I guess they think it's an extension of their litter box. I keep a small whisk broom and dustpan next to the box.

If you get this mat let me know how it works. I'm always willing to try something new!

I have spent my share of $$ on expensive litter mats, and by accident I found a cheap outside mat and was amazed at what a good job it did. I got it at Walmart for maybe $2-4 dollars, and it is not very big so I have several of them around the litterbox. The litter sticks to the mat really well as they step out of the box. They also have a smaller version of the same rug for $1.99 at Ikea. I have to say, they work better than the $35 mat that I have near one of the litter boxes.

That and I agree with the person that says lots of sweeping.
