I am looking for a solution to reduce the tracking of cat litter all over my apartment, any suggestions?
I know they make mats to put under the litter box so that the litter falls off the cats paws into it, as opposed to tracking the litter everywhere. This is my problem with that though (well, 2 problems): my male cat tries to pee in the box but his stream is too arched and he ends up peeing behind the litter box – so I put newspaper under the box and change it when need be. I am worried that if I put a litter trapping mat under or near that area, it will become soaked with urine. The second potential issue is that my girl hops out of the litter box so quickly, she would probably jump right over any mat I put there.
I recently started using Fresh Step (which I have found disguises all odors and that is quite amazing!! These guys can be stinky!) but it is very fine, so I am finding that walking around (or even getting into bed… they track the litter onto my duvet and sometimes my sheets :( ) can be quite annoying on my feet. I vacuum at LEAST twice a day, sometimes 3 times! But my vacuum also doesn’t always pick it up so well.
Basically, I need a solution to reduce this tracking of litter everywhere. Help?
