I was just wondering Teddy and Shorty always get the kitty litter stuck in bewteen their toes and on the bottom of their paws we have tried every kind of litter possible to prevent this problem from happening but the problem continues to happen so I was wondering how to prevent this?

There's really no way to prevent the litter from getting between their toes. They dig in it so it's just going to go between their toes. You can try something like Feline Pine that is in pellet-form. The pellets are much less likely to get stuck. Otherwise, you can try one of the many cat litter mats designed to stop litter tracking. They usually have surface textures that either brush the litter away or open up the paws to help the litter fall away.

Feline Pine because of its pellet form can help...but its really impossible to keep litter out from between the toes. Use a mat in front of the littler box where the cats walk out. There are several kinds but the ones that have a texture help wisk away the little particles of litter. Even a piece of "fake" plastic turf can work to reduce the "sandy paw" syndrome.
