Q: What is the best way to keep area around litter box tidy?

April 3, 2008 | By Brenda P. | 13 answers | Expired: 2193 days ago

I live in an apartment and unfortuneatly the only place to put the litter box is in a carpeted room. I am worried about keeping the carpet clean with the cat kicking litter out of the box. Any suggestions?

I have placed an astroturf (the thick kind) "welcome" mat, sized a little larger, under the litter box. The litter goes into the fake "grass" and "holds it". I then every few days take the mat out and shake it to get rid of the collected litter. Hope this helps!

I use the black welcome matts, the ones that are kind of bristly so it wipes off their feet as they exit (use a hood so they can only exit in one spot). It's easy to clean because it's rubber. You just tap out all the litter it catches and spray it with water.

I use a puppy pad underneath my cat's litter box. There are also special brush like mats that help pick up the litter when it is kicked out. My cat is really messy, I use a covered box and everything. If not, she would knock the whole thing over in the floor.
