    For all of you that are screaming at the tracking of litter and are looking into litter mats for outside the trays can I please point you in the direction of this one.....

    Pets at Home Litter Mat Grey Large | Pets At Home

    It comes in grey or a cream colour.

    I have tried many different litter mats and I am totally in love with this one!! Not only does it catch the litter off paws as the cats come out of the trays BUT it is easily hoovered up!! The main thing I found with other mats is that it is impossible to hoover them and the litter just sticks to them so after a while they stop workings!!

    I have the large one (they also come in small) and this is big enough to go under two litter trays which are next to each other and they are quite big trays too!

    HTH :)

    I use yoga mats. Cheap, easy to keep clean, and very effective. Cats jump down onto the mat, sinking in, then run across the mat (5 ft long) and the mat takes the litter off.

    The mat shouldn't go under the litter box, incidentally, it should go in front of the litter box. :)

    Sorry I said under as I have about an inch or so under the front of the tray to keep it steady and it also means it fits nicer in my hall but the majority of the mat is in front of the entrance/exit of the tray :)

    From what I can see, this looks like the mats I have gotten from ZP. They are very good but they are a bit small so don't catch all the litter.

    I might have a look at these the next time I pop into town and see how big they are (it's hard to work out with a 30cm ruler!!! :lol: ). For £10, I'd be expecting a decent size. :)

    I have one of those from PAH and they do make a difference, a lot of litter falls out when I shake it. Mine is cream though and although it's been washed still has stains on so the grey would be better.

    I got this in cream and cut it in half to go infront of my two boxes, if you use oko it doesnt catch all the litter (as far as i can tell nothing does :rolleyes:) but it does get alot and makes a huge difference.

    MB if it helps this is half of the mat in front of one of my trays, so double the size is fairly big.

    I also have this but mine is shapped as a semi circle, I've had it a year now and it still works. It is very good and does take litter off paws :)

    Thank you for that Sophiebee, that is a fair good size. I'll definitely be looking in my local shop for these. The material is the same as my smaller mats so I know it works from that perspective. :)

    i have two of the little ones from Zooplus but I gave one to my son as they were very small. I got the semi-circular one from Pets at Home and it's exactly the same construction as the ZP ones. They really trap the litter and can be shaken back into the little box. I only have to sweep up the tiniest bit of litter that escapes onto the tiled floor.

    Another vote for the big PAH one - in fact, I just bought a new one at the weekend!

    Absolutely LOVE them :D
