It’s adorable when your cat gets the “zoomies.” But, it’s not as adorable (or sanitary) when you have to clean up the tiny but annoying litter particles that spread all over your floor when your cat leaps out of its litter box. Instead of sweeping and vacuuming every day, there’s an easier solution to the problem: using a cat litter mat to trap the cat litter.
Save time and energy by incorporating an affordable, sanitary, safe, and convenient cat litter mat into your home. Here are some we recommend when it comes to simplifying your cat litter cleaning routine.
Choosing the Right Cat Litter Mat
Keep these things in mind when selecting your cat litter mat:
- Size: Cat litter mats come in various sizes to fit your needs. Whether you need to accommodate for a small space or for multiple cats, be sure to check the dimensions of your cat litter mat.
- Material: Your cat’s health and comfort are important. The ease with which you can clean a cat litter mat is important, too. Look for a mat that is phthalate-free, soft on your kitten’s paws, and waterproof.
- Color: You don’t have to sacrifice your decor to utilize a cat litter mat. A wide variety of colors are available to you when choosing a mat that’s right for your home.

Just use the easy-open edge to remove the mat’s contents. Durable and washable, this mat does the sweeping for you by just resting under the litter box. Plus, it comes in two sizes and three colors.
