Petlinks Litter-Catching Cat Box Mat

Posted on 4 July 2017 in Litter Box Mats

The Purr-fect Paws Cat Litter Mat from Petlinks comes in several different sizes and colors to match your decor and space. The mat captures and controls litter from scattering away from kitty's paws as she leaves the box.

We use these litter mats and they are pretty effective. While they don't have the tacky surface or flexiblity of a yoga mat, they are sturdy and can withstand a good scrubbing and cleaning when needed (yoga mats are disposable).

These cat litter mats have deep circular impressions that catch litter before it can scatter onto the floor. It's great at catching and holding litter in place and makes clean-up with a dust pan a breeze.

Choose from medium, large, or extra large mats to fit the space you need to cover. These quality mats come in tan, grey, or blue, to match your decor. The medium mat is shown here in tan.

Natural Litter Box Attractant

Posted on 9 May 2017 in Litter Boxes & Supplies

If you are having trouble getting your cat to use the litter box, several issues may be at influence. A check at the vet is a good idea for a start, in case your kitty is having a medical issue like bladder stones that make urination painful. After a medical check, you might try using a product like this one to get kitty on board with litter box use.

Dr. Elsey's Ultra Litter Attractant is a natural and biodegradeable product designed to prevent litter box aversion. It can be used in clumping litter as a natural attractant to cats.

Owners who have successfully used this product have made other changes to their kitty's environment to encourage proper litter box use, including moving the box to a new, more preferable (to kitty) location, and changing the style of box (from covered to uncovered, for instance) along with using different types of litter.
