The cat litter box mat is a very useful and practical accessory. If you have a cat at home, then you know how difficult it is to keep the space where your cat relieves itself clean. If you don't want sand scattered around the house, be sure to look for the best rug.
What are the characteristics of a good litter box mat?
After having tested some solutions, we identified the main characteristics.
- absorbent material: the carpet must be made of a material that absorbs moisture well, preventing wet sand from spreading throughout the house.
- suitable size: It should be big enough for the cat to move around in it and accommodate the entire litter box.
- Easy to clean: The rug must be very easy to clean, as we don't want to have another piece at home if it's not practical.
- Non-slip: It must have a non-slip surface to avoid moving on the floor.
- Durable: Sturdy and durable to withstand cat's daily use.
- Aesthetics: Having a nice design will harmonize with the home decor.
Our choice fell on the sandbox mat model that you see below. Well, it is undoubtedly one of the most practical and hygienic rugs on the market.
With a simple gesture, we remove the sand!
How does the mat work?
This mat is placed at the exit of the litter box and works as a feline dirt retainer, thus preventing sand from being spread across the floor when the cat leaves the box.
It is composed of two layers. The top layer with a honeycomb design traps sand, while the bottom layer acts as a reservoir for dirt.
The top layer is very soft and pleasant for your cat's paws, and as it is waterproof, it is also suitable for collecting the water that falls when drinking from the fountain. In addition, the mat is foldable in half, which makes it easy to store and transport when not in use.
Cleaning this rug is very easy and fast. It is collapsible into three separate pieces, allowing you to easily remove dirt. Just open the velcro and remove the parts for cleaning. You can also vacuum the rug and wipe it down with a dry or damp cloth. This ease of cleaning prevents bacteria from proliferating, ensuring a healthy environment for your cat.
Mat for Sandbox – Opinions
All the opinions of those who have already bought this rug are very positive. For example, we have a client who was concerned about the space taken up by the rug. She has 2 boxes and 2 cats and decided to use one of these mats for the 2 boxes! So she used half the mat in each box and the result was also surprisingly good.
This model is therefore extremely flexible to use.
