There is no denying that cats make for the most adorable pets. Whether you get ginger, a tabby, or a Persian cat, each has its own charm and strengths. However, no cat parent is unfamiliar with a universal nightmare that comes with cats of all species, ages, and genders; the nightmare of a messy house. If you think putting a leash on your cat is going to end all troubles, you may be quite mistaken. Leashed cats are often lazy and irate, so most of the time you’ll have to let them roam free. And since cats are such an agile species, they can climb across trees, dirt, sewage, and almost every imaginable surface. With this characteristic, cats get a hefty amount of mess on their paws and lower body areas. After a day full of adventures, when they walk into your freshly tidied living room, they first need a litter mat to prevent a mess. If you have no idea what that is, read below.

Cat litter mats collect all sorts of dirt and soiling from your cat’s body and absorb them so that they don’t stamp that mess all over your place. Considering the crucial nature of the product, it can be quite challenging to pick something that fits your scenario exactly. However, there’s no general rule of thumb when picking a litter mat. Instead, here are our top three considerations for narrowing down the rows of search results and market options:
A: Well, the method varies for each product. Most times, a cat litter mat only needs a change of the stuffing and a wipe with a clean cloth and antibacterial solution. Some other products follow a different lead. You may have to move them and dust them with a dry cloth. If the litter is heavier, you may need to vacuum it out of the mat. The best-case scenario would be if you can soak the mat, or chuck it into the machine, but only if the manufacturer allows it. Not all mats are machine washable.
A: Yes, it is! Most, if not all, cat litter mats are made of non-toxic materials and are BPA-free and so will pose no harm to your car (though we definitely recommend double-checking this when you’re making a purchase). Since cats also spend a good amount of time scratching their cat litter mats, you want to make sure that there’s no trace of a harmful substance anywhere near your mat, so ensure you only clean it with products that are safe to use around cats. A handful of cat litter mats are also non-slip. This means the mat won’t slide even if your cat jumps on it, so you don’t have to worry about your cat injuring herself.
