  • It's annoying. You can hear them in there scratching, scratching, scratching for 30 minutes. It's covered already!!

  • I have a really big litterbox. It's not meant as a litterbox - it's one of those Rubbermaid containers that are meant to store things under the bed. It cuts down on the amount of litter our cat flings out of her box.

  • We HAVE a covered litter box and our cat STILL gets litter everywhere! My dh is ready to put the cat outside permenantly (he also shreds toilet paper everytime we close him into our bedroom which is connected to the bathroom; ei "on-suite"), but I refuse. Anyway, in our case, the litter gets stuck to the bottom of his feet and/or between his toes then when he walks out of the bathroom (where we keep the box), he tracks it across the floor! I have NO idea what to do??? I know they have those mats that go in front of the box, but I'm not too sure one would help...anyone know?

  • We have a covered box, which helps a little, but we put a carpet remnant down in front of the litter box to trap most of the litter that comes out on their feet.....and we vacuum a lot.

  • I am going to have to try a rug or something around it. I can't put her outside there's way to many strays in our neighbor hood and way to many cat fights!
