These best cat litter mat reviews take up 6 products that are good candidates for the title. What does make the best cat litter mat, though? Aside from price-friendliness, there’s the quality of manufacture, the durability, and the actual effectiveness. Is it properly made and in such a way that you know it won’t fall apart after a bit of over enthusiastic scratching from your cat? Will it actually reduce litter tracking? Does it look good enough or does it just turn your litter box corner into more of an eyesore?
These are all questions you have to ask when looking for a good litter mat. Fortunately, we found the answers:
The best mats here are the Smiling Paws Cat Litter Mat and the Cat Litter Trapper. Both are great performers and big enough to cover most of the “landing zones” outside of the average litter box, though the Smiling Paws is five inches longer. They’re both easy to clean, but here again the Smiling Paws is a little easier.
The Cat Litter Trapper is made of ethylene-vinyl acetate, whereas the Smiling Paws is made of a unique commercial grade vinyl with no harmful chemicals such as BPA. Both are waterproof. The Cat Litter Trapper only comes in one color - black; whereas the Smiling Paws is available in three colors (black, grey and brown), which offers more interior decorating options.
The Smiling Paws product is priced so much lower, that those who need multiple litter mats or those making a litter box runway can do so efficiently without breaking the bank.
