Having a cat is amazing! Having cat litter tracked all over your house is not. If you think there's no way to prevent this, we have great news for you! There are a number of things you can do to keep litter from being tracked to other areas of your home.
If it's a lightweight litter, it's more likely to cling to your cat and get tracked to other parts of your home. Heavier litter will have a hard time sticking to your cat and will usually fall back into the box as soon as your cat lifts his paw.
Another problem with litter that causes it to get tracked through the house is the small granule size. That's why you should consider using a pelleted litter.
When the litter rapidly clumps in response to moisture, there's nothing leftover to cling to your cat's fur.
A high-sided litter box is a great way to keep cats from throwing litter over the edge as they're digging.
Top entry litter boxes have a rough screen on top where the cat has to step before getting out. This screen helps clean your cat's paws and the litter falls right back into the box.
Litter mats are specially designed to trap stray litter to keep it from getting tracked around your house. They have soft surfaces that gently remove litter from the bottom of your cat's paws.
If you want to try an easy way to reduce litter tracking, considering cleaning out the box two to three times a day instead.
