Last week we reviewed the Litterbox.com Stainless Steel Litterboxes – you might have noticed the litter mat that was with them – The Litter Mat from Litterbox.com.
This cat litter mat is made of a litter-catching mesh material that’s durable and easy to clean (as you can see in our review video).
The PVC mesh woven material helps to catch little clay-clumping litter granules as seen in photos below.
It is super soft to the touch and helps to catch litter that your cat flings over the side of the litter box or that they still have on their paws as they exit the litter box.
We used clay-clumping litters while reviewing this littermat and typically always use clay-cluping litters.
The best cat litter mat is the one that works for you and your home – for example, some people cannot lift a mat on a regular basis – so it’s nice that this one does not need to be lifted and can be easily vacuumed instead.
I like that it was easy to clean when one of my cat’s vomited on it – it’s water resistant, so I shook off the litter scatter and then took the mat outside to rinse off the vomit with a hose.
It’s also easy to vacuum – but be careful when doing so – I easily vacuumed it with our Dyson V8 Animal stick vacuum, but when I used my Oreck upright on it, the roller brush on the Oreck was more powerful and therefore sucked the mat up into the roller brush and damaged the back side of the mat. However, you couldn’t see the damage on the front of the mat, and it did not effect it’s performance overall.
I also like that it’s anti-slip – so that you can step on it too if you need to without flying across the floor.
This litter scatter trapping mat comes in two colors – beige and grey.
As you can see, I put ours under our litter boxes just slightly, so that it captures anything that the cats carry on their paws out of the box or fling over the side.
This mesh trap cat litter mat measures 24’’ x 36’’.
Arrival Head’s Up
I would have forgotten to include this in the review, if I hadn’t re-watched our unboxing video (which I do before I write a review). So the fact that I forgot about it, shows how insignificant it was in the long run.
The only semi-negative thing I experienced with this litter mat, I talk about in the unboxing video below. When it is shipped to you, it comes folded (you can see that in the unboxing) which means it will have creases on it. It also smells heavily of chemicals when it arrives.
Litterbox.com suggests popping it in the dryer to get rid of the creases, however, I would suggest laying it out in the sun – that helped get rid of the odor as well as get rid of the creases. I wouldn’t want that chemical smell in my dryer anyway.
You can buy the Litterbox.com Litter Mat on their website.

Litterbox.com Litter Mat Product Review Video
We received the Litterbox.com litter mat for review from the manufacturer and also asked that they pay a small review fee. Receiving the free product and the review fee did not influence this honest post.
