My cat has a way of storing kitty litter between his toes and tracking it through the house.
I just saw a mat with lots of plastic points (think tiny bed of nails) that is supposed to go outside the box and cause the litter to fall off.

Anyone have experience with them and do they work? Other ideas welcome!

Thanks,
Ted
I use them no problems gets about 75% off

Yes, they work. You may have to experiment with a few different styles to find one your cat won't just jump over.

They don't work very well. The cats hop over them because the points hurt their toes, I think. Then the litter goes even further. Also they are hard to clean.

Depends on the pad. I have this one:
that works well. Cleaning it is as easy as dumping it over the trash.

This one:
I had to get rid of because, as you said, it apparently hurt my Delany's paws so she simply jumped over it.
I would have gotten this one:
if they had it when I got the tray pad last Spring.

I have found that if you use a litter like "yesterdays news", you will not have any problems with tracking. Its more expensive, but worth it in my opinion.

Go to K-Mart (or similar store) and get a small throw rug to place in front of the pan. It will catch the litter on the paws. MLB
Um, I like that idea. But neither Hyperbole nor the Princess of Tasmania has any truck with gizmos that help them remove litter from their paws.
I tend to wonder that if the litter (I use "Fresh Step") smells good enough, they don't care if they track bits of litter through the house.

(Of course, the obvious scientific experiment, which I could submit to "The Journal of Irrproducible Results", is not something I would care to do.)
