The Dog Gone Smart No Pet Mess Mat solves the problem of messy litter scatter or any mess once and for all. This mat is a giant super sponge with the wicking power of millions of microfiber strands to pull excess litter or doggy off your cat's feet and trap it into the mat, keeping floors clean and dry. Unlike competing products, the No Mess Mat uses double basting even stitching which makes it a more durable product that won't come unraveled by use or washing. It fits nicely under standard litter boxes and can also be used under food and water bowls or at the front door to absorb any pet mess. The soft, microfiber material on this mat is gentle on pets' paws, and, unlike competing products, the heavy "gripper" nonskid backing keeps it in place. It's also easy to clean simply shake out the litter or machine wash.
