Jan Smiles at Smiling Paws

Taylor:  You would not believe the problems encountered to write this post.  And they all were caused by Winton.  You remember Winton. We wrote a whole post on how he was trying to keep us from downloading photos from our camera and processing them.  (Winton in the Doghouse)
Cyndi:  But Jan persevered through ice and snow and mountainous trails -

Micah:  What are you babbling about, Cyndi?  I think you're picking up Marcus's trait of exaggeration.

Cyndi:  Well, she did persevere through the heat and humidity.

Micah:  Okay, I'll give you that.  But no more fibbing.  Just tell the truth.

Percy:  We're supposed to be talking about the above photo.  Do any of you know what it is?

Rusty:  Yes, it's a litter mat.  An extra large litter mat, as you can see. 35" by 23.5". We have large pans and there is plenty of room on the mat for us to leap out and leave any litter stuck to our paws on the mat. 

Percy:  Jan likes it because it does catch those stray pieces of litter.  Every so often she just takes it outside and shakes the loose litter out of it. 

Cyndi:  As you can see, Rusty slept through the first photo session.  Here he is next to the extra large Smiling Paws Cat Litter Mat before Jan unrolled it and let it relax (flatten) on top of Marcus's crate for a few days before putting it to its intended use.

Taylor:  Some cat evidently read that the loofah like material is urine proof and decided to test it because while it relaxed on the crate, Jan wondered why Micah was using it for a scratching post one evening.  Actually, that wasn't what he was doing. To this day, Jan doesn't know which male was responsible and we're not tattling.  Micah, did you do it or were you just trying to cover Percy's pee?

Micah:  I don't pee and tell.  Not on myself and not on Percy.  Suffice it to say, Jan had only to spray it with cleaner, take it outside and hose it well.  The urine did not leak through the thick mat and drip on Marcus's bed in the crate.

Cyndi:  Jan loves this mat.  All the ones she has tried before have been much smaller.  It's good quality, is BPA free and has an anti-skid backing.

Micah:  It also has a money back guarantee if you are not satisfied.  Jan is very satisfied with ours.

Percy:  The nice people at Smiling Paws are offering 20% off on all orders on Smiling  Just use the coupon code "funnyfarm".

Disclaimer:  We received a litter mat for this review, but no other compensation.  Any opinions are our own - and we are very opinionated!


  1. Let's me know if it works !
    Mine won't trap any thing because me run out like a bullet and tiny little pieces go with me...Like I leave a trail for mom...MOL

    My new blog address : 

  2. OMC THAT is a super Duper Litter Scooper pan mat. That was a grrrrreat review of it. Glad that it is making Miss Jan so happy, TOO.

  3. Oh, this mat works as our nap time mattress! Glad Jan is happy about the product!!

  4. That does look like a darn nice mat!

  5. That looks like a very good idea. I like to see how far I can scatter my litter.

  6. That looks like a fine mat.

  7. What a great mat!!! Thanks for sharing your review!

  8. Thanks for leaving some words of comfort when we lost Cookie. We miss him.

  9. We like your not pee and tell policy! That shows you are very ethical!

  10. That looks like a great mat!!! We could really use one like that.

  11. That is a super-duoer catch all mat! Pipo could sure use one or two of those...he stands in the box with front paw and lets it go...and the pee is um...well not where it belongs. That mat might be able to contain it way better than the set up meowmy has improvised with towels and litter mat(a small one),...and each day she has to make sure its all dry...but then when its wet...eeuuwww! We even have covered and doored litter boxes.

  12. That mat looks like a good one. We especially like that it is so large, and anti skid!

  13. That looks like a great mat. M is going to look in to getting one. She just has to five out how to flatten it before use. Since we moved, there isn't really anything we can hold it down with.


Thanks for coming by for a visit. We love to hear from you.
