On July 4, 2017, Eastside Cats dumped out all old litter, and scrubbed down the litter pans. After they dried off in the blazing, hot sunshine, the pans were repositioned in their locations and filled with brand new litter. In addition, fresh puppy pee pads were attached to the walls surrounding said pans, and litter mats were shaken out and replaced.
Four litter pans, which seemed appropriate for July 4. Liberation!

Then, Chucky developed constipation, and he avoided the pans for going #2. We didn't know what his issue was, so I set out seven different pans, and filled them with different litters. Once we discovered that medicine and food changes were the solution, I winnowed it down to three pans. But Chucky started to urinate up the walls, so I found a big, oval pan to round out the situation. He still aims 'high' once in awhile, therefore the puppy pee pads.
I discovered The SmartCat Ultimate Litter Mat years ago, and bought two. Disclaimer: I was not reimbursed or given anything for free for my opinion! The litter falls through the mesh, and you simply shake the thing out. Nothing in the world keeps all of the litter off of one's floors, but this litter mat works well enough. One side is tan, which matches well with the hardwood; the grey side is used between the two pans in the front room. They are big too; 24" x 36". I recommend them!
