Doesn't initially lay flat
July 5, 2019
We got ours a week ago and so far it seems to be living up to the hype. It does catch a lot of the litter, however our energetic kitten seems to be going for distance and spread in his litter scratching habits. This is our problem, not the retailer's. Evidently we need one in a MUCH bigger size, lol.
My only complaint is the way these are packaged and delivered. It seems the mats are stored and delivered in a two fold, 1/4 sized package. Though convenient for shelf space and delivery, it results in a mat that is far from flat. The bends have not flattened after a week and probably never will, since the mat is so lightweight. I decided to try spraying it with hot water in the bathtub while bending against the storage created bends. This seemed to have alleviated the very worst effects of the folded storage. In retrospect, I think soaking it in hot water for a while, then letting it "set" while flat, would be the way to go. Hope this helps any of you with low ceilings who want a flat mat and not a relief map of the Alps.
