They leak, don't absorb well, basically don't work
on September 28, 2017
I have a cat that is urinating outside the litter box, and i use these pads to catch the urine. i have them positoned flat on the floor and also draped under the entrance to the litter box, under her entrance ramp. She is only 10 lbs and she urinates many times/day, so please note, this is not a large amount of urine, and it forms only a small to medium sized circle on the pad (it never fills the whole pad). My experience is that everything written in the product description is not true:
- "Each pad comes with five layers to ensure leak-proof performance." My experience: these pads are super thin. I have examined them carefully and I don't see how they could have 5 layers.
- "The anti-streaming top layer offers a quick-drying quilted surface that locks in wetness, reduces odor, and prevents tracking." My experience:
when my cat urinates on the pads i drape around the litter box entrance, the urine runs off instead of being absorbed. When she urinates on the pad that is flat on the floor, it seeps through the plastic and gets the floor wet. If she steps on a urine soaked pad, she tracks it onto the floor.
- "The surge layer keeps liquid flowing in the right direction, while the sponge-like core provides maximum absorption and turns liquid into gel upon contact. " This truly makes me laugh. There is no sponge-like core or gel action. The urine remains liquid, is not absorbed well by the pad, leaks out of the pad, and is easily tracked onto the floor when the cat steps on it.
- " The last two layers of the leak-proof pet-training pads--the locking layer and the protective plastic lining--keep floors safe from damage." My experience is that they leak every single time.
