As wonderful as Feliway is for stopping cats from not using their litter boxes, some cats never stop completely. There are times when accidents do happen, perhaps something unusual is going on in the home. Geriatric, sick, or convalescing cats often don't have the control they once had, or are too weak to make it to the litter box.
These are incontinence pads created for people. In 2004 when we bought 4 of them for our rabbits, we knew we'd found something that would benefit cats too. But first we wanted to test how well they hold up to multiple washings. We personally have pads which are now over 5 years old and have been washed countless times.
Our 4 bunnies: Ralph, Irene, Vivi, and Louie Louise, are about 90% litter box trained, but there are times when they sit on the old sofa in our packing room (supervising our every move of course!) that they'll pee outside the box. Needless to say, these pads get used by our rabbits heavily. We rotate and wash our pads several times a week. They wash up beautifully. With each wash they come back bright white and ready for more action!
We love these pads, we've found so many uses for them, including:
- covering for sofas, chairs, bedspreads, carpeted areas.
- great in rabbit and other small animal cages for easy clean up and to prevent sore hocks
- training dogs and puppies
- fold and place inside cat carriers
- drooling babies
- bed wetting adults and children
- for menstruating women - no more spotted sheets and mattresses
- line the trunk of your car to keep the upholstery clean
- take on a picnic or outdoor concert, better than a blanket!
- under & around a Christmas tree and you'll have instant "snow" which is super easy to clean up on January 1st
DO NOT BLEACH as bleach will break the fibers down and impact how the absorb. Fine for the dryer, but do not use high heat and do not over dry. Made in Canada just for us.
Some cats just can't help it and will have the occasional accident or incident of urinating on something. Protect beds, furniture, floors with our washable, waterproof pads. 30 x 34 inch bright white quilted waterproof pad with a special leak proof backing absorbs and holds 2 cups of fluid without soaking through. The pads are soft and pliable so you can arrange them in many ways to suit your needs. Because they are soft cats like to lay on them which also protects your furniture from unwanted fur. The pads are so handy, you'll find many uses for them and we give you some ideas on this page. The pads are meant to be washed and dried 100's of times which means they will last you many, many years. A bargain!
"A healthy 10 pound cat urinates 1 cup to 1 1/4 cups of urine per day. These pads will easily hold that much fluid and more.Anne Marie Benfatto, DVM
