    I have 8 cats, briefly went down to 7 but found a new kitten pretty quickly, this time last year I had 9.5, there is the odd grumble but they tend to ignore each other TBH ☺️

    Is there a way to 'manage' rubber mats to minimise them getting icky underneath?

    What mats do you have? I have green Equimats, 20mm and 28mm and don't notice any smell and when I've lifted them they aren't grim underneath? I use aquamax bedding on the top, not very thick this time of year and my muck heap is ace, the well rotted stuff (4 years plus) is better than shop...

    Spillers gro and win

    Cob fit but fat- help!
