    The tracking of kitty feet and spillage when pouring litter creates the problem of litter grinding into carpeting, not helpful if your renting. I recommend putting a large tray under the litter box, the extra litter and the waste container. The kind of tray used under washing machines to catch water from spills works well. They are cheep, usually white plastic, with edges, & about 30″x30″. If it should break, it is easy to replace at a hardwear store or any place.that sells washing machines. They could also be used as a large feeding tray.
