Wet cat litter can form clumps on your floor, which is not easy to remove.
However, there are several steps you can follow to remove wet cat litter from your floor.
Steps of removing wet cat litter off your tiles

How to keep cat litter away from your tiles
There are certain responsibilities you get when you own a cat.
You need to feed them, keep them occupied, healthy, and play with them most of the time.
I know you all agree that cat litter will not always stay in the litter box, no matter what you do.
Regardless of what you do: replacing the litter frequently or putting up a cat litter box, your cat will dig in vigorously in the litter box and spread the litter on your floor.
If wet, the litter can get on the fur and paws: the cat will spread the litter all over the floor within minutes.
However, you can follow the below tips to reduce the amount of litter your cat spreads on the floor.
Use a proper litter box
When you get litter on your tile every time, the first place to check is in your litter box; if it is open on the side or has holes!
You might have one of the best litter boxes: low-edge boxes, but they are the worst type for keeping litter inside.
Half the litter will be out if your cat digs. Therefore, you need to invest in the best litter box.
Buying a litter box with a ramp is the best move since it reduces the litter on your floor, making cleaning easy.
Using a litter mat
To avoid regular cleaning, you should use a litter mat.
Using a litter mat is the best way to keep litter off your tiles.
It is not a normal mat; it is designed with a textured surface suitable to capture and hold excess dust from cat litter and paws.
Select the right litter
The type of litter you use will determine the amount of mess on your tiles.
Smaller pieces of litter tend to easily get out of the litter box and stick on the fur and paws.
Therefore, go for a litter type that will make cleaning easy.
Regular cleaning routine
You can only get the litter off your tiles by cleaning regularly.
As long as you have a cat, you will always have a litter on the floor.
So, it is your responsibility to clean them as they appear.
You need to be ready to deal will all the messes that come with cats if you have one.
