Help filling in 2" gap

Postby aronoiiel » Tue Dec 03, 2019 9:32 am

So I have ceramic tioes but cannot find onew to fill the 2" wide 18" long gap I will have. Cutting tile is not an option for me so what would be acceptiable to pack that gap? I was thinking fleece as I have boat loads for my dog (only thing she sleeps with) that I can deep wash and take a roller to make sure no hair is left.
Was also thinking cardboard since I have crap tons from christmas shopping (regular brown shipping boxes not like package things like coffee pot boxes or somwthing.) Oooor I was thinking of cutting up the reptile carpet and layering it in the gap. But. I dont want Pumpkin digging in and getring stuck? Advice would be appreciate I am no good at home things lol

Get a piece of textured non adhesive shelf liner--- should be able to cut pretty simple

Should fill it in I would take some paper towels I use shop paper towels they are blue and put under my tiles to catch the watery urate- do the same w/ the shelf liner--- try it see how it works
Yes no squishy type!

Check out the bathroom/wall tile area - they have smaller tiles attached to a netting that you could cut off and use.

Hey there - didn't read all the answers you got - but here's one - some big box stores - or even tile stores - will cut a tile for you for under a couple bucks. Just call ahead and ask so you're not on wild goose chase

Pretty easy to cut tiles , a good straight edge and a pencil and a scribe are all you need to cut a tile
