Expen Question

Alright I bought a 48in expen today from Petco. I was wondering if there was any type of attachment either someone has bought or made for the bottom of it. Sort of how the metal crates have the removable tray at the bottom?

I got a heavy duty tarp off Amazon, covered the area the ex-pen was going to go over and then just taped down the edges of the tarp. Worked really well for me. Normally, I'd just do bare floor, but I'm in a rental and the landowner frowns on messes of any kind on his floor. Not to say I didn't take the pup out often enough that that was ever a problem. But he still frowned on the idea of the floor being unprotected.

PetEdge I think or maybe Foster and Smith, have a puppy play pen for whelping litters. For the 48" they use two trays, 48x24". I think you could probably buy the replacement trays for that separately.

Another thought would be a rubber stall mat, from I think Tractor Supply. I think they are 6'x4', but you could probably cut one down to size, and I think they are about 35$ on sale.

Could not find the one with pet edge or FNS. I actually have a extra stall mat in my garage which I've tried to use but I want use the expen as a 5' octagon. I was hoping they had a moulding which would fit it.
