    Well, to be more precise, it's not *literally* a kitten that's doing the
    urinating here, but rather two full grown cats. (The long story is...)
    My intention is to modify (or replicate) the decor mats currently being used
    to protect the carpet in our hallway, such as to _stealthily_ incorporate
    the moisture-sensor mat. This will be not only for the learning needs of
    the offending cats, but also to minimize the likelihood that a certain human
    might otherwise object to the 'operation' without giving it time to reach
    success. For as most do-it-yourself 'engineering' goes in my experience,
    anticipate plenty of trial-and-error based refining and tweaking before it
    performs "in the real world" for me as conceived.

    Yes. But I couldn't find any such products for kids that uses a pad which
    covers any appreciably sized area. A google search listed product after
    product in which the sensor "pad" is no more than a few square inches; just
    enough to fit in the diaper. Of course, I didn't check out everyone of the
    thousand or so Google search results so... If you know of such a product
    which employs a sensor pad that actually employs some spread-out like
    surface area, I would be eager to know the name of it.

    Thank you for this earnest piece of advice.

    Ken :)
