Hi

Has anyone have this problem?
I've caught my tigger 3 times coming out from his litter tray and has step on his poo, bloody leaving prints. Thank god i notice it straight away and i was at home to clean it up.

Maybe I need a extra extra big tray?

:evil: :evil: :evil:

I just had a new litter box delivered last night. The size is "giant" and I also have an uncovered storage bin as their back up. I have never seen evidence that they had stepped in poo so maybe go larger and see if it helps. I also give them probiotics everyday so their poo is solid and not really trackable.

Yes, go to the pet store, find the biggest tray they have... then try to find one a little bigger than that :lol: seriously!

If I'm home, I can hear Raiden in the litter box, digging his way to China. I will usually come and check the consistency of the poo -- sometimes it can be mushy at the end, although they checked a sample and there is nothing there. I usually lift him out of the box of put my hand over the mound so he can just jump out. Sometimes he will find a pile of leaves back behind the fence and poop there, which is fine with me. Something less for me to clean up.

Bigger litter trays can help, but it seems that Babbage was just careless with this - I say was because it hasn't happened for quite some time - perhaps he's finally worked out how not to stand in his own poo. ? :-))

At least being a bengal, when it happens you can lift them up, put them in the shower, wash them down and they think its all a game.

Mine kick it everywhere to annoy me when we sit down to have our dinner.

Immediately they will both be in litter trays digging, scraping and litter flying everywhere! Sometimes there a poo and sometimes not.

They seem to get very excited when I get the dinner out!

This 33 gallon tote has worked very well for me. I cut a door into it using a soldering gun. Here is a picture from 2 years ago of my kittens:

Raiden definitely needs a larger litter box but where I have it, there is not a lot of extra room. He gets a very tiny portion of a wall in the utility room which is tiny and has the washer, dryer and water heater in there.
