peeing RIGHT outside the box

This morning, there was some pee in the twins' room on the litter box mat - and it's only where they had spilled some litter out - so really I'm hoping it's only because of that! They had peed inside the box, too, so that's a good sign (right?).

If it's the first time this has happened, I wouldn't worry too much. I've had this problem too. Mine started doing it more often, so I removed the mat in front of the box and then they stopped. If they do it again, try taking the littermat away. It's nice to have it there, but if they are peeing ON it, you're better off without it.

That happened to me too as my cats were growing up. I caught Ariel doing it once and she was actually in her litterbox when it happened, but her butt was just an inch over the edge. She actually looked really surprised when she turned around to cover up her pee and couldn't find it. My theory is that they just sort of outgrew their box - or they had a really poor sense of where their body was in space. After a couple of weeks they stopped peeing over the edge, but I bought them a bigger box anyway.

It's a BIG covered litter box. I'm hoping it's just a one-time thing - that maybe it was because of the litter scattered outside. If they would stop their death cage fights in the litter box, it would help. I keep reminding them that they're girls!

It's an adventure every day going home to see what's happened while I'm at work.

I just told my mom yesterday that sometimes, I like to delay going home from work because as long as I haven't arrived there to see with my own eyes what's occurred, I can imagine that they are all being as good as gold...cuddled together sleeping, cleaning each other, playing happily with THEIR TOYS and not getting into anything.

My reality never matches my fantasy.

If you stayed home you'd find they did all their mischief in the first 10 minutes after you left and spent the rest of the day sleeping.

I believe it - I wake all four up every day when I get home.

This happened with Muffin once too. She had scratched a little pile of litter onto the floor in front of the box, then the next time she went on the pile instead of in the box. Only happened once.
