How exactly would you "reprimand"??. Cats are not dirty by nature. Sometimes, I have some of it pretty far away from the box. I think in that case it may stick to a couple hairs then drop off, or get pulled off, in transist. Or, if soft, it gets on their bottoms and they scoot it off on the rug.
If you think it might be some other behavior issue, you could try a different litter, or different location for one of the boxes. They may not like having their boxes together and one of them may prefer to be more private. You will just need to do some trial and error stuff.
