Angry Cats peeing in the corners and sides of the litter box :(

I recently bought them a jumbo sized litter box, so they could have the extra room in there.

How do they repay me?

They pee in the corners and sides of the box! Kind of defeats the purpose of getting them a large box.

Then I have to go in with my scooper and SCRAPE it off, leaving a big mess and then I have to go clean my scooper.

UGH. Why?!

maybe they've each claimed their own corner?

I can't see why. They've always shared a box with no issues at all.

i don't know if this will help, but our Eliza (21) was missing the box and I moved them away from the wall(s) and the one that is under a shelf at the end of our upstairs hall didn't have enough room heightwise. Or so said the wife, so I raised the shelves up 6" for more headroom. That did seem to help. Eliza seemed to do better after those rearrangements.

It's a hooded box, they've always had hooded boxes.

But you see, this is only an issue for you lol .. maybe they have always wanted their own side of the box but never had room?

Sometimes asking why a cat does something weird .. is like wondering why the wind changed directions lol .. they're like us, they pretty much do whatever when the mood strikes them.

True, was mostly wondering if anyone elses cats did this, and if there is a way to remedy this. The litter sticks to the sides and it's messy and unsanitary.

I know exactly what you are talking about, because my two boy cats do this to and it drives me crazy too. I'm forever having to scrape the sides. There are two separate sides where they do this. As much as it drives me crazy, I have learned to live with it. After all, they are peeing inside the litter box.....hey, I'll take that! Having had issues over the years with this one peeing here, and this one not liking this kind of litter, this is doable. I still gripe, as I'm scraping down the side every time though

I have this problem as well. I finally bought 4 new very high sided boxes from Petco with lower fronts and put puppy pads under the fronts. Works very well. I used to get pee run all down the sides and under the boxes and it just about ruined my upstairs floor finish. No more problems.
