Question What are work arounds for cats who pee in corners of litter boxes?

Both my cats have a jumbo sized litter box to use but they still insist on peeing in the corners and on the sides of it, so I have to literally scrape it off with the scooper every time. This gets really old. Not only does it create a huge mess, but I have to then wash off the scooper, and that can take upwards of 10 minutes because the litter turns to wet cement and it WON'T COME OFF.

Is there something I can do or use to make it easier to scoop? And to clean the scoop?

Don't wash off the scooper right away, let it dry, then you can knock most of it off and wash it at that point if you want.

She addresses how to deal with edge pee-ers. Also, you should watch the YouTube video on that page. You think that would be silly, but it helps to see how she manages it.

It's the cat bite. It has spread to your brain.

You are doomed to repeat questions on cat forums about cat pee for the rest of your life. I'm sorry your brain is fried.

Here's what I would do: Get one of those industrial strength scoopers from Petsmart or Petco or Amazon. Heavy duty metal jobbers. Get into the corners as much as you can and forget the rest. Life is too short to rattle your brain with the same issue over and over. OR get a putty knife and just keep it in the bag or far corner of the box that they don't use. Don't worry about cleaning it.

How much is a "part"??????? I wish people would be more specific when they throw in ratios like that. I'm planning on using her method, so I do need to know.
