How do I stop my cat kicking everything out of her litter box.

My cat has this problem where when she uses her litter tray, she kicks everything over the edges, and it ends up all over the floor. We thought this was because of the open sides of her litter tray, so we bought her a new one, which had a slight lip on it.

This still hasn't made a difference, and she continues to kick it all over the floor. It's quite painful coming down in the morning, to walk on cat litter on the floor.

Does anyone have any ideas on how we can stop or at least prevent her from kicking it out?

Thanks.

Covered litter box or a box with very high sides. You can make one out of a rubbermaid storage tub.

My cat has an elevator butt. That means he starts peeing squatting in normal pee mode, and then he raises his butt! We tried different things, but easiest was a large bin (2-3 ft high) with a lid, built for storing stuff, like Xmas decorations. It cost $5. I keep meaning to cut a large round hole in the lid, but I haven't done that yet.

Anyway, the great side effect is he can't scratch the litter all over the floor either!

Hope this helps.

We bought a closed litter tray, and that's worked a treat ;] She still kicks it out, but it's only in one direction so it's a lot better.

you could get a door for the closed litter tray, but I don't remember if all cats get how to use it!

Closed litter box with door. But some cats don't like the swinging doors. Takes them a little while to get used to it. My cats still manage to kick some litter out, especially my male, he goes nuts and just throws it everywhere! ;-)

Used high closed trays. If she is totally unmanageable hire a professional trainer.
