Does each cat have their own box?

Yeah - 1 box per cat, plus 1 for good measure, if you've got available space to put it. Sometimes they "synchronize" and need to go at the same time, so if the box is taken then you might have some problems.

Try a larger pan and see if it helps - also have them checked out for UTI - most litter box problems are due to urinary track infections or blockage.

Have you changed litter recently? And is your current one covered?
If you only have one litterbox, you might want to get more, because some cats won't go in a litterbox for fear of being attacked by another cat when coming out, especially if it's covered.

I have the same problem with a cat peeing just outside the box!!! Really annoying.

I have six litter boxes now for 4 cats. I have even tried keeping the litter trays clean and buying new litter trays for them. Now what happens is they all seem to use the same litter box which gets filled up with urine really quickly and they leave the other ones unused. They also seem to alternate which boxes they use.

I find this weird because I was under the impression they were demanding clean litter trays and more of them so they could have one each.
