I am the same. I have three cats and four boxes. I scoop at least three times a day (morning when I get up, when I get home from work, and night, before bed.) and any time it is used when I happen to be home.
I dump and scrub once a week. the plastic holds odors and needs to be cleaned.
My cats are very picky about their boxes. Tolly will sit down there and howl if the boxes aren't clean enough for him. I hurry down and find that out of four boxes, three are clean and one has a pee in it. I point out to him that he has a choice of three clean boxes, but he is adamant that I clean out that pee.
So I guess he just wants that particular box, so I scoop it out, put fresh litter in and step back. He jumps in, sniffs around to make sure I didn't miss any of the pee....then gets into one of the already clean boxes to use!
Mazy has been known to drag the doubled grocery bag I put dirty litter in up the stairs to remind me of my duties. That happened once when I was sick and couldn't keep them clean for a few days!
