Cat doesn't cover urine

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
My male cat, roughly 1 1/2 years old, recently neutered, doesn't cover his urine. I thought it was some "macho" thing, but I got him fixed and he still does it.

Any help please, thank you.

Not all kitties do it. When I used to use regular litter Miss Kitty never buried anything. Now that I use feline pine she does bury the solid waste. When they do it outside it's to cover their tracks (i.e. so other animals don't find them), but I think many housecats have been domesticated away from it. I'm sure some of the cat-xperts here will have more info.

Mine don't either. They cover solid waste, but not urine. Why is it a problem? If it smells too bad then maybe consider a covered litterbox, or a different type of litter? My boxes don't smell at all

The problem is that it smells very bad and very strong. I'm getting a covered box and I'll have to try different litter. What is a good absorbent litter?

arm and hammer is good/has baking soda to absorb odor.

I use Arm and Hammer and it works well. I mean, baking soda is what you put in your fridge to absorb odors right? What could be better. I tried all different kinds but I like this one the best.

Neither of my cats cover their urine either. They just wee and leave!
I use the cat litter crystals, they are a lot more expensive but the brand I use doesn't smell at all. You'll need to shop around though as some of the crystals absorb well but smell really nasty.

Sophie covers hers, but Rosie doesn't, but the Sophie goes on after Rosie and covers it for her
