I dont get it, she covered when she first got here. I mean its not that big a deal, cept when her poo stinks bad.
It doesn't matter what kind of cat litter I use, my youngest cat who is now 7 years old has never covered up her business. She hates to get her paws dirty so she's in, does what she has to do and literally jumps right out. And that's even when the box has been sanitized and full of fresh clean litter.
The litter box is in the bathroom, so whenever I have to go in there I take 10 seconds afterwards to bend and scoop. So the pan is always clean for their next use. If she has a particularly stinky poo, I just go in and scoop right away.
As with people, cats all have different potty habbits
My oldest cat shovels before and after. She digs right to the bottom of the pan before, and then makes a huge mound after.
