I end up having to sweep the floor 3 or 4 times a day, and it's really loud when we're trying to sleep.
LOL, sounds like my Chynna. She's a real digger and shoveler! She used to shovel out more than 1/2 of the box each time she used it, then I got one of those litter boxes that have extended sides where the top 2" fold over towards the inside of the pan. It's just enough to keep the litter in.
I swear that when she uses the box that she could dig herself to China if it weren't for the hard plastic bottom and the 7 floors of apartments below me, LOL I've learned to tune her digging noise out.
My Abby on the other hand doesn't dig at all. She hops in and does her business and leaps out. She hates getting her paws dirty and God forbid she should dig or cover up what she does. lol
I don't really think that there is anything you can do. That's just your kitty's potty habit.
