Our cat box sits on top of a big shallow tray. We put that there to catch loose litter.
Our 12 year old cat now pees outside of the box (on the tray) 95% of the time. The other times she’ll pee in the box. I would have to clean up the tray with paper towels, which is pretty annoying.
She’s taking antibiotics to treat a UTI.
Is there anything we can do to encourage peeing in the box?
Should I get a shallower box so that she can easily go in it to pee? The current tray that the box sits on is too shallow to hold litter. Otherwise, I would just put litter in the shallow tray, because she pees in the tray anyway.
I’m basically trying to change her behavior...and if I can't, I'm trying out Ng to find a way to make it easier to clean up.
