Don't know what you are doing but here are the essential litter box rules for happy cats.....

Ask Your Own Cat Veterinary Question
Cat Veterinarian: Dr B, Cat Veterinarian replied 2 months ago

1. Scoop litter box twice daily everyday, and dump whole box at least once monthly

2. Use only unscented scoopable litter

3. With each cat you need 1 box plus one. So one cat needs two boxes.....

4. If you have an upstairs you need a box on each floor

5. No covered litter boxes, no litter other than the scoopable unscented type

6.Keep boxes in easy to get to areas of the house....not out of way places

you must do all of the above things in order to have success with cats using boxes consistently

If you have additional questions or concerns, let me know...DRB
