How do I get my kitten to stop doing this...?
I have a 5 month old kitten. He is completely litter box trained, but seems to be having this one little issue. When he uses his litter box he will stand in it, in the litter and everything like he should, but he will actually poo outside of the litter box. Like he hangs his butt over the edge of it and goes. He will pee in it just fine, no issues there. It is just when he goes #2. He will even kick litter out of the box when hes done just so that he can bury it on the floor. I keep the litter box clean. I clean it out everyday and pour new litter in it once a week.
Is there anything I can do to break him of this habit? He is fixed and is an only animal if that helps.
