Why, Cosmo? Why?!
So, when we got Jasper, I put a second small litter box in the master bathroom for him and put pine pellet litter in it (mainly to try out the pellet-type litter). We left it in there after Cosmo and Jasper became buds, as a "just in case". The main litter box (a nice big enclosed box with a clear plastic flap) sits in the laundry room on the other side of the house.
Jasper loves the main litter box and uses it all the time (it's got normal clumping clay litter in it). In the last week and a half, 20# Cosmo has decided that he prefers the tiny (12" by 9" or so? Maybe smaller) litter box in the bathroom with its pine pellets. It wouldn't be a problem except that he's so big, he pushes pellets out of the box (as in a cup or more at a time), a single pee from him soils the majority of the litter in the box, and his poops are huge and rank. Plus he's just too darned big for the box.
So, tonight I took the small litter box out of the bathroom completely, mainly because I was tired of stepping on pellets and picking them up. Not twenty minutes after I removed the litter box, Cosmo went in and pooped on our bed.
Now I don't know what to do. Do I put the tiny litter box back with its annoying pine pellets? Do I switch out the pellets for clay litter (it'll be pushed out of the box when he uses it, just like the pellets)? Do I not put the box back? There's not enough room in the bathroom for a big litter box (even an open box), otherwise I'd just do that. Help!
