Does Not Cover Up Her Poop

When a cat fails to cover up his waste in the litterbox,, it could be a sign of a medical or behavioral issue. There are many painful conditions, like a urinary tract infection or an injured paw, that may cause cats to avoid the litterbox. To rule out any health problems, take your cat to the vet. If it’s not medical, then your kitty could be leaving his poop uncovered for a variety of reasons. Cats are picky about their litter, and yours might not like the type you’re using. Or maybe you don't keep it clean enough. Perhaps his box might be too small for him to turn in. If you have multiple cats, add more litterboxes to your home.
