OK...I think I\'m at my wit\'s end here. :r
And I apologize if this is a little long...
I just transitioned Mr. Coopurr about a month and a half ago from a regular old litter box with clumping litter to the Scoop Free box with crystals, which is automatic and has a rake.
He took to it immediately. And I did all of the stuff you\'re supposed to do, even leaving his old litter box for him for two weeks, just in case. But he loved the Scoop Free, and didn\'t even bother with the old box after he tried the new, automatic one.
Now, he\'s a major -- did I say MAJOR -- digger. Add that to the fact that he loves to watch anything that moves and makes noise -- the toilet, the shower, even the coffee maker.
He keeps going in the Scoop Free EVERY time it rakes. Which is setting off the sensor every time he does it. So basically, he\'s going in the litter box every twenty minutes to scratch and to chase the rake. His hearing is extremely acute, and he can hear the rake from just about anywhere in our apartment.
I\'m worried about two things. First and foremost, I\'m terrified that he\'s going to get stuck in the rake or hurt himself.
Second, how do you correct a cat from playing in his own litter box?
I just don\'t know what to do. And I haven\'t done anything because...well...it\'s his litter box! I don\'t want to discourage him from going in there.
Thanks for any advice!
