Hello my cat pees in the litter box, we have clumping litter but he's a big boy and he often leaves pools of pee that end up wetting his entire hind area,  is there a better litter that could possibly be used to be more absorbent more quickly?

Hi @Britishmysterybuff,

Thanks so much for your question. I'm wondering if the litter tray itself is large enough, especially as you mention your cat is a bigger boy. A large tray with deep sides will allow you to fill the tray with a deeper layer of litter which may help solve the problem.

Is this a new behavior for your cat or something he has always done? If it is a new behavior or there are other changes to his toileting or drinking habits (for example drinking more water than usual), I would also recommend having him checked over by your vet to make sure there isn't an underlying kidney or bladder problem. 

I hope this has been helpful, do let us know how you go!

Kind regards,
