4. Issue: Your cat leaves its poop uncovered.
Solution: Your cat could be leaving its waste uncovered as a message that it doesn’t like its new litter. Try changing back to the previous brand you used if this is a new problem. On the other hand, if your cat has always had this issue, then it probably means that its mother never taught your cat when it was a kitten the importance of covering its poop. You can try training your cat to learn this behavior by taking its paw and carefully dragging it through the litter after it uses the box. Also, try switching to a softer litter that will be more comfortable to dig in. (Pet Finder)
