Hello, I’m having a problem with my kitten, he’s almost 6 months old but has a really big problem whenever he uses the litter box. Every time he goes to pee he seems to not know how to stand properly, therefore, gets pee all over is fur and private areas and I’m forced to clean him with wipes everytime he goes to the toilet. I’ve tried to go to the vet and he said that he’ll learn to stand once he’s older but it’s been so long I’m afraid he’ll stay like this. Please if you know what I can do I’d really appreciate it.

At 6 months old the standing part shouldn’t be an issue. Have you tried a bigger box? A different kind of box? Adding a smaller amount of litter? Have you tried to take a video to show your vet? If they don’t seem to be interested or worried get a second opinion

Maybe have the vet check out his privates and his back/hips? Is he squatting at all? Maybe he has some pain in his back and he’s not squatting because of that? Some cats are finicky about litter on their feet, maybe try yesterday’s news litter. They are pellets and won’t stick to his feet when he gets in there.
