Litter boxes should be placed far enough away from each other that the cat can only see the box it's using.

If your cat has trouble finding the right spot in its small litter box, it will probably need a larger litter box or two. Storage containers, utility tubs, kiddie play pools and sandboxes can be used as large litter boxes.
