I know my cats won't use the box if something around them or it itself scares them. I put on one of those swinging doors that came with the box and Webster pooped infront of it to tell me he was too scared to go inside. Is the box in a high traffic, loud noise area? Did you use a strong chemical (to a cat, not us) to clean out the box? And sometimes it helps to take the cat and rake their front paws in the litter to reaquaint them with it. Size does matter with boxes so it may be a space thing.

I think it must be the space thing, since she's started using it again since I took the lid off. It's not a high traffic area - it's right outside my bedroom, which is over on the edge of the apt, so my roommates are never over there, and I only rinsed it out in the tub with water, since I know a lot of chemicals leave smells and I'd hate to use anything that might discourage her from using it. But I did try that raking her paws in the litter thing, I usually do that when she pees on the floor, show her the pee and yell, then put her in the box and rake her paws in it to remind her of where she's *supposed* to go.
