Try a fully-enclosed box with a flapper door, or just find or make a box that will just fit over the litter box.

Wait! Maybe this is a blessing in disguise! Maybe you can put a bowl under where he pees. Then you could just pour it down the drain and you wouldn't have to deal with stinky cat litter!?

If changing the brand/type of litter you're using is something you're considering, I would recommend this one which is softer and emits no dust.

He probably is really sensitive in his nether regions, cats his age have issues with bladder control anyway, t he kidneys go, the liver, and then the heart. Do you have a big enough litter box? Consider going to shredded news paper. Newspaper shreds don't get kicked up onto his ultra sensitive naughty bits. He's a very old kitty you have been doing something totally right that he's even still alive at his age!
