One of our cats started peeing in the tub. We got pissed and filled the tub up with water, thus stopping her from peeing in the tub. Now she pees on the bath rug right outside of the tub instead (literally a foot from her litter box). Please help brainstorm some "get the hell back in your litter box" ideas.

This all started when we got a different litter box. We had one like this
... a simple open box with high sides. Even though the sides were "high" the two cats were kicking litter out over the top and occasionally missing and peeing on the wall. We got a new litter box like this
and oh what a difference it made. No more tracking litter throughout the house, no more pee on the walls, etc.
Then we started noticing pee in the tub. Like I said earlier, we filled tub with water -> no more pee in tub -> pee on rug right outside tub and right next to litter box. We now have the lid off of the new litter box basically making it an super-high-wall-open-top litter box in case she didn't like using the hole. And we KNOW she uses it because she poops in it
. It's just the pee we have problems with.
I always wash the rug immediately after I see the pee (yesterday I caught her in the act and threw it in the wash right away) and spray down and clean the area with a cat scent remover/cleaner spray immediately.
Do you have any ideas?
