Question Not using the covered litter box

My new kitten had been using the litter box, but yesterday he pooped outside the litterbox. The litterbox was clean, the litter was the same as before, but I had put the cover on the litterbox. The "door" is easy to push, but he either didn't realize that he could push it or he didn't like doing his business "enclosed." At least, I hope this was it and not some bid for attention.

I have taken the cover off the litterbox for now, but I need to get him used to doing his business with a cover because he also doesn't "cover" his feces with litter so it tends to be pretty stinky. The room his box is in is the den, where we sit and watch TV. We don't need the aroma.

Any suggestions?

Well, it happens sometimes with mine.
The only solution is to clean it imm. to avoid "the aroma"

Default How to encourage them to used enclosed litterbox

Well, of course I clean up immediately, but I could use some tips to encourage the kitty to use the enclosed litterbox. Right now I have taken off the cover and he's using it fine, but the room would be more comfortable if the litterbox were enclosed.
