A different type of litter entirely might help or even switching to pee pads or towels in the box. Some critters just want something different.

Pine can work well, instead of buying pine litter go to a feed store and buy the pine bedding pellets for horses, very cheap. Or they used to make a special dog litter. I don't think it caught on so might not be made any more. It was kind of like large recycled newspaper pellets. There's also the shredded newspaper fluffy bedding type.

Try a thread about litter training and not biting. Second, some members have previously had trouble with clay litters.

Tidy Cats has worked great for me. Hopefully a change in litter will help.

As for the excited/submissive urinating, there is no stopping that unfortunately. Some foxes grow out of it, some don't. It's not something you can really train because they're just so excited to see you and go right there where they are standing. Fable still does this.
I'm Fable and Ifrit's mommy. Also mommy to Carousel, Breeze, and a bunch of snakes, lizards, and spiders. Oh, and one amphibian!
