This happens to all cats. I find litter in my bed, couch, everywhere... it happens when they're covering in the sandbox. There is no litter mat on the planet that is going to catch everything. By trying to wash his feet, you are making the clumping litter stick to his feet. There is no resason for YOU to be cleaning the cat's feet, cats are naturally good groomers so let him clean his own feet. Litter choice is a matter of preference. I have 4 cats so I like a low dust type for my cat bathrooms. Try different kinds and see what works best for your cat. Some cats become very particular with certain types of litter and act out if you switch. If you don't mind changing the box all the time you can try recycled paper pellet litter, mix it in with what you have at first for your guy to get used to it. ^_^
