I've had cats do this too - I don't know why they do it, but it falls under the vague description of normal cat behaviour! I wonder if your girl would like a hooded tray, which will give her sides to scratch at

Sounds like she is just trying to cover her scent. Tommy was a big cat and he would scratch the tiles around the smaller litter tray, just because he couldn't manoeuvre his big body in the tray! A bigger tray should help.
