The first pee she took after her spay was in the litter box, but the first poop was in the shower. Our 8 year old, overweight cat is having a sanitary issue using the litter box. My cat is an inside-outside cat and has never used a litter box.

Instead, she goes outside, but lately she’s pooping on the dog’s bed. In past 2 months, our female Ragdoll has begun pooping outside her litter box. We have 2 litter boxes for her, on different floors of the house. My 8 month old black kitty keeps pooping in precarious places in my carpeted house even when I have just cleaned her box. Jasmine is nearly 13 years old and never had any problems before. She has only ever used her litter tray in an emergency as she always likes to go outside.

I adopted my cat when she was 3 months old. My cat is only defecating every two days. She is ten years old and never been sick. She is urinating in the litter box but doing the other outside. About 4 weeks ago, my husband and I left for a week for my baby shower and had some guy house sit. I got Stevie last October. He’s only a year and 4 months old and he’s blind.

When I got him home he would poop in his litter box, no problems. My rescue centre warned me that Ron always pooped on the floor at the window of his pod and so may not use the litter tray when I got him home. The old litter box was a covered one. Pretty old and getting beat up, so I bought a new one. It has tall sides, but is open top. My cat pooed in the shower! My cat wouldn’t go outside for the day, so I let her stay inside. I do not know what could be wrong. Could it be stressed related? I just adopted him and he’s not using his litter box. Recently my cat was diagnosed with a small lymphoma and bowel disease. She is on prednisone and a medicine for diarrhea.
