I’m sorry to hear that your son’s cat is having problems. My female cat of 10 years has stopped using her litter box. Her house mate of 10 years, died a month ago and she has had litter box issues ever since. I have had two rescued brother cats for 16 years.

One had thyroid problems and then kidney problems and was ill for a long time. Hi, I was telling a friend of mine that a friend has a cat that pees and poops outside of her litter tray. I have a chance of giving a home to a 7 year old neutered cat. Unfortunately, he refuses to use his litter tray. I don’t want him doing this. I have a 6 year old female Maine Coon and a 5 year old male tabby.

I got a new covered one and now one or both are peeing on the floor just outside the box opening! My kitten is roughly a year old now, and when we got her she was fully trained to use the litter box. A nice neighbor GAVE us two feral kittens. I introduced them to the litter box first thing even before food and water. They pooped and peed on our bed. My 6 month old kitten occasionally likes to defecate on my leather sofa. Most of the time she uses her litter box. I recently moved into a new apartment with my boyfriend. I got my cat, Marley, who is about 2 and a half, while in college. We got a kitten at the age of 47 days because the lady wasn’t taking care of the kittens, so we took her away from her mother early.
