  1. My sons 8 month old male cat just walked into my kids playroom, hopped into a toy box and pooped in it, RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME!!!! There is a clean litterbox 5 feet from where he went [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    We used to have a stray that we rescued, and we helped him heal, and took care of him..... and then he started pooing on my son's train table. Daily.

    That only lasted a few days, and now he's a stray again.

    [​IMG] Grrrr!

    That's reason number 11 to only have barn cats!
  5. This cat is asking to be put outside. I don't think I can take the accidents and spraying anymore. Half my house smells like male cat urine and he's neutered!
    I have 3 other cats, two use the box every time they go, one uses the box for every pee but has a behavioral quirk (she has kitty OCD) where she will only poo in a bathtub at night (even if you put a litter box inside the tub at night) and then this one.
    He's really ticking me off. My son loves him so I don't feel like I can just get rid of him and he's lived with us since birth (we have his mama).
    I want him to be an outside cat but don't know if I should just toss him out when he's never been outside before, does he need to be aclimated you think?

    When cats do this outside of hte litter box it's highly likely that they have urinary tract infections. Take him to the vet for a check-up.

    My cat would pee in the sink, dryer, bathtub & who knows where else when she had a UTI. She also had crystals in her urine, which made urinating very painful. This is what leads them to seek new places to relieve themselves: they identify the litter box with pain and are trying to avoid pain.
  7. Thanks Jenn, I'll call the vet.

    Glad to hear it, Jenna.

    Hey, any news about your possible "delicate condition"?
