We adopted a cat in March after our friendly barn cat disappeared. This one is an indoor only cat. At first he was a good cat, and acted like he'd always lived with us (no hiding under the bed or anything). Now he's terrible. He's decided he doesn't want to use his (clean) litterbox, and instead pees and poops in my husband's laundry basket (twice today already). We clean up after him but he still goes in that spot. He steals anything of ours he can and digs it into his litter box too. He has a scratching post that he always used to use, but he's now decided he prefers our leather living room furniture, our kitchen chairs, the door frames (which he leaps up against and grips on)... We specifically asked for a cat that gets along with dogs, and let him settle in for several weeks before we introduced him. He has his own space (our bedroom and bathroom) where the dogs aren't allowed, but he attacks them even if they are ignoring him. Is he psycho or is it us? My husband wants him gone and i'm inclined to agree now.
