Cats pooping and peeing outside the litter boxUploader: Kolten 22 days ago Subscribe 2539
Special-needs cats such as those who are older, arthritic or still very young might have trouble with certain types of litter boxes. Rinse the litter box out completely with baking soda or unscented soap once a week. That can be painful for the cat and make her skittish of her litter box. Incorporate the use of sprays or diffusers that deliver a synthetic pheromone that has been shown to have some effect in relieving stress in cats. Surface Preference Some cats develop preferences for eliminating on certain surfaces or textures like carpet, potting soil or bedding. Was this article helpful? Do not confine your cat to a small room with the litter box, for days to weeks or longer, without doing anything else to resolve her elimination problems. She may enter the box, but then leave very quickly—sometimes before even using the box.
