Cali ( 5 months) won't use her litter box. she sometimes does, but then poops in the tub or on the floor. My older cat (5 years old) has his own box in the bathroom also. I thought by getting Cali her own box she would be okay. Should I move her box into another room. Any advise would be appreciated.
I've felt the hate rise up in me... Kneel down and clear the stone of leaves... I wander out where you can't see... Inside my shell, I wait and bleed...
Has she been doing this all along? Or just recently? Did you switch litter types? If not, I would suggest confining her to one room with the door closed and her litter box. She is old enough to know where it is, so it has something to do with the box. Maybe it is one with a lid, and she is frightened of the lid?
Is she ONLY pooping outside the litter pan? Usually, if peeing in the pan, but pooping outside, it could be a sign of a medical problem (constipation or colitis) It could also be that the cat prefers another location. You might try moving the litter pan to a different room.
