Does any one have any idea why my female maine coon mix kitty has been picking and choosing when she wants to use the litter box? She will piddle in the box no problem but when it comes time for her to do number 2, she choose the floor next to the litter box to do her business. I've tried giving her a bigger litter box, one with a roof, one without, different litters, cleaning it out every time it gets used, and nothing is working. The vet says she's fine and that it's behavioral. How do I fix her toilet issue? Please help!!!
If ALL health problems have been ruled out (constipation, colitis, arthritis) it may be because your cat prefers another location for the litter pan. Have you tried moving it? I would actually purchase another litter pan and place it somewhere else-see if there is any improvement. Make sure it's at a location that is private enough, but where your cat won't be trapped by another cat or dog or child when using it. (It's also recommended that you have 1 litter pan for each level of your house.)
