Default cat pees in box but poops on floor

hello i have a 7 year old cat named stacy, and as of a few months ago she started doing this. at first it was only once in a while. like she would do it for a week, and then not for a week. she will still use the litter box when freshly cleaned, but after that she wont. around 2 weeks ago we added a second box but it didnt help. keep in mind she is a moody cat some weeks she loves the other cat, and some weeks she hates her. can anyone help. is there anything i can do to stop this. we have tried giving her more attention, changing litter, removing the rugs, and putting down pads for her.

Have you taken her to the vet to make sure she's healthy? Normally peeing outside the box is what they do when they're sick, but you never know.

Where are the boxes located? Are they near any sort of appliance that makes noise that might freak her out on occasion?

no we havent taken her to the vet. though she seems healthy, and the boxes are located in the office so there is nothing in there that she isnt used to, or could scare her

Hmmm, Heidi may have more ideas, cause that's really all I've got.

Cats are really good at hiding the fact they're sick, although normally when they have a UTI or that sort of thing they're peeing outside the box.

how many litter boxes do you have?

if you have one get another and see if she poos in that one. she might be getting picky wanting to pee in one and poo in the other.

next time shes poo save the poop and take it to vet to be analyzed, its better than them trying to extract a poo sample.
