Serious litter box issue

I have a male cat and he has always been litter box trained, even after we got a second cat, then he randomly started pooping outside, but right beside the litter box, and peed outside it too, and now he is using the bathroom in random spots of the room and I don't know what to do.


My boyfriend keeps telling me we have to get rid of him but I know there has to be a way to fix this...

Re: Serious litter box issue

...you may need a vet check to completely rule out any urinary tract/bladder problems.
...you may need to clean your litter boxes more frequently.
...you may need to try a different type of litter.
...you may need to have more than just one litter box for your two cats. They may not like sharing.

Clean the random spots with an enzymatic cleaner. Really soak the area and let it air dry so the enzymes have a chance to work and remove the odor causing bacteria. Maybe place litter boxes over those 'bathroom areas'.
Give #1 kitty plenty of love to let him know he is not being replaced by kitty #2.

I hope something in there works for you and your kitty. Sometimes it is difficult to locate exactly what the trigger is and remedy it.
