Relocating litterbox to other floors
Hi everyone - I've not been here in a while, but am in need of some advice for this situation...
First, my house sucks and there has never been a good spot for a litterbox. When we moved in, we put the box in the spare bedroom. It's been there for 4 years now. But, now we need to make this room in a nursery and the box, of course, must go.
I've placed two new boxes in the basement, and one upstairs. But both cats continue to mainly use the one in the bedroom. I'm afraid to just take the bedroom one away for fear of accidents, but I don't know what to do to convince them to start using the others.
On top of this, one of the cats has started marking - fecal marking (they have a tenuous relationship, at best) - so I'm toying with putting her in the upstairs room to limit her space and deal with the fecal marking and also attempt to get her to start using that box. Is this a good idea? I'm nearly certain the other cat would use the basement one if the bedroom box was gone.
Please - any thoughts you have would be appreciated - thank you!
