Looking for answers to litterbox evasion
Lately I have had a problem with Barnaby pooping outside the litter box every once in a while. It's usually a couple times a month only, and the box isn't dirty or unscooped when he does it.
We recently built a brand new house and shortly after we moved here he has used one and only one room in the house to do this, and it's never in the same place in the room. This is when I decided to put a box in that room but that didn't make a difference. He seldom ever did this in 10 years at the previous house.
Tonight he went 2 feet from the box and it was the stinkiest mushy rotten turd you could imagine. Anytime he leaves one of those in the box he doesn't cover it up which is another puzzling thing.
I don't believe he is associating any discomfort with the litter box because 99% of the time he goes in the box. I haven't changed the brand of litter and although I recently tried some different food for him, he was doing this well before that.
Puzzling.... any ideas?
