I love my little boy.........but he is such a stinker! Very obstinate. Ive never had issues moving my litterbox before this particular issue.
I had my litterbox on my main level strategically placed so my bloodhound would have to go to great lengths to get into it to surf for treats.
Well lately she's figured out how to push and toss that box around to get what she wants from it. UGH!!!!!!!!!
So needless to say, I've had to move the box to the upstairs in a room between a bed and a wall. The only place my bloodhound cannot get to.
My other two cats have readily accepted this idea. I think they'd rather not have my bloodhound imposing on their personal space.
However.......and this is where my little stinker comes in. He still wants to go back to the original place I had the litterbox. I scoop him up and bring him to where the new box is and of course he uses it but I have to make him.
I'm not home 24/7 so I am unable to watch his every move to scoop him up to bring him to his toilet to do his business every single time.
First, he is not ill. I've tried cleaning the area where the old box was with natures miracle as well as the walls in case there is any left over scent from using that space for so long. I've place plastic carpet runners with pointy sides up over the old area and then laid large boxes on top of that to block off the space.
He is a stinker...........he is still trying to sniff that area out and find a way to use that space even though the box is clearly gone. It's been 5 days and I'm going out of my mind!
I cannot gradually move the box because of my bloodhound. It either works in a space or it doesn't. Would a feliway plug-in be beneficial in the old area as a way to deter him? What on earth can I do?
