Catch 22

I'm worried about Leelu. I had a huge leak in the bathroom ceiling last weekend and have had people in and out every day all week. I had to move Leelu's litter box out of the bathroom and she's not happy that I messed with her routine. She hasn't pooped since Thu and she started to pee in tiny increments again. I'm worried that she's holding it in and that she's running into cystitis again. I gave her a bit of butter this morning, in the past that moved things along for the constipation, but I don't want her to get another bladder infection. And I don't want the bathroom door open and have her and I exposed to the mold killer and now the paint fumes. Sigh. She's sleeping now and I'll put the box in the usual spot when she's up in the evening for a few hours and hopefully she'll go, but if anyone has any great ideas, please share.

The new location is in a quiet corner too and she does use it, just isn't happy I guess. I thought about moving it somewhere else, but I don't want to stress her out even more.

do NOT disturb the room thats being treated for mold. how about putting the box right outside that bathroom room? talk to her....sooth her, praise her when she goes near the box...encourage her.

Maybe a couple of boxes so she has a choice of locations?? Just a stab in the dark here for suggestions.

I have carpet outside of the bathroom and with and edge pee-er that wasn't my first choice. But I think I'll run to the store and get a second box and puppy pads. Poor thing!

I did praise her after peeing this morning, but she looked so skittish. Poor thing. Maybe I'll go out for a few hours and give her sone peace.

Smart thinking with the puppy pads!! I use them in front of my boxes for the same reason. I have hard floors but once someone peed over the edge and it went under the box without me knowing and sat until it started to stink and it ruined the hard wood floor in that spot. Ugh. Good thing I'm a home owner!! It only takes once. Pee can be corrosive.

She's peeing okay now, but her tail still goes all poofy when she's in the litter box. I took her to vet just to rule out any other issues and she's fine. Tomorrow will be the last coat of paint and then after that's aired out I can move it back. And she probably won't be happy about that either. Poor thing, so sensitive to change
