We adopted a persian cat that is around 7 years old in April of 2004. Now it is Feb. of 2005 and we didn't start having litterbox issues until just over a month ago.
We have two other cats that get along well with her. They all use one litterbox that is in a walk in closet with an open doorway.
She was left in a house and found along with two other cats for a month when the landlord found them and called the human society. Then I adopted her and introduced her to my other cats. We had her for months with no problems...
...and then she began pooping just outside the litterbox. We knew it was only her (and not our other two) because several times we caught her red handed! That went on for about a month and then...
...in the past three weeks she started pooping right next to the toilett in the bathroom. Most times we would catch her in the act because she would start scratching on the wall next to the toilette after she was finished. We would clean it up with bleach and she would do it again.
So then we closed the door to that bathroom anytime we weren't in there and yesturday while I was one room away she was walking away from the bathroom door when I found out that she did the unthinkable! She pooped right outside of the closed bathroom door!!!
So now I've resorted to keeping a close eye on her and watching every move she makes.
Please help me regain my sanity!!! I don't want the next 10 years of my life to be spent watching Maddie like a hawk!
