Hi all, new member here. So I have 2 young(ish) cats and one will not use the litter box anymore. He used to use it just fine then one day just...stopped. No change whatsoever to the litter, location, etc.
Thought it was temporary but it persists. He'll run through the house, pooping as he goes. (not getting the zoomies after pooping). We have him on special food to prevent urinary tract infections (again) but I do give him quite a lot of treats (Temptations) if I'm being honest.
When we let them out in the back yard, I've seen him pee in the mulch pile behind the garage, which is fine honestly. But for whatever reason I can't figure out why he's behaving like this! It's like he doesn't know he needs to poop and it just 'happens' wherever he happens to be at the time. Vet didn't say much initially. All told, he appeared healthy.
You all have any ideas? Because I'm out of them
Thanks for reading!
