A friend of mine is having litter box problems with his cat, this behaviour could be attention seeking. She is about 9 months old and at most times will use her litter tray. He lives full time at the house which is in the middle of the French countryside, his girlfriend is there at weekends and sometimes during the week, Trinity behaves perfectly but if they have people to stay she refuses to use her litter tray, will urinate and deficate in the corner of the same room as the guests in front of everybody. Most recently they had various friends staying over a period of 8 days, she refused to use the litter box so at the moment she has been relegated to outside and the barn.

My friend would really like to get this sorted out and would like to allow her back into the house, at the moment she is allowed in but only under supervision.

Any suggestions gratefully received, he does not want to put in a cat flap.

It sounds like kitty is stressed...

If there is only ever two people that frequent the house regularly, then some people that are totally alien to the cat invade her territory then she may just be reacting badly too it...

Either that or she perhaps sees the guest bedroom as her space and she perhaps wished to mark it out as her territoy to the strangers.

Just some suggestions!

Thanks Hayley, she doesn't go in the guest bedroom, she goes in front of everybody no matter which room they are in. There are two people that live in the house but ever since she was a small kitten there have regularly been visitors.

When guests come over, is it possible to keep your kitty in a small room by herself with litter and food? Like the bathroom, or another room that doesn't have carpet that can get soiled easily? Maybe having her own space would also make the guests' visits less stressful as well.
