My cat is a 2 year old, very well trained to use the litter box and bury her waste. But for the past week she's been missing her aim at night while she's in her cage. Half her poop would be out or dripping by the box's side. We thought it was the cage issue so we decided to allow her to roam free at night, with the litter box at a convinient spot (the placement of the litter box is not an issue, she's used to the area). But the past two days of letting her free at night has been even more surprising. She poops right beside the litter box. It's not even a few feet away, its literally 2-3 inches away from the box. Any idea of why the sudden change in behaviour?

You mention "dripping by the box's side"....do you mean she has diarrhea? Is this something new? Her poops should be formed well rather that they are dripping. Your cat should have more than one litter box in another location in a low traffic area. Dr. Elsey's Cat Attract Litter I found is good to encourage cat to use the litter box. For diarrhea, in some canned food, mix one teaspoon of pure canned Pumpkin--no salt or sugar/syrup added---not pumpkin pie filling.
