Hi, I've had L.C. for 8 yrs. and she has always been a very important part of my life. She is extremly picky about the litter box and lately when ever it is dirty, she craps next to it. Well, now L.C. is also doing it when it is clean. I wonder if it is possible that she is sick. In the past year there has been a lot of significant changes. My husband got a female puppy and I had are first child 4 months ago. We also have a younger female cat. I know that my life has changed completly so I wonder if she feels it too. I'm thinking about taking her to the vet and have her looked at. Once the baby starts crawling this could be a major problem. Not to say that the house smells... What should I do? I would hate having to look for a new home for her... Thanks A lot! silverwolf

Hi- If she is eating normally and shows no other physical symptoms, then it sounds like your cat is reacting to classic STRESS.
New puppy? Major stressor.
New baby? Ditto!
Is the younger female cat also new?
My goodness, no wonder she's not using the box.
It's not a bad idea to get her checked out at the vet, just in case, but boy, these really ar major changes for an animal, particularly cats, who are SO territorial...so when their territory is "invaded" they react this way. Again, double check with a vet, just to be sure there's nothing else going on.
Keep us posted, we're all cat lovers here and want to help if we can.
