I have two wonderful cats: Crookshanks and Kokonut. Kokonut is wonderful with the litter box, but unfortunately Crooks isnt. She keeps going elsewhere...sometimes she makes it in, sometimes she doesnt. She isnt a kitty and I posted this problem before. The litter box is clean and I use a pet odor cleaning product to clean up her messes. I love her and will never give her up, but am tired of coming home from work to find a stinky mess. The odors left from her on the carpet chase visitors away who show up with me. Help with any pointers PLEASE!

Hello. If you don't mind me asking what was your member name before? As for your cat going outside of the litter box is this urinating or is she going poop or both? How old is she and how long has she been doing this? How are her stools? Does she have diarrhea?

I dont remember my previous name, that is why I had to re-register...she only does #2 and did it once in a while since I got her when she was 8 weeks old..she is now 22 weeks old.

I found your other post from last year (by the way your member name is the same as last year). I guess this has been a problem for a long time. Even then she was having diarrhea and not using the litter box. I would take her to the vet. Something is just not right. She either has some medical condition that is causing her to be unable to control where she goes or she may associate the litter box with pain and discomfort due to a medical problem. I don't think this is a behavioral issue. Instead a trip to the vet would be your best bet to resolve this issue. There is always the possibility that she has a very sensitive stomache and needs a certain type of food to help her. If this was my kitty I would go to the vet a.s.a.p.

Did you mention to your vet at the time of the exam that she had diarrhea and was going outside of the litter box? A good vet would have thought this needed further looking into. Honestly, I would take your kitty back to the vet and try and figure out what is causing her diarrhea/litterbox issues. She's been having diarrhea and going outside of her litter box (even if it's close to the litter box, it's still not in it) since 10/03. That's a long time. Something is just not right with her. Please keep us posted.
