Has anyone had any issues with their cat using places other than the litter box to go to the toilet? Twice in the last week ours has decided to do it. The first time we think she was spooked in the bathroom and ran outside mid-crap, but she’s since done it again while we’ve been in London. How do we curb this before it becomes a proper issue?

It can be stress related, I had a previous cat do it near an apartment door but it turned out to be because our neighbours got a dog.

Vet suggested she was using it to mark territory and stress of being able to smell the dog.

I have not been a cat owner for very long but I had that problem a couple of weeks ago, I purchased extra litter trays and make sure that they get the poop picked out of them several times a day and completely emptied and cleaned every 2/3 days, since then I have not had any problems, my cats are house cats and at the moment have no access to the outside (I am building an aviary) so will probably use the litter trays more than your cat

My poor Dad is sadly not long for this world- had a fall 3 weeks ago, rushed to hospital, soon after diagnosed with Bowel Cancer, given a couple of weeks to live. :(

He's at a hospice now, which allows visits from pets.

His cat, Dibble, is a one-person animal and so I went over to my Dad's house Thursday night to see if I could persuade him to come with me for a visit. Dibble's been living down the garden, only coming in when he thinks it's safe to eat without meeting anyone- the neighbour is feeding him. Armed with catnip, some cat treats and a load of patience I managed to befriend him. I stayed over and Dibble slept on the bed all night. :o


I took him in to see Dad Friday(as a surprise, as he didn't think anyone would be able to tame Dibble), and he was absolutely made up. :D

Sorry for lack of pics, I do have some which when I get a chance I'll upload once anonymised.


Dibble has been such a great companion for my Dad since we lost Mum 2 years ago - I'm so happy that I could give him the one wish he had, to see his dear cat again!

Pets :wub: :wub: :wub:

So sorry to hear that Lime. That's incredibly nice of you to do that, I bet it made your dad's day.
