So I have a 7-year-old cat who poops on the floor sometimes. It’s extremely unpredictable. Sometimes she poops in the litter box. She ALWAYS pees in the litter box. But sometimes she’ll get it into her walnut-sized brain that she’s going to poop on the floor no matter what. She’ll do it for days at a time, then suddenly go back to the box.
I’ve taken her to the vet several times. No apparent medical cause.
We’ve tried to retrain her many times in a large cage with a litter box in it. She’ll poop in the box as long as she’s in the cage, then poop on the floor when we take her back upstairs.
Little motherfucker. It’s maddening. My wife is livid. She’s wanting to make her an outdoor cat, but 1) I don’t believe in outdoor cats. It’s bad for the cat and bad for the local fauna, and 2) she’s so fucking stupid she’d probably walk into a pit bull’s jaws.
The other day, the Roomba ran over a pile of cat shit.
I’m going to throttle this little idiot and mount her on my wall if I can’t break her of the habit.
What the heck do I do?
