Try some world's best cat litter - it is very good (although expensive too)

Hi Elaine,

Cats and their 'toilet' areas is a very sensitive thing for them .. any slight change can cause this ..

Have you got enough litter trays for them ? Sometimes cats are not fond on sharing toilet areas - especially males ... Was the previous litter scented at all ? Also, the wood pellets might be too hard on his paws and uncomfrortable for him. Maybe try a fine cat litter as it also may be easier for them to 'use' etc.

The location of the litter trays can be a main cause as well .. they need to feel secure when they are using their toilet as this is a very vulnerable time for them. Has anything happened with them being near the litter trays, ie. maybe they got a fright whilst being by the litter tray and now associates this feeling of being 'scared/unsure' with the litte tray ???

I had the same with my boy, I now get the clean paws cat litter .. it's great!

I will post more info for you when I can.

Cheers,
Aimee x

Hi Caroline,

Are your other two cats out door cats ? Not to sound too funny, but keeping them seperated like that won't stop them much from catching anything from your other two cats as most of these flus/viruses etc etc .. are passed though the air anyway. But I can understand your worry.

Maybe look at where you have the litter tray positioned in your room .. is their food in your room as well ? Also what type of cat litter are you using?

Aimee :)

Hi Aimee
yes our other two cats do go out,and yes I do feed them in our bedroom, we brought a crystal litter first as one of the breeders was using that,then to cut a long story short we went to another breeder and she was using a different litter so we have two types at the moment the other one is flushable pellets (breeders choice).he didn't like standing on the crystal litter so we brought the other type.He will have a wee on the pellet litter if I am in the room and I catch him before he does it. This morning he weed inbetween me and hubby before we got up this morning.I am washing all the sheets and things every five minutes. :(

Shame, I can imagine how stressed you are ... :(

It could be that maybe his food is too close to the vacinity of his litter tray ??? Also, try having two litter trays instead of just one as he may not like the idea of having to 'share' .. some cats are fine with sharing but some aren't.

A different cat litter could also be an option, I have gone through so many as my bengal boy went through a weeing everywhere stage ... and I have found that the clean paws - clumping litter has been the best in my situation. It is a really fine grain lightweight litter which is comfy for their paws as well as it is easier for them to 'manouvre' when covering their mess.

The only other thing is to maybe start again with is litter box training .. by now you should be getting some idea of his toilet habits, so everytime he has eaten, put him in the litter tray as well as at intervals throughout the day .. stick him in the litter tray. Try doing this ever so often and just keep with it .. entice him with encouragement and praise as well ...

But don't loose faith x .. If you are in anyway worried Caroline, don't hesitate to get him vet checked.
