    How to stop your cat from urinating and defecating inappropriately?

    Articlegeneral cat adviceWednesday 31 August 2011

    Cats do not urinate all over the house because they want to annoy their owners. There are several resons for this behaviour and most of them are related to medical condition or stress associated with some changes in everyday life. Cats might also just mark their territory. Learn below how to teach your cat to use a litter box.

    Cats are clever animals so there shouldn't be any problems for them to use the litter box. However, they are also very clean animals so you should make sure to keep the litter box clean and change the litter at least once a day. If any medical conditions are involved in this problem, start with litter box training of your cat. First of all, place litter boxes (it would be good to have two litter boxes for a cat) in the areas where your cat usually sprays. You should bare in mind that your cat might not use a litter box as it feels stressed or something is discouraging it.

    Place a number of litter boxes in different areas of the house to increase the chances that your cat will use them instead of urinating all over the place. If your cat still resists using the litter box, try to use various types of litter boxes and materials.

    If you would like to change a place where your cat's litter box is now, you should move the box a little bit each day to the area where you would like to place it.
