My cat, Cricket, is driving me nuts. I started a thread about a month ago about my younger cat, Yeti, who has actually gotten a lot better. But Cricket is our older cat and she's about 10 months old. We've never had a problem with her. The day we brought her home she went straight to the litter box and has never gone anywhere else. About a week and a half ago, she pooped on the carpet in the dining room. We figured that the litter box was too full so we cleaned it out and sprayed the carpet. Two days later she did the same thing. Then she started peeing on the carpet, too, even when the litter box was almost empty. We figured she kept going in the dining room because the smell must still be in the carpet. Well now after we steamed vacuumed the carpet and even got another litter box for the dining room, she poops right infront of the litter box or around it. I think she might not want to go in it when our other cat has used it, but I'm not sure. I've even scooped up her poop and put it in the litter box so that maybe she would recognize her own smell. I'm really tired of cleaning up poop, especially when we already have 2 large litter boxes. Any suggestions?
