We have a fourteen year old cat that has quit using his litter box on several occasions over the last year. He urinates in certain spots in the living room at least 3 to 4 times a week. This behavior seems to stop in the summer when he is able to go out in the yard. As well today he had a bowel movement in the hallway right outside my home office. His litter box is in the basement & was cleaned yesterday. He does not have a problem going up & down stairs. My husband thinks it is an age issue and time to consider putting him down. I think it is a behavior problem. Up until two years ago we had two cats. We had to put our older cat down at 18. I don't know why he has suddenly started these very bad habits. We have some very young grandchildren so we cannot put up with this bad behavior.
