I got Scarlett from the SPCA about a year ago. She's probably two years old now. She doesn't like to be petted. She will take a little petting on her cheek but that's it. She's not affectionate in the least. I had a problem with her peeing on things. I've moved to a new house and I haven't noticed her peeing. She even peed on me while I was sleeping! However, I recently got a new male kitten and she won't use the litter box. She goes beside it. I'm finding poo but don't know if she's peeing anywhere. I can't smell it anywhere so I hope she's at least peeing in the litter box. I change the litter every other day. I have two litter boxes placed in the bathroom a foot apart. I wanted her to have someone to play with is the reason I got Rhett. She doesn't seem to really know how to play. She could tear him up but she mostly just slaps him and sometimes chases him. He is only a few months old. Sometimes I think she's playing but she seems to get angry and I'm afraid she'll hurt him at times. Rhett is very affectionate towards me and anyone else for that matter. Sometimes, I feel that she hates me. But when I took her to visit my mother, she said Scarlett looked for me when I was out shopping and seemed to miss me. I am sharing a house with another teacher. She just bought the house. I don't want Scarlett to start peeing again. ALso, the most important thing is that I want Scarlett to be happy! She doesn't seem nervous. She'll hang out with people when they come to visit but she doesn't want them petting her. It seems that when she doesn't get her way she takes her revenge on me and Rhett. She scratched my boyfriend up pretty well and he treats her like an angel. Help! He says she acts like a blue blood and she certainly looks like one. She's very single-minded and pissed off at everyone right now. I don't want to smack her with a paper or anything when she misbehaves. Should I? I've had cats all my life and I've never had one like this.
