I am a new member & hope that I am doing this correctly. I am inquiring as to whether anyone has any advice for me. I have 5 indoor cats and my last addition is approximately 8-9 months old now. I have had her since she was approximately 4 months old. She was a stray kitten that I brought home from the neighborhood. She immediately began to use the litter box and approximately 1 month ago, she started using the corners of my living room as her preferred pooping preference. I have never had this problem before. I have encountered my kitties peeing in the wrong places, but never pooping on the carpet. I am now putting down layers & layers of newspapers on a daily basis & have scolded her the couple of times I have been lucky enough to catch her at it. I do not want to put a litter box in my living room due to the odor problems plus I am afraid my other 4 will take this as an invitation to use the corners rather than their litter boxes. Also, I have noticed that she and my Rascal (my 2 year old female) do not get along anymore. Rascal stays in the bedroom and watches LuLu like a hawk. LuLu seems to be the instigator from what I can tell and she and Rascal have tied up on occassion. This is has never happened before either between these two. Any suggestions on how to rememdy this and why she started this behavior to begin with? FYI: I had her spayed 2 weeks ago and this has not helped as of yet.
