My neighbor, and good friend came over today in tears. She is soooooo discouraged! She has three cats, two are 2-3 year old females, and the oldest is an 8 yr. old girl named Tuffy. All are up to date with check-ups, shots, and all are spayed. The oldest girl, Tuffy, has taken to peeing on the kitty mat just outside the litterbox entrance. She does this all the time! The litter is changed regularly, my friend has tried different litters, different cleaning techniques, etc. The other two cats go, no problem. We cant figure out why Tuff has decided to do this. My friend is concerned that (a.) her husband has "had enough" and (b.) the other cats will pick up on this behaviour. A call to the vet has ruled out a UTI. Any ideas and suggestions? My friend is at her wits end, and is afraid she may have to give up her cat. I've considered taking her, but wonder how she will do with my boys as she is declawed and much older than my guys.
