First of all, is the litter unscented? Unlike many people, cats do NOT like scented litter (the "fresh scent" will trigger an asthma attack in me, so my cats lucked out
). Also, cats do like a clean litter box, and often like 2 litter boxes, 1 for pee & 1 for poop. And actually, having the 2 boxes per cat reduces the smell & cleaning just seems to go faster, too! And if at all possible, put the boxes in the spot she prefers.
Please keep us posted on how she's doing! Toilet issues - seems like pet owners & moms always have to deal with this one
