I have been having problems with one of my cats. After getting declawed, she wasn't using the box to deficate. I did everything the vets and articles told me. I have two litter boxes now, even though the two cats still use the same one so i know that's not the problem. i used this technique of putting food down where she was going and that worked. Then all of the sudden, she started going less then one foot out of the box and there was some blood in the stool. I found out that she had an infection and we got her on medication. SHe was cured of that and was going in the box again. About three weeks later, she started going out of the box again (less than a foot). I don't want to try the food method because it's so close to the box and i would rather her go there than in the living room like before. Molly will go in the box, however, you have to put her in it or you must be in the room where the litter box is and then she'll go. Usually, she does it while we're sleeing or at work so we're not there to make sure she goes in the box. Any suggestions would be greatly apprecitated!!!!!
