Bathroom retraining .....going good so far

Busy busy busy...Mom said she has been feeling like she's been chasing her tail all week. And now the market has started! 75,000 extra people has invade our city, which makes traffic and restaurants impossible to enjoy. Mom says the highlights is the great free concerts, and high fashion ladies running around town. Plus it brings so much money into our city. Thank Gosh people are old fashion and choose to keep us the Furniture Capitol of the world!

Now, we are also adventuring on a new tatic for my bathroom issues. Being feral, a female and hating to go after the boys has caused some problems. Mom has tried several things and nothing has worked. So I'm locked in the bathroom for retraining. Don't worry I kind of like it. Mom opened up the door to let me out and after a quick run through the house, I went back to lay down on the towel Mom put on the toilet lid for me. Zach sneaked in and used my bathroom, brat! Mom cleaned it up for me, isn't she great. I have a new big litter box, and Cat attract in my litter. Yesterday I peed in the litter and pooped in the tub. Mom put a towel down in the bottom of the tub and wet it...then she sprayed the dry edges with anti cat citrus spray. It worked....I had no choice but to poop in the box.

This is only my third day in there. Mom said she going to give me a week. Then when back out if I have another mistake it's back in the bathroom. Also Mom knows it's behavioral so to the vets I'll be going but for right now...feliway will do.


Seeking advice, if you've got it.

Good luck! As you know, sometimes I don't use da box. Da humans know it's behavioral too since it has been going on for forever. Hope it works out for you!

Jezebel Mom noticed how I would miss occasionally when we moved in this house but since Gris, it's like I refuse to use the litter box. Mom bought the boys a litter tracker may hoping I would pee on the litter on the floor and what did I do but pee on the tracker pad.

Mom says she hopes this works. Cross your fingers. Oh and I peed and pooped in my box last night.

Hope the retraining works for you, Zoe! Sounds like it's working so far.

My humans tried that and a lot of other things, but nothing worked for me. I just won't use a litter box that somebody else has used. So now I have my own box, in a big dog crate where I have to stay unless the peeps are home to keep an eye on me.

But I don't mind it so much.I have a great view of the deck and can watch the leaves fall and the birds and squirrels flit on and off the railing. I have toys and Vicki comes to bat paws with me.

Funny cats we are Sev. Mom has heard of caging cats for that reason before. Mom said she is going to try one more thing if this doesn't work and then my unfortunate destiny is the cage.

Ps- forgive the spell checker on my phone it has attendance to annoy. Above I meant so Zoe wouldn't pee on the litter the boys tracked out of the box.

Sounds like this idea is workin'~! I know some kitties don't like to 'go' after nother kitty been dere. Shrugs, me 'n Mallee jus' use our two boxes 'n we don't mind. But sometimes Mallee will drop poo puddin'z on da outside. Dat gurly might be tryin' to get more 'tention~! Sigh.

No advice, but I tend to go outside the box at times too. I never poop outside the box, but I will pee if I'm unhappy about something or the annoying dogs next door are making too much noise.

We're a little late coming in on this one - just saw the DDP this morning - congrats! Wish we had a suggestion about your problem, though the bathroom retraining sounds like you're making some progress. The only thing that comes to mind is multiple boxes and/or bigger boxes. Big hugs, sweetie!

I've been locked up in the bathroom since last Friday and doing very well. Mom has noticed me when I am out I M choosing to use my new litterbox in the bathroom. To celebrate my ddp today Mom divided to test the water by leaving me out while she is at work. Cross your fingers!

Ps mom has noticed I'm laying in my new litter box now. Comfort or such deity is the question.

Love you guys, missed you guys the last two weeks.....Mom has been moody and sickly.
