|For a couple of months now, my cat Pequena has been going right outside the litter box. She has been peeing outside the box, and pooping inside. Yes, she did have a UTI, but that has been cleared up for over a month now. Now, she is also pooping right outside the box.
I know what the problem is, because I have witnessed it twice now. My dominant and original cat, Sasha, bullies Pequena when she tries to use the litter. She attacks her and pushes her out of the box. I have only seen it happen twice, but I am sure it has happened a lot more often when I am not home. Now pequena just automatically goes out the box, because she is afraid to go in the litter.
Yes, I have two litter boxes, one in my bedroom and 1 in the basement. Yes, they both use both boxes. Yes, they are both open boxes with plenty of space around them for "escape"
My question is, how can I get Sasha to stop bullying her in the litter box and secondly, how to get Pequena to go in the box again and no longer be afraid?
I desperately need help!
Oh also I tried the cat attract stuff for the litter box and that hasnt helped. In fact, Pequena doesnt seem attracted to it at all and Sasha eats the stuff out of the litter box!
