|Hi, thanks for the response.
Not sure how old she is, she was a stray when the shelter took her in. Best guess is 6-7 years old, definitely still young. She was fixed at the shelter.
She is not actually pooping outside the box, she poops in the box, but then sits in it, so it'll be stuck to her butt. (I actually managed to witness this for myself today, this might be an involuntary action on her part.)
As soon as I find her, I distract her with treats while trying to clean her as best as I can with warm wet paper towels.
Been using the same litter for the past 2 years.
Since I learned that this may be involuntary, I'll take her to a vet again. Since the current vet hasn't been a lot of help with this problem, I'll be sure to look for a new one with a behavioral background, thanks for that tip!
