|Ahhhhhhhhh, I love taking on these people. I used to be in that position, not no more, not never no more.
Tell your husband, if he tries to "get rid" of any of the cats, he is going to jail, and, you can tell him, I said so. And, feel free, to put him on here. I got leverage, he don't even want to think about taking on.
To get you started, do you have children, are you planning on having children, children make messes, lots of them, ask him, is he planning on getting rid of the children too, that fur sure, will land him in jail. Do you make a mess, well heck ya, we all do, is he planning on getting rid of you? Next time he makes a mess, tell him, you are getting rid of him.
In whose name, is the house/apt? Who pays the bills? In whose name, is the vet receipts?
If he tries too, tell him, he really, does not, want me coming on up, to AL, and I got way too many show friends, that will be coming up with me, people he don't want, to take on, like high up powerful people.
In the meantime, you best take over kitty box duty.
Take off the cover, some kitties don't like it, its too confining, kinda like you trying to use a small stall in a public place, and it holds in the smell, remember, they are right above the box level, kinda like you hovering your face over the toilet.
Make sure your boxes are good size. Get the very large ones. I have small boxes, that I take to shows with me and the hotels. I leave them out, so they are used to them. On occassion, one will hang his bee hind, over the side. I have newspaper under them for accidents. I also have large boxes, they use all of them.
They are going to track litter out, when they cover up their stuff and when they get in and out, thats just how it is. Mine are in the bathroom, I just sweep it up.
Some take a large tote, like the 18 gal kind, take the top off, and cut a large hole in the side, like near the top, they can better explain it, kitties jump in and out, might still be some litter tracked off their paws, but it eliminates the spillage when they cover it up.
Make sure you, not the monster man, but you, pick every day.
What kind of litter are you using. The scoopable one works best, I use Cats Pride, the scoopable in the jug.
Make sure, the boxes are not in a high traffic area, not near washer/dryer that can come on suddenly and scare kitty. Make sure other pets or humans in the household, are not picking on kitties or keeping them away from the boxes.
If you are doing all of the above, and the kitty is still peeing outside the box, then you have a kitty that is either blocked or has urinary issues, which is not his fault, and he needs to go to the vet. They associate the pain with the box.
Since your husband, is such a mean person, the cats sense that he does not like them, that causes household stress, and would cause them not to use the box, which, by the way, how does he treat you?
