|This is Delyte. Despite how comfortable they may look together, there may be subtle dominance issues. Also, there could have been a smell on the stairs that she is trying to cover up, maybe from a previous tenant? You are sure there is no illness going on? Cats will go outside the pan to announce that they do not feel well. Since you are getting stool samples, you might as well take one to the vet and get it analyzed!
After you put a pan there, and she uses it, slowly move the pan away from the spot to somewhere more convenient to you, and she should follow. You probably don't want a cat pan sitting in the middle of the stairs forever. Clean all the places on the stairs where she has gone with a good odor removing cleaner, and hope for the best.
If she is peeing in the regular pan, and only pooping outside the box, this would seem to indicate some problem with pooping, pain or something.
Sometimes we can just be the most difficult animals, can't we?!
Giant purrs from all of us!
