Was reading this article on line earlier and this popped up Quote..

Faeces is also a scent-laden marker. Although common wisdom is that cats fastidiously bury their wastes, they may use faeces to mark territory - a behaviour known as middening. Middening cats deposit their faeces in a prominent spot (often on top of a tuft of grass or the middle of a path), often choosing the same place again and again to advertise their continued presence. Middens are usually located at disputed areas of territory where challenges are likely to occur. Sometimes this is indoors, the usual place being the bed. A cat which has been upset by an intruder or unusual event middens in the place which smells most strongly of its human family, reinforcing the family bond. Humans don't see it the same way.

Heres the link hope it helps....http://www.messybeast.com/cat_talk2.htm

Behavior & Training > Not Sure How He'll Handle It

Aww Congratulations on your baby! hope you are all well and healthy.
I know it is a bit scary right now, you've got lots to do and yeah....Life is going to change dramatically for every one...and yeah its going to change for Bandit too....Unfortunately thats life (How cliche!!!) and there's no way you can look into a crystal ball and see how Bandit is going to react.
I share my home with three cats, my partner and our Baby daughter Samantha there is a life to be had with cats and children living together....dont worry there are things you can do in advance to help ease the transition a bit.
First....If you are setting up your Baby son or daughters bedroom i would highly reccomend keeping kitty out of it for the time being, i reccommend plugging in or spraying feliway (tm) in or around babies room a few weeks before he or she arrives (at least two), the hormones that feliway imitates will convinvce kitty this room is part of his or her home and safe place thus kitty may associate baby with the feeling and smell of the baby room, and this might also stop some jealousy....and hopefully any attempts from Bandit...to mark your Babys room as his own via spraying, scratching, urination or defication.
Jealousy is going to be an issue, so its going to take alot of extra cuddle sessions with kitty....maybe some treats, a soft word etc. Your life is going to be a flurry of quick naps, 4hour feeds, nappies, baby clothes and visators but as long as you can find a few minutes away from baby to sit with kitty and give him a bit of tlc....
Try to make sure Bandit has a ''safe place'' to hide, or take refuge incase things get too much for him,a cat tree, warm cupboard or cat bed in a quiet room away from the flurry of activity.
Also its a good idea to take Bandit for a quick check up at the Vets , get him any boosters he requires etc, that way you know hes in tip top shape before baby arrives.
I would say the best idea is to take things slowly, and please think very carefully , youve given Bandit his second chance at happiness in your home,and things are going to settle eventually.

Its very likely...that Bandit may Huff for a while, give you the silent treatment or act out a bit, but please be patient with him, and also please enjoy the experience of becoming a Mummy for the first time!
Its really beneficial for your son or daughter to have pets in the family home, it helps to instill the value of respect and care for animals, I love to watch our 2 year old daughter care for our cats, pet them , sleep with them and tell me how she thinks they are ''kuuuuuwel'' or ''cuuuute'', Cats are stubborn, and sometimes resistant to change, but every cat is different and you may be surprised....

hope everything goes ok, keep us posted.

If you feel you want to help this kitty, and you have the funds to get him care, i would bring him to the vets, please keep him seperated from your other kitties untill he has the all clear. heres a thought, if you feel you have no space for his forever home why not adopt him for a while, get to know him, socialise and the try to find him a home with a friend family member or someone local? You must be very torn and worried. hope you and all kitties are well. xxxx
