i'm hating cats!!
I've had cats for many, many years and am finding them totally frustrating at this late date.
I have seven cats - all fixed.
I have 5 litter boxes - i know i'll get suggestions to get more boxes and i think i will.
These cats - who, by the way, have a FABULOUS cat-safe outdoor enclosure!!! This outdoor space is probably 1200 sq feet of native vegetation where they can catch birds and lizards.
They pee on my dogs' bedding and sometimes they will defecate there too!! It seems that if they do it repeatedly, it becomes a habit and they do it first thing in the morning when i first let them out of their room where they are locked in at night. NOTE: this room has access to the outdoor enclosure and they are in and out of there all night long.
ALSO - i adopted a Siamese from the shelter who basically lives in one of the boxes in the cat tree. He's afraid of everything apparently and stays in there 24/7 except to bathroom.
God - i'm just hating cats. Damn cat spends his entire life in a box!!
