My mother's cats have fleas and pooping/peeing elsewhere
My 93-year old mother has two, almost three year-old cats. They developed a severe case of fleas. The mobile vet gave them one treatment so far. Meantime, one cat, who is her "centerpiece, has begun to poop on her kitchen table and chair. The other cat is peeing on her bed when my mother is out of the room and then goes back to her usual spot on top of her bedroom dresser to sleep. The cat also peed on my mother's portable phone, which no longer works.
She talks about giving them up. She herself is in pretty good health, lives alone and has a dirty house. We are working on that issue.
Any suggestions as to her cat's litter box issues? She has two boxes, one with regular litter, the other with pine.
They were fine until the fleas.
I live in FL, she is MA. My sister is away for most of the summer.
