Housebreaking cat with IBS
Sebastian, a 9 or 10 month old Siamese, has Irritable Bowel Syndrome. He was inconsistent in using the litter box. His brother, Hibachi, uses the litter box just fine. We had only one litter box. For a while Sebastian starting using the box...did great for a week or so. But then he stopped. Now he goes in the kitchen. On top of the washing machine. Whenever the urge strikes he stops and squats.
Two weeks ago, I added a second litter box. No help. Occasionally, Sebastian uses the box, but he is very inconsistent.
He's on a grain free dry diet, which helped a lot, but with IBS he has occasional constipation followed by gas. When he has to go, he goes where ever he is at the time.
