Our 15-year-old cat has suddenly started defecating on the living room rug (she still uses the litter box for urinating). We have tried switching cat litter to no avail. She seems happy and is eating okay other than that. Any suggestions?
It is possible that this is a behavioral problem but I would have your pet checked by your vet to confirm that it is not a medical problem. Old cats can become senile. You might want to try several litter boxes. Place a few around the house. Also try cleaning the soiled area with Natures Miracle. vetcare
