Q: my kitten pooping in the tub.

December 11, 2012 | By Jasonlustman | 1 answer | Expired: 1139 days ago

I wrote a question about my kitten. First off I don't harm her in anyway. I just gaive her little taps on her butt. Trust me if I hurt her she would not lay with me every night and sleep right beside me. The cat is very much loved!!!!!! But yes the pooping thing has to stop. She has a clean litter box and I put it inside a box so she doesn't get the litter everywhere. She is peeing in the box and pooping in the tub. I just need to know why she is doing this. It just started, she was doing just fine. The litter box is not covers. It's just in a box. I just need advice. I don't need people yelling at me for giving her a SWAT to the butt. I don't know if she's trying to tell me something. And I only seated her butt once. I repeat! She is very well taken care of!!!!!!!!!! Does she not like where her box is? Or does she think the tub is her personal poop station????

you might be right she may prefer her box to be somewhere else in the house I know that my dads cat Tickles would not go where the box was cause she didn't like where it was Tickles prefered to not have the box in the bathroom she wanted it in my dads bedroom and if it wasn't there she wanted to potty outside but every cat is diffrent but there still might be a health concern or if anything in her life has changed recently even if it is small like a new person in the house or something like that could be why she is doing it I hope this helps good luck and have a merry christmas!
