He has only gone in his box twice in the last three weeks. He goes into his box, looks like he's going, kicks his litter around, but there is nothing there! He then proceeds to poop elsewhere in the apartment. Sometimes he squats and goes, other times he's on his back or his side and then just starts going.
Has been to the vet twice - said there is nothing medically wrong with him. Wants to put him on meds if it keeps happening - but I really don't like this idea. We have him in a room to retrain, but it doesn't appear to be working.
Nothing new in home. Use pine litter (he eats everything else). We've had him 2 months. Already dealt with litter box avoidance after bacteria found in urine - but got him peeing in box again without much effort.
Maybe he's stressed? I can't think of anything that happened when this all started. Vet said he may not have been feeling well and he was just trying to tell us... but now he's better so why won't he use his box?
