Dear Catster reader,
Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.
Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.
Catster magazine, www.catster.com and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.
Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.
Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.
3 year old neutered cat keeps going outside box (pee and poop). What do we do? Have tried everything
The first time we noticed inappropriate peeing it was when he was sick. He gets hot spots every summer due to environmental allergies (we have been to the vet enough to be sure on this, and we understand when he is sick, he will pee on things.
We also noticed he will pee or poop outside the box if the box gets too dirty.
Most of the time when he pees inappropriately, it is on my side of the couch. Never on my boyfriend's side. Now we leave a tinfoil barrier on the couch when we are out/in bed, and he hasn't been peeing on the couch.
Well, this morning his box was clean and he is healthy, but he peed on some towels on the kitchen table, then pooped on the welcome mat next to my shoes.
We are about to have a hurricane. Does weather affect indoor cats so much that this could be the cause?
We have been cleaning the spots with Urine eliminator for cats. I have read so many articles. How do we stop this for good?
I love my cat like a child, but I cant take all of this piss everywhere.
