My cat Sasha has always been VERY territorial and has always peed right around her food dish. A few yrs ago I moved into a house with other cats and now she not only pees around the dish, she defecates there as well - along with about every inch of my closet floor (which is the entrance to her litter box)and occasionally goes in my bedroom! I'm ready to pull up the closet carpet, try the Feliway and see what happens, but I'm worried she'll just move her habit into the bedroom more then. She's an older cat, and is quite often constipated (other than that, the vet says she's fine) - so she does get kitty malt and mineral oil in her food once a week or so.. She DOES still use her litter box - just not all the time. I have a feeling this is maybe due to her agression towards the other cats, but she'll even go on the bedroom floor at night when it's just her and I in there and the door is shut!
Any suggestions? I've been dealing with this for yrs, but it keeps getting worse.. : (
