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.
How do I get our second cat to use the litter box properly?
We adopted Mia, a 6 year old Tabby, 2 months ago. It was stressful for her as her previous owner was no longer able to care for her. She has a very sweet disposition and seemed to settle in. But there is one big problem! Her food and litter box are in a separate room from our other cat, Andy's. When she was first here and was the only one going in her box (Andy now seems to like to use both, but she won't use his) things were fine. Now, even though I clean it out, after every possible use, she will pee in it, but, will defecate on the rug anywhere from beside the box to 3-4 feet away from the box. How do I stop this? I would like to move them both to the same box (it is one of those "self-cleaning" ones, which is so less time consuming! I'm afraid if I take away her box she will start peeing all over the place as well. Help!
