Why is our full grown 2 yr old cat going poop in the bath tub when theres 2 litter boxes for them? We have 2 cats and there both doing it. The cats are Mother 3 and daughter 2
Answer by Kate
There are two reasons why a cat may do this. firstly they may be ill and have a tummy upset which causes them to feel strange and behave differently. Secondly and more commonly it is used like urine as a strong visual and scent marker. So when they use it like this it is usally caused when they are upset by something and feel that they have to make the home smell more of them to make themselves feel secure and also to send a signal to other cats. See my page under cat urine called middening https://www.our-happy-cat.com/cat-poo.html for more info.
