cat won't use litter tray

by Daisy Rayner

My cat does have a tray. she walks in there, then walks out with out doing any thing and then she runs the house being weird and goes to the toilet around the house instead of the tray. Do you know why?

Answer by Kate
my cat used to be the same, she just became scared of it for some reason. She will now use it but still runs out afterwards and does a lap of the house. Make sure your litter tray is placed in a safe quiet place not near to her food. You may have to follow the litter training exerxise decscribed on my training pages to encourage her to use it.
Good Luck

I had the same problem
by: Anonymous

I had a cat that did the same thing. There were two things I changed that stopped this from happening. (it was fluke by the way..I'm no expert!!) I put three kinds of litter out, side by side. She used the two she liked..she urinated in one and deficated in the other..But the behavior didn't stop until I changed her food to a higher quality. Then it completely stopped.
