My cat decided that he wanted to stop using the litterbox to poop in and instead wanted to do it next to the box. We tried EVERYTHING we could think of but after 6 months and having a 1 yo walking around I decided I had to say goodbye to him. I was devistated but the people at the welfare league were great. They let me take all the time my pg hormal self needed to say goodbye! The place also looked great and I knew that my cat would be safe till he found a new home.
