This is a last ditch appeal for help in solving feline potty habits. We have a cat, a little burmese, Shushi, that my daughter "rescued" 1 1/2 years ago. She is sweet, affectionate, little kitty, BUT,,,,she is inconsistent with using the litter box. We have tried EVERYTHING, deep litter box, shallow litter box, clays, cedar, clumping, non-clumping, hooded, non-hooded. Currently using Cat Attract, $20 for 40 lbs. Is bit better, but not the guaranteed results they boast. She will pee in the box consistently UNLESS you leave a bag or an article of clothing on the floor, then she MAY go on it. So, we have not had a pee-pee accident in about 2 months. (She peed on my new slippers) She poops in the box maybe 50% of the time. She has a few favorite spots she goes poop on, places were a litter box would NOT be appropriate. Her litter box is in a 4' x 4' entryway with a baby gate across the opening. This is to keep the dogs from snacking in the litter box. She can scoot underneath the 6" opening. She has some joint problems, and some probelm with vomiting, but these have improved probably 75% since we've had her. She also shouldn't be an outside cat as her joint problems would likely prevent her from escaping predators. I doubt she could climb a tree. She has bad issues with scratching furniture, wallpaper, in spite of offering several scratching post options. She has been spayed, prior to our rescue. Is about 10 years old (hard to know, can see 2 prior owners in her records). She has been vet checked. No treatment recommended by the vet except euthanasia (due to her other issues). I truely believe that when you adopt a pet, it is forever. But Sushi has put this philosophy to the test. We are about at our limit. She is not adoptable in that her habits are nothing any normal person would put up with. If anyone has overcome these bathroom issues, please, I am open to suggestions. She has pushed us all to our limits.
