    Default Poop on the floor : Revelation and solutions : YOU MUST READ !

    Oh boy !!! I am so happy that I’ve learn that today.

    After days and days of trying to find out why my cat is now suddenly pooping on the floor. He was doing great with green…and suddenly started to poop on the floor. Here is my revelation (maybe a lot of people knows…but I didn’t have a clue !) : My cat had diarrhea when we started the green ring, he was pooping in the toilet all the time. When his feces started to be normal he hit the water once, and never went back.

    Why ? Because with diarrhea you don’t have back-splash…it’s like to go pee !! But when your poop is normal, if you don’t poop in front of the LK ,(because in the back there is more water) almost all the times it will splash the bum of your cat if the poop hit the water. THEY hate that !!! When that happens to me I hated it too !!!

    So I went back to amber, and the goal of my cat is to hit the ring…because he doesn,t want to get a little wet if the poop hits the water. He doesn’t want to experience that again !

    WOW !!! So my cat doesn’t want to experience again the back-splash. The ring is not the problem, in his case. So there are THREE solutions that I think will work :

    Lower the level of the water and/or put toilet paper to “absorb” the splash for # 2…

    And also , that I will try now and give you some news later, put the litter IN FRONT of the LK, and only there. So it will naturaly guide him to do it in the front...I hope !

    Front = No back splash !!!

    After I found out about back-splash, I googled this : “toilet trained cat back-splash” to have more info about it, and I stumble on that book…and I was literally jumping everywhere…VERY GOOD INFO for cat who poop on the floor. So I had the confirmation that I found the problem of my cat : My cat doesn’t want to experience back-splash on his bum again !!!

    Here is the link that will help you I’m sure :

    I know many people have had this problem and they also tried to either lower their water level or put a tissue or something down in the toilet, I'm sure you will find many threads discussing this issue if you use the search button on the forum for back splash or similar words You want the cat to eventually hit the water so making your cat using the litter can't be the ultimate answer to the problem...I'm happy that toilets in Norway does not have high water levels so my cats just hated the hole...

    Hope you'll be able to fix it now that you (may) know what the problem is

    This may be my problem too!!!!!!!!!!! I have 2 cats and have been struggling with poop (with one of them) in the green stage. I got frustrated and went back to multi cat amber (I bought the multi cat rings). I want them to get back to being comfortable on the toilet again. I was planning on going back to normal amber next weekend. I will try lowering the water level in the toilet when I go back to green.

    Hi Stella and Zoey...and Norwegian too !

    Thank you for your reply...Here are some more news...

    The water level is down, and my litter is only in front of the LK (I would say like 1/3 of the ring) , and all the time my cat peed in front !!!

    AND for the first time I started with Litter Kwitter, my cat poop TWO times today...and, also, good news...in the front of the toilet !!!

    So far so good...I continue to have faith !!!

    Updates...
    After 10 days using the method : Litter in front only (1/3 of the LK and lower the level of water. Well, 100 % of the time , the cat went on the litter kwitter, in front or near the front, and the poo is going in the hole, or part in the hole. For my cat, so far (but I still cross my finger!), that method works.
    I will change soon to green...
