    Default Did anyone solve the poo's problem?

    Please, please let me know if anyone solved the poo on the floor problem.
    Let me know if you read some post on the forum or heard by someone who managed to solve this problem that so many cats have.
    I also have a cat with this problem and I read a lot of advice about what to do but I'd really like to know if there's someone's cat with this problem (that refused to poo on LK and not only poo on the floor as a sporadic mistake!) who learned to poo on LK with no more problem.
    Thank you very much

    Hi,

    I think a lot of us have had this problem. It's natural for the cat to rebel, and when not supervised, poop on the floor. You need to supervise the cats (around the time they usually do #2) and make sure they start using the LK every day, for 2-3 weeks.

    How do you supervise a cat while you're at work?

    You should put your cats on a feeding schedule such that they will need to eliminate when you are home. If you haven't already got your cats on a set feeding time(s), do so. Once you've figured out the pattern from this feeding time, you can then experiment with changing the time until you figure out the best time to feed them to make them eliminate when you're at home.

    Aurora is right. I'm lucky as I run my business from home, but if you work out of home that is what you need to do. Set a feeding schedule, make sure they're on wet food and alter their schedule till they need to do #2 when you're at home (Early morning or evening). If you want to push their bowels a bit, add pumpkin (1 tablespoon) paste to the meal you want them to go #2 after.

    My cat won't eat wet food. He just sniffs around it and acts all confused. Not sure how to fix that.

    Whenever switching a picky cat over to a new food, the best course of action is to slowly mix the new food into the old food in ever-increasing amounts over time. For example, on the first day feed the old food with only a small spoonful of the new food mixed into it. The next day, add a little bit more new food, and so on. The pickier the cat, the slower you will have to proceed.
