I have 2 cats well I guess they are still kittens..They were born in April so they are about 5 months old...One is Male and the other is Female..Well mt female will poo on my floor all over...but she will use the litter box too more so when she pees..My male always uses the littler box...I didn't know it's because he is a male that she wont use the litter box or what? I'm about ready to get rid of her cause I can't handle the poo on my floors and it is makeing my house smell now and I wont have my house smell...IS there anything I could do that would be different so she will stop useing my floor?? And is there anything out there to kill the smell?

How many litter boxes do you have? Sometimes cats can be kind of funny about sharing litter boxes. Do you clean out the boxes everyday? Probably, I ask because sometimes cats can be a little funny if there is already poo in the box. Even if it is theirs... Is she going right outside the box? Or just where ever? Try using urine gone. It works for poo smell too. And try a different box. She may one that doesn't like to go in the same box as she pees in... I had a cat like that. My old boss used to tell clients that if you have more than one cat you should have a box for each. I've got 2 cats and have 2 boxes. They pee in one and poo in the other...

A few people have suggested another litter box and that is great. You want to train her to use her new box by popping her in it. I agree there is nothing worse than nasty little surprises all over the floor. If your cat keeps messing in the same spot you could try using a household disenfectant to clean the spot and then sprinkle a dash of pepper. I would avoid using chlorox based products especially if it is for the carpet, unless you want a spotty carpet. Maybe you should try a carpet shampoo specifically targeted for animal messes. If your local supermarket doesn't have it maybe try a pet store or a vet surgery. Good luck!

I'm not sure, but maybe you can get another litterbox and putting it in a different place and getting your female kitten to use it. Maybe she doesn't like sharing the box with another cat, but you can never tell with cats. My Waffles has once again pooed on the sunporch floor and she's now a three-year-old adult! I also found an excellent cleaner, Chlorox Clean-Up, that not only cleans very well, but sanitizes the floor and removes the poo odor. If that doesn't work, try a bit of regular Chlorox to get rid of the smell. From my experience, I have found that cat pee will leave an odor unless something strong, like the Chlorox Clean-Up is applied to it. The stuff is not cheap, but it works wonders. Good luck, and let us know how everything works out. :-)

Cat experts tell you that you need a litter box PER cat, even an extra box. some cats only like to poo in one box & pee in another.
