When cats get ticked off at you be careful where you step, Boobear has decided that she can't use her litterbox anymore and is pooing on the bathroom rug YUCK!!! I did get mad at her and put her in her litterbox only to have her scramble out of there as if something was chasing her. Looks like she's not going to get over the newbees being here. Sooo, does anyone know what to do when their cat stops using their litter box?

I had that issue and I bought new litter and cleaned the box. she was fine after that. If my mom does not have it fresh smokey won't use it either.

Does she has her own litter box or does she have to share hers? Some cats don't like sharing their litter box with others. She is obviously upset by something and she is trying to get her point across.

@rebelann she may come to accept themy over time. Cats are just so set in their ways and don't handle change very well, it was nice of you to give your mom's kitties a home.

Sorry, I cannot help you because Sophie uses hers all the time. She gets mad at me for other reasons.

My sister's cat, one of four, was pooping in the bathtub. It was natural cat litter she was using that made him angry, so she switched back to the cheap stuff, and all is well.

Is it freshly changed, maybe she just wants to go outside? Cats are indeed temperamental. I would advise being careful when you force her to do something because they will attack their owner if they feel threatened. I am sure women are much better at handling cats than men who just try to use brute force.
