Please Help With My Cat.

My cat, Moxie, has recently stopped using the catbox. She has been continuing to urinate in it, but chooses to defecate elsewhere. But now I fear she's stopped using it altogether. The problem began when I cleaned the catbox out really thoroughly, scrubbed it and everything. I think it might be some sort of smell that's bothering her, but I've rinsed it out about four times since then, and she still won't use it. This has been going on for over a month and I'm about to lose my mind cleaning up after her every day.

I don't know what to do. Somebody please help. Is there any thing I can do?

first of all when you cleaned it maybe the chemical you used is to strong. if not buy a new litter box and transfer some of her droppings into the new worked for my buddys girlfiend. maybe it willwork for you.good luck.

Clean the tray with cloudy ammonia and hot water. then rinse and leave in the sun to dry.<br />

The cloudy ammonia will disinfect and the sun will allow it to evaporate along with any odours.<br />

This advice came from a lady whose husband is a fireman. Cloudy ammonia is the only thing she has found to work on his clothes and gear. It evaporates taking all odours with it

that's tough, and really frustrating. i'm glad you are willing to work with your kitty. <br />
you might try a new kitty litter. it worked for me after i changed litter boxes, and Otis wouldn't go into the new one. i had thrown away the old one.<br />
good luck.
