Mrs Meowington (Maggie) went in for her spay and microchip today. She's not happy and is struggling to come to terms with the sleeve. So are we to be honest, worried about waking up tomorrow with pee and poop everywhere cos the vest is all around her with just a small gap for her parts.
Well we used a cone on the previous cat and she just ripped it off constantly and when it came to feeding time she couldn't eat anything so we though the sleeve would be better.i have never in 50 years of cat ownership seen a sleeve used post-spaying.. but what a great idea (and looks SOooooo cute!). Poor maid is gonna be so fed up!
Hi all. After some advice if any.
He isn't a young cat he is 15. It's just bizarre that is is pooping in it but peeing on the floor. I've tried cleaning and also putting bleach all around the edge of the room but that hasn't helped either. I'll try the tin foil but just worried he'll just pee elsewhere. He was fine before we moved and was ok to start with after the move. The only new thing is a higher sided litter tray as the other cat(also 15) was peeing over the edges as he wasn't crouching enough.Nightmare.
Usually cats who are litter trained will naturally return to proper usage in time, but moving or other disruption can interfere with their training. I would put another litter tray near where he is peeing, and tinfoil over the ground where he is peeing (cats don't usually like peeing on it). If possible, you could also stop him entering the area he is peeing in for a few weeks. Make sure you clear up any pee quickly, and use specialist cleaning sprays to get the smell out - cats are attracted to peeing where they've pee'd before.
If you're using a covered litter tray, try take the cover off, or buying a larger tray.
If it's any consolation: we had three months of pooping hell from our new kittens. Then, one day, they just stopped and for the last month there have been no off-piste pooping incidents. These things are often temporary.
