Can't you just put the litterbox on the **** spot?


Bluesman


Wow. What breathtaking simplicity. I assume the OP does not want to put

the
litter box there?



I'm not sure what this means - I don't want to teach him that the spot he
uses is the toilet, I want to teach him that he's not ****ing supposed to
**** there. Placing his litter box on the spot seems to me to be a bad
judgement.

To add insult to injury, I woke up this morning, let Rutherford out of the
bedroom to feed him, and discovered that he had ****ed all over and in his
water dish that I had placed on his favorite non-litterbox spot.

NOW he's just being an asshole.
Come ON, Rutherford.

Have you all used up your suggestions?

Hi All:
Another update on Rutherford the Brave, the floor-****ing and

wall-spraying
cat...

Last night I caught him squatting RIGHT after I cleaned the litter box
(about two hours after) in the 4 foot area that he has destroyed in our
living room with his urine. I feel that he MUST have known he was in the
wrong here, because I had to chase him around for about 15 minutes before

I
caught him to toss his naughty little ass into the bathroom with food and
water and his litterbox for the night.

I placed his food (dry bowl), his breakfast (canned food) and his water
DIRECTLY on the "stink zone" as we like to call it. He hasn't touched it
yet, but I am worried about him now finding another place to ****. I

can't
deal with much more of this, and if he finds another place to urinate in

the
house, I'm gonna flip.

I'll be making a doctor's appointment in a few days to see if we can get a
medical opinion. the only problem I have with the vet the last time (and
first time) we took him in was that she didn't have any real answers - she
just kept pushing her favorite flea and worm meds.

Frustrated and sick of smelling the pee,
Jimmy

Jimmy, I just joined, so forgive me if I'm posting with info you've
already received.


Perhaps he wants a larger litter box.

If it's an open box, try one of those enclosed types.

Try a different type of litter.

If it's an open box, and up against a wall, try moving it 8-12 inches
away from the wall. (that solved the prob. with my floor ****er)

Is he an only cat? If so, get him a companion from the shelter. Once
they've gotten acquainted, maybe the new guy will show him the
correct place to ****.


Again, sorry if I'm just repeating what you've already heard - I'm
supposed to be getting ready for work, and didn't have time to read
all of the previous posts. I know first hand how frustrating and
maddening it is when you have a floor ****er, because you love the
little fart.

Good luck.

Why? Because you don't think a litter box should GO there?
I can understand that it might not look nice there, but with
the battle you are having with Rutherford and the fact that
you claim to love him so much, it seems to be a great
compromise. A bad judgement? Um, you'd have a cat
going IN THE LITTER BOX instead of on the floor,
wall, etc. You could slowly over time inch it in the direction
you want it. Did someone suggest to you that cats are
the kinds of animals you can completely bend to your will?
If so, not true. Rutherford may be missing his literal
cojones but he's got nine more sets and they are all
issuing opinions.

No:
You are to understand that Rutherford has been to the vet, and he checks
out.
I have tried EVERY suggestion I have been given (with the exception of the
Prozac) and nothing has worked.

I am considering the cat box thing, but I wonder if he's going to think that
since I moved the toilet from where it is currently located (in the master
bathroom shower) to the living room that it's perfectly okay to continue to
**** where he likes - especially since I will have catered to him by making
it easier to go on the carpet by moving the box.
