Default Cat started pooping on the floor

I have a 7 year old male cat. He's had no behavior problems since
we've had him but about two or three weeks ago he started pooping on
the floor in random places. It doesn't seem like he does this every
time he has to go and he is still peeing in the box (as far as I can
tell). Other than that his behavior seems normal.

The only thing I can think it might be is we recently switched his
food to another brand around the same time he started doing this.
Could this cause him to do this? If this is the problem should we
switch back to his old food or has he been too long since he started
eating the new food?

Better check out the litter box. There must be something wrong with
it. My Snappy gives a great academy award performance out of pooping
when Im around. First he runs around the house like a demon. Then he
puts his head in the poop house and reaches inside to scratch for a
little while. Then he runs around more. Then he goes in the house
and does the deed and makes a lot of noise scratching the litter and
the roof of the house after he is finished. Then he gets out of the
poop house and reaches in and scratches more. Then he washes up and
goes on to do something else.

Today Eli was laying next to me on the floor when Lily started looking in the cat flap (to make sure Eli not around) so she could come in and have a bite to eat. Eli *always* attacks her. So I hid Eli Peace Talks Pat Cat anecdotes 42 November 4th 05 06:03 AM
