I want to thank all the kitties and their beans who took time to offer up suggestions as to our litter box issues.
So far, I have
- Taken the lid off one of the covered boxes
- swept up all the litter around every box
- moved one uncovered box to a different spot in the basement
- moved the little box
- I saw Jesse head down to the basement earlier tonight so I stalked her. I called her over to the newly moved box and just talked to her. She got in, peed, buried and was done. I praised her, telling her she was such a good girl.
The last 2 days, there has not been any messes on the floor. Hopefully, these solutions will work. Although, if it is stress that caused it, I am worried. I am leaving on the 15th for 9 days. Our "renter" will be here after 5 pm (he'll be in charge of feeding them through the week) and a friend will come in on the weekend. Jesse does not like him at all and only tolerates other people in her house. We'll have to just take it day to day, I guess.
Thank you very much. I certainly appreciate all the advice that was given. We are hoping to get back to regular posting/visiting in the next day or two. My son has been feeling a bit off lately so it was more important to tend to him. Thanks for understanding and again, THANKS FOR YOUR ADVICE!!
