Yes, Urine is totally normal. House is not overcrowded, there are plenty of litter trays. She has been having this problem off and on since the major earthquakes that we had 3 years ago, so is definitely stress related. She ran and hid after each aftershock ( of which there were MANY) Hope this helps
Hi, thanks for your detailed reply to my query. I have tried most of which you suggest, including Feliway (sorry I forgot to mention that), but thought of using different litters. Thing is, is that she squats down right next to the litter box, and lets fly, so I dont think confining her with the box will be very beneficial. Thanks for the links to the info about clonazepam, unfortunately owing to the temperamental state of computers, I cannot open the site, but will keep trying. Have you had any experience of cats using clonazepam? If not is there any other anti anxiety drug that you have experience with. This problem has come and gone since the earthquakes, but she has just over the last 3 weeks become bad, and I feel that a short course of an anti anxiety drug may be the answer, just to get her out of the habit
Thanks, we have just been to the vet to get some amitriptyline (elavil) to try, , and have bought a covered in litter box to give her more privacy, to see if that achieves anything, so watch this space!!
I really have to laugh or cry - Nigella popped into the new covered litter box, had a look around, and promptly went into the laundry and peed on the mat there :-(. Cant wait to start the elavil!!!
