I need help cat with my 2yr old cat Misty.

Customer Question

.I need help cat with my 2yr old cat Misty. She is going pee on our rug through out the house and she's begun pooping in our back yard as well. My husband is thinking we should possibly give her away and I definitely don't want to do that. We have 3 litter boxes indoor and on the side of our house we have an area with sand which our cats use as a huge litter box as well. We've had problems with her soiling ever since we got her as a very young kitten. We've taken her to the vet for this in the past as well. Please help. Thank you.

Hi - I'm sorry it has taken me this long to get to your question - i have only just come online and found it. I have a couple of questions, if that's ok.
- how many pets do you have? How many cats?
- has your vet looked at a urine sample?
- any change in the amount she is drinking?
- what do you clean the mess with?
- is she urinating normal amounts, or are they smaller than you would expect?
- has anything changed in the house recently?
Sorry for the number of questions - the extra information will really help. You can get back to me by hitting 'reply'. Thank you, Rosie.
