My cat is meowing a lot before she outside of her litter box

Customer Question

My cat is meowing a lot before she poops outside of her litter box on the floor.
She has done this on 4 separate occasions.
She has never gone to the bathroom outside the litter box before, and since the behavior is odd I wanted to learn if it could potentially be a medical issue or is it because I have been travelling and the litter box has not been cleaned out as regularly

Hi. Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** Thank you for your question. I'm sorry to hear about these stools outside of the box. Did you also find a lot of stools in the box too and it was very full? Is she otherwise eating normally, drinking normally and being social like usual? Are the stools outside of the box normal?
