Customer Question

I have a spayed 13 yr. old female cat that will no longer use the litter box. I find poop on the carpet in different places every morning. I have yet to discover where she is peeing as there are no signs of it in the litter box! She has not been in good health for several months and I have had the full work up on her to no avail. What is happening?
JA: I'm good. And you?
Customer: I am frustrated with the above situation. Otherwise, I am well.

Customer: About 5 years ago she was diagnosed with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy,
