Cat pooping on the floor..... (I'm about to strangle her)
We introduced a rescue kitten into our home last month. We had two inside cats. It's been the usual cat crap. You know. Nothing nasty or bloody.

The female (only one of three) has chosen to poop on the floor at the doorway of the litterbox for two weeks, at least. We have wood floors, but that's beside the point.

We are getting tired of it and we've tried everything.

Any worthwhile suggestions?

If the box is the enclosed kind, take off the top. Some cat's don't like to use those. Or get yourself a cheap aluminum turkey baking tray and set that out just to see.

(it needs 100% new fresh extruded newspaper pellets at least once per week)

if the litter kicks up dust, it is bad for the cats' lungs

get the newspaper extruded pellets for litter

Thank you. This little bitch has two to choose from; she has been around (we rescued her from the local shelter) for at least a year. She knows the rules and she's just being a bitch. She's hiding from me right now. I am gonna push her nose into it this time!

Re: Cat pooping on the floor..... (I'm about to strangle her)
Maybe there is something to the brand or type of cat litter that she does not like? If it is scented litter, try using unscented. The chemical fragrances they use in cat litter can cause allergies in cats, oftentimes showing up as ear infections.

The fact that she is going to the bathroom at the doorway of the litterbox shows that she knows it is where she is supposed to go, but she doesn't like going into it. Is it a covered box with a lid on it? Or is it just a pan? If it is scented cat litter with a lid covering it, the chemical fragrance will be more overwhelming than if it is just a pan without a cover.

Try using the brand "Scoop Away, Super Clump, Unscented." It doesn't have those chemical fragrances in it.

Is the one who is pooping one you already had or the new one?

Anyway it is a sign of stress so getting annoyed will only make her worse. She is a CAT for heavens sake so she is doing what cats do when stressed. Trying to make a big mark about what is her territory. She feels scared and threatened. She needs to feel secure.

I would also put a litter tray in the hallway for the time being.

Buy a cage for her and keep her in there with a litter box /food/ water /toys until she gets it, to only go in the litter box. I got a 4'x4'x2'cage for $50, well worth it. Once kitty is only going in the litter box, re-introduce her to the outside world (outside the cage that is).

"Also in the Kabbalah, Samael was said to be the Serpent who tempted Eve into sin. He even seduced and impregnated her with Cain."

Genesis 3: 14-15
14The LORD God said to the serpent, "Because you have done this...I will put enmity between you and the woman, And between your seed and her seed"

Genesis 4:11-12
So the Lord said to Cain..."now you are cursed from the earth...When you till the ground, it shall no longer yield its strength to you. A fugitive and a vagabond you shall be on the earth.”

I Chronicles 2:55
And the families of the scribes...These are the Kenites ["sons of Cain"] who came from Hammath, the father of the house of Rekab.

Jeremiah 35
Then I set bowls full of wine and some cups before the Rekabites ["sons of Rekab"] and said to them, “Drink some wine.” But they replied, “We do not drink wine, because our forefather Jehonadab son of Rekab gave us this command: ‘Neither you nor your descendants must ever drink wine. Also you must never build houses, sow seed or plant vineyards; you must never have any of these things, but must always live in tents. Then you will live a long time in the land where you are nomads.’ We have obeyed everything our forefather Jehonadab son of Rekab commanded us...We have lived in tents and have fully obeyed everything our forefather Jehonadab commanded us. But when Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon invaded this land, we said, ‘Come, we must go to Jerusalem to escape the Babylonianb and Aramean armies.’ So we have remained in Jerusalem.”

Matthew 23
“Woe to you, scribes [Kenites/Rekabites] and Pharisees, hypocrites!...Fill up, then, the measure of your fathers. You serpents, you brood of vipers, how are you to escape being sentenced to hell? Therefore I send you prophets and wise men and scribes, some of whom you will kill and crucify, and some you will flog in your synagogues and persecute from town to town, so that on you may come all the righteous blood shed on earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah the son of Barachiah..."

Once had a similar problem with a cat.
Then I accidentally let the cat outside and we live in a high coyote area of the southwest.
I just feel terrible about accidentally letting the cat get out by leaving 2 doors wide open for an hour.
It's just eating me up inside.
Anyways, my carpet is immaculate.

Cats don't speaka the English so you can't reason with it. What you need to do although it isn't exciting is add more litter boxes. With indoor cats you have no choice you need more litter boxes than cats.

My God, you have to be a troll. You can't be real.

The one who is pooping who has been there a year is obviously stressed by the addition of the new cat into her litter box space. Do not shove her nose into it. That will not help.

I had a problem with my two cats not using their litter boxes. It turns out they did not want to share a litter box. As soon as I got them their own litter boxes, everything was fine. Get each cat its own litter box. If that doesn't work, get each cat two litter boxes, one for pooping and one for peeing.

No, I'm not, Mister. She is doing it on purpose. Our other cat, who is in his teens is fine with the new kitty. The little bitch is way younger than him and seems to be trying to make a statement.

For those of you that asked, here is the deal:

They all have one covered and one uncovered box. Each are filled with wood pellets. (You might educate yourselves to the benefits of wood pellets over commercial cat litter, but I won't even go there right now).

They have their own room with their own space and SHE HAS NO REASON FOR BEING SUCH A BITCH!!!)
