We've had her about a month. A rescue cat. She was fine when we had a litter tray and kept her inside. Then once she was allowed out, we moved the tray outside and then got rid of it altogether. She was fine for a short time then we went away for two days (the neighbour came in to feed/stroke her) and she's started pooing (and, on occasion, weeing) inside. I'm so sick of clearing it up, and it's in the kids play area, which is grim. Also concerned the house is beginning to smell despite me going mad with the cilit bang. How do I train her not to do it?
Appreciate that but it's worth having if only as a back up. I'd also recommend (from bitter recent experience) that you dig over your earth properly to make the flowerbeds easier and quicker to use. If you haven't done that yet this year, they're likely still hard and crusty.
