Cat defecating in the living room..

Hi all, I wonder if anyone can help? Our cat has started doing his business in the living room, same spot, under a table. He has done it three times. He hasn't done this since he was a kitten when he had a few accidents, again in the living room but not the same

His litter is the same, and the tray ( covered) is in the same place it has been for a couple of months ( just outside the back door, through open cat flap) I have another cat too who uses the tray fine.

I have cleaned the area with bicarb and special pet cleaners to stop them repeat offending. Still happens.

I tried a feliway but no difference. I absolutely detest the smell and feel the house is dirty whilst this is going on. And I am panicking that he is weeing else where in the house. He is 10 months and not neutered. He us pedigree and we were planning on breeding with him.

Can anyone help and my apologies for the lengthy post, am at my wits end!!

I have a cat that loves to piss in the bathroom. Luckily no carpet in there, but even so it stinks. He didn't always do that, just the last month or so.

I feel your pain.

I've have a similar problem (and just posted on another thread about it).

Have you had him checked out at the vet, just incase there's a physical reason for it?

The vet advised me to clean it up with biological washing powder/liquid as the enzymes break down the smelly proteins and so they're less likely to revisit the same spot (as they can't smell it). Though I guess pet cleaners must do this too...

Do the two cats have separate litter trays? Maybe they don't like sharing?

My cat did this is my old house if no-one was in, it was horrible and really frustrating. When we moves he just started using his litter tray again and now he goes outside. Since moving to the new house he hasnt had any accidents, I have no idea why. Not that I'm suggesting you move!

I'd ask the vet about it x

I did take him to the vet and they suggested the feliway. I guess I could put a tray in the living room where he goes but I dont really want him to go in there! Ideally I'd like them both to go outside.. Have got so far as the tray outside but that's it..

I would second getting another litter tray so they have one each.

I'll put another one out. But, found another frigging accident in the kitchen. Bloody cat.
