Cats may stop using the litter box for several reasons. With cat litter box problems, the first thing that needs to be discovered by the cat's veterinarian is whether or not the cat is sick. Does she have a urinary tract infection, bladder stones, kidney disease, diabetes or other illness or painful condition? Behavior problems are the next thing to be ruled out. Sometimes behavior problems in cats can be handled as easily as putting out an additional litter box. However, sometimes behavior problems in cats can be very difficult to resolve and may require medication. What is best for your cat? Consult your veterinarian.
