Ask the Pet Expert | Cat not using litter box properly
I have two cats I adore — Sam and Hoot — who were adopted together three years ago. They are both are on a urinary tract diet, but there are no other health issues. But Hoot urinates on a mat just outside their litter boxes. We've had his urine tested three times. This started happening after I fostered a pair of kittens for 10 days. He seemed to put up with them but wouldn't play with them, either. Shortly after their release to their permanent home, he began this bad habit, and it's been almost a year. What can I do to try and stop this?
