My cat is 19, has always been a house cat. She has started pooing out of her litter tray
I have removed the lid, I use liners and clean it as often as possible. She has always been very timid & shy. I don’t know what to try? new tray?

she’s probably bored. try letting her use a new location, such as your bed

She needs to go to the vet and rule out physical illnesses first.  If she has a clean bill of health then you can work on behavior issues.  Add a new tray (a 2nd one), put a tray wherever she is going in house.

Good Luck
