I’VE HAD MY CAT FOR ABOUT 7 YEARS NOW.SHE ALWAYS USED THE LITTER BOX. IT SEEMED SHE STOPPED USING IT ONCE I BROUGHT A NEW CAT INTO THE HOUSE. SHE WOULDNT GO UPSTAIRS TO THE BOX, IM GUESSING BECAUSE THE NEW CAT STAYED UP THERE. SO SHE STARTED GOING TO THE BATHROOM IN MY DINING ROOM AND IN THE 1/2 BATH DOWNSTAIRS. NOW THE NEW CAT IS GONE AND SHE STILL WONT USE THE BOX. HOW DO I BREAK THE HABIT. HERES ANOTHER CATCH, WHEN I FOUND HER USING THE BATHROOM I PUT A LITTER BOX IN THERE FOR HER TO USE AND SHE STILL DIDNT USE IT. I WONT BE ABLE TO KEEP HER IF SHE WONT STOP BECAUSE SHE IS RUINING MY FLOORS.
THANKS FOR ANY HELP
