Hi everyone, I have posted threads before and have tried everything: Feliway, Zylkene, Cystease, Play, multiple litter trays, cat attract, Royal Canin Calm food, Pet remedy, scratching posts and boxes, you name it i've bought it. Of course i've been to the vet multiple times also and no physical causes have been found. So I have decided to try crate training using guidance from here http://www.ourcompanions.org/pdf/OC Crate Training for Your Cat.pdf and the lovely Sunny who posted her crate training experience here About To Start Crate Training For My Extremely Litter Box Averse Cat. I will do a daily update like Sunny did in case it helps anyone in the future. Fingers crossed! Day 1. While I was setting up the crate, putting her food and water in first, I spilled some on the floor, slipped and fell backwards squarely into a litter box behind me! Lovely start. A change of clothes later and at 9.30am I put her in the crate. She did some deeply unimpressed wailing. I had put the litter box at the front of the crate, her bed behind it and her food and water behind that, thinking she'd want her food farthest away from the tray but I soon found that she sat in her food bowl as she clearly wanted to sit at the very rear of the crate... So I moved the bed and the food/ water bowls to the back of the crate, next to each other on the left and right of the crate and she settled in her bed. By 9pm, she does not appear to have used the litter box but she has thrown litter everywhere. I let her out while I cleaned it up and put her back in.
