We adopted a male cat last year. He had been a stray and is roughly 3 years old. We had him neutered/chipped/licensed/ vaccinated all the good stuff. He took to the indoor life perfectly. Used his litter box without fail right from the get go. When the nice weather started, he expressed interest in going into the backyard with us. He does not/can not get out of the yard. So here is the problem, now he will not use his litter box, he will only pee and poop in the yard. It's not a huge deal but he wakes the entire house up in the middle of the night to be let outside. I worry about raccoons and skunks at night. I'm not sure if there is anything I can do to change this behaviour now. Any advice or shared experiences will be appreciated! Thanks.
