My wife and I took on a foster cat back in January. I've posted about Ziggy here before. He's older (going on 10) and we are at least his third home with multiple stops at the same cat shelter as well. He is a super awesome little guy. But he poops outside the litter box. And he's so overweight that sometimes his poop gets stuck to his butt and gets all over the bed in that room. I've tried multiple litter boxes, different litters and calming oils with no answer. He checks out at the vet perfectly fine. We have three other forever cats and Ziggy has lived in his own separate room since we got him. His previous owners turned him back in to the shelter we foster with because of his litter box issues. Our cats and Ziggy know each other live here. But I didn't want to fully start to integrate them until we solved Ziggy's litter box issues. He pooped on the sheets in the last week and I took them off to wash them. There is always this blue fleece blanket on the bed in his room that he likes to burrow under. The blanket was washed recently and not pooped on so I took off all the sheets and kept the blanket on the bed. I went in there yesterday to put the sheets back on the bed and noticed he has now peed in a bunch of different spots on the bed. I am so frustrated at this point but I don't want to let him down over some poop and pee. He keeps getting pushed around to different homes and I truly want this to be his forever home. Does anyone have any other suggestions to try?
