A few months back we realized that the kitten, Felix, was peeing on Paul's duffle bag located in our Master Bedroom closet. Then he pooped in Paul's backpack.
Then we went through a stint where around once a week we would wake up to find poop next to the food and water dishes on the kitchen floor.
My gut told me it was Felix- but we were also concerned that Linus was perhaps getting so upset by the bullying that he would mark his territory.
Then at once, without any changes, the erratic bathroom habits stopped.
Until now. For three days in a row we've found poop in the kitchen....this morning it was actually IN the water dish.
Then I went down today to change the litter, thinking that the "organic" stuff Paul had picked up on his last trip wasn't as appealing as their usual Tidy Cat. When I pulled the mats up, they were soaked, and there was liquid underneath. Now our basement has little built in gutters to allow the hill water to run through so it IS possible the mats were dipped into that and somehow soaked through.
The basement itself didn't smell like urine, but upon closer inspection I'm fairly certain someone is skipping their box in favor of a mat.
I'm not sure what to do. We have the box sitting away from any water and on the cement so we can easily see if someone is peeing. I'm not sure how to guard the kitchen floor and outside of making sure the box is cleaned daily will be adding a few additional boxes to the mix- when the kitties went in for their checkup the vet did recommend at least three. Fun!
Sorry for using the word poop like 20 times in this post but I need suggestions? Has anyone else dealt with something like this?
