My five-year-old cat has is driving me crazy. Please help!

My cat has been pooping/peeing outside the litter box for almost three years. He uses his litter box, but also the bathroom, any dark corner he can find, and on one memorable occasion, my surfboard (right in front of me!) [more inside]

No Cat Pee Smell Litter Box - Does it exist?

Okay, sorry for this gross question I am about to lay on you. I clean my cats' litter box on a pretty regular basis, scooping it daily (okay, almost daily) and then washing it down when needed. It is large size. What I am finding is the cat claw scrapes go down to the base and it's like the cat pee seeps down into the actual plastic of the box and just makes the box permanently stinky. I tried litter liners and it was a disaster - they ripped them to shreds and it was just extra mess to clean up. Does there exist like a stainless steel litter box base or that material they make space ships out of or something?

Please remember how to cat!

Why is my one kitten such an idiot about the litter box? It's not that she's got a litter box aversion, and she's not sick, it just seems that she hasn't figured out which end the poop comes out! [more inside]

Why u no bury poop?

Almost a month ago, my BF and I adopted two beautiful shelter kitties. Overall, they're great cats, but we're somewhat befuddled that (at least one of) the cats refuse to bury their poop when using the litter box. Is this something we should be concerned about? Details and pictures within! [more inside]

My cat only uses the litter box half the time!

Retraining cat that pees inappropriately

My cat has started urinating in inappropriate spots in my house (and also my friend's house who was taking care of her and my other cat while I went through a move). I've read the threads here on dealing with urine smell, etc. But need more detailed advice about the process of RETRAINING. [more inside]

My dog loves the litterbox but my cat doesn't.

PetOwneratWit'sEndFilter: my cat is picky about the litter he will use. The dog loves to play in the litter and strew it around the floor. A covered litter box prevents dog from strewing litter all over the floor. The cat won't use the covered litter box. Is there a solution which will please all of us? [more inside]

Where does the litter box go?

Cat owners - where in the house do you keep the litter box? We're getting ready to move into a new home, and are having a heck of a time figuring out where to put it so that its (a) easily accessible by our furry friends, and (b) out of sight, out of mind for any humanoid visitors.

Cat Smells and Odors

PotpourriFilter. As anyone who shares a house with felines soon becomes aware, with cats comes a certain...odor. (Or, as we refer to it in my family, "eau de chat.") Besides the obvious sanitary measures, I'm draining my life savings by investing in deodorizers (which are rarely effective for more than two or three days). Does anyone out there have recommendations for killer potpourri or other scent options, not including candles?
