We have three cats, and one of them "a Siamese" has this habit of pooping on
the carpet around the litter box.  He usually will not use the box to pee to
often either.  My wife is about to kill me because he is mine.  Please
help!!!!  Any advise or tricks to fix the problem would be GREATLY
appreciated.

Thanks in advance,
Matt

How many litter boxes do you have?
How regularly is it cleaned out?
Is it filled with enough litter?
Is it an open or covered littertray?
What kind of litter are you using?
Has the cat been checked by a vet to rule out medical reasons for the inappropriate peeing &
pooing?

Lots of questions....

I've three cats and have two very large covered cat littertrays - regularly cleaned out. Some cats
can be *very* fastidious and if the littertray isn't to their liking, they will refuse to use it.

Well... I don't know any advice to fix the problem except to move the
box OFF the carpet onto a hardwood floor or linoleum- at least they're
easier to clean (we have 2 of our boxes on linoleum, one in the
ba***t on concrete). And it wil have a big effect on the odor
problem.

From a legal standpoint, you may wish to check and see if you live in
a "community property" state. If so, you may remind your wife that the
cat belongs to BOTH of you.
