Q. Can you tell me why our Blue Point Siamese Rag Doll cross 10 year old male cat would poop on my duvet on my bed. He has done this twice .for no reaso

Answered By

A. Cats can toilet outside of their litter boxes for a number of reasons, including pain and discomfort getting in or out of the litter tray, urgency to the point they cannot make the litter tray or for territorial marking issues, particularly if there are any changes in routine, surroundings or people in the household. If this continues I would recommend a full health check and fecal exam if this is continuing for intestinal or other internal issues
