Q. I have had this cat for 8 years she is fixed but for some reason will find certain spots of the house and spray or instead of going to the litter box

Answered By

A. Please take to vet first to rule out bladder or kidney issues. If that's all clear, she may be suffering from some anxiety. You may want to move litter boxes to the areas she has been having accidents and may also want to consider type of litter that is being used. Litter boxes should be cleaned daily and for one cat, 2 boxes are ideal.
