Q. How to stop cats from going poop and pee around the house.

Answered By

A. Ensure there are plenty of litter boxes that are cleaned daily and left near preferred places that the cats are generally eliminating. The general rule for number of cat boxes is the same as the number of cats you have plus one. There's a product called Dr Elsey's cat attract which may help as well as trying plug in Feliway cat pheromone diffuser as there may be some underlying anxiety. This is after health issues have been ruled out as a cause.
