It sounds as if the problem is behavioral, but you should have the cat examined by a vet just in case it is due to a urinary infection or other problem.


If the problem proves to be behavioral, you will need to take steps to retrain the kitten to the box. Basically you need to confine the kitten to a room like a bathroom, or a large cage with only food, water, bedding and the litterbox. As he begins to use the litterbox consistantly you can expand his space. There is more information at this link:

You need to thoroughly deodorize wherever the cat has been peeing. Nature's Miracle is highly recommended as is Simple Green. It is the smell of the "accidents" that causes a cat to reuse the place.

Check into using Feliway, a spray that mimics the happy scent cats leave when they rub their check against something. You can get it from your vet or from Cat Faeries at http://www.catfaeries.com
If you visit the website, you will see a phone number that you can call and for a fee discuss your cat's problems with someone. The person who does this is very knowlegeable and it may be worth the $$ for you. Feliway is also available in most large pet supply stores. There is also a Comfort Zone plug-in with Feliway that can help.

Finally, if all else fails, ask you vet about using an antianxiety medication such as Buspar or Prozac. These very often work, however the decision to prescribe them will rest solely with your veterinarian who will be able to monitor the dosage and side effects.

Smile, it will make them wonder what you are up to!
