One of our two tonk sisters has been defecating outside the box...literally, just outside, on the floor outside the box. We have now changed litter type in 2 of the 3 boxes, added the 3rd box, put the (new) 3rd box in a different location (laundry room, the other 2 are in bathrooms on separate floors), added Feliway pheromone diffuser to the house. Cara (the culprit) sometimes seems a little depressed or distant. And Mia sometimes seems to bully her. Mia outweighs Cara by at least 2 pounds, but they are both quick so they don't seem to hurt each other. No claws seem to be involved in their spats. They are 14 months old, both spayed. The do sleep & cuddle up together. Fecal tests came back negative, so it's behavioral.

Has anyone had issues with 2 tonks with behavioral issues? We are at a loss.
