What do you do when your elderly cats stop using the litter box?
I’ve thought about putting her outside but not sure she would be happy with that. I’ve thought about buying a big cage to put her in, and I have also considered euthanasia.
My cat is 16 next month. I took her to the vet but they didn’t find anything wrong and her bloodwork was normal. She has lost some weight, has had sporadic vomiting, and her appetite is inconsistent. I think she may have cancer started, but I started her on prednisolone and she has gained some weight back. She seems to be eating okay this week.
She does not use the box consistently and will go on the floor right in front of the box. I tried different litter but it hasn’t helped. Also switched to a lower box so she could enter it easier and that didn’t help either.
