  • Some cats do things to get your attention if they want something. Do you keep her bowls of food and water filled at all times? If not, maybe she's doing it because they're empty? My cats will drive me up the wall if they're out of anything.

  • Sometimes when cats are stressed out they'll potty anywhere's. Maybe the cat has a UTI? Its very common in cats.

  • I am sorry to hear it. Is her little box kept carefully clean? I may have mentioned before that when we were trying to keep our new kitten separate from the other cats during feeding so she could have kitten food, our older cat used the bathroom on our kitchen rug, Every time. As soon as we gave up and let him eat in the other room, he stopped that behavior. So what has changed from when your cat was being good and when she was trying for attention? Something such as a window blind being down instead of up, change of food, smelly litter. If you can't think of anything get her checked by a vet just in case there is something physical.

  • I am guessing she is a inside cat?Let her out once in a while.Also animals do know when someone doesn't like them.They seem to act out,by peeing in other places then apporitate places,or tear up items.

  • You could confine her to a large enough kennel with her litter box in it. re train her
