My cat is driving my CRAZY!

We are working on potty training our youngest child, so any soiled underwear have been going in a plastic bag in the bathroom until I wash them.

Our cat has been crapping in the bathroom at night now. He hasn't used a catbox in a couple of years and did not do this when we potty trained the last child. Why would he start doing it now? UGH! It is sooo frustrating!

The dirty pants have to satay in the bathroom, I have no where else to put them. He has always been very good about going outside to poop, so I don't get it.

  • I would just keep the door closed so he can't get in the bathroom.

  • You may need to put a litter box in the bathroom for it. We had a cat that would only piss in the bathroom sink. It drove me nuts.

  • Yes I rinse the dirty pants.

  • Make sure there isn't something medically wrong with the cat too. Might just be a coincidence that it is happening at this time.
