    Default Crazy pooing cat trouble

    My cat seeks out my garden to do his business... How do I stop him and make him go elsewhere? He doesn't like kitty litter.

    Try replacing the litter with the dirt from the garden. Then, once he is used to using the tray, start adding litter to the dirt, slowly reducing the amount of dirt. Eventually he should use the litter tray. I did the same routine but backwards to train my cat to go outside instead of the tray

    Default Crazy pooing cat trouble

    I hate cleaning out kitty litter and love that my cat prefers to do his business outside.

    We have cats that loved using our vegetable garden for that purpose. we tried lots of things but the one thing thatworked best was sprinkling chilli powder near the chilli plant and gradually spreading it across the entire garden. He eventually learnt that if something smelled like chilli to stay away. The chilli also helps keeps some garden pests away as well. We tried lots of things and one particular cat is very stubborn and doesn't clue on too well.

    Sounds a bit gross but can you move some of the poo to a section of the garden where you're happy for him to go, where the plants won't be damaged? I've heard that sort of things works for dogs if you want move where they do their business. Also when my cat was having trouble remembering to use his litter our vet said to keep the littler clean but not too clean as it should "smell like its purpose" in his words. So maybe if he can smell the poo on the right spot he might understand you want him to go there??

    We tried that with our cat but found it encouraged them even more but then again our cat (who we adopted of others who were talking of dumping him) is pretty thick IyKWIM
