Dont know what to do?
Topic: Dont know what to do?
April 25, 2019 / By Andrew Question:
My cat has been pooping on the floor since my mom got pregnant, the baby is here and he is still doing this. I understand why its happening (he thinks hes not gonna get any attention) but how can I stop it or could it just not be this at all?
Some info, this may help:
Born on March 1st 2003 (7 years old)
Flame Point Himalayan
My 1 1/2 year old kitten ran away, he misses her, but my friends keep seeing her, possibility to get her back
We put him on a little diet (1/2 cup of food two times a day, he was 26 lbs and overweight for his age, could lead to diabetes, etc. Now about 16 lbs)
Tried training him again by putting his poo in the litter box (a black litter robot) and teaching him to bury it, tried this multiple times
Big brother scares him a lot, stresses him out.
I do not know if any of this info helps but I don't know what to do.
Well, here is the thing. He will not eat wet food mixed with dry food, and it was the amount of food we were feeding him. Im sure. We used to feed him a careless four or five cups a day, he got to thirty lbs. As for the big brother, it is my 25 year old big brother. My cat loves me, he sleeps at the and of the bed at night, he is trained to stay, sit, lay down, come, and I talk to him alot and he almost always responds back. A few weeks ago I talked to my family, they all agreed to give him nice attention except for my brother who never pays attention, and since we havent been doing anything to him thats bad, we just train him again. I think you guys are all right, weve tried disciplining him, retraining him and one thing almost worked. When I was walking by the litter robot (which he has never been afraid of) he was getting into it. Then he saw me. Since im his companion, he automatically went to me for some reason. He pooed twice yesterday. I will try doing what you guys said.
Here is more interesting info:
he poos right next to the litterbox
we think its because litter gets spilled on the floor right next to the litter box, and he poops there. we tried cleaning up the litter. didn't work
could be that there is a smell there of his poo, he thinks thats his territory. Clean it up almost every time with lysol wipe. doesn't work.
retaining him. almost worked

What do you mean Big brother stresses him out? Is that another cat? If our cat doesn't feel safe while going about his business, he will go elsewhere. Try putting his litter box to a quieter place where he can't be disturbed by other cats or humans. Also the robot might be freaking him out.
As for the diet, read the website I list at the bottom. It's not amount of food that's making your cat fat, but the ingredients. Most of commercial food are stuffed with grain (carbs) and have little nutrition for the cat. As a result, it needs to eat more to meet it's needs and consumes more calories in the process. Reducing the amount of already non-nutritious food can lead to malnutrition. Also while obese cats are more prone to diabetes, obesity itself is not the cause. The cause are the carbs and you should go for grain-free wet food if you want him to lose weight in a healthy manner.
These guidelines apply for all cats: skinny, fat, sick, healthy, they all need the same to maintain a proper weight and health.
I can't recommend feeding ANY dry food. Cats are designed to get their water from food. That's the way nature designed them, they have low thirst drive. When fed dry, they won't drink enough to compensate for the lack of moisture. They will only consume about 50% of the water they should be having. This can lead to kidney disease, UTI, crystals, blockage, renal failure and more. Especially since you have a tom, this is crucial. Male cats have narrower urethra than female cats and are more prone to blockage from the crystals.
Free feeding also leads to obesity. And the fact that dry food is over-processed means, that most of it’s little nutrition has been already destroyed, leaving almost no nutrients for your cat. It needs to eat more to meet it’s needs, and in the process consumes more calories from the fillers.
Btw wetting the dry food will not help. There’s bacteria on the kibble and the water would just allow it to grow.
The only way to give the cat it's natural hydration is to feed it wet food only.
But some wet foods are junk too. That goes for most commercial foods. Just like the dry, they are often made with cheap fillers such as corn, wheat, soy, rice etc. These are not a part of cat's natural diet (it’s an obligate carnivore – it eats meat!) and they are not designed to digest it. Grain is carbohydrate which the cats can't process and it turns into blood sugar and fat, causing diabetes and obesity. In the wild, where cats only hunt for meat, diabetes and obesity are unheard of. It's us who cause these by feeding a species inappropriate food.
The healthiest food to feed apart from raw feeding is grain-free wet food with no by-product. Learn to read the label and understand the ingredients. Some good brands are Wellness CORE, EVO, Merrick, Nature's Variety, Blue Buffalo Wilderness and more. These will give your cat the proper hydration and nutrition it's designed to get and it will be strong and healthy.
If you switch it's diet, do it gradually, by mixing the current food with the new one over couple of weeks until there's only the new. This will prevent diarrhea and upset stomach.

Reading about the Fat Loss 4 Idiots Diet makes you wonder if they might not be on to something. The way the diet works is different than other fad diets that involve cutting out certain types of food like low carbohydrates, low fat or low calorie. Instead it uses calorie shifting foods that you would normally eat, increases the number of times you eat, and changes when you eat certain things for fast fat loss.
What is Calorie Shifting?
The way calorie shifting works involves tricking the fat hormones that are sent out by the brain. Every time you eat something, your brain sends out fat storing and fat burning hormones, depending on what the item is.
The idea is to send more fat burning than fat storing hormones, so that the body does not hold onto the fat for later use. If you keep confusing the metabolism, you will see fast fat loss, as much as 9 pounds in 11 days, that is the first weightloss principle of Fat Loss 4 Idiots Diet.
How Does The Metabolism Control Weightloss?
This scientific weight control fact about the metabolism and how it works stems from our ancestry as cavemen, when there were famine periods between hunts. The body would store and hold onto fat for survival. The metabolism has not evolved from this self-defense tactic and doesn't realize we can just run to the grocery store and get whatever we want.
On restrictive diets, weightloss can plateau when the metabolism thinks it is experiencing a famine period, and it will only burn what is taken in. Even on some of the popular low carbohydrate diets, it is advised to eat pizza for two days when your weight plateaus to get the metabolism going.
Why Do Some Weightloss Diets Leave You With No Energy?
The only problem with many of these restrictive weightloss diets is the metabolism goes back to only burning what you take in and many people complain about being tired and worn down, when it is mainly the metabolism storing up the energy for later.
By eating healthy, nutritious foods that are fat burning, the metabolism burns as much energy as you need. Many people on restrictive weightloss diets will regain the weight when they go back to eating normal foods.
What Is The Best Diet For Weightloss?
The best weight control diet allows you to eat the foods that you would normally eat, have in your refrigerator and cabinets. By timing when you eat certain foods, how many times a day you eat them, and balancing the types of food, your metabolism will burn what you take in and then some, because it knows you will be feeding it again shortly, instead of starving.
Prepackaged fat loss products and frozen dinners are not something you can live on the rest of your live. You need to understand the basics of natural weight control, and Fat Loss 4 Idiots Diet uses the fundamental principles of controlling the metabolism with calorie shifting normal foods you eat every day.
Check my source, it might help. It's a diet that works. Good luck!

Cats will do this for two reasons they dont know how to use a litter box or they feel stressed. I think your brother is causing this. Try to help your cat by relaxing it like playing with him to make is feel less stressed.

you are probably right by the attention thing. Try giving him more attention than usual. And if he still poops everywhere u need to almost retrain him. Or scold him. i hope this helps and good luck

A lot of times, people who are thin are used to eating a small
amount of food. When they say they are eating a ton of food, they may actually be underestimating what they eat. I think it is a good idea to see a doctor and get some blood work done.
Until then, I would suggest a few things. First of all, don't eat a ton of really fatty foods to gain weight. You want to include a diet with variety and balance. You need a good balance of fat, protein, and carbohydrates. Secondly, I would suggest you go to www.mypyramid.gov. Calculate how many calories you need. Add approximately 500 calories to what the website tells you. Eat a lot of food that is dense in calories like nuts, peanut butter, cheese, and so on.
After you figure out the calories you should be eating, go to a website like www.fitday.com. It is a free website that you can use, but you just have to make an account. You can set weight goals and do a ton of other stuff on it. The main thing is that you should record the food you eat daily. It tallies it up for you and gives you the amount of calories you are consuming. It also breaks the nutrients you are eating down for you. It is very interesting to see. The most important thing is to be very accurate on the website about the foods you eat and the amount of food you are eating. This should help you out. Also, show a list of foods that you would typically eat in three days to a doctor or a registered dietitian for more information. Good luck!
