Does your cat urinate outside the litter box? Many cats who do not use their litter boxes regularly have a urinary tract infection. If your kitty has a bladder infection, no amount of behavior modification will help. It is very important to check a urinalysis to rule out the possibility that your kitty has a bladder infection. If there is no medical reason for your kitty’s behavior and the litter box is still being ignored, there are many options on how to approach resolving this issue.
Cats are sensitive creatures and can suffer from anxiety disorders just as people and dogs can. They can experience generalized anxiety disorders or more specific anxiety issues.

- Over-ownership of space
- Feel threatened by other animal
- Separation anxiety
