About a year ago a cat pooped on our brand new sofa and we assumed it was Chris. I even accused him in this post. We later realized it was Puck doing the bad deed (see here). We assumed he was doing it because the addition of the sofa interfered slightly with access to the litter boxes, so we moved them to a new location and the pooping stopped.
A couple of weeks ago the pooping started up again. I thought it was because our new addition, Floki, was adding to the amount of poop in the litter boxes and Puck didn’t like that. I scoop more often but it’s hard to keep up when I am sleeping or at work so we decided it was time for another litter box.
I went to PetSmart about two weeks ago on Sunday but their litter box choices were very poor. An employee told me a truck was coming in the next day but I needed something right away so I bought the biggest box that I could find, which my wife thought it was too small. I went back the next day but the selection was still terrible so I just returned it.
We went to a different PetSmart the following Saturday. I was looking for another Giant Litter Pan but the box in the center of the below picture was the best we could find. I should have just ordered it on Amazon since we waited almost a week just to settle for okay.
Since adding the new box, Puck has pooped on the sofa one time. I thought I might have to move the new box in front of it but I don’t want to do that so we will see if the badness continues.
I hope the poop-attacks will stop and your furkids like the new litterboxes…. it’s disappointing when you can’t find the thing you need in a store. we currently have no spot-on stuff in our stores, it’s sold out everywhere…probably we actually have lousy times here?
I like ordering stuff online because it’s easy but sometimes you just have to have something right away.
Uh oh. No one wants to be known as a couch pooper! I hope he stops.
Thanks. Me too.
Cats, the things we do for them. Hope the couch pooping stops. Good Luck.
Paws crossed Puck’s pooping issue is cleared up soon!
Hope this clears up the problem ! I clicked on the link to the giant litter box and wondered what the “built-in storage compartments” are for .
I put the scoop, bags and dust pan in them. The dust pan is too big but it still works.
We hope the couch pooping stops. The mom now buys the plastic storage boxes for sweaters, etc. and uses them as our litterboxes. Way cheaper than what the pet stores charge.
We did that too but they cracked after a short time.
Maybe you should put a litter box on the couch. KIDDING!!!
I’ve read that for each cat there should be one litter box.
True but our boxes are big.
… get an even bigger couch! 😉
If it happens again, I would move one of the boxes to a different location.
I agree. So far, so good.
Gosh…..couch pooping is definitely an undesirable happenstance! Hopefully once Puck has given his seal of approval to the litterboxes and location thereof, he will stop with the poop problem. Hopefully.
He has been good lately. Thanks.
Good! Hope it continues!
