I'm in need of some serious help. We have a 9 year old cat that I've had since he was a kitten. DH has been trying to get rid of him for almost 4 years now but I refuse. I'm not one to give up pets. I'm of the "adoption is for life" school. But...now we're having some big issues. He decided a few weeks ago that he no longer wants to use his litter box. He is peeing and pooping everywhere. Hallway, dog beds, sofa, living room carpet...It's out of control. We tried changing his litter, cleaning the box more frequently, and locking him in the laundry room when we're not home. None of it is helping. We have an appointment for the vet wednesday to make sure he's not having a UTI or other issues. I'm terrified that they'll say nothing is wrong because...then what?? Add to this...he bit DD. I'm too afraid to tell DH because if he knew that, it'd be the end of it. It wasn't hard at all, and didn't break the skin. She was laying all over him and he just got irritated. Normal cat behavior, but not something I want around her. WWYD?
