    Will your cat go down the cellar stairs? I adopted two adult cats. I put the litter box in the basement, showed them where it was. Done deal. Not really. I kept coming home and finding someone had done their business in my plants. I finally figured out my cat Nox is TERRIFIED of the cellar stairs. I tried training her with treats… I finally gave up. Her litter is now in the utility room. Of course I also had a cat that when we left her, in her opinion, too long, she would pee in the middle of all of our beds. But if the litter wasn’t in the basement before, it might be the stairs. Good Luck.

  2. If this continues, you might want to take her to the vet to make sure she doesn’t have a urine infection or something else going on. The stress of the move could have easily caused one. Also make sure she is not kicking litter into her food or she might really get sick. (I used to work at an animal sanctuary.)

    • Her urine looks and smells fine. Well, as fine as cat urine can smell. She’s active, running all over the house. I think she’s just ticked that her litter, which was in my office by necessity for the last four years, has been moved. Last resort, I’ll move it back but it is so nice to finally do yoga without getting litter all over my hands!

      Oh, and don’t worry, her food is actually in a room adjacent to her litter. Thanks!

    Have you ruled out a urinary tract infection? Also please research feline lower urinary tract disease. Hope that helps!

  4. New house, new litter box, new location – she’s likely just in protest mode then. I’m sure she’ll settle down. Good luck with everything – you have so much to look forward to!

  5. Oh dear. I moved five years ago and one of my cats peed on the packed boxes in the old house and on everything he didn’t feel belonged in the new house. I put up with it for THREE long years and finally put him down. A new filter for my exhaust fan in the kitchen was on the table, newly purchased and yep… Got a big dollhouse for my grandkids. They played in it. He peed in it. Guest wore extra slippers I let them wear. Yep. Peed on them and on and on.
    Hope your cat comes around. Sometimes you can’t teach an old cat new tricks… 🙂
