Has there been anything new that's stressing the cat?

You have 2 other cats, right? How many litter boxes do you have? If you have 3 cats, ideally you should have 4 litter boxes, preferably in different parts of the house. Stewie may also have an aversion to the litter you're using, in which case I highly recommend picking up some Cat Attract (http://www.preciouscat.com/precious-attract-p-5.html) litter, or at least offering him a few different varieties to see if there's something else he prefers.

Were you ever able to track down some Feliway? It could be that he's stressed living in a multi-cat household. Is there a separate room you could confine him in for a while with his own litter box to see if that makes a difference? Other than that, check out this website: http://www.catinfo.org/litterbox.htm for more tips, if you haven't already.

Hi there,

We are going to get another box for sure...that would be 3 boxes. We give him the most attention in hopes that it's enough but....


Anyways, we're watching him like a hawk now and hopefully this is something he will out grow before a set-in-stone habit occurs.

Thanks!
