I agree - it's best to be safe than sorry. I will make an appointment this week.

I think we are going to have to put a second litter box up on the main floor. We currently have one in the basement (we've always had just the one for two cats without incident prior). The current one is covered - I will probably stick to a covered one for upstairs as well. The one we have is scooped daily.

The only Feliway I have is the diffuser - not sure where to get the spray since I snagged this stuff through work (given I work for the pharma company). I initially got the Feliway to try and help Molly feel calmer.. and maybe even help Mr Miyagi calm down some.

I'm going to look for this litter tomorrow - thank you!
