Female Siamese cat is pooping on clothes and carpet

by mk

We have two older male tabbies, fixed. We have a young female Siamese and a white moo cow looking kitty female both UNFIXED. They were my daughter's cats. So four cats.

The female Siamese is pooping in the dining room on clothes and carpet. She will pull papers down off the table and go on them. HELP.

She has lost weight and cries after pooping and peeing in the dining room. Her eyes are bright and coat looks good but she does not gain weight. She plays and is active.

How do I get her to stop pooping in the living room and dining room. HELP.

My thoughts: I'm sorry to hear your cat is having problems. Getting her fixed may help.

Also, if she used to be your daughter's cat, I'm not sure if maybe she had a hard time with the transition. If so, isolating her for a while may help, so you can reintegrate her into the household slowly.

If she's lost weight and is too thin and not gaining weight, or losing weight but eating a lot, she may have an illness, such as diabetes or hyperthyroidism. The only way to know for sure is to take her to the vet.

She may also have lost weight due to stress, which is also a big factor in litter box problems. Reducing her stress levels may help, and again, isolating her with her own litter box may be revealing.

From the behavior you describe, she may have a problem with her urinary tract. In any case, I think the weight loss is concerning, and along with the other factors, I think a medical professional's opinion would be advised.

If she were my cat, I would call the veterinarian and get her checked out with this problem in mind.

I hope that helps and please let us know how she comes along.
