I have a two year old female kitty who is peeing outside the litter box on my back door and in my bedroom on the wall.

These two places mainly. I have taken her to the vet and she was treated for a urine tract infection, but that is all cleared up.

I can't seem to get her to go back to the litter box. He prescribed a drug for her since he feels it is a behavioral issue now, but the drug just really makes her pitiful acting and I feel sorry for her and it made her sick one time after I gave it to her so now I won't give it to her.

I have tried scent attracting litters, cleaners, sprays, everything I can find or suggestions.
I don't know what else to try.

If anyone has any other suggestions, please let me know. I will not put her in a shelter, as I rescued this cat from a certain death when I got her and I couldn't do that to her.

I hate to think of moving her in the garage to live as she loves being with us. I am just lost as to what to do.

I have three other cats(all rescues) and they don't have this problem. Here's a picture of Miss Mao Mao. Isn't she beautiful?!

Anyone with suggestions let me know. Thanks,

My Thoughts:

She's gorgeous.

Have you read my response to this litter box problem?

In extreme cases, where you've tried all the "make the litter box more attractive and everywhere else unattractive methods," the best method may be to confine your cat to a room and totally retrain her to use the litter box.

I normally would say that I hate that idea, but it's sometimes best and has proven to work in some cases. She has probably associated a negative experience with the box, so you have to shake things up a bit.

Here's a situation where isolation retraining worked.
