We have a 14 year old female cat. Very active, just a little slow. She now has decided to poop in her box, but cannot seem to pee in it. Any help? Thanks.

Does it have a bladder infection? If not go to this website:
Hope this improves the situation. Bless it's little heart!

She's getting on in her years and they don't do something like that unless there has been a big change or they are not well. Get your kitty to a vet first to see what is going on. (04/07/2009)
We have a cat who is 11 years old now. About 5-6 years ago, our cat did the same thing. After lots of trying different things (multiple litter boxes, restricting her to 1 room, etc.) our vet finally discovered she had a bladder stone (similar to kidney stones in people). Hers were caused by an improper PH balance in her urine. We tried medication to dissolve the stone, but she ultimately had to have surgery to remove the stone and is now on special food to prevent stones from reoccurring. She has had 1 bout with a bladder infection since that time that antibiotics cleared up. My suggestion would be to take your cat to your vet and have them check her urine PH balance. Your cat may have a simple bladder infection or could be stones causing the problem. (04/08/2009)
If the cat is a little over weight this is normal. They dig the hole in the corner and then pee over the top of it. Mine did that before when she was going on the floor and missing the hole she dug all together. She would kick the kitty litter all over the floor trying to cover it up. Build the kitty litter box up with cardboard, but leave enough space for her to get in. This may help a bit. It worked for me. (02/08/2010)
