Foil To Prevent Pet Accidents

We had a problem with one of our cats pooping around the litter box, but not in it. In fact, she really liked the bathroom rug. Our vet recommended we lay down foil in the places she was pooping, because they don't like the feel of foil on their paws. Well, we covered the entire space where she was going except for the litter box and a small path to it. It worked like a charm. Kept at it for a while, then slowly started removing the foil. If she started back to her little habit, we put the foil right back. This took a while, but Ms. Kitty finally got the message!

I'm wondering if the foil should be flat or somewhat wrinkled?

Tried this... more than once. Didn't work with my cats. One of them is always peeing on my island counter and I tried putting foil down. In fact I did it 3 different times...1 shiny up; 1 shiny down; 1 with foil all wrinkly. All I did was waste foil!
