Cat and Kittens Feisty and Not Using Letterbox

I have three cats. Freddy is 8 mos and fixed. Kiki is 7 months and not fixed yet. Rocky is 2 and fixed. We'll just say my husband isn't patient when it comes to their behaviors. Freddy is skittish but very affectionate. He will headbutt you until you have a headache. But, he pees and poops (mostly pees) on furniture and the floor right in front of you. I know he's trying to communicate, but my husband just thinks he's being bad. He seems healthy, so I think it's behavioral. It's strange that he will stare you in the face as he does it. Today he peed on the floor right in front of my husband as he came home.

Kiki is just naughty. I'm a teacher and she loves to help me grade papers. Freddy and Kiki now jump in the trash can. Kiki chews on anything she can sink he teeth into.

Rocky is our fatso. She's been on a diet and lost 3 lbs, but she's still big and because we have two other cats and both work we can't keep them from eating each others food. Rocky is fluffy and sweet, but she has pooping problems and drags it places. My husband says she's naughty and poops places, but she doesn't. She's a long hair and it gets stuck. I'm sure her weight makes cleaning difficult also.

What do I do with these cats? I'm on vacation so I've been home most everyday. Today I had to deal with car issues and I think that's what is wrong with Freddy. Kiki is a little monster. She's the boss around here. At 7lbs she flips 14 lb Rocky. I don't know what to do about her mischievousness. Rocky needs to be shaved and I'm scared to do it even though we have the tool. I don't want to hurt her.
Any advice, suggestions of other issues?

Well, kitties are lively, but your bunch does seem a bit over the top! Cats have definite personalities, and I sense some rivalry and stress. Maybe Kiki is annoying the others when they want to use the litterbox; separating her from the others when you are out would help there. Also, they would need at least 3 litter trays in nice secure places.

Also make resting-places - high up and fairly inaccessible, say a cushion on top of a cupboard - for the pestered cats to have some peace.

Trim Rocky's fur a bit at a time, so that it is not too traumatic for both of you.

Kiki may settle down as she ages, but don't count on it. Our Pippin is only settling now - at 10 years!

Add more litter boxes. You may have to seperate them some-put them in different rooms with a litter box when your not home so they can have some quiet time
