My cat is eighteen years old, and he refuses to do his business in his litterbox anymore. I understand that this is probably due to his age, but it is really causing a problem and nothing I do seems to help. Does anyone know of anything I can do that might make him start using his box again?
Thank you for any help.

He has portions of the house where he will urinate and defecate and no matter if there is food nearby or a clean litterbox…how do I get him to stop going other places than the floor?
My 14 week old kitten was recently diagnosed with a UTI and was peeing in the air conditioning vents instead of the litterbox. (cool air must have felt good) Any ideas on how to re-train her to use the litterbox once she is better?
