My cat is pooping around the house

My daughter is a year and a half old. My two cats love her so much they think she is their daughter. I just found out I am 6 weeks pregnant. Marcella ,my dominate cat has begun pooping all over the house. I do not know what to do. I do not have the money to replace my rugs to tile or hardwood. I am afraid she will start to do this upstairs also. It is bad enough she is ruining my rugs downstairs. This is were my daughter plays. Please help !

    It is definetly poop. No pee pee outside the litter box. I buy it at BJ's. It is Berkley & Jenson brand , with baking soda and fresh scent. The only time in 9 years one has had an accident is last Nov. ,when I went to Florida.

    Since I found out I was pregnant I let my husband change the litter. I did change it twice with a bag over my hand. Is that bad ?

    Are you sure that its poop & not hairballs ? Sometimes its difficult to tell except by smelling it whilst wet. I have 3 cats(+ 2 dogs). Perhaps your cat is ill, or has developped an aversion to your choice of litter (if you have recently changed litter, go back to what you were using before). Its very important that pregnant women not handle cat feces or change cat litter or scoop it, as there is a disease that some cats carry that results in miscarriages. Is the cat pooping only ? Or peeing outside the litter box as well ? Do you mix baking soda in the cat litter ? Are you using scoopable litter, or clay? Or wheat? Scented or unscented ?

I have a cat that will occasionally do this as well. I understand you not wanting your carpets messed up! I didn't either. But what I have found that works is to buy a worm medicine. I'm pretty sure you can buy it at Walmart or some place like that. It's not real expensive. You just follow the instructions on the bottle. After a day my cat was fine.

Hi there,

OK, so the fact your cat has just started to do this is a sign it could be feeling a tad threatened. Has any other pets been introduced to the family? Is there any way other cats could have been allowed to gain access to your house? Or it may be a small change such as moving the litter box or perhaps even moving a lot of things around the house (moving rooms?).

The reason being 'middening' is not only marking a scent, but is a visual sign of marking its territory. Firstly you need to get to the bottom of why this is happening and then concentrate on stopping the problem.

- Do not scould or discipline the cat, you have to make him feel safe and secure again

- You could try confining the cat to one room, or in a pen. It may seem an extreme move but its all about making the cat feel comfortable again and able to use his litter tray with confidence. He will not be middening for no reason and the situation must be treated seriously. Re-introduce the cat to the rest of the house slowly and monitor any changes in behaviour or continued pooing.

- Make sure you stop anything thats unsettling the cat, such as other cats using cat flap etc and not leaving him alone for long periods of time.

- If this behaviour reucurrs before the wee one is born, you may need to introduce them to each other slowly. We don't want the cat to feel pushed out or threatened again.

I hope this was of some help.

Danger :)

I believe the disease is passed in the air, not by contact. Check with your doctor.
