I have a cat who is completely declawed sad I know I didn't do it anyways she doesn't poop in her litter box any ideas? Btw she did when we first got her but after a week she started pooping in hallway and has ever since.
How long has she been doing this? Has she been checked by the vet? How old is she?
When cats doe this it is usually their way of telling us that they are not happy about something or that something is medically wrong. It could be the kitty litter, it could be that the litterbox is not clean enough for her. it could be anything.
I would have her checked by the vet and do blood work especially if she is an older cat. Then start doing some behavioral modifications.
How many litterboxs do you have? If you only have one I would get a second one. You might also get a comfort zone with feliway plug in because that can help with this issue. Also there is a kitty litter called cat attract that helps encourage cats to use the box
Another option if the behavioral modifications don't work is medication like Valium or prozac.
I have owned A LOT of cats over the many years. I'm 60..... I've had probably 10 cats over my life. ALL HAVE BEEN DECLAWED. I don't feel one bit guilty over it either. It gave them a great long long lifetime in a good home with us. They ruined far too much to let them be in and have those claws, sorry.
But, the declaw did not make any one of them stop using the box. When they were recovering, we just used shredded newspaper. Then went back to the usual.
When they began to do odd potty things, I would observe everything. I discovered I could NOT own more than two cats at a time, it seems 3 would trigger peeing, marking in the house!
My current cat was pooping out of the pan- I watched him close, his stools were too hard, he would begin in the pan, then leave it, still trying to defecate.
He is on a more canned food now than kibble, and he gets a small daily maintainence dose of Miralax which keeps his stools the right consistency.
He stopped pooping in the hallway! I keep the pans super super clean too.
They do make special litter for declaws, try that.
Also they have this special kitten litter that 'attracts' them to it. I fostered kittens and my one kitten would NOT shit in the damn box. I put that in and it worked like magic. It was like 8$ a tiny bag but I only had to do it once!
