Timmy says good morning! May I have some of your tea? No? Then why do you come into the catio every day this way?. It's torture, you know, when you sit there having toast and tea without offering us a treat too! Oh cruel cat mom! Note: Timmy says this while standing on my lap! Standing! I say! He weighs a ton!

Every so often he does not use the litter box. He chooses instead any receptacle made of plastic, such as an empty laundry basket, though there are plenty litter boxes about the house.
He has also occasionally peed on the guest bed, and a couple times on the carpet. I had to replace the mattress. It was so unsalvageable. The carpet, I used a product that removes the stain and odor.
I hope this doesn't turn out to be a medical issue. ManCats do have problems that way. It can be quite painful for them, and quite expensive at the vet's to treat it. If it's a behavior problem, I am still trying to figure it out.
Could be because his first two years were spent in a van with a homeless family. As he grew up, he got to have more freedom and often went outdoors to play. Perhaps he finds being confined to the house too stressful. Or maybe I'm not cleaning out the litter box often enough. Or, maybe it's the brand of litter I'm using. Or just plain stress?
