Our question this week was:Dr. Jon - My cat is an outdoor cat during the day but kept inside at night. She was using the litter box nightly until I changed the brand of cat litter and now she does not use the litter box all.
Hi – thanks for your email Claudette. You wrote that you recently changed brands of litter and now your cat won't use the litterbox at all. That is a relatively common problem.
I'd recommend going back to the old liter as soon as possible. Some cats really have preferences of type, texture and smell.
An article that might be helpful to you is Cat Litter - How to Select the Best Cat Litter
. This article will give you a lot more information but the number one thing in choosing a litter is to choose one YOUR cat likes.
Best of luck!
