Well, she isn't actually mine, she is a stray that has been in my neighborhood for at least five years, maybe even longer. All of a sudden she has adopted me and my house. She is such a sweet heart, she loves my grandchildren and in turn they love her (my granddaughter named her). The only problem is I am worried that she will not use the litter box due to the fact that she has lived outside all the years. Any suggestions? I would love to let her stay in.

Stray cats & litter boxes
by: Donald Hargrove

Hi, Tami!

My wife & I have brought inside many, many stray cats & we've seldom had a litter box problem with any of them. Just show her the box & rub her front paws into it & she'll know what it is.

Most litter box problems have to do with placement (they like to feel secure - esp when there are other cats or animals). Or with materials (our cats never took to any of the fancy stuff). Or with the box being too full. Lastly & most importantly -- if they have a medical problem, such as a urinary one.

Never assume that a cat is being bad without a reason & you'll do fine.
