    I wouldnt walk in on here but be there with the treat as she exits...because she is an indoor cat I think that couldwork. Alternatively foil or plastic bags but that would probably work best if she chooses the same area. Good luck and let us know how it goes. Its a good thing we love them so much!

    Oddly enough if you do clean the soiled areas with any kind of strong chemical particularly bleach that won't deter them...often cats are attracted to the chlorine it has been suggested it is connected to their pheromones...triggering a hormonal reaction...usually cats 'mark' as a protest...I do remember my old cat Gorgeous who did exactly the same when the boyfriend arrived...try a little catnip heading towards the litter tray then a teeny amount in the tray...do you have catnip there?

    There's too much money involved for a swift solution Debs...the useless courses must cost an absolute fortune...the facilitators conducting them are paid...the CCG's who interpret the NICE guidelines narrowly/incorrectly and refuse in the main to allow GP's to prescribe or recommend testing for non insulin dependant T2's to test are on six figures salaries...and then of course Doctor & nurse always know best!...that is what we have to contend with...there is a lot of money in health management...there's a lot of money in health mismanagement too...it's a long road to the truth.
