There's your problem right there. You need to somehow show him that he's still important. I kinda had the same problem with my cat.

She was our first, and since then we've added 4 more, plus my dog. She was okay with the second addition, because she was still a kitten when we brought him home, and they're related. The rest of them, she just hates. She hates the dog too. And for a while, she'd just lock herself up in either my room, or my dads, and not eat, or really, do anything. And she was just miserable. Wouldn't use the litter box either. She'd deliberately go to it, but go on the floor right next to it, just to make us mad. All I did was spend more time with her, than I was spending with the kittens and she got the message that she wasn't being replaced or anything. The problems went away.

She actually helps out with the other cats and the dog now. Especially when the dog is whining in its crate. She comes up, meows at it in a certain way, and the dog shuts up. It's amazing. I want to know what the heck she says to it, lol.

You would seriously have a cat basically sentenced to death because he pooped and buried it in your yard? That is sad...

If the owner cares about the cat, they will take it inside.

THe cat is not pooping and burying it in my yard. He poops in the middle of the yard, so people ranging from myself, my dog to my little 4 year old cousin, have stepped in it. In the past other cats have ruined flowerbeds and gardens. I know of other people that have had wild birds they spend incredible amounts of money on (to encourage them to pollinate their garden, to spend time in the area since they are avid birdwatchers, etc) killed by their neighbors cats.

If they are concerned about what happens to their cats, they should keep them inside.

This is a never ending debate on here and alot of people are going to continue to allow their cats to roam around and say it is best for them.

I would worry about your dog getting close to that though, you dont know if that cat is healthy and what could be in its feces.

Heh, my oldest cats are like that. :P

They have a sandbox outside that they like using.

Well, not so much a sandbox, as a sandpile. It was originally going to be used for landscaping the yard, but then they took over, lol.

Ok, so I tried everything and to no avail is working. I even got the carpets professionally cleaned and put my cat in the bedroom with hardwoods. He's good unless there is carpet. I let him out for a second and he tried to pee.

Do I have a choice but to put him outside???

...so we punish the cat. Seems fair.

To orginal poster, putting your cat outside only confirms that he is not loved anymore since you added other animals. But it is the easy way for you, yes?
