pooping all over!

I have cat that I had to bottle feed from a kitten cause his mother was run over.  He was a few weeks old, and my mothers cat was hit by a car, leaving 4 kittens behind.  They were not going to worry about the one i took cause he was blind.  We took him home, bottle fed him, and about 3 months later, his eyes cleared up and he is able to see!!!  We have had problems with him since he was a kitten with not always using the litter box.  As he has gotten older, he is better, but he still refuses to use it all the time.  He will pick different places all over the house, and as we get him to stop in one place, he just finds another "favorite place" to go.   We have had him for 2 years.  He is nutered and declawed, but my husband is so beyond done with finding poo all over.  PLEASE help me so we can keep my little kitty!

Is he the only cat? If not it is suggested you have a litter box for each cat, plus one. They get very stressed about the litter boxes. If he's the only one, it is suggested that you keep it in the bathroom, not in a damp basement for instance. Also I tried the herbal litter with one of my cats who used to do this and she liked it, it is a clumping litter, I think it's called cat attract. Some cats won't go in a box that's covered. I had one box that was covered and they wouldn't use it, when I took the cover off, they all used it. (I have 3 cats.) One other suggestion is to keep the box clean, some cats don't like to use a box unless it's clean. Good luck!

Thanks, he is not the only cat, we have 2, and also 2 litterboxes.  They are cleaned every day, as i worried that may be the problem.  We have tried different kinds of litter.  All that happens is that he changes where he goes.  Thaks for trying.  It is getting to where i am not sure how much longer my husband is going to let me keep doing this.

You should clean the pee/poop spotsthoroughlywith a pet odor remover (Kids N Pets works really well), then again with a deep cleaning machine to make sure the smell is 100% gone. Then place tin foil over the soiled spots since cats hate foil.
