Ok last night I was in the dining room playing with Biscuit and Milko and I could smell this 'pooey' sort of a smell. I couldn't see anything so didn't worry too much about it....just put it down to biscuit farting or whatever
Well earlier on we had a storm and Alex went to put my car away and he didn't shut the front door properly. I couldn't find Milko and started freaking out, thinking he must have gone outside. So I was calling out to him everywhere and eventually seen him come out from behind a cabinet we have in the dining room. I picked him to give him a hug and he smelt like poo. I checked behind the cabinet and there was THREE poos behind there....all fresh! I'm guessing the first one was from last night which is why I could smell it. I cleaned it up and steam cleaned the carpets until I could no longer smell it (ever put your nose to steaming hot carpet to smell poo before....gag worthy stuff let me tell you
) and I have pushed the cabinet right back so he can no longer get behind there (unless he jumps over the top but he is too little to do that yet and he will be getting sprayed the second he starts) but why would he do it?
At first I thought that he may have forgotten where his tray was but it wasn't adding up cause all the poos were fresh, and I would've thought he'd have done this when we first got him, rather than start now.
The woman that used to live here owned three cats (even though my p's had a no pet rule on the house a repairman my dad knew seen them all and dobbed her in, my p's did nothing about it) and so I'm wondering if one of her cats has gone to the toilet in that spot and when Milko went behind the cabinet (he only just got behind there in the last day or so) he smelt it and thought he could go there too. We've lived here for five months though and the woman was supposed to get the carpets professionally cleaned so would the smell still be there for him?
I just want to know the possible cause and whether he is likely to start going to the toilet in other places he shouldn't or if it's probably just something to do with that particular corner and now he can't go there, will go back to his litter tray.
OT....there will be Milko photos in the next few days.....my connection has gone back to dial up speed until the 19th and takes way too long to load a single picture....I'm not patient enough! But they are coming!
