Moved kitty litter, and now at least one cat is protesting

Move those on-purpose accidents to the litter box, where they belong (if they are move-able) and then show the cats that it goes there!

And make sure you spray the nursery with something that will ensure the cats don’t decide to just go in the old spot… they sell repellants at pet supply stores.

Also, is the litter box now closer to their food? Some cats really don’t like that at all (kind of like how most kitchens don’t have a bathroom right next to the table)

If you can figure out which cat it is, I would suggest limiting their space to the area near the litter box for a while and possibly adding a second litter box.  Some cats just don’t do well with change, so hopefully after a few weeks, they will be okay with it.  Also, make sure you use an enzyme cleaner where they have gone to remove the smell as much as you can.  Good luck!

Maybe consider getting a second litter box. My parents were having the same problem with one of their cats so they bought a second litter box and they haven’t had any problems since.
