Ok I think my cat is taunting me....
He has a very annoying habit of doing poops on my bed and I can't figure out why.
Initially it was when he was new and related to any changes in the home or us being away which I guess must have been stressful.
We changed his litter - he pooped on the bed. Each time we got back from holiday he pooped on the bed. He pooped under the dinning table whilst we were away (my brother was house sitting). We bought a new and rather overpriced sofa (it was our first piece of new furniture as a couple.) I got home from work the day it arrived to find a poop on the velvet cover. I cleaned it up and it happened twice after that. Eventually he stopped pooping on it and touch wood no accidents since then.
He's fine when we travel now but for some reason on the odd occasion he still likes to poop on the bed.
Now, he does warn us which is the bit I can't work out. So before he poops he basically meows very loudly from the bed room - if we don't go and see him he'll take a Poop on the bed!! How mean is that!?
We give him tones of attention and with lots of love and strokes. He has toys that we rotate to keep him entertained and his litter tray is very well maintained, an ipad of cat games (it's fine to judge me most my friends do). He has a fully organic diet and get's garden time twice a day. We've also got another cat and they get on very well.
I've put this pooping down to attention seeking but I just don't know how to stop it. I already give him lots of love and attention. If anyone has any clues to stop this irritating behavior please let me know.
