I have two cats and I recently got a new litter robot. Per the websites suggestions I put the litter robot next to the old litter box and stopped cleaning it to entice my cats to use the robot instead.
One of my cats has began using the robot but the other ended up pooping in my bathtub instead of the robot. I tried keeping him in the room for an hour with the robot so he’d be less afraid of it but he still wouldn’t go inside it. I left it switched off for about 3 days and I added their old litter to it.
I’m afraid if I clean out the old litter box that both cats will go back to the box, but I’m also afraid that if I take away the old litter box completely my one cat will continue to poop in the shower or in the corner somewhere.
