Ellison was rescued from a neglectful situation at 62nd and Ellis. His "owner" dumped him on the street saying that he didn't use his litter box properly. He still followed her and other people in the street, crying for help, but was ignored until Nancy came along. He was very thin and jumped right into her car trunk to eat an open bag of cat food. Since then, he has filled out and is sweet and loving, to people and to other cats (not dog-tested). He tested neg/neg and is microchipped and up to date on vaccinations. He's only eight months old and is a healthy, playful kitten.
Ellison has been neutered and guess what, he now has no litterbox problems. Unneutered male cats will mark their territory, and that includes spraying anywhere OTHER than the litterbox. This behavior is different than just peeing outside of the box by accident. People, have your pets spayed and neutered! There are even some low-cost options.
