My cat won't pee in the litter box

Q:
 
I love my cat but she started peeing on my carpet and bath mat. What can I do to solve this problem, and what can I do to eliminate the odor?

"24oz Nature's Miracle Just for Cats Stain & Odor Remover"

Natumate Pet Stain & Odor Remover 1 gal.

A:
I have several suggestions, because your cat could be doing this for different reasons. Some cats are extremely picky about the cleanliness of their litter box, so one thing you may want to try is scooping it more frequently like once a day. Make sure the litter box is in a good location, accessible but not too close to her food or lots of activity. Most cats like privacy when they're using it. If that doesn't work you can try a different type of litter, or a larger box. You can also retrain her. The best way to do that is to put her in a room like a bathroom where the litter box is the only thing that's absorbent. Keep her in there until she uses it. It may take a while, so make sure she still gets attention and fresh water/food (not close to litter box). If you have other cats using the same box, that could also be the problem. That was the problem I had with my cat, and she needed her own box.
For odor elimination there are several good products. I highly recommend Nature's Miracle specially made for cat stains and odor. Nature's Miracle also has a great cat litter that I use. It's all natural, clumps, smells great, and doesn't give off any dust. It's good to get the odor out not only for your nose, but it will also help to prevent your cat from peeing in those areas again. Good Luck! I hope this was helpful.
