Litter Training Older Cat

No.2362012 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Over the years my cat seems to have unlearned how to use the litter box, and refuses to use it unless locked in a small room with it. This wasn't a problem in the past, as he would just go in our back yard, but a few years ago he was traumatized and refuses to go outside anymore. I've tried putting him in the box after naps, playtime, or meals, but that doesn't work. I lock him in a small room for a week (with food and frequent visits, of course) with just the litter box to go in, and slowly open up the house for him room by room after each successful week, but that doesn't stick either.

I'm at a loss at what to do, I'm starting to think that maybe rehabilitating him to go outdoors would be the best option, but I'm worried it'll traumatize him more or he'll get himself hurt.
