Hello everyone, just a month ago my family became the happy owners of a
6 month old bengal kitten, She seems to have aquired a quite horriblehabit of pooping on our beds. She also uses her litter but if we forget the bedroom doors open she prefers to poop on the bed.I tried sprinkling lavender oil on the beds ,but it does not help.Keeping the bedroom doors shut helped, but the children ,sometimes forget to shut and then..and it cant be a permanant solution.

When an animal defecates or urinates inappropriately you must rule out medical before behavioral. Bengal are very territorial and are know to be jealous very easily.
Animals also sense problems in the environment can and react to them

also do you only have one box you may want to add another one

Also, I'd not bother with the lavender oil. My cat, at least, loves the smell of lavender.

Sounds like you need some training..For the children! - Teach them to strip the bed and run everything through the laundry, and then remake the bed..You will be amazed at how well they will be able to remember to keep the bedroom door shut..

To be honest, it doesn't help my cat much. Or, it's better to say, it helps occasionally. Sometimes he will keep on peeing where he likes... but sometimes he will stop indeed. Maybe he has his moods too, when he deliberately wants to bother us, hehe.

WRONG all you did was just tell them where a good spot was to keep going. That is outdated stone age backwards alpha male training

Great useless advice from the stone age
Great useless advice from the stone age

For a kitten: Make sure a clean litter pan (or two) is easily accessible le. Place the kitten gently in the pan and help it make scratching motions with its paw, then press (gently) it's rear into sitting position. I have seen tiny kittens instinctively run as fast as their tiny legs can move them to get to a pan. But it has to be close at hand. Remember, this is a baby. And forget the nose trick that is disgusting. Best wishes. MLB
