How can i get my cat to stop pooping on the floor?

The first thing to do to stop your cat from pooping on the floor is to be sure the litter box is cleaned regularly and often. Cats are very fussy about this. Always put the litter box in the same place once cleaned and disinfected. If you find “accidents” on the floor, place them in the litter box to send the message, “this is where it goes.” 

You can try using spray repellents around the home where the cat frequents. Most sprays are labeled for dogs but work for cats as well. You may also need to restrict your cat to certain areas of the home where you can monitor the situation more closely until the cat stops having accidents. Thoroughly clean any accident spots with an enzyme cleaner so there are no repeat offenses. If there is still a problem and you can’t get it under control, you may need vet assistance.
