We have an 11 month old female Maine Coon and have tried everything to get her to poop in her litter box.  She pees just fine, but for some reason will poop outside the box in the 2 rooms where we do have litter boxes.  I've tried additional boxes, different boxes, different litter/media, attractants, etc. all to no avail.  The strange part is she always uses it to pee, so not sure why she won't poop in it.  We have a male Maine coon (her brother) and an older (5 yrs) regular house cat who use any of the 3 boxes we have just fine..

 

Looking for some ideas that maybe we haven't tried.  Also thinking about trying to "toilet" train her, but not sure if anyone's had luck with that.

 

Thanks for any advice!

How big is your litter box? We had to get a jumbo litter box because our female would be in the litter box but miss over the edge.

We have 3, all pretty good size.  The male "kirten" is almost 15# (she's probably 11) and uses them all with no problem.  The perplexing part is she pees in them just fine, no issues there, just refuses to poop.  Very odd.
