So a few months ago we adopted a pal for my neutered boy Wesley. He and Bluebell have since become a very close bonded pair. When we adopted Bluebell, she seemed pretty good with litter training - a few pills here and there, but most everything was in the box. She was spayed a few weeks after she came home with us, but by then her litter habits had already started to degenerate. I put more effort into training her - building a pen so that she didn't have access to the whole house, putting out multiple boxes, etc. She does not seem to like being separated from Wesley, however, and her habits have continued to get worse.
Wesley is still a total pro with using the box. Bluebell is a disaster. Do I have them both stay in the pen for a while? Or just keep her in? They both love being able to run around. I am just not sure if it is appropriate to physically separate a bonded pair for an extended amount of time.
Thanks very much,
Lindsay, Wesley & Bluebell
