I have had kitties all my life and he is the only one that has done this.

The situation is complex and for the most part I am able to handle his personality. He has a fight response and will even confront me when he is feeling out of control. He seems territorial as well. He is 8 years old, diagnosed with hyperthyroid at 6 years old and around the time of the diagnosis he started attacking me when I cleaned his litterbox. There is a Feliway diffuser plugged in the room. He is still extremely territorial over the room with all litter boxes.

I have been locking him up to clean the box, but it’s so frustrating. Especially since he was fine with me cleaning it for 6 years. Wonder if there is a way to counter condition this behaviour. She is 8 years old and has never done this before. But it is becoming a regular habit. There are two other cats in the home and they are behaving normally. Our kitten Beckham, aged 3 months, has been peeing and pooping on a bed. I cannot separate him from this room right now and I am frustrated. He does it right in front of us, loud and proud! He has no mental issues or stresses I am aware of.
