Cat is jealous and doesn’t feel wanted anymore

My friend whose husband had a cat before they got married is having a problem now because they just had a baby. For some reason the cat is going to the bathroom everywhere and not using the litter box. She has let the cat out and only lets it in the garage. The cat has been declawed and I told her that it is not safe for the cat to be outside. Is there anything she could do to solve this problem with the cat and baby. I feel the cat is probably jealous and doesn’t feel wanted anymore. Thank you.

The cat is probably suffering from an emotional problem. Taking some time and trying to shower the cat with affection may be helpful. Also short term anti anxiety medications such as valium and amitriptylline might show some benefit.

We agree that outdoors is no where for a declawed cat to be! Incidentally, we do not agree with the practice of declawing cats!
