My cat is pooping in the same spot but pees in the litterbox! Help!

Hello all,

My name is Angela and I have a 2 year old female siamese mix (Bailey) that has been litterbox trained. Recently, a couple of weeks ago, we came home to poop in the corner of the dining room floor. We also think my aunt may have stopped by with her new dog... a pomeranian that Bailey cannot stand. At first we thought the dog may have done it but our suspicions were incorrect because a couple of days ago, we noticed there was poop in the same spot. Coincidentally, this happened the same day that my aunt stopped by with the dog again. However the poop was there in the morning so we know Bailey did it. We cleaned the carpet with strong spot cleaner and she did it again this morning.

Could this be a territorial issue and she is acting out because of it?

Does anyone have any suggestions??

Could very well be a reaction to the stress of having an unwanted houseguest. When the dog comes over, is he on a leash or is he allowed to run around everywhere? Does he ever chase Bailey or bark at him?

The dog is free to roam the house when he comes but Bailey will run and hide behind the couch usually for the duration. The first time the dog was brought over, Bailey was cornered underneath a large chair and just growled the entire time. The dog seemed amused and would try to play but was discouraged by the growling.
