    Can you be a bit more specific? How many cats do you have? How old are they? How long have you had them? Are they indoors, or outdoors cats?

    Generally, if a bit of behaviour like weeing/pooing outside the litter tray begins, you first need to rule out a physical cause by taking the cat to the vet. Once a physical problem is ruled out, the behaviour is usually caused by stress of some sort - something that's changed in the cat's environment, which is making the cat unhappy.

    Excessive meowing - how much is excessive? Depends on the cat!
    Destructive scratching? Have you got a good, solid scratching post?

    Without more info from you, we can't help, but if you search this forum, there's loads of good info on it.
