Fur-Children Parenting

I think Norm and I might be failing at fur-children parenting. Pellet and Cali have been out of control in the last few weeks - what has happened?? Are we slacking? Apparently...

They have been doing things like:
- getting on the bed at 5am for no reason at all
- jumping on the window screens
- getting on the couch and knocking over the pillows
- jumping up on people constantly
- getting on the bed on the guest room the minute I open the door
and worst of all: POOPING BY THE FRONT DOOR!!

We are certain Cali is the one pooping by the front door - in the middle of the night. So we started logging the time we fed her (maybe we were feeding her too late?) and the last time she went out and whether or not she had an accident the following morning. Here is the chart:

As you can tell, she finally stopped having accidents - so we stopped logging. We decided that she had to eat in the 6 o'clock hour (although if you really pay attention to the log, there is absolutely no rhyme or reason to why she was pooping - notice 10/22 and then notice 10/27...).

So what did Cali do last night and the night before? POOP BY THE FRONT DOOR. And what time was Cali fed last night and the night before? at approximately 6:00pm. And what time did Cali last go out last night and the night before? at approximately 11:00pm.

I don't get it. All insight and possible solutions are welcomed.
