My cat hasn’t used a litter since she was a kitten. She normally roams around outside on our property during the day, in at night. However, she was attacked by a cat while eating her dinner on our front porch twice in the last three weeks. She ended up with a abscess from one of the bites that was well concealed. She now needs to stay inside while we build her a cat run outside.
Big problem though, we have a litter for her but she refuses to use it. Actually growled at it when we showed it to her before. She isn’t normally aggressive if not triggers or frightened by she is quite stressed at the moment and we trying to not push her buttons.
Any tips please?

Leave her in a quiet, private space (like a closed laundry) and let her do her business. She will do it, she doesn't want an audience.
You could try putting a tiny amount of soil from her usual toileting area on top so that it smells like a place to go to the toilet...

Have you tried demonstrating what you want by scratching the litter with your front paws? You Don’t have to wee - the scratching seems to show them.

It may also be the actual litter you are using. My boy only likes the clay litter. He will refuse the others.
