  • Who knows Cat Behavior?

    One of my three darling kitties has now been dubbed "The Madd Pisser". Try as we might, cannot get to stop peeing in one area of the carpet. She's done this before on a tile floor next to the cat box, but know the carpet. Fresh cat box daily, lots of love to ALL the kids, but am at wits end. This is starting to affect my marriage. Any one got suggestions? Last thing I want to do is find Pearly another home. TIA, Laura

    How many litter boxes? 3 cats in one box is probably too many. I would put 2 more boxes around the house and see if this helps.

      I have two cats and at one time had one litter box. The bigger cat started peeing all over the livingroom. I got a second box and put it on the other side of the house from the first box. I clean both boxes morning and night. End of peeing problem. If you haven't tried it, it's really worth the investment and extra work.

        I had one that also did this behavior in her senior years. First, check with your vet that there is no kidney or bladder problem. Is this the only female? Sometimes females won't go in a box where a male has 'marked his territory' so to speak. (peeing is another way of marking along with spraying). A fresh litter box put over the spot where the cat wants to pee may help. You can get enzyme cleaners at a pet store. They are supposed to remove the smell (never knew if the the animal couldn't smell the spot anymore or if the cleaner just made the spot smell bad to her). You can try making that spot inaccessible to her. Hope this all helps.
        Communicate. It can't make things any worse!

              I just want to say that everyone had good ideas on this post. Cats are very clean animals, so it's very important to keep their litterbox areas clean...and food away from their boxes too. They don't like to eat near where they use the bathroom. I would also add that spaying/neutering your pets helps these problems too. Definitely, could be a URI. I had a cat that had one and she had this problem. Once I took her to the vet and got her better, she no longer had the probelm with the litterbox until she got diabetes. Then I was cleaning the litterbox practically every time I'd walk by it! Gotta love those cats!!!
