Default Peeing inappropriately!


OK--twice in this past week, Chase had peed other than where he should. This
morning was the big lulu--he peed on me as I was sleeping.

I have no idea why. The litterbox is clean, he's eating and drinking well,
he's been playing well with Paintball, so I have no reason to believe he's
sick.

Arrrrrgh....any thoughts?

Any changes in Chase's routine? Sometimes stress (even if they aren't acting
stressed) can set them off. My cat peed all over when a painter was there.

Everyone seems to think this has to mean a urinary tract infection,
but the one and only time it
happened to me, the cat that jumped up on my husband's just-laundered
duvet cover and peed
on it while he was in bed was very, very upset with him.

I took her to the vet the next day and she got a clean bill of health.
She was 8 years old and had
NEVER done anything like this.

What was the problem?

1. Her box was not as clean as she liked.

2. Our new introduction, another girl cat, was pooping in her box,
unbeknownst to us.

3. While laundering his comforter cover, my husband left the down
comforter on the bed and the kitty kept trying to snuggle on it but he
didn't want her to as she is black and it is white, so he kept shooing
her off the bed.

Must have been the straw that broke the camel's back, as they say.
Because just as soon as he had the duvet cover back on and got into
bed,
she jumped up and peed all over it.

I think your cat is upset with you about something.

Did it occur to you to take him to a vet? He probably has a urinary
tract infection and innappropriate urination is often the only symptom.
You'd better get it checked out ASAP, because if you don't and he does
have a medical problem, he could block and die.
You've read this newsgroup for quite some time and I am shocked that you
don't know this.

If he peed on you, more than likely, he's mad at you about something.
UTI notwithstanding, this sounds like he wants your attention. Have you
been playing with him as much, if not more, than Paintball?
Does Paintball share his box? Maybe he doesn't like that.
Just because they play together doesn't mean they like sharing the box.
Rowan still gets miffed when Jeffrey uses "her" box (I have two boxes)
for defecation. She will hold it until I clean it. Since I clean them
twice a day and Jeffrey rarely uses her box, this isn't a major issue,
but if he went in it daily, I would probably need a third box.

There haven't been any changes lately, and I can't think of anything he'd be
upset about...I'm really at a loss here for why he did this.

I would've expected him to do this when Paintball first came to live with us,
and then insisted on sharing his food bowl/water bowl/litterbox, but that was a
year ago, and he let her. (Meaning he didn't hiss at her or anything to let her
know it was his stuff.) With two cats sharing the same litterbox, you can bet
I clean that out regularly.

Their sleeping habits have changed a bit--ever since she came to live with us,
Paintball's wanted nothing more than to cuddle up to him at night, and I've
woken up lately to see them curled up together, but I figure if he didn't want
that, he would stalked away from her (which is what he did in the past when he
wasn't big on sharing his personal space with her).

And he's seemed friendlier--before, if I had people over, he'd hide, nowadays,
he comes downstairs and even demands to be petted. So any changes I saw seemed
to be positive ones. I'm honestly stumped as to what he could be upset about.

How old is he?
Is it possible he is losing control of his bladder? Our old Tom (RIP)
began losing control as he got older (12) and his kidneys didn't do so
great...

I can't think of anything else besides that and the customary UTI
explanation...

Peeing is never inappropriate, it is the spots that are inappropriate. ;-)

First rule out any medical issue by getting him to a vet for a check, be
sure to mention this peeing outside the box to the vet.

He'll be 7 years old in March....


*sigh* I can't either. With having been laid off recently, I was hoping we'd
all three avoid having any health issues until I was re-employed again. I was
really hoping he was just pissed (pardon the pun) at me for something, but
nothing comes to mind.

Thanks,

Just kind of thinking out loud here...

Is it possible a stray has been roaming near your home?
Maybe even spraying in your yard or on your walls outside?

Have you started using any new detergents or cleaners or soaps?
Have you cleaned the box with a different detergent than usual? No
change in the brand of litter? No change in box location?

Any food changes at all?
Anything new in the home at all, including rugs, decorations, furniture,
etc...?

Maybe if we all brainstorm, we'll find something small and stupid.
