I have had Dusty since my friend gave her to me because her first family was abusing her. She is the best cat usually, she has her moments just like any other. But she is almost 4 this year and all of a sudden she has started peeing all over my things. I washed my comforter twice in one day along with my sheets my body pillows. the babies blankets. I have no clue what has goptten into her, and before u ask yes she has a clean litter box, my cats have to stay in my room and I have a very sensitive nose. SO I am always cleaning and vaccuming and doign everything possible to keep my room from smelling like I have cats. So any ideas on why all of a sudden she is acting so wierd, because I love her but I cant handle her peeing on everything. LOL I have enough laundry with 8 kids in the house.
Hi Starlight and everyone. I am a new member and live in England. I had the same problem with my cat Smokey. He sprayed in about five different places in each room. I put cloths in these places and washed them regularly. The smell was appalling. After about four years of this I got breast cancer and simply could not cope any longer so with the greatest distress put poor Smokey to sleep. I had a second cat but when I tried to into introduce another into the house he started spraying too so the second one had to go. Is it possible that if you have other cats your cat feels threatened and insecure? I have no idea what to suggest except that its definately a symptom of insecurity. I read all your messages with great interest but am horrified at your problems. Bob cats in the yard, coyotes eating your cats, hawks waiting to pounce on any small animal,skunks - we dont have anything like that here, I would'nt have a moments peace.By the way clear of breast cancer for two years now, of course I bitterly regret putting poor Smokey down but all became too much for me at the time. Cheerio for now Aileen
Yes, that is real intelligent. Put a cat "down" simply because he hasn't properly been trained to the litter box.. which is partly your fault. Perhaps you should be euthanized. Ugh, i'm sorry if I seem a bit rude.. but, that fills me with such anger.
no way would i put up with a cat pissing all over my house. cat urine is the reekingest, nastiest smelling thing in the world. its very hard to get the smell out too. i would take the cat for a vet exam and rule out any medical reasons. i went through this a few years back with one of my cats. medical issues were ruled out at his vet visit. he got on my bed one night and peed on my legs through the blanket. i got up and put him out the back door. he became an outdoor cat. it took months to get the smell completely out of my house. it would hit me when i came in from being outside for any length of time and i couldnt deal with it. i gradually started allowing him inside and increased his time indoors. he quit doing it alltogether. if he had started up again he would have become a permanant outdoor cat.
Thanks everyone for the help. I think I'll just take her to the vet because she's usually a very good cat and I have had her for almost 4 yrs now. It would have to be something very bad for me to put her down, however, I love my cats to much for that. And unfortunately I cant put her outside she isn't fixed yet, and besides way to many cats get hit by cars around here. The closest she will get to beng outside is the outside enclosure I'm going to build for them. http://www.catster.com/pet_page.php?i=128307&j=t&PHPSESSID=84ea836f68fb3d230cc62b44a9ca1fe2
