Topic description really says it all.. It's only happend twice while I was in the bed but there have been times befor when she was younger that she would do it when I was away. I remember befor I got my bed I was sleeping on some blankets on the floor and she took a dump or two on those. I just wrote it off as she's just young but Since it's continueing I'm not sure what to do or think.
a little about me: I've been a Dog person all my life. This is my 1st cat I've ever had and other than the problem Im having above she is a great cat! I feed her dry food(kitten chow) regulary at least 4 times a day.. she even gets meat on special occassion. So pretty much this cat is not neglected, she gets plenty of attention and she loves interacting w/humans.
What I've been doing to try and stop it is pretty much Ill grab her by her scruff and rub her nose in then put her out. But I get the feeling it's not helping any...
I personally think it's her trying to punish me for not petting/ playing w/her when she want's..But Im not a cat whisperer so I really don't have a clue.
First of all, punishments that work with dogs are absolutely useless with cats. Dogs have a desire to please their people while cats expect their people to please them. Picking her up and putting her nose in it means nothing to her. The only effective punishment would be to deny her access to your bedroom. A squirt from a water bottle works to stop a behavior if you catch her doing it. But once she has already peed on your bed and you find it later, nothing you do will make her connect the punishment with the act. She is trying to get her point across. Sometimes it's something you did, or something that changed that they don't like. (Such as moving to a new home or getting another pet) Sometimes it can be a medical problem but yours sounds too random to be that. Make sure you keep her litterbox as clean as you possibly can. It might be that she wants it to be cleaner or she doesn't like the kind of litter you use or where you put the litterbox. It's really tough to tell with cats. But if she's only doing it on your bed, she is definitely trying to tell YOU something. Just think about what happened that was different on the days that she did it. Also, it sounds like she's still a kitten. Wear her out with some playtime before you go to bed. It helps them be ready to sleep when you are. I use a laser pointer toy and run them down so they are ready for bedtime too. And my advice is primarily for if you find pee on your bed. If she actually pees on you, clearly she is forcing you to pay attention to her NOW whether you want to or not. All you can do in that instance is throw her out of the room and shut the door.
