Marking his territory. . . IN MY TERRITORY!!!!!

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Okay, I have a new problem on my hands, with the newcomer. Bart has decided that he'd like to use my bed for his litter box. He did it once, and then I immediately went to the pet store and bought Nature's Miracle pet stain and odor remover before it dried. It KINDA worked, but not very well. It still smells. Today, I came home only to find ANOTHER huge urine stain on my {{{very expensive that I just finished paying off}}} bed! GRRRR. . . . . I'm about to throw this cat back on the streets!!!! No, I wouldn't do that. I still love him . . . but what do I do!!?? I tried boiling hot water and pouring it on the pee stains. I'm going to buy another pet stain and odor remover. Does anyone know of anything that actually WORKS?!

Might I suggest that while you try to get that all cleaned up, that you ban him from the bedroom? I have a multi-cat household and the newcomer, Pete decided that SOMETHING in that house was going to be HIS. He decided it was going to be my bed. The first time he was out of the bedroom for a week, the second time it was a month and the third time......well it's been over a year and he is still out.

You have to make an impression that this is YOURS....not HIS.

Have you also had him vet-checked to be sure he doesn't have a UTI?

most importantly is he neutered? that is usually the first step in solving pee problems. if not then you have a simple, obvious solution there. That is just something that unneutered males do, can't really prevent it.

If he is then I would wonder if he might have a UTI. You would need a vet to determine this and no sense in waiting.

Put him in the bathroom(or any other small quiet room) till you get this solved. Wash all your linen and i usually use vinegar for the matras, mixed with water. To be safe, buy a plastic sheet, it ll save you a lot of grief, to put over your bed. And introduce him to every room one at a time, and especially if there are other animals in the house.

Put his kittylitter as far as possible away from the food and water. Also watch him as he goes potty. Is it possible he doesnt like the litter? Is he scratching the sides and trying to avoid standing in the litter?
Once you do allow him in your bedroom, spray feliway spray on the bed. this will keep him from marking it as his own, because in his eyes, it is already marked as his( it simulates facial glands-marking), and it has a smell (basically non existant after letting it disperse)that does not bother the actual owner
