Hi! Youre kitty looks so much like my Rascal, but my Rascal is a wee bit heavier and more gold in color.
Have you tried "Cat Attract"? That could help.
Have you tried Nature's Miracle? I can't live without this stuff, it's amazing! Whatever product you are using to remove pee odors or poop stains, you need to really let the product soak through all the way to the bottom of the carpet and padding so that it can efficiently remove all odors and stains.
Also it might be smart to have a vet check him out to eliminate any potential health problems
I dont' think it's habit related, but odor related. Cats will go where they can smell it, that's why you need a good product like Nature's Miracle, to get rid of the odor. I know I have mentioned Nature's Miracle in many of my posts, but I can't help it. I am a huge fan and with good reason. Used appropriately, it works!
Also how many litter boxes do you have? YOu may need to have more than one,. I.E. One where he can pee and one where he can poop. Some kitties are just finicky that way. Cats are extremely clean animals.
Also what kind of litter are you using? Cats can be pretty picky. He might be ok to pee on it, but might not like it if he has to dig to cover it. Cat litter can make all the difference.
I am currently using Nature's Miracle Cat Litter and Swheat Scoop mixed together. What a marriage!
Please let us know how things turn out.
