My cat must hate me....pee on my bed?

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
I was right there...right there...she walked in front of me...squatted and pissed on the bed my mattress sucks and she ruined my mattress cover. WHY GOD WHY?

Oh no!! Well, it has nothing to do with hate...perhaps a trip to the vet is in order because that isn't normal

Usually when they do it right in front of you there's a medical or other issue. My Elsa will do it when she thinks I'm not cleaning the litter boxes enough. ESPECIALLY when they look you right in the eye and do it - I would get her to the vet, she might have a bladder problem.

Yeah, that says to me: "Mom, I need to go to the vet," not: "Mom I hate you, see?"

yeh over the past few minutes it has become quite clear...she is now dripping in spots and keeps licking herself. I just figured cuz it was her of all of them it might be an I hate you, mom! She still has some issues with adjusting, she's been with us 4 months now. I guess time to call the vet and a cab..., they all seem to know when I am getting money coming in...like they know it ok for them to get sick then.

I had a female calico that I loved so dearly and she was a great cat! BUT... after a couple of years she suddenly started pooping and peeing on everything I own! If I left a shirt or coat anything of mine on the floor or couch she would crap on it! She peed on the floor in any corner and I changed the cat boxes and kept putting her in it but it still did not help. After months of her crapping on my couch and ruining alot of my clothes I had to find her another home. I could not take it anymore... I felt bad and cryed to let her go but I didnt know what else to do. :-(

Poor girl, it does sound as if she's having problems weeing, must be painfull poor lass! Good luck with the vet visit, hopefully a course of antibiotics and she'll be right as rain.

If this has been going on for months, you really need to get her to the vet ASAP. Cats can't tell us they're sick - they can only show us.

no no is hasn't been going on for months. this just started today, I already brought her to the vet. they gave me antibiotics and did some blood work, and some weird little black things I get to catch her pee in!!! I feel so bad for feeling mad at her at first till I realized she was dripping & kept licking herself. the vet did think if it wasn't that and didn't clear up it may be behavioral. Hopefully she will be just fine though.

Let us know what they find out. Good luck getting samples. Feel better soon little kitty!

I'm so sorry - I read your post wrong. You wrote minutes - I read it as months. I was feeling so sorry for your poor kitty!

You have to catch her pee? Good luck! I hope the antibiotics do the trick!

If she does continue to have a problem, PLEASE search this forum - and start with the thread at the top of the forum called Inappropriate Peeing Problems answered.

yes I understand why you would be feeling bad , defenitly not months....i'd be feeling pretty bad too for any kitty having a bladder prob for that long! As would my cat!
Yeh she is in hide out mode right now. On top of it last time she had been in her carrier she was being bounced around from home to home so she might have been worried about that too.
Also I am very happy to note...she lost 3 lbs since we got her. She was 17lbs and had been free fed before so now she just has 2 smallish meals. and is 14 lbs! Sorry I just want to share that!

Poor girl was trying to get your attention. I hope the meds work and she's feeling better soon. Don't you just wish they'd learn a less stinky form of communication?

post #16 of 28
I'm glad you got her to the vet. Hopefully, with a urine sample you can determine what type of problem she has & solve it!

her blood work came out normal. However this morning...she was peeing blood but the vet said she may have crystals so that would be y and if it goes on for more then a couple of days then x-rays & diet change comes into play. My poor Nuit girl, she's been though so much.

Actually the vet just called and will be going on the prescription diet sooner then later it looks like.
post #19 of 28
Well, you probably caught it in time. Just think how much better she'll feel!

I hope your kitty gets to feeling better she'll be ok! Give her kisses for all of us, she needs some extra TLC right now

I managed to get Nuit bloody urine into the vet today, and she has crystals. Now she has to go on another medication on top of it. there were other things too that are not coming to mind. Appears to me somewhat serious though but manageable. I'm really worried about her now

If I were you I would either search the board for "crystals" or post a question in the Health & Nutrition Forum about it. Lots of people are dealing with it and it always helps to get some support!

Is the medication she's on called Albeta?

That is a urine acidifier. There are two types of crystals: Struvite crystals and Calcium oxalate crystals. Struvite crystals can be dissolved with an acidifier, and calcium oxalate crystals cannot. Our kitties had to be cathertized and flushed - one of them twice, the other ended up having to have surgery to remove crystals that had become embedded in his bladder wall.

Both can be controlled by special diets. Talk over your options with the Vet. Vets often prescribe a Science Diet something - I don't remember, but I think it was C/D for the Struvite crysals. I know it's X/D for the calcium oxalate crystals. Doc said Science diet is combining the 2 now. But Royal Canine makes a high quality "urinary tract health" formula, and it (usually) can be safely used for kitties with Struvite crystals (not calcim oxalate though).

Don't forget - where she peed on your bed you MUST use an enzyme cleaner to treat it. Put enzyme cleaner in the wash where you would add fabric softener and bleach. And TOTALLY soak the mattress - and I mean SOAK IT. It's got to get everywhere the pee was and DOWN into it. It will take days to dry - but just lay towels over the wet spot and swap them out every morning when you get out of bed. It is the only way to totally remove the smells, even for kitty's nose. It will help discourage her from using the same place as a bathroom again. And until the crystals are under control, she may still have accidents outside the box (cats sometimes come to associate the box with the pain, and then stop using the box). So make sure you have enzyme cleaner handy if this happens. And if it does, get new boxes, different litter, and put them in different - but convenient - locations. And any time you see her using a litter box, praiser her to high heaven. Cats respond really well to positive reinforcement.

P.S. Congrats on getting her to lose weight!

the closest i can find to a name on the bottle looks like metacam susp. but that could just be related to the dose. she's on antibiotics as well and I did do a diet change all ready the Hill's SD one. She doesn't seem to peeing any blood today (maybe a tiny in the morning). Trying to do the best I can for the girl.
dang bladder infection!

Sorry to hijack the thread a little...but I have a question for Laurie. Do you have any links to any info about "Albeta"? I think one of your old posts came up when I was researching acidifiers awhile back...and so I googled and googled Albeta and couldn't find anything Does it have an alternate name, maybe?

I'm curious about the ingredients/composition, dosage amt/frequency, etc. It didn't ring a bell w/my vet...so I thought maybe I had the name wrong.

Ladycat, I've been there and I know it's frustrating for you and your kitty. Hopefully the meds and food will do the trick.

Also I had tried the royal canin urinary one but she really didn't like it..she just wouldn't eat it. thankfully the vet said I can bring that other bag back even though it was open which I thought was really nice. After all we did just spend $400 on her! Not that I won't spend more if I've got it!
