Weeing all over the flat

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi all

Its been a while since I was last on but I need some from you all.

Simba has been weeing in different places around the flat.

It first started with the bathroom mats then recently he has been weeing under my sons bed

Im really worried about him as he's never done this before.

Have you taken him to the vet to be checked for a UTI?

Often going outside the box means they have an infection. It can be behavioural but you should rule out the medical first.

Thanks folks

I have him booked in tomorrow with the vet

He has been doing this since Heidi left he used to poo in his box and pee in hers when she left he started peeing on the bathroom mats in both bathrooms.

Now it seems that he has decided that under my sons bed is the best place to pee and it is really stinking the place out.

I had to throw out my sons comfy pillow he kept under his bed when he was playing with his toys and also Simbas bed pillow too.

Today I had to throw out my sons car mat because it stinks too

We have also noticed that Simba needs to lay down on something i.e a cushion or strangly he had a notebook under him the other day

I hope it is just an infection that can be sorted out as DH wants to get rid of him due to health for the kids


Things are just going from bad to worse right now why can't i have something nice happen for a change

If he's a male and has never done this before, get him to the vet immediately. If he has a UTI and gets blocked you will lose him within a short time!

If he's not neutered, get him done immediately to stop the spraying. I suspect its UTI if its all of a sudden.

He has been neutered

Im really worried now tomorrow cant come quick enough

I went into my sons room today to do a clean up and had to throw away most of the toys that were on the floor because they either smelled of pee or were wet with pee

I will let you all know how he gets on tomorrow

Thanks again for the advice

Is there no way the vet would see you this afternoon if you tell them how concerned you are?.

It does sound like a medical issue to me too. If you can't get him in until tomorrow, just keep a very close eye on him to make sure he is able to urinate. The major trouble is when they can't pee...although you never want to get to that point.

I don't want to offend you or imply anything...just want to help ...sometimes when cats pee inappropriately and get caught and yelled at or scared somehow, they will seek out hidden "safer" places to pee...like under beds or behind things.

I might try to put him somewhere that will make the messes easier to clean and control for now. The only problem is that stress can play a huge role in bladder issues so if he's stressed by being confined it's not such a good idea after all. I hope that makes sense.

Let us know how it goes.

Thanks for all the replys

We bought him another litter tray today just to see if it would make any difference and i just caught him peeing in it i was so happy

We dont shout at him or give him into trouble sometimes i think it dont make a difference because they dont know why we are angry with them and if it is medical then it isnt his fault

Thanks so much all who replied i will let you all know how he gets on tomorrow

Glad things are ok and nothing was majorily wrong. Its scary when males get blocked - they can die within a day or two if they can't go.

Sometimes they can be brats
