What the heck

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
DH had a friend over and his younger brother. Popsie is used to DH's friend but really doesn't know DH's brother that well. His friend pulled out my acoustic gutair to play it and when he left didn't put it away. So I just got home from my Moms and noticed the gutair case was wet. I sniffed it and it smells like cat pee. Why would he pee on it? The only think I can think is that there was someone in the house that he doesn't know.

Maybe he was trying to tell you that he doesn't like that particular type of music

My two male cats in the past would pee on things when they got upset, but I noticed they picked things that would have a strong smell -- laundry, undies, an old packpack. Maybe this guitar case had a smell that challenged or offended the cat and so they took their revenge by marking their territory.

I don't think the cat would associate the case with the owner, even if the owner had done something mean to the cat, which obviously there's no reason to think happened.

That is very suspect.........I would be confused as well! My first concern would be a health issue if this is completely unexpected behavior. You are sure it is "Popsie urine"? If Maia urinated somewhere other then her litter, which I clean regularly, I would be extremely concerned. I have had kitties in the past who have shown their disapproval of a situation by urinating/defecating somewhere out of norm was few and far between as well as extreme stressful surroundings or a health issue.

Yeah, I'm sure it was his pee. It smelled like cat pee. I doubt it's a health issue because he hasn't gone outside the litter box other than that incident. I just think he was upset that their was someone in the house he doesn't know.

Was it a leather case? My cats go bonkers over some leather things - I guess they are strongly attracted to the smell. If it's leather, I could see an excitable cat marking it.

No it's like a nylon material.

Maybe another cat peed in it a long time ago, and those kittie noses smell everything.

It must be something about the smell.
