We have 2 female spayed tabbys 10 and 6yrs old. The six year old has kidney disease. We give her fluid theropy at home 3 times per week. She was checked by our Vet and everything else is normal, no infectons. We have 2 liter boxes set out for them and they have been sharing for 6 yrs. About 1 month ago the 6 yr old started to urinate outside the liter box on a vinyl mat which the box sits on. She also urinates in the box. It only happens in the morning and not daily, sometimes 2- 3 days apart.THe rest of the day she uses the box. We put her and her box in the garage for a few hours, with food and water of course. She used the box fine. We brought her back in and the next morning or day later she does it again. We dont leave her in too long 4-5 hours at most because we feel bad, like we are kicking her out, I dont know if longer intervals will help. The cats have not been on the best of terms lately. the older cat has been hissing at the younger one, maybe because of the attention the younger one is getting because of the fluid theropy, I dont know. I hope there is some one who can help us we're running out of clues.
