Have you tried anything like Feliway
or Rescue Remedy
This is great advice....also, some cats DO NOT like clutter or anything lying around and this may be the same with your cat. But everybody living in your house will have to make an effort in remembering to not leave anything lying around on the floor, beds, table, etc.
My sister had a cat that has sprayed for the last 5-6 years on and off (while living at our parents house). He was checked at the vet several times for UTI's, crystals, etc. and clear . We started to think it was territorial/behavioural....he lived with his brother but there were smells from other cats my parents had throughout the years. Also, there were many neighbourhood cats that would come to the patio door and walk through the yard constantly. Some cats are very territorial. What has worked for my sister is she switched him to an all wet diet, a week before she moved into her apartment she started applying Bach Pet Rescue Remedy (stress reducer), She started applying a "Spraying cat" flower essence formula from Anaflora on him. When she moved into the new one bedroom apartment on the 3rd floor (with a balcony) she immediately plugged in 2 feliway diffusers (stress reducer). She also did not bring anything that her cat sprayed on into the new apartment (ie: containers, bedding, bookshelfs, dressers, etc.)....and something is working because he has not sprayed once since moving into the apartment. He has become a much more mellow, less stressed, lovable cat. So, there may be some type of formula (flower essence ) that may help your cat. It's worth a try before you put him on any harsh type of medication.
Does your cat stand up when he is peeing or sits down? Because your cat may be spraying??? Just a thought....
What type of litter do you use? How many litterboxes do you have in the house? The rule of thumb is one litterbox for each cat plus 1 extra one. Where are the litterboxes located? Cats like to do their business in quiet/secluded areas. You must place them in quiet areas. You could also try placing puppy training pads or newspaper in one of the litterboxes as your cat may not like the feel of the litter when he pees and this is why he is finding much comfier spots to pee on?
I think the one thing to do is reduce his stress with the options above....
The previous poster gave you two excellent sites to check out. Here are a few sites that sells flower essences that I think would also be great for you to check out. Also, I don't know how cheap it would be for you to buy feliway diffusers where you live but my sister would buy them at the vets office (pretty expensive) but now she purchases them online or on ebay (wherever they are cheaper). I would also recommend that you buy more than one diffuser especially if you live in a bigger house (atleast 2-3) and place them in areas that he frequents very often...
You could also contact any one of these companies to see if they could recommend or put a formula best suited for your cat togehter.http://anaflora.com/essences/index.htmlhttp://www.spiritessence.com/http://www.abfeusa.com/index.html
(not sure where you live but this is for the US. I know there are many other sites for other countries including Canada - you just have to search the web)
