My stray cat, Fluffy, who I've had 1 1/2 years has recently been peeing on the carpet. Maybe she's been doing this all along as I saw small spots on the steps. I also have two other cats and never had a problem. Fluffy & resident cat #1 have never gotten along, but #2 cat & she do. I have two litter boxes one on each floor, only have 4 rooms. Cat #1 has been sleeping on top of one of the boxes so I put something on top so she could not get comfy I figured that Fluffy didn't want to use that box for fear of fights. This AM fluffy peed right outside this box on a small rug, then not too long after I heard her scratching in the box. She always poops in a box. I clean them every day. Its hard for me to clean up after her as I have a back problem. So my question is How does the vet check for a UTI? I'm calling as soon as the office opens. I hope its not a complicated process since I can't chase her around the house. I don't want to get rid of her since thats not what I rescued her for. Advice please.
