I took all three to the vet last week to rule out UTI, and all litter boxes are clean.
One cat is peeing on anything that is laying around - clothes, towels, rugs or just the floor on cords. Today I come to find that my purse was peed on last night and I left it laying on the counter.
How to you curb this behavior?
Also need some help narrowing it down who it might be.
I have three cats, all male, all fixed and all around the same age 4-5 years old. Have had Avery and Cooper together since kittenish age and got Bailey this summer.
Avery - He didn't take to Bailey and keeps Bailey cooped up on the 3rd floor. Anytime Bailey starts to come down the stairs Avery will chase him back up. I'm thinking Avery might be doing the peeing as a territorial claiming thing?
Bailey - I doubt it's him because he never is allowed to come down from the 3rd floor.
Cooper - He is a handful, if he doesn't get what he wants then he gets destructive. I could see him starting to pee to further his destructive patterns. For example, if he wants more food (he is the largest cat of the 3, while not obese he could stand to lose some weight) he will come to where I am, look up at me and start scratching the furniture up. He does the same when he wants to go outside - he was adopted from a young age but I"m thinking that the previous owner had him outside because he wants to go outside all the time. During the summer I'll allow him out on the patio because it's inclosed and there's nowhere for him to wander off too. But now it's cold and snow/ice out and I don't want him outside....in which he is being a destructive butthead.
Also I should mention that Avery/Cooper get along, Cooper/Bailey get along it's just the Avery/Bailey combo that doesn't. My house is starting to smell of cat pee, last night I couldn't even eat in my dinning room the smell was so strong. Speaking of, what's a good cleaner to use on hardwood floors to get the smell out?
