You said that you have had him for only 6 months...how old is your kitty? Please...if you cannot live with Scaredy & your vet has not said that he is suffering from a terminal illness ...find & call a Persian rescue group or any rescue group in your area that will place Scaredy in a loving home where he can be helped.
I think poor Scaredy got crazy from all the medications he had been given. He has IBD and FIC. He pees out of the litterbox not because of the behavioral problems, but because he has FIC, which is the same as cistitis in humans.
He is only a year old. I don't think he is in horrible pain, but his FIC isn't getting any better and vet says they can not do anything for him. It's extremely annoying to have cat peeing everywhere. I can handle a lot of things but not that for a long time. And of course with carpets the whole apartment is going to smell like cat pee.
He already is in a loving home (mine) but I have no idea how else he can be helped. He is a very sickly animal and has been ever since I got him.
If his FIC doesn't get better, I have no idea what else to do. SHould I crate him? I don't think he will be happy in a crate, though. He would sit on my bed, look at me, and pee right on it.
I know it's not his fault but there seems to be no cure for his FIC. I really want to help him but don't know what else I can do.
