My kitty (Gizmo) has a bit of a small problem. For some reason instead of going to his litter box sometimes he decides to use the bathroom on the beds. I have tried to use the spray stuff that is supposed to keep cats away from certain places but it didn't work. Any advice?

Ok, I'm the farthest thing from an expert, but I do know from hanging around here and reading the boards, that the first question is,

has kitty been checked out by a vet? It could be an urinary track infection, and Gizmo is trying to tell you something is wrong.

If he is in perfect health, I'm at a loss, but luckily others here aren't!

If they have ruled out a urinary tract infection then the next guess would be that the litter box is not to Gizmo's liking, so you can try cleaning more often, gradually switch to a different litter or add another box. The other could be that the smell is still there. I would try an odor neutralizer such as Nok-out.(www.nok-out.com) and then put a plastic cover on the matress. Last is Gizmo could be upset about something. Had anything changed before the behavior started?

that if the box is covered, try uncovering it, and even though you only have one cat, try getting a second box and using it as well.
