Cat peeing because I am pregnanct

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
My 3 year old cat Polly (a female) has started peeing on a lot of my things a few weeks before I found out I was pregnant. I cannot figure out why she is doing this or how to make her stop. We moved into a new apartment 4 weeks before the big news came and since then she has peed on my chair cushion, my clothes, my bath towels, etc. She does not pee on anything of my husband's, only my stuff. She is not fixed yet, but we plan to fix her before the baby comes. She also seems to be really protective of my growing belly so I am not sure this is a jealosy thing. HELP!!

It could be a number of things, someone should be here shortly to answer your question, but you did mention you are in a new apartment? How soon after you moved in did she start to pee? It may be the stress of a new place.

She started peeing on everything about 2 and 1/2 to 3 weeks after we moved in.

She may be ill. Inappropriate peeing is often a sign of a urinary tract infection. If that is the case, it should stop when she is treated.
Congratulations on your pregnancy. My daughter's cat rubbed her belly throughout her pregnancy, and is now the self-appointed guardian of my precious granddaughter. It is so cute to see them together. He is a huge white cat, and he sleeps at her feet. She is just now, at 6 months old, getting close to his size. Sometimes she will fall asleep grasping his tail, and he will sit patiently until she lets it go. He loves her so much.

Please take your cat to the vet to be tested for a urinary tract infection. Inappropriate urination is the number one symptom of a UTI.

Congratulations by the way!

When I was nurseing my son, I had a cat who would pee on my breast pads if he found them in the laundry pile. I guess they smelled really "natural" to him, and he was just marking them as his. He was neutered.

Your cat does need to be checked out quickly by a vet, to see if she has a urinary illness. Then get her spayed, this will probably correct the problem!

P.S. Congrats on the new kitten, I mean baby!
