I have read numerous articles and followed advice on curing one of my female cats from spraying my bed or the couch. Badone and greybaby live in my one bedroom apartment amicably most of the time, although greybaby has taken over as the dominant cat in the new apartment. When I go out of town Badone sprays my bed or the couch if I have shut the bedroom door. I bought urine-off, a blacklight for urine detection, and feliway spray. I've placed a food bowl on the bed and she sprayed near the bowl. NOTHING has stopped Badone from her bad behavior. She doesn't have a urine infection because she sprays sporadically, basically when she's angry with me for going out of town for more than two days at a time. She has been allowed outdoors as well as indoors and she and greybaby were spayed when they were kittens. I bought an expensive tempurpedic mattress cover and placed it on my bed. My back was turned for five minutes and she sprayed it so hard there was standing urine on the cover. I may have to throw out the mattress pad or take it to the dry cleaners. Badone can be so loving and affectionate, I would hate to give her up, but the spraying must stop! The last time I went out of town for a week she sprayed and soiled my bed (picture a cat box made out of a queen-sized bed), and she did it within a span of two days. When I lock her out of the bedroom she sprays the couch or blankets on the couch, but always the same spot. Again, I have doused my sheets, mattress, mattress pad, blankets, and couch cusions with urine-off and feliway spray, and she is not deterred. I am thinking of boarding her when I go out of town or making her an outdoor cat predominately. Please help me with suggestions! Thanks!
