It is useful that you noted she only avoids the litter box for urination, as that rules out a litter box issue. Originally Posted by Garden of Eden Vicki, good for you! If yours has been "inappropriately urinating" as it's formally called , then it's trying to tell you that something is wrong. I don't know why, it has been happening for nearly a month now, and when he does pee he goes on anything he can find that's soft, usually curtains or rolls of fabric. That is because a UTI makes urination painful, and when first experienced in the litter box, there then becomes avoidance, trying to avoid the pain.
What Can You Put on the Floors to Keep a Cat From Urinating on It?
Of course a preference for more than one location or more than one surface may also arise, and they are not mutually exclusive. We have a 10 year old female cat that likes to pee on shoes, beds and chairs. Vetstreet does not provide medical advice, diagnosis, or treatment. She may feel like she needs extra attention or she may be stressed from something in her environment. I've tried being extra nice to her I am very affectionate to her regardless

Making a good choice may require a little imagination and should be based on the type of surfaces in the home on which the cat is eliminating. She is active and looks normal. So wondering what I can do to stop this behavior? This is obviously much easier to accomplish if the problem is a neighbor cat and not another feline in your household. They can cause them to pee inappropriately.
He poos in the litter box, of which we keep clean, changing every day or so. Designate a safe place for each cat like a bedroom or closet that the other cat is not allowed. Don't know what I have done to this cat for her to be like this with me!!! Then feed the cats there a few times. Give her extra attention and love. We cleaned and cleaned the carpet.
