why does my cat pee on everything
Be sure to thoroughly clean all areas where your cat has peed outside the box. You want to be sure you ve eliminated the odor, not just for your own sake, but also so the smell doesn t draw your cat back to that same spot. Use a black light and your nose to identify all the problem areas. If you are dealing with fresh urine, first blot up as much as possible with paper or cloth towels. Next (and for older spots), pick the best cleaning method based on what has been soiled. Hard surfaces can be thoroughly cleaned with your favorite household cleaning solution. Use your washing machine for bedding, towels, etc. Rugs and upholstery are best cleaned with an enzymatic or bacterial cleaner, but make sure to follow the manufacturer s instructions to maximize their effectiveness.
My male cat Dean has been neutered and for the last couple of months, since the start of spring, he keeps spraying at the front door on the inside of the house.
My husband has noticed another male cat that likes to sit on the other side of our front door and also spray. We have a neighbor a few houses down that keeps allowing their female to have multiple litters of kittens thus attracting all of these tomcats and forcing Dean to stake his claim inside the house.
When we would leave the windows open, before the start of summer to take advantage of energy savings, he was spraying MY side of the bed. We thought it was the fact that our dog was getting into the cat food, which was in our bedroom, so we moved the food to another room. Our female cat, Sam, also began actually urinating in front of the bed as well. The litter box is in the basement (we have a ranch style home). They have complete access, it is cleaned every week, both boxes. I even got one of those waterfall water dishes and still Dean sprays and now they are both starting to poo inside the house. And it has occurred right after I put fresh litter in it.
Sam isn't even covering her poo in the box. And it is not pleasant at all. It has a very pungent metallic smell to it. Bad smells don't usually bother me like that, but this is GOD AWFUL CRAP! Makes me gag. I can't handle it and I clean the cat pans. I've also noticed the spraying is following the coffee table from one end of the living too to the other, which is wooden. Should I pitch it or just cover it with a stain and some varnish? We can't afford new furniture at this point. I have changed their litter back to what we were using before. I have changed their food to the more expensive, grain free, organic, blah blah blah.
Using any kind of regular Cat Chow from Purina turns poor Sammy into the good year blimp! Needless to say, I am at my wits end. I love my furbabies but this is just exhausting. I've nearly gone through 3 bottles of concentrated carpet cleaner from hoover. I'm going to give these methods you mentioned a try and hopefully, in a month or two come back with a much better result. I hate having anybody come into my house and the first thing they smell is cat urine. Makes me feel like I have a disgusting house, like I don't take care of my home at all. Extroidinairly fruatrating.
