Angry Pee Pants!

Hey everyone!

Our male cats is peeing all over the house! And my parents are by far through tolerating this. He is about 10 years old, and is a huge lap cat. He is patheticly sweet, and we have had him since I was five. He was a dumpster kitty until the shelter rescued him, and then we gave him a home.

We have tried everything, even giving him to my sister to try him at her house, but he was way too stressed to keep him there. He also wakes my parents up in the middle of the night, and where I don't want to give him away, I have to admit this is ridiculous. The problem is, there is no one to take him in, nor is he cut out to go to another home. Because we are out of options, I have resulted to the horseforum ( haha "horse" forum ) in hope that maybe you guys have any tips for a cat that sprays constantly.

Is there a way to prevent or at least cut down on a cat spraying/marking his territory around the house?

I love this cat and would really like to come up with a plan, so thanks in advance for any feedback!

I've never found a way to stop it. Is he fixed? If he's not it would still probably already be to late to nueter him to fix it. I wihs you best of luck with him. I have seen that spraying can be caused by stress, other male cats nearby, or someone new in the household that he's not fond of.

Has he been neutered? It sounds like hes spraying. If he is neutered, was he neutered late in life?
As far as I know, there really isn't much you can do about it. Once they start, they tend to want to keep their territory marked.

Sorry I forgot to say that he is neutered and was neutered as soon as we got him! We have quite a few other cats in the neighborhood, a couple we especially have trouble with that come as far as in our garage eating our cat's food and sraying everywhere! UGH! Dumb cats...

The other cats are probably his issue. :( I'm sorry to say that its not likely to stop unless the other cats stay away.

Not sure how to help,sorry.We have quite a few cats that come in and out of the house.Once one starts spraying they all start marking...The main sprayers are not allowed in the house anymore.

My mom's friend couldn't stop her cat from spraying or get him to use the litter box.The previous owners declawed him and the lady that rescued him refused to put him outside and he was put to sleep.Im sure its going to be really hard to break a cat thats been doing it for awhile.

I'm hoping someone knows a way to help with this problem because I would like some help also.

Yeah it's pretty irritating. But he hasn't done this forever, so it seems likely the other cats are the problem. We have even chatted with the owners of these cats, and they claim that it isn't their cat, they do not believe us, we're ridiculous, etc.

Does your cat go outside or is he strictly indoors? I agree that the problem is most likely from the neighborhood cats. Spraying is territorial and stress related and your cat feels threatened. Using an odor neutralizing cleaner on all of areas he has sprayed may help because he's going to continue to spray where he has left his scent. There are also pheromone products that you can spray on the areas he's sprayed that are supposed to discourage spraying. You would also have to take the same steps to discourage the other cats from spraying. I would bet if they stopped, he'd stop. Try a google search for more information and good luck!

Has he been vet checked? He might have a UTI.

Our 14 year old female poos AND pees everywhere, plis howls bloody murder at the worst hours. For the peeing, try to have several litter boxes, at LEAST one in every floor of the house, and preferably in his favorite room/rooms. Clean them at least once a day. If you have changed litter, change it back. Also, clean anything he pees on either in the washer or with a pet odor remover. If he pees in one specific room or area, block it off.

Other than that, please don't give him up. If you (his family) doesn't want him, who would want a 10 year old cat that pees everywhere when there are SO many cats out there. It is very likely a death sentence.

He is both indoor and outdoor, he has been vet checked, and the only problem with the advice you gave is that he refuses to use a litter box, he pees EVERYWHERE so we can't block any rooms off, and the spray would be all over lol! Oh, and 1d3c17r, you can rest assured I will NEVER let my parents put him down or do something that will lead to him being put down...I love him too much!

*While I'm typing this his arm is wrapped around mine an he is snoring lol!
