If left untreated, the urethra can block completely, which is fatal without medical intervention.

Often the first sign is a change in litterbox habits or going outside the box, because urination is painful for the cat.

We went on holiday last year and the room we rented had an open window.. When se came back from a walk there was pee onthe bed. I can only assume a local cat had decided to literally 'peess us off'!

Is there really some 'sense' in this explanation?
It could be a health problem, or it could be behavioural/territorial marking. Without knowing which cat was responsible, it's impossible to know.

My cat peed on my bed....

KC had surgery to widen his urethra 12 years ago due to blocked bladder issues. He unfortunately also has diabetes & skin allergies. So that is why I am leaning toward him more to have peed on my bed.

I have been watching him & he still hasn't gone peed in the litterbox yet. He is not crying in pain or acting differently. He is miserable from his skin allergies though because he has scratched his neck raw again & is bleeding.

I have a dog that surfs for treats as well so I have hooded litterboxes that I strategically place so the cats can get inside them but it is too difficult for my dog.
As far as natures miracle goes, they make a oxy one that has this wonderful citrus smell and comes in an orange bottle and I absolutely love it. When my baby was a kitten we had a few accidents. He had been going back to the same two spots in my dining room without me realizing it until I caught him one day. I used this oxy natures miracle and the room just smelled fresh and new. And every time I would walk past those two spots it would smell like a breath of fresh air for weeks after I treated the spot.
It's an oxy formula meant just for cats. I will never be without it.

As a side note: sounds like your baby is miserable and I hope he gets to feeling better. Ive heard it's not good especially for a male cat to be blocked for long periods of time so If it were me I would have him checked as soon as possible.
They make mattress covers that are suppose to be leak proof so I would check into that just for future peace of mind. Wishing you the best of luck.

Thanks everyone! KC finally peed in his box. I think that I will still take him to the vet. I am going to take him to the vet that I take my other pets too. They are alot closer to me than his current vet. Plus, I want to get a second opinion on his allergies and diabetes.
