Cat Peeing on Bath Mat (Advice?)
My 3 year old cat has started peeing on our bath mat. His litter box is literally about 1.5 feet away because we keep it in the bathroom. I don't understand why in the last month or so the cat has decided to pee on the bath mat. I've washed it in the washing machine and washed the floor and he's still doing it. My husband and I thought maybe he felt his litter box wasn't being cleaned enough so we started scooping and cleaning it daily and he still peed on the mat last night. Is the washing machine enough to get the smell out of the mat or should I buy a new mat and get an enzyme cleaner for the floor? I don't understand why he would suddenly do this since nothing has changed. Same litter box, same litter, he doesn't appear sick or stressed, our schedules are the same. Any advice? If he had an infection or crystals, wouldn't he pee everywhere, not just the bath mat?
