Cats urinating everywhere Please Help
We have a major problem with our three cats urinating in the house everywhere. It started with our oldest cat, Misty who is 8 years old that we found as a kitten in a drainage pipe. She used the litterbox fine for the first about 3 years we had her. She then started peeing on just my stuff. Anything I left laying around she would pee on, clothes, bookbags, papers.. etc. So I just had to learn to make sure I never left anything laying around. We had her checked for a UTI but that wasn't the problem. Then goind on 4 years ago we had 3 kittens show up at our house, 2 males and one female. The neighbors took one of the males but could never get him to stay home because he liked to be with his siblings. Our two were spayed/neutered. These three stayed outiside at the time because of Misty. Our little male, Tang, would accually run into the house just to use the litterbox so he eventually became a house cat as well. Thats when Misty began peeing everywhere. We added another litterbox to the house but she refused to use it. Then a year and half ago we had another kitten added to the family, Sophie. Sophie was meant to be an indoor cat so I could take her with me to college when I get an apartment but she didn't agree with the arrangement and constantly runs outside. She will not use a litter box either at all. NOw Tang has passed away, the only cat that would use a litter box and his sister, Angel, has started coming into the house more. Angel, Sophie, and Misty all refuse to use the litterbox. They all pee on anything. They will pee on couches, clothes, or just the floor. We have 4 litterboxes in the house but all are completely untouched. They all do seem to usually poop outside but this is just a huge problem now. We think that Misty started it because she got jealous of the new cats and the others are peeing becasue she is peeing. Is there any way to fix this? It is out of control and the house smell awful! Angel will most likely start staying outside more as the weather gets nicer, she doesn't like being in the house then. But the other two can't stay outside. They run in and out and scratch on the doors and honestly probobly wouldn't last to long as outside cats. Please help! We've tried different types of litter, multiple litterboxes. nothing works.
