She doesn't seem like want to hide or something.
She just pee on a flat area and walk out with a "I don't get a fxxk" face.
I don't know what she's thinking and what I can do for her.
"She has peed in front of me
... 2 times." Your cat is YELLING at you, but the problem is you don't understand what she is trying to tell you.
Your cat is telling you, in the only way she has, that she has a problem. The peeing in other areas was the first clue. The peeing in other areas *in front of you
* is an even bigger clue. She is trying to get your attention so you can help her.
The number one reason cats pee in inappropriate areas is due to a medical problem.
This could be crystals in her urine, kidney stones and/or an infection/inflamation because of either of these problems. She needs to see the vet, so the vet can get a urine sample for analysis. Depending on what the vet finds, will determine how she is treated. Treatment can consist of medications and diet changes to keep her hydrated and change the Ph of her urine to prevent crystals and stones from developing.
The reason she is peeing in other areas is because crystals/stones/infection/inflamation is *painful* and she associates the litter-box with that pain. She tries to pee in other
areas, hoping it won't hurt to pee *there*. They will pee on soft things and smooth surfaces, trying to find somewhere, anywhere!, that it doesn't hurt to pee.
The best thing for removing urine odors is to use an enzymatic cleaner. Really soak it into the area. You can give it a light scrub, but it is best if you really soak it and let it air dry. This gives the enzymes time to break down the odor-causing microbes. Sometimes you have to treat a heavily soiled area several times by soaking and letting it air dry.
Best of luck, and let us know what the vet says...
