cats peeing on bed.

i have 4 cats. 2 males and 2 females all spayed or neutered. the youngest of the females pees on the bed. i have ruled out a urinary infection bc of the infrequency of the urinating. she will not do it for about a month or so... then she will. she usually will do it for three days straight. then stop for a month or so. she has been doing this since i have had her and it has gotten to the point where something has to change. she is such a beautiful cat and i hate to get rid of her or make her an outside cat. any ideas. oh yea... clomicalm doesn't seem to help.

any ideas.
Welcome to CatForum and here are my ideas:
#1, Unless the cat has been examined by a veterinarian and a urinalysis performed, a UTI *cannot* be ruled out.
#2, What needs to change, is you need to have your kitty examined by a vet specifically for UTI *during* the time she pees on the bed.

After this has been done, they we may discuss behavioral issues and resolutions, but not until a veterinarian has medically ruled out UTI. Because of the cycle you describe, I think it *does* sound like a UTI with some kind of factor that triggers it and causes it to recur regularly.
Best of luck,
heidi =^..^=

Re: cats peeing on bed.

Agreed. She needs to be seen by a vet. UTI's, especially if they are a low grade infection, can cause discomfort to come and go. If they are uncomfortable peeing, they often avoid the box.
Certainly, that's the first course of action.
