Help! Feral cat using bed as lavatory!

I dont want to give the feral 7 month year old female up but if this continues I'll have to give her up. I want to make sure she is placed in a no kill shelter or adopted by someone who can spend quality time with her.
What is causing her to periodically do this ? She starts playing and getting worked up and BAM ! This is the second time she did this . I suspect she is peeing other places other than the in-box. Now I have to replace bedding and a mattress. Her litter box was cleaned the same day she did this. She has shots, no FL, just needs distemper shots, she is fixed. How can I get her to STOP!

Wow, there's a spate of kitties peeing on beds in the past couple of days! One of mine was doing this recently too.

Have you been to the vet recently? It seems like she's not able to hold her pee. I know that for others who've had this problem, it turned out that kitty had a UTI.

My cat had no health issues as far as the vet could tell. I just have to keep my bedroom door closed to make sure she's not tempted - she will also poop on the bed when she's constipated.

Do you have any other kitties? Is she stressed, maybe?

One suggestion is that you use Nature's Miracle to clean up, to make sure that the pheromones are gone. Otherwise, she'll be attracted to the same spot. If she's been peeing in other places, you'd probably know pretty quickly from the odor.

Help! Feral cat using bed as lavatory!

I just went through this. My cat is getting over a UTI but he is almost 14 years old. I would take her to the vet & see if that is the problem.

I couldn't save my mattress & just bought a new one with a waterproof mattress pad. I also bought waterproof mattress pads for my kids beds.

I kept my cat in my master bathroom for 5 days. I will probably keep him in there at night until his medicine is gone.

I hope you have better luck with the Nature's Miracle. It stinks when they do things like this. But it is best to get them checked out by a vet.

You said she's feral? Like rehabilitated feral, or like you just brought her into the house and she's never lived around humans before feral?

I think that makes a difference, so I hope you will clarify how she came to be part of your household. My response will be totally different if she's a true feral versus if she's a fully socialized cat who acts a bit wild or shy sometimes, or somewhere in the middle.
