I've had Casper for about 8 months. Casper is a registered "exotic shorthair"....in other words, a Persian, he has very long hair, although I got him body clipped about 3 weeks ago, too many mats. He's a year and a half old, neutered and declawed. He's very outgoing and affectionate, and very playful. Shortly after we got him we noticed he was urinating behind the TV, so we blocked it so that he couldn't get back there anymore, we thought that stopped it. During the last couple of months he's been urinating on the carpet at least once or twice a week. He's been ill with a UTI, he's been to the vet twice, his last check up revealed that his UTI is cleared up, that was a little over a week ago. Yet, he is still urinating on the carpet. The vet asked me if he was urinating in the same place every time, he wasn't, until now. She said that if he was urinating in different places, that it was probably an aftermath of the UTI, but that if he was urinating in the same place each time, that it is now a habit. Well, Casper has urinated in the same place 3 times this week. Our home is brand new, it's not even a year old yet. I simply cannot have this. My husband and I are both attached to Casper, but feel that we need to find him a new home, but then on the other hand, how do you give away a cat that has made a habit of urinating on the carpet? I can't see anyone wanting him because of his "issue". Last night I locked him in the bathroom with a litter box, food and water. I don't know what else to do, I'll let him out when we're able to watch him, but other than that, his home is now the bathroom. Both my husband and I work full time, plus we breed, raise, train, and sell horses, so that's like a 2nd full time job. I know that a "bathroom home" is not a suitable full time home for a cat, but I'm out of options. I've tried changing the type of litter that I use, I've tried the crystals, I've tried taking the lid off of the enclosed litter box and just leaving it open, I've tried the enzyme carpet cleaners, but the odor continues. Casper will do his "other business" in the litter box, just not the most important "business"!! Casper has a buddy that he plays with and gets along great with, she's our other house cat, Reba, so it's not like he's desperately lonely, although I'm sure he is right now because he's separated from her because he's in the bathroom. I'm sorry this is so long, but if anyone has any suggestions or wants to give Casper a new home, please respond or email me directly. We are located in Fort Cobb, OK, which is about 35 miles West of Chickasha, OK. I have pictures of Casper to send if anyone is interested.
