Someone has had a few peeing "incidents" lately. I thought it was Beep, my oldest girl, but then I found out that it is, in fact, Taffy, my 6 year old maine coon male. Of course, I took him in, no UTI, he is all healthy, blood work is all good. We have had Stephano since last December, and they get along well together. They have access to 2 litter boxes, and I keep them very clean, they get scooped daily, or as needed and washed out weekly (the breeze monthly), so I don't think it's that. So I've been investigating this. I think that perhaps Stephano is not giving him enough privacy when he tries to go, so I have tried putting Taffy in the den, that has the litter box that he prefers, while he eats, so that he can go privately in there when he's done, only he is one of those cats that "freaks" if you try to change his routine. His routine is normally he eats in the kitchen and Steph eats in the den, so he won't eat if I put him in there. And he flips if I wait until he eats and then I put him in there, he won't go. So for now I have added another litter box, in the living room, near where the peeing has happened. He peed AND pooped on the dog bed two days ago, I was able to get the smell out with vinegar, water, washing, soaking, etc. He went on a couch cushion the other day, I scrubbed it and did the same and I think it's all good now. I'm losing it though. I can't handle this. Since adding the new litter box, he does seem very interested in it.....they ALL are interested in it, and it has become the new fun place to do ALL their business, GREAT, in the lving room, where I didn't want it, but I'll take that over peeing on cushions. He is not declawed, no UTI, I don't know why this is happening. Sorry, this is pretty much a rant, not a "what do I do", since I kind of know all the things to do, but it is making me insane, since I try so hard to keep litter boxes clean and everyone happy and my house to not smell like cat pee. This is so hard, I just want to cry.....no wait, I've done that. Sigh. I hope I can get a handle on this, or I may end up in a padded room.
