The first indicator that something is wrong with your kitty cat is that it starts peeing anywhere and everywhere – your bed, in the kitchen, your bathroom. And immediately you notice this erratic peeing behaviour, you should book an appointment with the Vet.
Common Cat health conditions that are indicated by peeing everywhere include Urinary tract infection, bladder stones, and interstitial cystitis.
Fortunately, these conditions are treatable, and once your kitty cat gets better, it’ll most likely resume peeing at the appropriate locations.
However, if your vet determines that there is no underlying medical condition with your kitty cat, then peeing everywhere could be due to any of the other reasons explained below:
Cats are highly territorial animals, and the introduction of a new cat, bringing in a new-born child or the presence of stray, hostile cats could lead to your Feline spraying urine everywhere, in an attempt to ‘reclaim or mark boundaries’.
Also, if you have recently moved places, your cat could begin peeing everywhere to announce its presence to the other cats in the new neighbourhood.
Problems with the Litter Box
If your cat is suddenly peeing outside its litter box, it could be because you’ve recently changed the location of the box. And if your kitty doesn’t like the new location, it is forced to look for new, ‘more conducive’ peeing locations.
Additionally, if the litter box is too small for your cat to use, or you do not clean it regularly, then you shouldn’t complain when your cat starts peeing on your bed. And, if your kitty cat associates the location of its litter box with danger, it tends to want to pee elsewhere.
When it’s mating season, and your cat is in heat, it tends to pee everywhere to attract potential partners. The urine of a cat in heat smells attractive to potential partners, and it is also a means by which Felines leave messages for each other.
Cats can’t cope with stress, and you should not rule this out as the reason your furry friend suddenly starts peeing everywhere. If your cat is worried about something, or the atmosphere at home is not conducive for it, erratic behaviour such as peeing anywhere might come into play.
Cats don’t pee out of spite, and you should work on making your cat more comfortable.
