Why does my cat pee on my clothes?
The explanation for a cat peeing on clothes will have a medical or behavioral origin. Cats often mark their territory with urine to claim it. Marking behavior is common when a cat shares territory with other cats. A cat that pees on clothing could be seeking attention from its owner because it’s jealous of another pet.
Why is my cat all of a sudden peeing on my bed?
Urinary tract infection, diabetes, and kidney disease are all common conditions in cats that can cause an inability to make it to the litter box or an aversion to using the box. If your cat urinates on your bed or anywhere else that isn’t the litter box, make an appointment with your veterinarian right away.
Why is my cat peeing on my bed and couch?
Your cat peeing on the bed or couch is a sign of a medical problem. Many serious medical problems can cause cats to avoid using litter boxes. A short list includes urinary tract infections, diabetes and arthritis, as well as a host of other painful and serious conditions.
Do cats pee out of spite?
Cats begin urinating outside the box as a response to something that is wrong, either with them or their environment. It is not just them “behaving badly” and cats don’t urinate inappropriately out of “spite”. Some cats can also have microscopic crystals in their bladders that can cause irritation.
How do you discipline a cat for peeing outside the litter box?
Make sure you never:
- Rub your cat’s nose in the urine or feces. This increases stress in cats.
- Yell at your kitty, or carrying/dragging it to the litterbox. Again, this is simply going to make things worse.
- Confine it and the litterbox to a small room.
- Use ammonia-based cleaners.
