Momma gets to talk today - I guess it is good that I am really cute, cause I have been having some accidents.
Well, first - I found the Onsior at pet360 for $39.75 for 15 pills. The vet wanted $75! woohoo. I am getting the gabapentin made into chew treats (thanks Boxie Brown for that info)
So my little darling has also been going under the edge of my bed, on my side. I put a nice new litter box in my room, with low sides and everyone else is using it. For the past day or so, I kind of wake up from a sound sleep cause I could smell pee (I know weird right?) But then I couldn't find or smell it later. I went to put a sweater on that I had on the floor (don't judge lol) and it smelled like pee. Here all this time I am blaming poor Tig as he does have a spray issue, and he has peed outside a time or two. I think maybe it is because he is so stressed that it is easier to just go there, as he sleeps under the bed. I will be talking to the vet about this, but I somehow don't think it is due to pinched nerves in his back. If it was incontinence wouldn't it be all over? and if he was born that way, wouldn't it have always been like that? but then the other day when I caught him on the rug, it sort of seemed like he didn't realize he was peeing. He has been on antibiotics for almost a month, so it isn't an infection. I am going to move the bed in a few mintues to see what/where he is going. I am almost afraid to. I really need this on top of everything else.....I just have no idea how to stop it. I thought for sure the litter box in there would help in case he was scared to leave the room at night. Maybe I will move it by the bedside (kind of ew - but hey whatever works) and see if that helps. I am so overwhelmed by this, between Tig spraying & now Feef piddling - I swear I smell pee all the time. I was at the grocery, and I am like "do I smell cat pee?" to myself. I hope that maybe when the Onsior comes he won't hurt so much & that might work. He has not done this all the time, probably only the past month or two - now that I know that was him & not Tig going on my office rug. Perhaps it is the stress of everything around here. Has anyone used the pee pads with sucess? I will try anything at this point. Luckily, we were chosen for the behavior study that I saw on here - they are studying aggression & behavior issues, so maybe they will have a solution too. I even thought that maybe a one of those very large cages that will fit a box for him at night. I hate to do that either, but I may have no choice, since he seems to just do this at night.

I hope your Momjy finds out what's going on. Maybe it's stress or since you're bigger your body has changed and you can't hold your pee? I hope the study helps.
We're purring for you and your mom, Felix. We hope the vet and/or the study will help get things figured out.
Hugs & Purrs,
Pee Pee Pee and then spray a little while we kitties don't seem to mind it sure is rough on our moms. Mom and I have dealt with my spray issues for years and now mom thinks it is just stress from the enviroment inside and out, the outside kitties in my yard stress me and then when one of the mates I live with jumps on or runs at me in play I am to stressed to play so I spray. Now I am banished a to a little out door enclosure on the patio I love it. Not sure what we could have done if the enclosure was not an option for me..... mom has replaced flooring, drapes, and furniture all because of me..... no one else has this issue.
Sorry for the ramble we sure hope the pee pads help, my family sure understand the stress your mom is dealing with
I have had this problem! Mommy says it's because we have alot of territorial issues. This is what Mommy has found has helped...
1) Feliway. In Every Room.
2) 2 Cat trees. Big ones for us to play on. We really like them.
It gives us vertical territory!
3) Cube beds that are enclosed. It gives us places to go and have our own 'dens'.
4) Mommy has 4 large litterpans in the living room. She scoops regularly. There is another in the bedroom. Scooping really regularly.
5) Calming collars that aren't around necks but doorknobs. They do help.
Mommy uses enzyme sprays to clean but also a spray she likes called 'anti icky poo you can buy it on Amazon. Good buy and really helps!
We hope this helps somewhat....also, raw valarian twigs in old socks, knotted up.....humans don't like the smell, but we cats do and it relaxes us. We play with the socks like catnip!
Purrs. many many purrs!
