|Hey Catster! It's been a while. I really need some insight because I'm losing my mind. Attila, for the last couple weeks, has been peeing on EVERYTHING. While still using his litter box for poop, he has chosen to urinate on the dog's bed, any cloth items on the floor, my purses and bags... Heck one night i accidentally knocked my pillow off the bed and come morning it was saturated. He does it right in front of me too! Besides the obvious reasons that this is a problem, I am super allergic to cat pee and I feel like I'm dying.
So it was never really uncommon for him to vindictively urinate every huge once in a while as a way to express his dissatisfaction with me (ie- telling him NO and shooing him, when I made him just an in-door cat, when we've moved, often if a guy was over...). He is sensitive and shows it. But this is excessive and I can't find a reason. The only things that have changed recently are these:
-The weather (I wonder if the cold bothers his leg)
-Right around the same time Attila discovered he could pry open the little trap door to the plumbing in our bathtub, Raider found out she could destroy toilet paper, so I began closing the bathroom door which has bothered him. He will stand on his hind legs and paw at the door knob, and whenever I go in there he comes running to try to get in.
-New bag of food
-I was seeing someone (but that ended a week ago)
...yeah I can't really think of anything else. While I was typing this he came over and started to pee right next to me. I ran him to the litter box where he scratched, squatted, and was there for a while but then dashed off and I don't see much pee. He's gone back in there three times now which is weird, and when he leaves it he dashes out. I clean it often and just recently scrubbed it down, but I'm going to do it again today.
I will take him to the vet if the problem persists, but because 99% of the time he's acting normal, looks great, and is still pooping where he's supposed to, I'm trying to troubleshoot first.
