My 3 year old cat Sticous has recently began peeing on things sitting in my floor such as dirty clothes, back packs, even shoes. Her litter box is cleaned after use and she does sometimes urinate in the litter box. But if there is something sitting on the floor it is definitely getting peed on. If nothing is sitting on the floor she sometimes pees on the couch as well. She has never had a problem with training until now and this started out of the blue. We haven't changed litter, she shouldn't be stressed, I have no other cats, and I have already been to the vet and there is no medical explanation. Someone please HELP ME!

Along with my response to the other thread, I also want to add that sometimes it's like keeping kitty from "failing." Like don't set them up for failure. If you know that she pees on stuff on the floor, then keep it picked up. Restrict their access to the areas that are problems for them. It's like retraining them to do the right thing- steering them in the direction that is allowed. You can't scold a cat like a dog and get a response. You have to change their patterns. Hope this helps.
