|I have a friend whose cat was peeing outside the box (determined to be a behavior issue, not a medical one). L-Theanine is helping. It's the ingredient in Anxitane®. My friend is using L-Theanine instead of Anxitane® since it's cheaper, but a vet determined the dose for her to use.
Here's a link: ANXITANE®
It's something to ask your vet about. It sounds as if Einstein may have both medical and behavioral issues. Stress could be exacerbating the medical issues, so an anti-anxiety supplement might help. At this point, I'd think it's worth checking into.
Here's a vet's page on Facebook that anyone will be able to see, whether you're on Facebook or not. Just close out the big pop-up window that wants you to sign up for Facebook in order to 'connect' with Dr. Nichol. You don't have to 'connect' with him to be able to see the page. Dr. Nichol has been using Anxitane® successfully, and has a recent post (Nov 5) about it. That post is about dogs but Dr. Nichol advised my friend with her cat, too.
Also, have you tried pee pads in places where Einstein pees? You can get cheap bed pads for people at Target or WalMart (usually near the pharmacy section) for probably less than you'll pay for 'puppy pee pads' in the pet dep't.
