|I wasn't sure where to post this, but I figured I'd try with people who might be able to relate better. I have a 22 year old cat, he's been an indoor/outdoor cat up until he turned 20 (I've had him since he was a kitten so I know all his goofy behaviors and antics), because he was getting bullied by other outdoor cats due to his arthritis and he is a fight picker. So he has been an indoor cat for the last 2 years. His last checkup they told me they couldn't believe he was 22 because he has the body of a 13 year old (lol), however, he was doing great up until about 6 months ago.
For whatever reason, he is not using his litter box properly anymore, he is starting to pee on the floor, he picks a spot and sticks with it, but he is peeing on the floor none the less. He still goes poo in the box, but we just cannot seem to get him to pee in it, I am at a complete loss, has anyone else ever experienced this with an older cat? Any insight to what the problem might be? They tell me his kidneys are fine, etc. so I am just so frustrated, and I do not know what to do. We have sprayed all over the house the no-pee training spray and what not, but it's 20 bucks a bottle and only lasts under a week, and it still doesn't deter him from going in his "spot". Any, and I mean ANY insight, or tips on what I can do would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance!
