Do you have a problem with your cat peeing everywhere in your house except for where it is supposed to?
Does this problem have you at your wit’s end, and you are considering doing something pretty drastic, like getting rid of your cat? Don’t make any hasty decisions just yet.
Just because your cat is peeing where it shouldn’t doesn’t mean that this is a problem that will last forever, as long as you do something about it.
You don’t have to get rid of your cat just because it is peeing all over the house. What you need to do is learn how to solve the problem, without causing too much stress, both to the cat and yourself. In fact, sometimes it is stress that causes cats to pee outside of their boxes, and it may be something for you to look into.
Yes, cats can get stressed out, just like their human owners (or slaves, however you wish to look at it).
There are all kinds of things that can stress out a cat. Sometimes simply moving furniture around and redecorating can cause your cat to become confused, and this confusion can lead to stress. To show that they are upset, they will pee on something, most often, your new furniture.
Another thing that can really stress out your cat is moving to a new location.
This is never any fun for anyone, but, it is even less of a fun adventure for your cat. This can lead to your cat peeing everywhere. And, it may not just be stress either. Your cat may also want to mark out its territory. This is a really good reason to make sure that your cat is spayed or neutered.
Sometimes a move may not be stressful to your kitty, but, it may have trouble finding the new location of its litter box. If this happens, and your cat has to go really bad, it is going to go wherever it decides to.
We moved once and even though our cat was able to find its box alright, it didn’t like the location. So, we had the problem of the cat peeing everywhere until we found a new location for the litter box.
