Cat's bad peeing behavior

If your cat made a mess, don't be mad about it. There might be a reason why your cat urinates on the floor instead of using the litter box. Actually there will be a reason for sure because cats might "spray" at your furniture to mark their territory but they will certainly not do this on your carpet or floor.

If your cat made a mess, don’t be mad about it. There might be a reason why your cat urinates on the floor instead of using the litter box. Actually there will be a reason for sure because cats might “spray” at your furniture to mark their territory but they will certainly not do this on your carpet or floor. Cats spray vertically, similar to dogs…

In order to find out what might be the reason for this behavior of your cat, you need to observe your cat and find out what could be wrong. Here are some ideas of what to look for:

  • Make sure the litter box is clean. Your cat does not like a dirty or stinky litter box.
  • Is the litter box in the right environment? Where did you place the litter box? Hopefully at a silent place like the basement of your house.
  • Is the litter box big enough? Your cat need some space to perform his ritual. The cat needs to be able to turn around without touching the litter box walls.
  • If you 2 or more cats, then you might need more than one litter box. Some cats don’t like to share their own place with other cats.
  • Your cat might be stressed. Most cats react very sensible when confronted with to much stress. Make sure your cat has a silent place to “hide”.
  • Is your cat sick? Sometimes these accidents can be a signal for a disease. Take your cat to the doctor if necessary.

However, make sure your cat likes his home and his “bath-room”. If there is still an unnatural behavior, go to the doctor with your cat. Make sure it gets professional treatment, an expert is always better than a friend who knows a lot about cats…

Here are some tips on how you can make your and your cat’s life easier:

There are certain things that you can take care of in order to provide your cat a clean place to go.
Use these advises and your cat will thank you for the good care by loving you.

  • You should put at least 3 sheets of newspaper at the bottom of the litter box. then fill the litter box with enough litter, at least 3 inches.
  • Change the litter at least every 3 days
  • Clean the whole litter box at least every 2 weeks
  • Use a mild soap and a lot of water to clean the litter box, don’t use ammonia or chemical cleaners. They might hurt your cat’s nose because the smell very strong.
  • Don’t put the litter box on a carpet, it might feel for your cat as if it was litter…
  • get the “big” mess out the litter box every day.
  • If you use clumping litter, scoop it at least once a day.

If your cat has made the mess, you need to clean it up. To get rid of the odor and stains completely get a professional cat urine cleaner. Home made cleaning products or average urine eliminator products won’t work. Here is some more information about that: http://www.caturine-cleaner.com
