    How to Stop Your Cat Peeing in the House | Kitten Ads

    Articlegeneral cat adviceThursday 07 April 2011
    Cat urine all over the house is never a good thing. If your cat urinates in all the wrong places it can be a frustrating time for all. You will need to get your cat to use his litter box instead of your belongings. For a guide to stop your cat urinating all over the house, see the following tips and advice.

    • Firstly, when you want to stop your cat urinating, you should not rule out a health problem at all. Take the cat to the vet in case the excessive cat urine is the result of an illness or painful infection that could potentially be fatal. Once you have ascertained that there is not health issue, you can start to think about other possibilities.

    • Make sure that your cat’s litter box is clean as he will not use a dirty one. If you have more than one cat in the house, you should provide a litter box for each one. This will minimise the chance of cat urine in inappropriate places.

    • Wherever you have cat urine spots in the house, you should clean them until they are totally gone. Your cat will use these spots again and again, so by removing the stains and the smells, he will not re-visit these areas. Every time your cat urinates in the wrong place, be sure to clean it thoroughly away.

    • Have a look to see that the routine of your cat has not been disrupted or that it has not changed. Sometimes a cat urinates in strange places in order to communicate that something is wrong to you. Reasons for this changed behaviour could be: a change in diet; more time spent away from your cat.
    The above advice is a process of elimination to stop your cat urinating everywhere.
