We have two indoor neutered male cats. They have lived together for about a year now and except for a brief spell of peeing in plants and on firewood last winter (which stopped when we got rid of the Christmas tree after Christmas), they mostly do quite well. They do claw the sofa, but I have accepted this as part of having cats.
In the past two weeks, they have begun peeing on EVERYTHING. We have been spot cleaning and trying to figure out what's going on and then yesterday, in about a 12 hour period, they apparently sprayed down everything from an upholstered chair (soaked it - likely cannot be salvaged) to all the clean baby blankets folded in a bassinet to curtains to clothing to corners. We have spent the entire day scrubbing the house from top to bottom and laundering everything we own and we STILL keep finding stuff soaking in cat urine. It's horrifying. I've never seen animals do anything like this on this scale all of a sudden.
So cat experts, here is what we are doing. Tell us if we are missing something:
-Cats will go to vet to be checked
-We bought some of that Feliway cat hormone stuff to spray around
-Placed new litterbox downstairs in addition to the one upstairs
-Thoroughly cleaned, mopped, laundered and scrubbed house
-Spraying really bad areas with that Nature's Miracle stuff that's supposed to break up animal urine enzymes and remove smell
Thankfully, we are all hardwood floors and have no throw rugs to speak of, so we are not dealing with rugs and carpet.
In trying to figure this out, I am wondering if the fact that I am very pregnant might be disturbing them (hormonal thing). They seem especially fond of peeing on **my** clothing if I happen to leave it on the floor.
I am saying "they" but we really don't know if this is one or both cats.
All suggestions welcome.
