Feeling really quite negative at the moment about one of my cats.
I have three cats, two are rescues and I have no issues with them. The one I have problems with is the pampered Ragdoll boy who is just a nightmare with regard to weeing everywhere.
History is that he was my parents cat and they had similar issues with him. They then moved to a one bed flat with no garden due to my Dad increasingly becoming unwell (dementia) and I took the cat on as he was weeing everywhere there and Dad couldn't cope.
I have literally tried everything. He has been vet checked for UTIs and underlying issues which have all been ruled out.
We have Feliway plug ins.
I have one litter tray for each cat plus one extra.
I give him lots of individual attention.
All to no avail...
I recently bought a rug to cover multiple stains on the living room carpet and he has pissed on it multiple times. Problem is that I don't always catch him at it and only realise when I step in the wet patch.
My vet has now drawn a blank and all we can come up wi is that he is insecure in a multi cat household.
He has been in the garden all morning as the sun is out and yet came in and ate then had a wee on the rug. I only realised as I came into the room and caught him scratching over where he had done it. Yes it is wet...he has soaked it again.
I love him to bits but quite honestly I will never have a Tom cat EVER again as it is the first time I have ever had this with a cat.
He is gorgeous and loving, hugely cuddly and loved to snuggle up on the sofa in the evenings and I adore him but am honestly wondering if he would do better as a single cat in another home.
I am reluctant to part with him as even with a rescue I would worry about where he ended up. Another issue is that I never part with my cats...this would be a first if I did so.
Before I think about it further though I just wonder if anyone here has any magic ideas.
