FabCat is giving me a dilemma

We share a sofa. I have to move her every time to her side. Sitting with her is lovely but it stinks sad. She has smelt like soggy doggy for a few days but around the sofa stinks of wee. I can't see her weeing deliberately on the sofa tbh so think she must be leaking urine. Her kidneys are failing as well as her having arthritis and a brain illness. She is nearly 16 years 9 months. Is it possible she is leaking due to her kidney failure? She has always been a very clean cat and is washing herself as I type but I need to find out what is wrong and also need help with how to get the sofa clean.

She is due at the vet on Tuesday so will be asking then if no one has any ideas before then.

Have you tried using bio washing liquid/powder to clean initially, getting it as wet as you dare, then rub bicarbonate of soda into the patch, then let it dry? Also, put a drynite bed protector under her when she's sitting with/on you.

So sorry you're going through this...

I am off to bed now - FabCat refusing to go hmm - so will try tomorrow. Thank you.

Put a throw on the sofa - one you can wash easily.

Put binbags under the sofa covers to protect the cushions as much as possible.

Give FabCat a >chin rub< >whisker twitch< from PidjCat and PidjBunny

Have a serious talk with the vet about how much she is suffering sad

I will be on Tuesday about her not eating and the urine thing. I don't know what she is suffering tbh apart from having to have the drugs (though have cut down from 4 to 2) and not always getting the food she would rather eat. She has a pretty good life. toys, a big garden, cosy bed, sleeps whenever she wants, is carried to bed if she doesn't fancy walking. Spoilt? Nah grin.
