We have a tabby who is about 7 -10 years old, we got him as a stray! He was a house cat but when my dd arrived (20 weeks ago) he started to want to go out. We eventually let him out when he started to pee everywhere - spraying it up the walls, doors etc. On Friday he got in a fight and has torn his third eyelid, needless to say he's not allowed out until it is all sorted. Anyone got any ideas how to get him to stop peeing everywhere? Vet thinks his nose has been put out of joint because of baby.

is he neutered? If not I suggest that is the first thing to try.

Yes, he was neutered before we got him. His litter tray is enclosed but is in the hallway - I'll try moving it away from there. I'll also try the feliway, never heard of it but will give it a go. Are they expensive?

I has a similar problem with one of mine when I fell pregnant. A second litter tray helped (but we have several cats) and lots and lots of fuss. They often feel a bit put out when they realise they're not your (only) baby any more, but they usually get over it eventually. Try to make a bit of time for him during the course of the day (easier said than done with a new baby I know) and he should start to come around. Second what kormachameleon said too about keeping an eye out in case of other underlying problems.
