cat weeing on clothes

So when I get home from work I change into home clothes. Pj bottoms or tracksuit trousers.
When I go to bed I take them off and leave them on the floor by the bed.
When I got up this morning and yesterday, they were covered in cat wee.
Any ideas?

What are her normal littering arrangements?

She's an indoor cat. Along with an older male.
We've had him for 3 years and her for one.
They have a litter tray each. Although they mostly use one for wee and one for poo.

I suspect it is younger female cat but can't be sure. Last year she went through a stage of peeing on my bed but with some behaviour spray that stopped. She did that twice

They haven't by any chance had a falling out over the last few days have they? If the litter trays are nice and clean (worth really going at that one) it sounds like it might be a protest pee - which usually means one of the cats is T'd off with the other for some reason.

Thanks for the reply. I will look out for signs of a fall out but I don't think so.
Could it be torward me? She only wants to be stroked when I'm in bed so I often then ignore her or put her on the floor.

It can also sometimes be a sign of cystitis. Have you watched her wee normally since then? Has she shown any unusual behaviour while doing it?

She seems to be behaving normally. Think she's in season, she is making those calling noises but ok apart from that.

She's not neutered then? What about him ?

thecatneuterer Fri 19-Apr-13 13:57:31

Why isn't she neutered?

SilveryMoon Fri 19-Apr-13 16:47:21

She's not, no. He is.
She isn't neutered because she was given to me by someone I know who one day decided she didn't want her sad. I couldn't afford to get her done straight away and since then it is something I haven't got round to for a number of reasons.
I will be getting her done soon though.

I'd book her in ASAP then. You'll likely find that that will affect her behaviour so it would be best to have that done before assessing it.

Yes unneutered female house cats end up going crazy and it affects them in all sorts of ways. I would get it done straight away.

Thanks. Ii will get her booked in at the end of the month.

It might be worth seeing if any of your local rescues do free neutering if money is a problem at the moment. You could always donate them the money you would have spent when you get paid and they'd be able to gift aid the donation which means they'll end up better off.

when cats start peeing elsewhere they are trying to tell you something, take her to the vet, better safe than sorry, it's worth the cost of the appointment. Have you eliminated other potential reasons? dirty litter tray? intruder coming in to house? etc?
