Cat peeing on the bed

I don't know what to do about it. She lives at my mums at the moment as I cant have her at my house as we are out all day. She has lived at my mums since was a kitten, now 5.5 years old. Since last November she has every now and again peed on the bed in the guest room (used to be my room, which is where she has always slept and where the litter box is), since the single bed in that room was replaced with a double. Over the last week or two she has peed on the bed pretty much every day, not just marking but big puddles. As a temporary measure, we have put a tarpaulin over the bed to protect the bedding and shes weeing on that. She also has a litter tray which is emptied every day and scrubbed out weekly which she is still using regularly. I'm thinking about taking her to the vet as she seems to be completely healthy in every other way but obviously this isn't normal behaviour. Would a feliway help? What else could I do if the vet gives her the all clear? She has been spayed when she was 6 months old or so.

Are you her person? Did she sleep on the old bed with you etc? She might just be upset because the bed doesn't smell of you anymore. It might be worth putting the duvet you sleep with now on that bed to see if that fixes things.

If it's stress related then a feliway diffuser should help.

Definitely try putting your current duvet on the bed then or your old one if it's still about. And come to visit as much as you can - sounds like she just misses you.

Does she get on well with your mum? Since you are her person then maybe she'd be happier living with you even if you're out during the day?

I'm definitely our cat's person and I think if I broke up with DP she'd be happier with me even if I was out all day and he wasn't. Not that she doesn't like DP - she just loves me more.

The duvet idea is the best one anyone could give, even if it took a few months for her to begin. It might just have taken her some time to adjust and realize you weren't living there anymore.

It would be a good idea to get a check-up too, just in case 8can never be too careful smile )
