So the cat has peed in the corner again.. This is a chronic problem. I gave my two other cats to my ex to see if that would help and it obviously hasn't. The litter box was fairly clean and she decided to use my youngest sons room yet again.
Some people have suggested re litter box training her which I honestly do not think that will help. Nor do I have the time to do that. I also do not have the money to take her to the vet for more urinalysis tests. The last one she had was normal. The vet believed it was a stress related issue.
So I am at my breaking point. I have had to rip carpet out, throw stuffed animals out that belong to my 2 month old and try to keep my husband from choking her himself.
I can't/don't want to try and defend her anymore. Do I take her to the pound and wish her luck or make the hard decision to put her down. FYI- Her adoption chances suck with her attitude and issues.

Some cats urinate outside the litter box for idiopathic reasons. In other words, sometimes there is no answer. To the first poster, your response was a bit harsh. Personally I would not have any animal urinating or defecating in my home. It is unsanitary and can be a health issue for humans. Retraining is not always easy nor successful. If the cat in question also has issues with temperament and you honestly can not work with this cat then euthanasia is acceptable. It is very hard to place any animal with aggression issues.
