Our cat is 15 and was diagnosed a few months ago with kidney failure. He's not in pain or anything, but he is drinking water like crazy and therefore peeing a lot. He has started using the carpet instead of the litter box but I'm not sure exactly why. My husband wants to have him put down because we cannot deal with the smell and filth. I don't want to deal with it either, but I was wondering if anyone had any ideas or alternative suggestions to euthanasia at this point.

Check with your vet. I would consider the quality of life this poor cat has and the expense of a kidney infection is costly, I know I had a cat with that. I know it will be heart breaking if you have to put her away, but put her health first and your feelings after. Good luck hon, my heart goes out to you for sure. Been there done that.
