  • Kill it lol

    That's why I don't have pets.

  • Try renting a steam cleaner and get the pet solution to get the odor out. After that I would probably have the cat checked if its an older cat and peeing on furniture. Make sure it doesnt have some sort of kidney issue or whatever.

  • I'm sorry but cat pee is the worst- the smell is almost impossible to get rid of. If the vet says there's no infection, maybe you can keep it isolated to the basement or something. I dont know how old your cat is, but this may be a sign it's time to put it down. I know that's a heartwrenching decision, but it may need to be considered. GL

  • I have two cats. One has that behavior problem...steam clean it as soon as it happens.
    Its funny though my cat that likes to pee everywhere I got mad put him in a crate and HE loves it. I found out by the vet he was looking for his "personal" space.
    We have two cats two different liter boxes and every time we turn around we have to clean out liter boxes. Then the cat that likes to pee on my couch & very where else we "have" to buy him special food from the vet Grr...but the crate does help. We let him out when we are home. But when we go out and go to sleep he goes in the crate. He actually likes it
    If you cat pees everywhere and lot like my cat use to talk t o your vet asap he might have a peeing problem like my cat did. We had to change his food
    Good luck

  • Peeing is either a sign of illnesses ot a behavior problem, here are some reasons a cat will do this:
    -Owner leaves to go on vacation or starts working long hours and isn't around as much as usual.
    - New pet is added to the household.
    -New family member (such as a baby) is added to the household or guests visit.
    - Loud noises outside, such as construction, people or animals fighting, thunderstorms, or fireworks.
    -Redecorating-sometimes even moving furniture can do it.
    -You name it-cats and change do not get along!

    If there has been change or even if there hasn't in the family be sure you are providing the essential care.
