Cat peeing on EVERYTHING

We have a 15 year old cat. He is wonderful & has never had an accident outside his litter box until recently. He will pee anywhere & everywhere--the linen closet if the door isn't shut tight, my DS's son, my DD's school bag, the dirty laundry basket, anyplace that is fabric, basically. I've cleaned & try to pick up everything but he just find new places. Any suggestions?

  • He could have a bladder infection. I would take him to the vet. Good luck!

  • Definitely take him to the vet, especially considering his age.

  • Stupid tab key ...

    I recently had to take my 7 year old male to the vet for the same reason. He had an urinary tract blockage.

  • I agree with the other answers, definitely take him to the vet. It could be a UTI, but it could also be diabetes (especially in older male cats)... Either way, there's usually a medical reason for a change in behavior like that...

  • It might be old age. Do you have a male cat? Sometimes male cats will pee to mark their territory. I had a 13 yr old dog that did the same, but he was ill. He'd poop and piss on the carpet. Plus, with arthritis in his back legs, it made it difficult for him to get up.
    But you should take the cat to the vet for a check-up just to be sure he doesn't have some bladder infection.

  • To be honest when I took my cat to the vet for the same reason... was told it was time to let her go... I know cats kidneys deteriorate as they get older...
