Q: Cat peed in the hamper

July 9, 2010 | By Stephanie | 7 answers | Expired: 1521 days ago


The drama continues... Both Grease and Buddy are outside now. I thought they had not had any bathroom breaks outside the litter box, but I was wrong. Last night Grease (the one not adjusting to the new kitten) climbed into the hamper in my bedroom, which he used to do a lot. While gathering laundry, I saw that he peed on my clothes. I'm wondering if I should move the litter box from upstairs to the bottom of the stairs, then to the top of the stairs...and so on?

first of all has grease been fixed. IF Grease has not been fixed than go get him fixed. If he has been fixed please follow the previous advise

i'd lock him in a room for a few days to unwind. honestly, it's amazing the difference when a cat has a few days to themselves. otherwise the stress can continue to mount, which often leads to urinating on our things. continued stress also leads to urinary track, bladder, or kidney infections, which means a trip to the vet for antibiotics.
use an enzymatic cleaner {natures miracle, zero odor} to clean your clothes, or else the urine won't really come out. you may not smell it after a regular washing, but your cats will. wash off the clothing, then douse them in the enzymatic cleaner, then wash them again adding some of the cleaner to your laundry.
