Our cat has been sick for about 2 months. We have had him to 2 vets. The problem...he was using his litter box with no problems for years...then suddenly he pee'd on our couch. so, we starting thinking that that was not right, he must be sick. so we immediatly took him to the vet. the vet gave him an antibotic shot and after a few days, he seemed to be getting better. then, he pee'd on our bed, we took him back to the vet, and he put him on another round of meds. this seemed to work, about a week later, he goes back and pee'd on the couch again. we take him back to the vet, he checks his urine and finds crystals. he puts him on some more meds, and changes his food. so, he finished all the meds, he started acting good and looked like he was back to normal. then, he goes and pee's on the bed AGAIN! so the vet gave him another round of meds...he is back on medicine, and we have moved ?? do you think there is something more to his illness that we need to check on??

I don't know of any meds but I had this problem with my cat and I moved her cat box to a less public location and it stopped, you might want to try that.

My old cat used to do this once because we changed her kitty litter brand and she wasn't happy with it, and once because they found out that she had a urinary tract infection and was doing it out of proximity. Eventually it turned out she had more serious bladder/kidney problems when she started doing it again.

If there are crystals did they look for stones? I have had this problem with a couple of my cats and they had bladder stones. The quickest way to find out is do an x-ray. When my cats had this we did stone removal surgery and it worked. Then we get the special diet to help prevent more stones. I do have one cat that does this to mark territory, it is a female and yes she is fixed. Another reason can be FUS (feline urinary syndrome or something like that) and antibiotics help but it never goes away and will crop up again and again. Sorry these are not the easy answers but you may ask the vet about these things. Good Luck.
