Hello, I have 2 indoor only cats, Lili (5) and Amy (3), both spayed as young kittens, friendly to each other. Lili has been peeing on one spot outside the litterbox for months now, even on the wall! We had 2 litterboxes when this behavior started. She always pees in a specific corner in the living room. Just pees, she defecates into the litterboxes. We tried several things - firstly, we placed one of the litterboxes into that corner. It did not help. She peed right next to it. I tried to clean that corner thoroughly, with chemicals so harsh it made me cough and I scratched off some of the wall paint. Then I tried scented candles, and this spray from the pet shop that is supposed to deter cats from that place. Nothing helped. I poured pure alcohol into that spot and the whole living room smelled awful, it obviously stank for our cats too, yet she STILL peed into that corner! I went to the vet, because she used to pee into our bed as a tiny kitten, when she caught a cold, but the vet says she is ok, and told me to try soaking a piece of toilet paper iwith her pee and place it under the litterbox sand. I tried placing old carpets there. Did not help either. Then I placed an open litterbox there, thinking she might not like the closed litterboxes.. and it helped! But.. my boyfriend (we live together), could not stand the smell from an open litterbox and he took it away... We didnt know what to do anymore.. we closed the living room and didnt let the cats go there for weeks, thinking it might help stop the behavior. When she had no access to the living room, she always peed into her 2 closed litterboxes. So after a couple weeks we let them go into the living room again... and she started peeing into that corner again.. we bought a third closed litterbox, thinking 2 litterboxes might not be enough for them... she still pees right next to it.. I dont know what to do anymore. Is she scared of something outside? We have huge windows in the living room. We also placed some new furniture into the living room but that was before she started peeing there. I even thought she might be bored and she is crying for attention, so I started going out with her for walks and nothing is helping. She peed into her litterbox normally for 4 years, except when she caught a cold as a kitten. I am desperate, this constant cleaning every day is really tiring and not normal. What do I do?
