    So I contacted a cat behaviourist (a well known one) who said she was covered by most large pet insurers, I then contacted Petplan who said: "Behavioural treatment will be considered under your Veterinary Fees, providing it is carried out by a recognised association, and APBC is one of these in our terms and conditions."

    I still have to pay the excess of course, but will still be a big saving!

    Hopefully she can see something I'm not and we can sort this weeing problem out :)

    Definitely let us know how you get on...desperate to know.

    Husband's happy to fund a behaviourist as long as they sort the problem...that's not helpful.

    Snoopy is currently residing in the kitchen but I don't want that for her perminently could you try that?

    I think I will wait til next week as back at work tomorrow for 6 shifts, need to get british gas in and got an electrician coming I think a behaviourist may tip Snoopy over the edge to crying :)

    I considered the idea of keeping her in one room - but as she uses the tray most of the time I suspect it would happen again eventually once she's let out! Am going to get a consultation from Vicky Halls - pricey but insurance will cover it. Just need to get vet referral (she only does vet referrals) and pre-authorisation from Petplan that they'll pay and then I'll set a date with her :)

    There must be hope for us!
