Ever since we moved to our new house, our cat keeps urinating in every corner of the house. More recently, in front of the back door. How can I make him stop? He has been totally declawed, so we can't just let him loose... Please Help...
He may be smelling old urine spots, and he may be a bit discombobulated at a new environment.
Clean up all the spots with Natures Miracle. Purchase Feliway and use it in every room in which your cat has urinated. Feliway is a plug in cat pheromone air freshener. It gives a cat a feeling of well being in new or uncomfortable situations.
Lastly, try and get a fresh urine sample from your cat. You can also syringe the urine off of the floor, if the floor is fairly clean. Bring it to your vet for urinalysis ASAP. The most common cause of inappropriate urination is urinary tract infection, interstitial cystitis, or bladder stones or crystals. UTI can be brought on by stress. Your cat could have been stressed from the move.
