Izzee has moved quite a few times.. when i first adopted her she was fine. used her litterbox always.. then overtime i started smelling urine in my closet.. on my shoes.. on my clothes.. etc. i tried cleaning the smell as best i could.. and i put her in a very very small room with her litter and food and water.. i used a babygate rather than closing the door. that way she had some sort of interation.. she started jumping over the babygate.. so i had to put a blanket over that to make it look like a wall. after 24-48 hours i let her out.. and from then on she used her litterbox. which.. horray for me! was a tough luck. she started meowing all the time.. so i figured she was in heat. i moved out and took and got a new apartment and both cats came with me of course. and at the new apartment both cats used the litterbox everytime. i cleaned it every 2 or so days when it looks and smelled awful. i had a box in my closet and i had a box in one of the spare rooms. due to roommate issues i moved out again and finally have a stable home. when we got all settled both cats were doing wonderful. everything was fine.. up untill izzee's meows came back.. but this time they were longer.. louder.. and more horrifying. she started peeing on everything. my curtains... rugs.. clothes.. you name it! i got fed up and said enough is enough its time to get spayed. we took her to the vet and come to find out she has a urinary tract infection.. which was my first instinct. i felt awful. no wonder why she's peeing everywhere!.
the vet put her on a liquid type of medication. she was ordered to be seperated from Brunella with a seperate litterbox.. and once the two weeks was up on this medication she went in to get her urine tested..
(mind you every once in awhile she's peeing on the hardwood floor as well as the litterbox)
well that medicine did not work. so the vet switched her over to a pill medicine for 21 days.. and we just went in a week ago to check her urine.. the vet sent it to the lab.. he said it is getting better but he's not sure if its completely gone.
so he gave us this plug in that helps relieve stress and anxiety so she maybe would just keep it in the litterbox..
its been a week now and im still scrubbing urine off the floor. am i just not giving it enough time? she's had the same litter since we got her. she's using the same litterbox with the cover over it.. if she doesnt use the one with the cover then im cleaning up numerous amounts of urine and stool around the litter box... getting rid of her isnt an option.. my vet is now leaning towards it being a behavior issue now that her infection has cleared up..
