Dear Catster reader,

Almost two years ago, we invested numerous resources and rebuilt the Catster community. With new hardware, software and personnel, we did our best to satisfy the many users who shared their thoughts, pictures, questions, and love for and of their pets with us and friends. It was a thriving community with many users. We hoped, however, there would be more like you.

Times and habits have changed and we are sad to announce that the Catster community will be closing down on July 20, 2019.

Catster magazine, and the associated social media sites are NOT shutting down. We encourage you to continue reading the content found in the pages of the magazine and the web sites, commenting through the mechanisms provided and sharing your ideas and comments with us and your fellow readers.

Instructions for accessing pet profiles were shared with everyone in 2017. The instructions can be found elsewhere within the forum. AFTER JULY 20TH, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ACCESS THIS CONTENT. And, effective immediately, we are no longer able to answer questions about the community.

Thank you for your support and we look forward to serving you through our magazine and website.

    you dont say how old she is or how long you have her. i got rikki at 4wks old and kept her in the bathroom with her litter box for a few days. of course i let her out when i was home but when i was gone that's where she stayed. this way if she didn't use the box at least i knew to look in that one room instead of and entire house. also you should keep her out of the bedroom till she gets use to her box

    It's not really normal for a kitten to pee everywhere. It could be "marking" her territory, but don't only males do that? Have you had her to the vet? If she can't help it then she might have a bladder infection. Keep her box VERY clean. Maybe she doesn't like the litter you have. Once I got some stuff that looked like rock salt and I told my meowmie that was not acceptable!! Or, maybe if you play with her she gets so excited that she can't make it to her box in time.

    OH BOY! This is a problem! The first thing you must do is to take your kitten to the vet to make sure she does not have a urinary tract infection. Sometimes if cats have them they will pee wherever they want to because it simply hurts them when they go. If peeing has hurt them while using the litter box, they will associate the litter box with pain & will not use it. Are there any changes in your house? Cats like routine & can't handle change, so if something is different she may be reacting to it by peeing. Finally, getting rid of cat urine is a real problem. Once a cat has peed on your bed and elsewhere, residual crystals remain in the fabric & clothing that they can smell, but you can't. Since they have associated that as a place to pee, they will do it again. Scrubbing it with basic cleaning products won't work. There are various products out there that can help - Urine Off and Nature's miracle. PS: all cats can spray, including females and males! Spayed and neutered, too
