You, however, are probably fed up with this behavior. Inappropriate urination is the most common, and least tolerated, type of inappropriate elimination in cats. She graduated from the University of Glasgow in with a degree in veterinary medicine and surgery.
Some cats develop a habit of urinating on carpet, which can be very frustrating for their owners. The smell of cat urine is offensive and often spreads throughout the house. Cat urine is also very hard to remove from carpet padding and fibers, which causes lingering odors.
Inappropriate urination is the leading cause of cats being surrendered to shelters. While there are a number of underlying causes, they can generally be broken down into medical causes, behavioral causes, or a combination of the two. When cats choose somewhere besides their litter boxes to urinate, veterinarians look for health concerns such as such as kidney disease, hyperthyroidism, diabetes, crystals in the urine a potentially life-threatening situation in male catsbladder stones, or bladder inflammation caused by an infection or even stress.
Gather up the revolting laundry, all the while cursing the day you obligated yourself to a creature who would do such a revolting thing. If there is a LOT of laundry, gather up just some of it—about enough for a low-setting load of laundry. Put the laundry in the washing machine and run a plain rinse cycle no soap or anything, just water. My washer has a pre-wash setting that agitates the clothes for either 2 or 4 minutes, then spins it out, but without running the whole cycle.
If you have a dog that sheds a lot, you probably have seen dog hair tumbleweeds rolling around between cleanings. Due to static charge, dog hair and cat hair just about clings to everything, including your clothes and towels especially towels and when they are separated in a washer, most of them end up in a drain pump filter. This kind of gunk not only creates unpleasant odor after few weeks, it also impedes water from draining, causing your washer to run longer than necessary.
Having trouble getting your cat to go in the catbox? Most households want their cats to use the litter box. So urinating on the couch, bed, wall, rugs, and ceramic tile, or in the bath tub, laundry basket, or kitchen sink is just not appropriate!
Hold their nose to it, yell and spank them. Worked for all my dogs when they were pups. I think it would work for cats as well.
You might be surprised that in some cases you might be better off not washing your hands after using the toilet. Western culture has become extremely clean, almost too clean! Yes, it might be a problem.
Not all trips to the toilet are created equal. But survey after survey including one in which scientists secretly camped out in bathrooms have revealed a dirty truth: people don't always wash their hands before they leave the bathroom. I can't see them, therefore they're not real.
