In our household we have 4 cats. They’re all pretty healthy, except for one. She’s the sweetest, most lovable cat ever. She’s also very low-energy, overweight, and has had a history of multiple tooth decay.
She’s occasionally missed the litterbox slightly in the past, but recently, she’s taken to peeing on either the bathroom rug or the floor in front of the litterbox. Just those two places; never anywhere else. And she’s not even hiding it… last night, she peed on the floor while looking straight at my girlfriend. This is becoming a daily thing for her.
She’s not an angry cat. She doesn’t have a mean bone in her body. If you could think of the cat with the perfect personality, she’d be it. She loves to lie on my chest and lick my nose. She’s never once hissed, scratched, or bitten anyone, even under duress.
If she had a urinary tract infection, I imagine she’d be peeing everywhere. Besides, she just got back from the vet a few weeks ago, and all her systems check out OK. The litterbox is cleaned every day.
Does anyone have any idea what’s behind this behavior? How do I get her to stop?
