Urine marking

by Brad P. Scobey

Hi there; what a wonderful site you have!

You had mentioned: Max, the largest cat, is just a good, mellowed out oaf. His bad trait is "urine marking" to let the upstairs cats know that the main level is his. I've got that under control most of the time but with a few relapses.

We have bear, an 18 pound Bombay who is here with his two sisters we fostered and then adopted. Like Max, he is a sweet oaf (lights are on but no one's home) but......he is marking the pathway in the living room where he hangs out most of the time by the front door.

You said you got yours under control, we will take even most of the time at this point. He has even started to defecate there as well now. They all get along, never any fighting and they all groom each other. He certainly has as much attention as the girls and lays on his back, etc. so we know it's not feeling neglected, etc.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. He is so sweet but we just can't keep on cleaning his routine.

Thank you so much for your time; we really appreciate it.


Seems like this last few weeks almost all questions are related to inappropriate elimination by cats. They certainly make their displeasure with "something" known by this act, but we usually don't know what the "something" is.

I don't have much new to offer but you can read the articles listed in Cat Inappropriate Elimination Questions Answered as well as Cat Diapers.

You can also check out the topics on the pages index at Cat Menu and take notice of this page... Animal Behaviorists.

I hope you can resolve the unpleasant situation with your cat and surely wish you success.
