Cat People I need your help....

Okay I have 5 cats and someone is peeing. I've now thrown out every bathroom rug I had and I just bought a pet stroller ( ) and someone peed in that too. I did find white fur in the pet stroller which would suggest it was my Bonzi but how do you stop them??? This isn't a brand new problem they peed on their mats that I've bought them in the past or beds or their scratching posts. I'm scared they are going to start on my carpets and my other rugs.

my husband wants to kill them...

My cat just started doing that too! Just in one room and I have no idea why out of the blue she started doing that.

She's been to the vet and no bladder infection or anything.

I hope you find a solution!!! How do you get rid of the smell too?

Would it be possible to keep Bonzi separated somewhere?

Back at my dad's, there was one time where we had 4 cats. We soon discovered that my darling Whiskers was having accidents. She was very old, so we thought her health might be failing. However, I saw her attempt to use the litterbox one day...only to have another cat come out from a hiding place and pounce on her. Terrified, Whiskers ran away...and peed on the rug. We realized that the other cats were too playful for her...and they were scaring her from using the litterbox.

Since Whiskers spent so much time in my bedroom anyway, we started keeping her in my room at all times (with the door shut, of course). After I moved out and couldn't take her with me ( ), we feared she would get too lonely in there...so Dad put up a screen door. Whiskers is able to sit at the screen and look out at everything. Dad also goes in and visits her. Sometimes, he's even able to leave the screen down, and the other two cats and the chocolate lab visit her...or she will even venture out.

Well I think it may be Bonzi but I'm not sure. I guess I will have to seperate each one until I discover who it is. See the thing is Bonzi is everyone's friend. He is the big mush. No one picks on him and he only picks on his brother (and even that is very rarely). He is only 7 and he is the biggest (fattest) cat in the house.

Well luckily I just keep throwing things out so there is no smell. I originally thought it was the baby but I may be wrong. Well I guess they are going to have to be seperated one by one .

Try using several litter pans. Some cats don't like to share litter pans so instead will go on the floor. Also make sure the litter pans are kept very clean. Not that you are not already doing this but just thought I would mention it just in case.

I would say first rule out anything medical like a urinary infection, but I guess first you have to figure out which one is doing it..

Here are some links on inappropriate urination.

You need something with enzymes in it. There are a couple very good products.. Nature's Miracle and Zero Odor. I think they can be found online. Also there's a spray called OUT! that you can get at the pet store.

All of the above advice is right on...another idea is to try this litter called Cat Attract. It's got some sort of herb in it that literally attracts them. Several people I know with multiple cat households for whom this is an issue off and on have used it with great success...

Here's the web address to the company that makes it...

How many litterboxes do you have? How often do you clean them? Are these big puddles of urine or small spots? Unfortunately the more cats you have, the greater the chances of having issues like this - goes up 10% with the addition of each cat.

Can you set up a video camera to try to catch them in the act?
