she seems maybe sadder and more pathetic, but was still accepting and respond to affection normally, and still can be playful

there isn't much I can individually do to get her better treatment except complain because the my step-dad (the owner) is on vacation, and I'm too young to individually take her to the vet myself

I keep forgetting you are young.. you seem much older by your posts. This is going to sound weird but see if she'll drink some cranberry juice until you can get her to the vet. It will help flush her urinary tract.

Question for cat people

How many litter boxes for 2 cats?

Right now we have one standard sized one, and one large one. It's been working fine, until about a week ago when I discovered that the cats had started peeing in our storage boxes. Lots of stuff thrown out.

I don't know if they're doing it because the boxes are attractive to them (and in a nice, dark, quiet place) or if the litter is too soiled for them to want to use it.

The last time they did this was the day after I cleaned both litter boxes, so it doesn't seem like it's an over-used litter box thing.

Any advice?

It has more to do with just how many cats do you have...it also has to do with how big your home is. For example, if you have more than one story, I'd suggest having one on each floor.

We have 2 for 2 cats, both large I guess. They don't exactly get along so they don't go near each other's food/water/litter, so we have to have 2.

3. You should have one for each cat, and then one more. So when I had 4 cats, we had 5 boxes.

I'd get two boxes, for two cats. You also want to rule out anything medical. The most common reason for cats urinating outside the box are urinary infections.

Homer (the stray my sister found) had his first vet visit today. He appears to be perfectly healthy , except he tested positive for hook worms , but thankfully they gave him a pill for that. He got his shots and goes back in 3 weeks for another hookworm pill and a booster shot.

The vet estimated that he was between 4 to 6 months old. They told my sister she could have him fixed anytime, so now she has to schedule that too.

So yay , healthy Homer!

This is an interesting discussion going on here - the vet said to my mum that in the case of her cat Sweep, it's her old age that's leading her to do this outside of the litterbox - anyone know of this problem? They said that it's as though she has forgot where to do it poor thing
