Hi, I'm trying to get some suggestions here.
We've been living in our duplex for a year now with our two cats. For the first six months, everything went fine. Then, one day, I woke up and there was pee on EVERYTHING! Kitchen counters, couch, carpet, kitchen table, bathroom sink, kitchen floor, every carpet. Some just spots, others full-out bladder busters! They had also knocked over every potted plant, climbed onto shelves and knocked things over. They destroyed the bottom of the pantry door, chewing through it (its one of the sliding plastic folding doors.) knocked everything down there and peed on food boxes (just the ones with pasta in them for some reason)
I don't know why. They've always been loved dearly, treated like my own kids. Their litter box was clean and everything.
Well, I cleaned the mess up (which took a few days). And I kid you not, the same evening that I had finished gluing the last plate back together, they did the exact same thing! It has been repeating itself over the past six months. When I went to renew the lease on our duplex, the landlord has said that the peeing needs to stop or we have to get rid of the cats.
We took the cats to the vet. There's no bladder infections, nothing that they can find. I spent several weeks cleaning the apartment. I spent a lot of money on a carpet and upholstery cleaner, several different products to get the smell out of the carpet. I was successful! The smell was gone. You couldn't even tell we had cats! Then..this morning. It was like they did a complete sweep. You couldn't look anywhere without seeing at least a little spot of urine.
I don't know what to do. I really don't know what to do. I can't spend every one of my days off doing nothing but cleaning up cat urine just to keep them.
Any suggestions on how to make them stop?
We love our cats a lot. Aside from this, they are so sweet and well behaved, great with my son and even do well on a harness to play in the park. I'm just exhausted of this and we can't just up and move just for the sake of the cats. Help would be greatly appreciated.Thanks
