I am the owner of 4 cats.  They are 9 years old.   They were rescued from a farm, mother, father and 2 babies.  We moved a couple months ago into a new home and at least 2 of the cats are urinating all over the house.  On the furnature, floors and even on the kitchen counter.  I have no idea what is going on.  They each have their own litter box and always have.  They are happy and healthy.  I can't see any difference in the behaviour aside from them thinking the entire place is the litter box.


We did move from an apartment to a house so they never really saw the outside before but they have no desire to go outside.  When the door is open they have never tried to go out but they like looking out the windows. There are many cats in the area and they cry at night sometimes.


We have moved the litter boxes around and even replaced them all.  Any ideas?  Much appreciated.

Thank you

Were there cats living in the house before you moved in? Maybe they smell the other cats urine and they are trying to mark their territory? Are cats in the neighborhood urinating near your house? Maybe the cats smell that. We had neighborhood cats urinating on our door and our cat smelled it and we put some stuff by the door to keep the cats away and that helped. Also, the Feliway infuser might help. It helped our cats adjust to a new house.
