    Liquid Problem...

    Tuesday and Wednesday, someone peed on the bed. Both days of which I discovered as I was about to go to bed. Tuesday night I stripped the bed, put on my second set of bedding.

    I thought (hoped) this was just a one-off event. Then I discovered some dampness again as I was about to go to bed last night. I don't have a third set of bedding, so last night I turned the top sheet around so the peed-on part was farthest away from where I'd be sleeping. I covered the sheet with a fleece blanket, not quite full-size, that I just discovered I had the other day.

    I I wound up taking a large load of dirty laundry to the laundromat today because there was way too much for my apartment building machines.

    I shut both cats out of the bedroom for a lot of today. And I got a shower curtain to put over the bedding when I'm not going to be in the bed.

    I don't know who did this or how to determine which one. Or just what to do next. I don't want to be having one cat at a time in the room all day to see which one pees all over my bed again..

    Sigh...

    Pat, I'm sorry to hear about another pee incident!:
    There's the possibility that Galaxy's urinary tract infection has returned. I would take her to the vet first.
    Otherwise you probably should keep one kitty isolated to see who's doing it. Watch for different behavior, like licking private parts frequently and increased water consumption.
    I hope you can figure it out soon!

    Oh Pat, I'm sorry to hear it has happened again. I think Heidi's advise is a good idea, and keep the shower curtain on the bed until you want to use it.

    I so hope you'll be able to solve this soon.

    (((hugs)))


    Being the catlover you are, I'm sure you've heard of different reasons for this, but if not, here's a link - there are lots more on the web.

    Thank you, Heidi and Randi. I decided it was Galaxy, because it would be so hard for Sparkler to haul herself up onto the bed to begin with, and if she had done that, it would have been next to impossible to get herself into position to do those particular puddles.

    Yesterday because I had them shut out of the bedroom, there were no further samples on the bed, but I didn't know if there would have been one if the bed was available. Galaxy does drink from the water bowl fairly often, and she does little pees in one of the litter boxes fairly often.

    We went to see the vet this morning and have this checked out further. She does not have a UTI. They are checking out other possibilities, including diabetes.

    Since we got home, about 11:30 am, I've left the bedroom door open with the shower curtain on the bed. No pee on that so far!

    I hope you get some answers from the vet. Will they take x-rays to check for bladder stones?
