Hey, everyone! I joined this so hopefully someone here can help me (Sorry if this gets long) . I have a cat who is probably a few months away from being 3 years old. I got her spayed about a year ago, almost a year to date. Because I (regretfully) waiting too long to get her spayed, she started peeing on things before that. And she hasn't stopped doing it. She pees on the living room couch, the small couch in my office, the lounge chair in 'her room' (spare room where her litter box is), and even recently noticed she peed on the carpet I just got back in December for the bathroom. I just recently borrowed my parents small shampooer to clean the living room couch and couch in my office, but she continuously still pees on them! I have to put things on the living room couches 24/7 just so she doesn't jump up there to pee, and less than an hour ago she peed right behind me on my office couch. I patted her butt and put her in her room and shut the door. I've noticed when I clean her litter box there's always poop in it, but rarely pee. So she's pooping in her litter box just fine but peeing everywhere else on my nice furniture. I was going to try one more expensive enzyme cleaner I found on Amazon that has good reviews of getting out the pee, but I've already cleaned these past spots so I am worried she will still pee on my stuff. Does anyone have any advice on what to do or why she is doing it? My husband is ready to get rid of her because she is constantly ruining all our furniture and at this point we can't even trust her. I have to always close my office door behind me (even though now she's obviously getting bold and just peeing on it while i'm in the room) and like I said we feel like we can't have the couches not covered in random **** or else she will go up there and pee. I've already taken her to the vet and they said she 'looked fine' and that it was 'behavioral'. They gave him Feliway and told me to put it where she spends the most time and has been peeing because it'll calm her down. I put it right next to the couch in the living room and she still peed on it. My mom got me the Feliway spray, I sprayed it everywhere and she still peed on it. I'm out of ideas right now. Do you think she is still peeing on these things because they smell of pee? Because that doesn't explain why she'd pee on my brand new bathroom carpet or spots I have cleaned in the past.
If she doesn't wise-up, soon, we will need to give her away because I don't need my furniture to constantly be ruined and house smelling of cat pee. She is treated good, in our opinion she's spoiled. She like my husband and I, comes up on our bed and cuddles with us every night, or will cuddle with us if we're in our "game room" on the couch (We don't sit in the living room anymore because she's ruined the couches).

Hopefully someone can help me because I can't find anything online with this issue, a lot of things online say it could be her not liking the litter or box but she still poops in it just fine. It's literally only when she pees that she goes everywhere except the litter box.

@AlyssaKF34,
No help or advise from me. What you describe is certainly typical of tom cats whose neutering was put off too long. I didn't know such behavior was also typical of the females.

Try getting her a 2nd litter box. One for pee, one for poop.

Or, in all the places she pees, put a small litter box in each spot, and clean it as soon as possible. Make it enticing for her.

Fresh Step clumping litter is the best.

Don't keep her water or food bowl near a litter box.

When you say you "patted her butt" after she peed somewhere, did you mean as in spanking? Yelling and hitting won't help.

That's for sure. I don't think a cat is capable of associating punishment with anything they might have done.

@roger,
I disagree - you can train a cat - but the best 'punishment' is a withdrawal of attention - they're smart enough to know they crossed a line. Or at least our two coonies are. Frank never gets on the kitchen bench (blowing on is face taught him that) and Ella has stopped destroying indoor plants and biting legs to get attention as she has finally figured being insanely cute is a more effective strategy - usually involves a trill and a belly roll.

Of course they are also smart enough to find infinite other ways to make mischief.

@AlyssaKF34,
Sorry - didn't actually read your post till just now.

Definitely behavoural - but the question is why? - have you asked Dr Google?

https://pethelpful.com/cats/why-is-my-cat-peeing-in-the-house

It seems to be saying 'marking' or 'inappropriate urination' can be caused by cat stress. Maybe you can find the source?

Update to this.
I notice this post from me was from July 2020.

In August I moved, and one of my purchases was a Purple bed. Basically the most comfy wonderful bed ever.

I tossed Otis on it day 1. For a moment he was getting ready to waddle off, took 1 and a half steps, and hasn't moved since.

When I go to bed, both Roland and Otis are stretched out sideways, taking up about 80% of the middle, leaving 10% on either side of them.

I've adjusted to not rolling over, either when I first get into bed, or when they climb on top of me, pining me down for the next 6 hours.
