I have had two lovely Burmese boys just over 12 months now. They were originally inside for 6 months then went outside, but now because of where I live must stay inside. I do have a small outside pen, but can't leave them in there because of the rules in our complex. Anyway, one of them in particular has started peeing inside on the floor every single day now for over a month. I think he is stressed, but so am I. I'm close to letting them both go to a new home. I'm forever cleaning up. Please help.

Since your cat is use to be outdoors, now he's an indoor cat, maybe the litter box confuses your pet? Wild guess. Call your vet and ask for suggestions. :)
Here are questions related to My Cat Keeps Peeing on the Floor.
I have a 3 year old Siamese and a 1 and a half year old Russian Blue. I have had them together over a year. They both have started to recently pee on the floor. It's random and not in the same place. If one pees there, then the other does also. What can I do to get them to stop?
We have not changed anything or moved their litter box. They also continue to use the litter box for both peeing and pooping. So we don't think its a UTI because they are both doing it.
Please help us.

I would still have them checked out for UTI. One may have a UTI and the other one is peeing just because the other one has. Most cats with UTIs still use the litter box part of the time.
Are there any new cats in the neighborhood that they may be able to see (or hear) through the windows? That can be enough to set off their territorial behavoirs (marking). Sometimes outside cats will pee on your porch or near the front door and set them off. You may not be aware of it but the cats will smell it.
Those are the two things I thought of, but there are lots of good posts on this site if you do a search. Good luck.

My cat keeps peeing on the floor. I clean her kitty litter but she just keeps going for the floor! HELP?

She may also not like the particular litter you are using. You can try other types. Nothing stopped my cat from doing it, he just kind of stopped on his own. I used puppy pads in the area where he would pee which was right in front of the litter box, and he used those for several months until he decided to use the box again. Good luck! (07/06/2006)
I have a 2yr old Tabby cat who is very well potty trained with the cat box. He used to poop on my carpets and tile, but now he just keeps peeing on my bathroom floor tile in same spot more than once a day. What should/can I do to stop this from happening?
