Cat Has Started Peeing on the Couch?

We have a 3 year old cat that we have had since she was a kitten. She has started peeing on the couch. We have used the correct cleaners, but she keeps peeing on the couch whenever we are out of the room. The vet said she is heathy, we have tried calming collars, plug in pheromones, extra litter boxes, cleaning the boxes multiple times a day, and replacing the couch. We don't want to have to give her away, but don't know what else to try.

She is marking her territory. Did you get another pet or have a baby?

When our pup had incontinence issues and was otherwise healthy, we used diapers (human ones). I am not certain a cat would tolerate that, but it is something to try.

There are medications out there to give cats for incontinence issues--so maybe ask the vet which one is best (some can be purchased over the counter, if I remember correctly, and some need a script).

I don't know how easy your cat takes meds--I sat one that did well with it, put it in a spoonful of yogurt and it was gone, and other of my charge nothing would get the meds into her, so I had to rely on getting it in through a small amount of food over the day. And a third that the med was compounded to be a cream that got rubbed into her ear, which worked for that situation (thyroid).

Consider takking to you vet about the incontinence meds. Prayers for the kitty!

It sounds like you have considered a number of things. A couple more you can consider... Are there any outdoor or feral cats that visit your property where she can see or smell them? This can set off that marking behavior. You need to find ways to discourage the visitors. There are many products made for this, motion activated canned air, motion activated sprinklers etc. As a last resort block the view your cat has of the visitor. You will need to find your inner detective on this one.

Be sure and check patio doors and all doors for spray left behind by visitors. Your cat can smell it. You can also try putting aluminum foil on the couch when you are not there. Cats hate the feel of it on their feet and will avoid walking on it. Usually they just quit going there. Consider anything else that may be making her feel insecure. Some extra affection may help too, as well as some good play time. Try a different cat litter. They can very opinionated about that. Good luck.
