Cats Peeing on Everything?

I have 2 female cats who are not fixed (I will be rectifying that this Wednesday) who are both approximately 2-3 years old. One has been an indoor cat since she was 5 weeks old and the other has been an only indoor cat for the last 6 months since I have had her. For the last month or so both of them have been peeing on my and my children's beds, blankets, and pillows on the couches, clothing left on the floors, etc.

I have tried just about everything I can and can no longer afford this, the laundry alone is making me go broke! Will getting these two females fixed help this problem? Any other ideas of what I can do? I don't want to have to get rid of my cats. :(

Hello!
I have 3 female cats and 1 male living indoors. The only cat that sometimes pee anywhere is the female cat that was neutralized when she was already 2 years old. The 2 female cats that were neutralized when just 8 month old are always using the litter box.

Still I think that to have your cat neutralized will help but as you say this happened very suddenly and as they seem to mainly pee on bed or clothes I think you could try to buy another brand of washing powder or softener as some chemical fragrances can be "agressive" from a cat point of view as it can recall them of the marking smells of an intruder cat on their territory.

Bleach or ammonia which is a componant commune to washing products and to urine are the tipical products that will make cats mark their territory but any product with a strong smell can make a cat pee to mark or defend a territory. When they are stressed they will "renew" the markings so it will also help to have the litter box or 2 litter boxes cleaned at least twice a day as the ammonia smell from the litter is also a stress for them.

Also check that the urine marks are not pink from blood traces (use a white litter for an easier checking for awhile) cats can also start peeing everywhere when they have a urinary problem but I am pretty sure that it comes from the washing products smell. This will take awhile as cats will still feel the smell when you will not feel it anymore.
So keep smiling and keep calm. Chasing them around and yelling will not help ( I know ! Done that ! ) as it will only increased the cats stress and they will pee even more. So remember that cats were created for man dream to cuddle a tiger. You would not yell at a tiger or chase it around ? would you ?

Hope this help !
