Cat Is Peeing On Clothing?Last year when I first adopted my cat in February, she had already had a habit of peeing on things and being stressed by my dogs just made it worse. When I finally moved out in August of 2018 it stopped all together. She was happy and loved that there were no little dogs to terrorize her. It's been over a year with no more accidents; up until last week, she hasn't peed on anything at all.
