Have Cat Questions? Ask a Cat Vet Online.
1) On what surfaces are you finding urine?2) Are there other cats in the home? 3) What has been tried so far aside from litter box and a cat perch?4) Is he declawed?
On both vertical and horizontal surfaces?Have any veterinary diagnostics been performed? bloodwork? Urinalysis?
Thanks for the additional info. I understand this started about 2 years ago. Was the bloodwork and urinalysis performed since the symptoms began?Has your vet talked to you about using any behavioral meds?
This may be your next step, especially if your husband is tired of the behavior. Sometimes we never have a reason for a cat to be showing signs of inappropriate urination. Certainly, trying behavioral meds would be the wisest thing to do before deciding to get rid of him (which I understand you're not keen on.) If you have also not tried using feliway diffusers in your home, this may help with stress or other reason he may be urinating inappropriately.I would talk to your vet about using prozac, buspar, elavil, etc. to see if improvements are noted. This can take as much as daily medication for 4-6 months before you see the maximum improvement, but for some cats this fully eliminates the symptoms of avoiding the box and urinating where they shouldn't. I think this will be one of the better choices for the household as it may solve the concern for both you and your husband.
